Little House in the Heights #3: Demo days

04-29-2013 10:43 PM by BillyJ | 16 comments »

The demolition continues in this segment, with the jack-hammer getting the best of me. Although I rarely get the chance to rejoice during demo, this time I did. Usually I look at the job and think to myself, “It really doesn’t look THAT bad,” then find out that the concrete is 10” thick in the exact spot I am going to bust up (only because they had accidentally dug too deep and had some leftover cement). It happens to me more often then not. I’ve had experienc...

House Renovation #1: A Family and Friend Renovation

My first adventure in refurbishing was in 1974. I added a 17×27 addition to my ranch style home in Northfield Village, Ohio.

The original floor is tiles set upon sand ( as was done 200 years ago), and the sand was upon the clay beneath the house, did I mention that this is a very old property. This part of...

Rental House Work #1: Expect the unexpected!

08-22-2009 05:42 PM by 3fingerpat | 4 comments »

A couple of months ago we visited our property and decided to come back up in Aug to do some “light” work on the house since we were not going to renew the lease with the tenants at that time. We scheduled a roofer to install a new roof, two new skylights, new vent caps and drip edge drains all around. Also, needed to replace some fascia and soffit boards we found that were rotted at the same time. We also planned to have a contractor replace one wall of siding in the back of t...
