    What do you recommend for batten insulation? Found out the blow-in crap was really light over my daughter's room, and I want to better insulate it.

    more blow in > that batts

    Last night I finished wiring up the outlets and new can lights in Jen's office, definitely not a dark dingy basement room any longer Also re-ran and re-wired the washing machine outlet. Due to that, I now need to re-wire the downstairs bathroom. The routes some of this wiring takes just makes me wonder how the place didn't burn down already

    Natural gas line and meter was installed on Friday.


    Which means the furnace, water heater, and stove go in on Monday/Tuesday. Which means I have to pull down a lot more basement ceiling, and remove some brick-work from the side of the house, all today. Wow, life is ****ing busy right now.

    We did get almost the entirety of the ceilings pulled down in the basement, ready for the furnace install to start tomorrow. Also took out the corner of the brick planter box where the vents for the furnace will run outside. And wired up another outlet in the bedroom.

    Arron, I think I figured out how to re-arrange the garage so I can get more use of the space while I am working on building out the loft. Means a brew-day could happen soon after the little one arrives.

    Joel, here's a picture:


    It shows: most of the basement ceiling is removed, there's some new lighting installed, and my tap setup is just about finished oh, and we took all the garage shelving, I built all of it

    the beer fridge died after it arrived in the basement, so I salvaged the doors, mounted them on the wall, and built a keezer in the utility room behind the wall

    I'm going to be putting up a lean-to behind my garage, for outdoor, covered, storage. So, last weekend, my dad and I dug out and leveled the space. Previous owners have just used this spot for dumping their yard debris, for 60 years, so there was a little bit of dirt to move.

    This pile is ~5.5 cubic yards of dirt (half a full-size dump truck)




    Placed concrete piers (2 feet deep).




    And then on Saturday I moved in 3 yards of crushed gravel, and we set the uprights and first set of cross pieces (no pics of that yet).

    Little things around the house that make you feel accomplished
    • Hooked up temporary downspout on front gutter so that it doesn't back up and run down the side of the house (found some siding that needs to be replaced)
    • Fixed leak around vent for bathroom fan, hooked bathroom fan ducting back to roof vent
    • applied 2nd coat of plaster to patchwork in Signe's room

    Nice. I need to do a few things around our house... apply grease to the garage door track, add caulking in a couple of places, etc. Where is time?

    Heh, kinda got busy for a while there. I have finished pulling the main ceiling down in the basement, and now have can lights in the TV and bar/office areas. Have started working on the garage, have put up a few sheets of plywood (painted white) for ceiling, and a few walls as well. Almost have enough space cleared out to get the Volvo in and start working. Outside, we have 6 6'x3' garden boxes, the rubber-mulch crap from the front flower beds is all gone, I have pulled up 4 rhododendron's (1 to go), cut down the apple tree, and emptied the watering-trough/pond of dirt, some friends are going to come take it away this weekend.
