Re: House Projects

So tonight I started sanding the edges by the wall with a small palm sander thinking it was no big deal. About 30 minutes into barely cutting into the wood and the sandpaper flinging off 5 times. I went to home Depot and rented their edge sander. That made quick work of almost all of the corners. The tighter corners I'll hit with a handheld detail sander.

I also took some more pics of the wall we are moving back to it's original spot. The previous owners hacked this whole house together. Glad to breathe some new life into it.


Also, my back hurts like a mofo.

Re: House Projects

That's a lot of work! Staying the same color(stain)? Or changing it up?

We love the "blonde" look so if we can find just a clear coat that would be what we would choose. The lighter wood lightens up the rooms.

The parquet flooring in the hallway is getting removed but the previous owners tore out the original hardwoods so we aren't sure what we are going to do there. We would love to put some hardwoods in there get as close as possible to the originals but i'm not sure if that's possible. The home depot guy suggested Bauer Brothers to see if they have salvaged hardwoods.

We are going to re tile the kitchen when we remodel that and I'm going to check the soffit to see if it's removable. There is a light in there so hopefully it's not going to be a very intrusive job.

Re: House Projects

I need to build cabinets for my garage as well. I sheetrocked the whole thing, installed all the LED cans, heat and A/C, then quit. Still needs mud, tape, paint and cabinets. I have to quit buying car projects and make the garage a great place to work first.

I'm a little hesitant to use particle board on the cabinets as it absorbs any liquids like a sponge, but I'm sure a good oil based paint would fix that. B-man, I'll have to swing over and check the progress one of these days, I need to light a fire under my ass.

Re: House Projects

Yeah plan is an oil based primer sealer. Then I'll use a,latex paint for the top coat.

Re: House Projects

You finish those cabinets up Brandon and get any use out of them?

I'm trying to figure out what to do to my garage and think the material you used would be awesome to save some coin and I would like to probably paint match to match the garage color eventually anyways.

Any more updates from Pat? haha I need some motivation to get out in the garage and organize/clean and come up with idears.
