That old house #10: The End - (I think)

06-27-2013 08:26 PM by BillyJ | 10 comments »

This project was completed in early December, but still had a punch-list to finish off (touch up painting, 3rd screws in hinges, etc.). Overall, everything on this job went well. I can’t say I am sorry that I took it on, as I learned a LOT in this never-ending ordeal. When I was working on that list last night, she handed me her “list” of things she thought were missing. She was 100% correct – they were all missing because every item was new to the project. I told her ...

The Son's Room #2: Day 3. To the finish.

08-04-2012 12:57 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 6 comments »

Got up at 5:30. As soon as it was light enough, I had an extremely gratifying round of priming. I realized that every stick of door trim for the entire house is primed. It’s 7:50. Jr is asleep. I’m getting that cold glass of water ready as Gary recommended. You learn the most useful things here.

The Son's Room.

07-31-2012 08:28 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 7 comments »

My son has one year of high school left. I have changed my plans for doing the house so we can get his room next. Years ago I painted a mural on 2 of his walls. The wall paint we keep. I need to touch up the base color here and there but painting will not be a major chore. Another minor chore will be to get the wobble out of his ceiling fan. It’s a nice looking, brushed nickel, Hunter fan so we are keeping it. It’s about 5 year old but I still see similar stuff in the box st...

Simple Hall Way redo. #5: Not so simple

07-19-2012 04:58 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Day 10: Yesterday. I started dry fitting my base boards and I got completely twisted. To my credit, I put the compressor away without firing a single shot. I opened up a forum question instead and got some really sound advice. The sound advice is unfortunately going to set my project back by as much as a week. It will be worth it in the end. Now I’m thinking about plinths, coping, caulking another other wonderful subjects to make those baseboards look just so. Day 11: Today (for a fe...

Simple Hall Way redo. #4: Day 7

07-16-2012 04:18 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 9 comments »

This was definitely a long day. I did a door – big deal. But I was determined to finish the floor. It was 6:00pm by the time I got all the tile down. At 7. I got home with the grout. I added water to the bucket from the hose and I said “That looks like 2 quarts!” No more eyeballing the water. It took 1.3 bags of grout to get the right consistency from my eyeball method. I started grouting an began to wonder about the expert advice I had received about the edges....

Simple Hall Way redo. #3: The big slowdown on day 3.

07-11-2012 03:50 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 9 comments »

I was busy all day but don’t feel like I have much to show for it. I painted the closet. Those suckers are little rooms. It took the better part of 3 hours. I touched up some of the trim work, used the shop light to find flaws in all my paint job. Touched those up as well. I under cut all the door frames, scraped the last bit of junk off the floors and marked my lines. I rigged up a couple of saw horses in the garage. I put a sturdy deck screw into the closet door then clamped a ...

Simple Hall Way redo. #2: Day 2, Texturing corners, painting and dog hair!

07-10-2012 03:07 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

I got my corners smoothed out then blended in some crows foot pattern. I got out my shop lights so I could start painting. What do you know. I had done a lousy job on one section of my texture blending. Note to self. Use the shop lights during texturing. I started painting one side of the door frames down to the floor. The doors I left alone – for now. I’ll paint them two at a time in the garage. The main thurst of the oil painting was to a) paint the part that was ...

That old house #1: Old house - new kitchen

08-19-2011 03:55 PM by BillyJ | 5 comments »

I began this project a while ago and just now had some time to start writing about it. This is one of those projects that hold a surprise behind every swing of the hammer. Here is what I have to work with. It’s an older home. Built in 1939, it started out as a three-room house. Owner after owner left their mark. Unfortunately, almost all of the additions and renovation jobs were done by people who owned stock in fastener or plaster companies. The plaster is that good stuff –...
