They finished the siding today. I re-evaluated the electrical system. I opted to go with a ventless propane heater in the tractor garage and a 2 1/2 gal under-sink water heater in the woodshop. The combination of the two allowed me to drop the service back to a 90A line from the house. It saved about $800. The stairs are going in tomorrow. They should finish up the exterior early next week. Then the fun starts with the electrical install! I’m using T-8 bulbs in the fluo...
Four eBay listings in two days. All have gone right in front of my eyes. Most for just a hair more than I had bid just at that moment. The sad thing is, I was settling for most of these tools. That’s right, they weren’t exactly what I wanted. The handles looked good, the blade looked good, they were pretty rust free…and yet, I didn’t want them. Why? Well, they were in good shape, that’s why. Earlier today, I said on a forum, “Give me your poor too...

I went to the Internet and typed in “How to make a Pencil Post Bed” One of the hits I got was 3 Youtube video’s on just making the rails for the bed.They were done by a guy I ne...
Next phase of the room is the wainscoting.We chose an A&C style from books we had seen. This will include a plate rail as well.We have also installed push button light switches. Of course the outlets in the room had to be changed from white to brown also. Back to the shop dimensioning lumber. After a test section was made up, it was set in place for final review. A few more adjustments and finish and then it is back to the house again. This is just leaning in pl...
After the woodwork was finished on the doors, we decide we should remove the carpet after all. I know the old hardwood floors below are not salvageable. Walls and built ins have been moved or removed. So now it is time for hardwood floor.

I live in an old somewhat of a bungalow style house.It had been “updated” over the years (read in poorly remodeled” before we bought it.I have been working on it for years fixing past “updates” We enjoy the Arts & Crafts style and are trying to finish the house to the degree. I redid the living room years ago and it has served us well.Now it is time to start adding the details we desire. Where we were…............... I started off with ...
