  • The spot above the door
    on Jan 12, 2014 in DIY custom mods exterior
    Remember this spot? I finally got around to laser cutting the panels for above the front doorway. There’s something about the front of this house that just never looked like the front and I wanted to fix that. Click here … Continue readin...
  • New wood
    on Oct 23, 2013 in Uncategorized
    Wood counters. They’re cheap, they’re solid, and good looking, but man they get gross. They started out looking shiny and new (a relief after this). We’ve since used, oiled and waxed them for the last three years, cleaning as we go...
  • Down the block
    on Aug 22, 2013 in Uncategorized

  • The kitchen ceiling is DONE
    on May 31, 2013 in Uncategorized
    Working on the kitchen has been an exercise in fits and starts. One task would begin, then be delayed, then another part of the project would rear its ugly head. Rinse, repeat. So it’s been hard to figure out a … Continue reading →...
  • Ceiling: The Journey Begins
    on Mar 25, 2013 in Uncategorized
    Aaron made it over and plyboarded the whole ceiling. I’m glad he did because I’m quite certain we couldn’t have done it ourselves in three times the amount of time. Oh look, he’s already done! And there you can see … Con...
  • Still working on the walls
    on Feb 22, 2013 in Uncategorized
    Well, skim coating the walls only made the bubbles beneath the wallpapers more obvious. So I sanded and applied more mud. Rinse, repeat. Also patched a few holes we put in when we were crowbarring the ceiling and spackled ONE … Continue reading...
