Hilarious/Terrifying Things We See In Our House: Part Nine

No turning back now. The renovation has officially entered phase two (although it feels like phase 239) and the back yard has a crater in it. Even though this is a pretty big milestone, there are times when it honestly feels like this is never going to end. Onward.

Bosch JS572EB Barrel-Grip Jig Saw - Review

Bosch_jigsaw_hero.JPG

A long time ago, probably over a year, Bosch sent us one of their JS470EB Jigsaws to check out. We used it, we used it again, and we used it some more after that. It has basically been our primary jigsaw since it showed up. But we never wrote a review of it. We kept meaning to, but whenever we were in front of the computer, we would think about the tool and say, "eh" and move on to the next thing. It was a nice tool, but there was nothing about it that made us think, "yeah, yeah, yeah, now this is a jigsaw!" It was just sort of there. We're generally fans of Bosch jigsaws, so when the company recently released a new series, we thought we'd take one of those for a spin to see if we'd have a different reaction. They sent us the new JS572EB. Oh and did we ever have a different reaction.

So during our renovation, we had to drill 30 3/4" holes through this 8-1/2" beam. It wasn't easy and it wasn't fun. It also would have been impossible if it wasn't for the Bosch DareDevil Spade bits.

Duo-Fast DF150-CS Cap Stapler - Review

DF_cs_hero.JPG

When we put on house wrap, it's with a hammer tacker. The process is not a particularly pleasant one, but since we've been around the business, it's always been done that way, so we ignore the fact that it's a pain, and just suck it up like everyone else does. If that's the way it's done, then that's the way it's done.
