Re: House Projects

Garage looks great!! I plan on doing a bit of a garage overhaul once the Lexus can move on it's own out of the garage.

Re: House Projects

Thank you! I wish I would have gone a shade darker on the garage walls, but overall I am really happy with how it all turned out.

Re: House Projects

Yeah I hear ya. What you could consider doing in the future, is adding a second color to the wall a few feet up. A little darker, and add some color, kind of a cool touch I think. It's what I would like to do to mine someday, but pretty low on my to-do list haha.

Re: House Projects

Looking good! Nice and clean!

I'm about done with the lower level bathroom so ill post that up shortly. Haven't done an update in a while. Still working on the wet bar too. Garage painting didn't get done this fall, so I plan to do that in the spring. I want to do a two tone color scheme similar to that pic above Brandon. I dont think ill epoxy the floors, would love it but not sure how long ill be in this house.

Re: House Projects

Nice work. I'm hoping to get the garage moved along this winter.

Want to access the storage area above it, purchased a pull down ladder a couple of months ago for it.

Also purchased 10 - four foot LED lights from Costco. They were on sale for $20/set.

Re: House Projects

Nice Aaron! I'd love to somehow get access to the attic above our garage. I'm not really sure how that works since ours is so high, and it's not exactly built to walk around up there, and there's insulation blown everywhere.

Re: House Projects

I have an access that I throw xmas and other stuff up there using a ladder. A pull down ladder would be nice though. I have to insulate it in the spring too. Brandon if you have insulation already up there, you could throw some plywood on top of it and make a storage area. I know your ceiling is super high though, might be tough.

Re: House Projects

In prompt to project at our house. Wife left a clogged sink running for 20 minutes yesterday after noon. Was in our master bathroom on the main level. Made a huge mess, our bedrooms carpet was pretty wet. Then went downstairs to the room below and turned on the lights. Bulbs popped immediately. Light fixture was completely full of water, carpet was drenched below the fixture.

Had a water damage guy come this morning. Looks like our bathroom vanity is damaged. We need to either repair or replace it as it will be a haven for mold. The upstairs in general though he said is OK as long as we pull some of the carpet back and keep fans on it. Downstairs, he said same thing so we pulled back half the carpet and fans going (thanks again for the fans aye-aye-ron). Ceiling he said is probably fine as we drilled a bunch of holes to try and vent it, and have a fan blowing. So all in all not too bad I guess, but not exactly what we needed right now.

I didn't take any pictures upstairs, but here's the room underneath.

Here's the stack of soaking wet towels I used to initially soak up water on the floor.


Here's what I vacuumed up after with the shop vac. And note the carpet was still very wet even after this.


Here's what I dumped out of the light fixture.


Aftermarket ventilation mod. I drilled a bunch of holes to see if water was pooled up anywhere else, as well as help ventilate up there. No water came out, so looks like it all pretty much pooled up in the fixture.


here's kinda how the room looked last night. I setup 3 big fans in there later (2 pointed at carpet, one pointed straight up at ceiling / speed holes).

Re: House Projects

Well just got an update. The tech came out and setup industrial dehumidifiers. While doing so, he did more testing and found more water in other spots of the ceiling. He also discovered that bedroom ceiling is insulated (never realized that). So that means it probably wont get enough airflow, and we need to cut the ceiling apart and get that insulation out.

Looking like insurance claim at this point now. Greaaaaat...

Re: House Projects

Super shitty. Insurance claim might be worth it if you dont want to do the work yourself, high home deductible sucks though.

Re: House Projects

$1000 deductible, not too bad. We weren't sure if we were gunna use insurance or not. But in light of this new info, it's going to easily hit it and more since the ceiling has to come down too.

I could do a lot of it myself, but with our two little dude, I can't keep on top of my to-do list I have already. I guess that's why we have insurance.

Re: House Projects

Yea, tough to get anything done with little ones. You'll probably hit that $1,000 mark quick if you did it yourself, plus if you have professionals do it you'll know it was done right. If my wife did that she'd be getting an earful! haha

Re: House Projects

Yeah, my wife feels pretty dumb about it. It's funny how she kinda played it off as no big deal, yet she is constantly nagging about water droplets on the windows causing mold, haha!

Well new news yet again. The ceiling does NOT have insulation, he was mistaken. So ceiling shouldn't have to come down. They came in with an infra-red scope and spotted a couple other spots on the ceiling and drilled holes. We have fans galore running up and down. And they brought in two massive commercial dehumidifiers. They will come back tomorrow and look again, but they are predicting the only thing is going to be the vanity. ceilings, walls, carpet, pad, should all be fine they think. So it may end up as an out of pocket deal now.

Re: House Projects

We had a massive leak at our old house that trashed the kitchen ceiling similar to this. We had a company come out and take care of all of it and it ended up being almost $12k. Ours ruined the floor and cabinets though too. If you just have to re-rock the ceiling and put up knockdown, that's not too hard to do yourself with a rented lifted and sprayer.

Re: House Projects

Yeah I'll be doing the basement myself, extremely simple. They came out again this morning and everything is drying up really well. They are going to replace the bottom of the vanity, and a couple drawers, and thats it they think. And they will do a carpet steam clean at the end. Probably end up a little over a grand after repairs and renting the drying equipment. Coulda been a lot worse.

Re: House Projects

Thought I'd share the one remodel I took on with just my Dad and frankly isn't 100% done with paint, but it was my first time doing tile and happy how it went!

Re: House Projects

I'm considering taking on a tile shower project at home. It's currently a fiberglass setup. So would need to be gutted, then built out correctly.

My question is, what is "correctly", and do you believe it's achievable by someone who has never done it before?
