  • Dates Have Been Set

    More updates on the home improvement front. Today, I took phone calls about both the roof and the electrical upgrade. They’ll be here to start on the roof next week Wednesday and expect it to take two days. The utility company has scheduled the electrical work for the first day of July. And as I […]

  • Holiday Weekend Kickoff

    I gave the electrician the go ahead to take care of my electrical project in the garage. He’s going to put a 100 amp panel out there. I’ve also got him replacing and upgrading the main electrical panel I just replaced in the basement. I didn’t do anything terrible, but the panel I put in […]

  • F@*k!$g Doorbell

    I don’t have a doorbell on my house. I haven’t had a doorbell since I moved in. It looks like they took the doorbell off and covered up the wiring when they did the vinyl siding, and I believe I took out a transformer when I replaced the electrical panel. So there was a doorbell […]

  • News from the Basement

    My back is very sore! That is all. Have a great day. Just kidding. Lots of drywall mudding, sanding, seeing errors, mudding, and sanding. But pictures of that are boring and hard to see any change. Maybe once things are primed. The ceiling grid is up, but it’s not hung from wires yet. I spent […]

  • PTO: Weekend Edition

    Saturday, I did all the usual stuff mowed the lawn, did laundry, and some yard work. I knew that it wasn’t going to be a project day, as we had a graduation party to attend, those things usually fall around mid-afternoon and kind of eat up a day. This one was no exception, 3-6. Only […]

  • On A Lighter Note

    The basement living room is pretty good size, I’d say it’s a bit over 14′ x 20′, but it was also pretty dark. It’s got a low ceiling, even lower duct work, and it was lit by two of these. Something needed to be done, and that something was to replace these fixtures. Which is […]

  • Making Things More Comfortable

    My garage is a pretty miserable place most of the year. In the summer it’s +100°F warmer than the outside temperature and has no breeze, even on the windiest of days. In the winter it’s -30°F colder. Basically, it’s comfortable to work in there about 6-days a year. I have a box fan that I’ve […]
