Thanks!

Pretty much done with all the joists/walls. Ran a string on the second story floor before I did the new joists and in the center of the rooms up there there was over 1" between the string and the carpet in places. Now its almost perfectly level.





More junk to clean up (this doesn't include the mess I made upstairs in the last post).

Well life has been really busy! But with this nice weather we've been having its been nice.

Upstairs now. I was going to break the room in half again and put a bath/closet in one half in a bedroom in the other. But I am thinking I may just leave it one big room. I will put a wall closet on the wall next to the shelves where the door is. It will run the length of that wall. Behind the shelving unit is the stairway down also.




All new wiring and boxes ran in the living room and new bedroom on the main floor. Also put up two canister lights in the ceiling that will be controlled by a light switch in the dinning room and bedroom. By code your supposed to have a light in the room whether it be one that's plugged into the wall that works with a switch or a light. And I figured this way there can be a TV on that wall in the middle of the lights.





More junk.




There were two huge trees in front of the house and a huge pine tree on the corner. Well people pulling up from the side street to the main road infront of my house couldn't see left down the road to see if traffic was coming (towards my house) without pulling out into the main road. There's been a few accidents and with a lot of close calls. And my family and I have had a few close calls too so we decided to was best just to take them down. It really open up the front of the house too.




Ill be busy for a while.

Well not much of an update on my house. Been tearing out all the old nails, pieces on the floor/ceiling and old trim work upstairs in the last few pics I posted.

But I have been working at my parents as they are getting new granite counter tops put in.

A pic I took of their house this fall that I liked and it shows my flagpole.


Their kitchen. The microwave that is hanging under the cabinet is brand new. There use to be an exhaust fan for the oven there. The oven will still be going back underneath it. In one of the pics you can see how the old microwave just sat on the counter top next to the refrigerator. They bought a new refrigerator and stove also that's in the garage.


There is a decorative piece that goes under the bar so its all finished under their.


There use to be a desk where the two tall pantry cabinets are when they moved in but it was a weird place for it so we took them out. With the new granite they didn't want the pantry door opening into it so I moved the pantries over and will be puttign a finished wood piece in between the cabinets.


Had to build up the corner as all they had was little pieces of wood under the old counter top but I wanted it strong for the granite.


Also had to do the same behind the lazy susan.


I found a bunch of writing in the corner from when they built the house which was pretty neat. Has all the names of who built the house, did the plumbing, cabinets, etc.



Getting there.


All ready for the granite.




Will have updated pics with the new granite later today hopefully as well as updated pics of my house later this week.

What Magnum are you guys running? My wife's family runs mostly CASE IH, like a Magnum 275 and they just bought a Patriot sprayer. By the way NICE work on the house. I as well am redoing an old farm house, one room at a time and when the money is there.
