It had been so long since I logged in that I nearly forgot my account password. I blame all the fun which was being had. 2,500+ miles on my bicycle this summer, a couple trips to Utah and Oregon, and so on. As for the house, the kitchen was wrapped up last time this year (floors and tile backsplash), some little things here and there, exterior doors were replaced with the help of my friend Mr. Lew Danger, and at the moment I’m finishing up trim work on the interior of those new doors. I’m going to miss some work here but if I wait any longer the pressure of trying to list every little thing will only grow and grow. I’ll certainly try to stay up on these updates from now on!
Pulling up old kitchen vinyl plank.
Some sort of sub sub floor underneath.
Back stair landing was rough.
Pulling wood from the bathroom to patch in a previous bad repair in the kitchen.
Royal Floors did an amazing job of weaving in “new” planks on a square damaged section.
New bullnose and refinished maple in back hall.
Skipping way ahead, but all done and beautiful!
Found some electrical issues when doing the tile.
It wasn’t quite this easy, but all done again!
The other side.
Old front door. It was ill fitting and leaked air like crazy. The screen door had already been removed prior to this picture.
A little concerning to see a giant hole where the door used to be.
Might as well ride a motorcycle in and out of the house.
New work starting to go in.
Whoa, look at that! It’s done! Lew is that amazing.
Back door explosion.
Resetting some uneven brick.
Sill plate in. I love powder nailers.
Wow, again, more magic and it’s in! A screen door was added later but isn’t pictured installed here.
Adding door jamb extensions to match the new thinner door frame to the existing structure. I also added a new bit of drywall up above the door.
Same thing for the front. Also had to add about an inch of wall all around since the new doors are a standard size to replace and older, and slightly larger size. Texture, paint, and trim going back up yet to come.
