I built these two storage shelving units for my basement. They were super easy to build. View on YouTube
The mere mention of problems related to the basement or foundation of a structure often results in immediate stress and headaches for any homeowner. This fact remains true because people do not often understand what is causing the problems or what will be involved in fixing the situation while preventing further complications in the future. With this knowledge and the right repair company in mind, homeowners can approach any dilemma with confidence, knowing that they have the power to reg...
Home Offices have never been more popular or practical than right now. They give you access to everything you need to get the job done without the rush hour commute and endless birthday parties. Even larger businesses can benefit. Home offices help save money on location and other overhead costs, as well as travel expenses (read: gas and maintenance costs) incurred with routine driving. And less driving is another great way to go green. The biggest question is: where do you put it? Here ar...

Yea, we’ve all heard about the ultimate ‘man cave’ finished basement. You know, the place where a man can drink beer and talk sports with his buddies on Sunday’s. But what about the ladies? They make up a large portion of homeowners and in most cases are the ones initiating remodeling projects in their homes. So, I wondered, what would their dream basement renovation consist of? I figured I’d go right to the source, so via LinkedIn I asked some Central PA women this very question. What did...
We went with 2 color scheme for the floor using the VCT tiles from Congoleum. Black and red are the colors we chose (Ebony AL-21 and Santa Fe Clay AL-64). They seem to go real well with the rest of the room. Both colors were a special order from Menards and we had to wait about 1.5 weeks to get them in. Each color ended up being 9 boxes. At the end of the job we are left with 1 box each. At this point I’ll probably end up keeping those. For the pattern we chose the diamond ch...
Since I joined up on the LumberJocks side of the site, I wanted to take a few minutes and post a progress on my basement build out here. First off a quick info about myself. My daytime job is in IT for a small family owned business. I support their infrastructure (servers, workstations, laptops, printers, cabling, etc.). Pretty much everything I get my hands on. I am a jack of all trades and master of none :). Doing wood working and any DIY stuff around the house allows me to blow o...
Here’s a couple current pictures of my project. Still to do is wainscoting and trim, storage door and storage furniture, mirrors, door T&G ceiling maybe.
Here’s some progress pictures. Hopefully I can get the photos to work. Here’s where I started, with lovely flower tiles, holes in the wall, rusted tub, poor electrical, vinyl over sticky tile flooring, etc etc etc. Around here I was just about done all the demolition work, and went about repairing and replacing the plumbing. Now the hot water line actually goes to the Hot side of the (new) mixing valve. Novel concept eh? New sub-floor, two layers of 3/4 ply, cement board,...
I hung the projector screen tonight to check it out. I was having concerns about the size of it. It went up easily enough for being hung by one person.After hitting the button on the remote it was very nice to watch it slowly lower itself into the room. I think it’s a perfect size and I like the height that it ends up hanging. I was very happy right up until I hit the up button… and it didn’t go up. Now I’ll be on a support call with them tomorrow. :O( Not the be...
