Disappeared Again...


Yeah, we vanished for a little while there. Sorry about that. We once again got sidelined by the renovation. Lately we've been working on the house in the evenings, which leaves us little time for updating the site. We're going to be back at it this week though.

To give an idea of what we're up against, above is a shot of Tool Snob HQ (the part you can actually walk through...the other half is actually much worse)'s pretty brutal. Clean up time has been reduced as well...I think I see Jimmy Hoffa behind the welder.

I agree with Joe. It seems like the last 2% is the toughest! Push on Bro!

Put that same door in our house (looks the same from here anyway). It looks really nice once finished. Therma-tru with a Simpson slab?

Knocking out the punch list is the hardest part for me too. That's when my motivation seems to be lowest.

That's actually a great idea. Market yourself as a 'closer'. You could go around installing basecap, adjusting lockets, paint touchups, that sort of thing. That last 10% always seems impossible for me. But in my current situation, I'm only half way there. The interior work is about 70% done and the addition isn't even started...going to be a long summer...

JW - Electricity indeed! Finally a sub-panel. No more trips to the basement for blown breakers!

hang in there Doug, when spaces get that confined moving things around becomes a game of Tetris. The uninitiated have no idea how draining a huge project can be.

I completely agree with Joe, sometimes I wish they had closers for projects, I get the ball on the goal line and have a hard time pushing it in the endzone.

Good to see you finally got electricity in the shop!

It's that last push toward the end that is the hardest. Keep up the good work, and I can't wait to see some more photos from the project.
