Little House in the Heights #2: Let the demo begin

04-16-2013 12:46 AM by BillyJ | 12 comments »

Okay. So I was off by a few days. I was going to post this segment several days (week???) earlier, but life got in the way. Back to the story. As all remodels begin, I assessed what was in front of me. Because the house is small, and I mean, SMALL, there is very little that I can actually do (or so I initially thought). Of course, after anyone looked at the hideous pink-flamingo bathroom (complete with a tub that would never come clean, fixtures that probably didn’t work, and a ca...

House Renovation #1: A Family and Friend Renovation

02-22-2011 02:05 AM by chief101 | 6 comments »

My first adventure in refurbishing was in 1974. I added a 17×27 addition to my ranch style home in Northfield Village, Ohio. I built it myself with the help of friends and a few issues of Time Do It Yourself magazines. These were very popular at the time and extremely helpful. The addition had a cathedral ceiling, main room 17×19, exposed beam, an 8×13 laundry room, in ceiling stereo speakers, and recessed lighting. One wall 17ft was an all split brick fireplace. Mason Bill Swa...

Laundry room #1: Gut, clean and start repairs

05-30-2010 04:42 AM by Woodcanuck | 3 comments »

Where to start? I’ve got a before picture hiding somewhere on my camera, I’ll probably post it as a project or throw it in as another post in the series. Our laundry/furnace room is in the basement, roughly 12’x12’. The furnace takes up a little under one quarter of the space, no changes planned here. The rest needed work….a LOT of work! Maybe I’ll start with the history. We had some drainage issues right behind the laundry room, creating a cycle ...

My free air compressor is costing a fortune #1: The little woman got her new fridge today

11-08-2009 05:16 AM by Bothus | 4 comments »

I actually told the story about my free air compressor on Lumberjocks but since it has led to a kitchen/laundry room remodel I decided to follow up here. The short version is that I got a free air compressor years ago and it recently quit working. I went to Sear’s Outlet to see if they had any and ended up buying the little woman a new French door refrigerator that we were planning to buy after the first of the year. The new fridge wouldn’t fit where the old fridge was becau...

Basement Renovation #1: How the project came to be

02-09-2009 11:26 PM by zeddicus | 10 comments »

When we moved into our house we put hardwood throughout the upstairs and carpeted two large playrooms downstairs. This was great for a while, but one year after we moved into our house our region had a storm that dumped 13” of rain in 24 hours. The main playroom was soaked through. We decided to get rid of the carpet and tile instead as well as install new drains around the house. The drains were just completed and the tile has been down for a while, but since the room was empty i...
