2015 Wish List

No Comments

Oh, where to start!

This spring’s projects are going to be exciting!  We have refinanced the mortgage (and the home equity line of credit) with our credit union.  One payment instead of 2…woot! woot!

The first thing on the list that we want to do is to finish the front porch…I would love to see it screened in before the mosquitoes notice.  I don’t imagine that this will be an easy task, but I have full confidence that Scott will set it all right.

The second thing is I want to get rid of all of the paneling…which means gutting just about every wall in the house (I know we could just put the drywall up over the paneling, but I dont want to lose an inch round every room and I want to see all the electric wires and most likely add some outlets…running extension cords across the living room floor for my laptop is just crazy!

There are still alot of smaller projects that will come out of these two big projects…so stay tuned!!!

Basement – Base Cabinets…Nov 15, 2014

No Comments

Last weekend I decided that I was going to buy a piece of vinyl flooring and put it underneath Jack’s base cabinets.  Everything that I want to do down in the basement has been put off because of the water that comes up from the center of the floor.  (hydrostatic pressure).  (I will link this to the page that explains the basement water issues at a later date)

So…Jack’s cabinets have been sitting in the basement for way too long, he busted his ass building them…and they are beautiful, but they were custom made for their kitchen in DE…we couldn’t leave them there!!

Today, I put down the vinyl and put the base cabinets in…I would say they are permanently installed.  Since we had done all the kitchen cabinets with Scott, I was feeling fairly confident that I could do this!  The floor isnt level so that really was the only trick…I wedged a 1x under one end of the room and smaller wedges to the other end and screwed them into place.

I will get my dart board back up soon!
