So here goes, the list to finish unfinished construction-related projects around the house:
|Back in October - there was a backsplash hiding this classy wallpaper|
- Bathroom paint & trim
--finish tacking the trim up (who knew how hard it would be to pound finish nails in after the nail gun was set too low?!)
--finish filling nail holes in trim with wood filler
--touch up white paint on trim over wood filler
- Living room, Hallway, & Nursery trim
--spray paint trim white (nursery) or black (hallway & living room)
--nail in place (my husband is much better with the nail gun than I)
--use wood filler for holes
--touch up paint on trim over wood filler
- Hardwood flooring edges/joins with other flooring types
--decide on edging type (Home Depot where we got our amazing click-lock engineered wood flooring has 2 types of reducers for our type of wood)
--measure, measure again, and cut edging to length (my dad is one of those 'measure twice, cut once' guys, and I always
--install the edging so we don't stub our toes, wear down the edge of the floor, or trip! (Luckily the little one has gotten secure enough in her scooting to not fall over the edge & bonk her head. That was always painful...)
- Finish replacing the 5 sunporch patio doors with new doors/windows
--put plywood house siding back up around windows & doors
--put house siding back up around windows & doors
--put insulation back up around the exterior of the windows & doors
--foam-insulate the interior of the re-set patio door
--finish putting flashing at bottom of windows & doors
- Sunporch... I likely over stepped myself here by planning to re-route some plumbing and electrical (among other things). I won't even list all the steps necessary because its a little embarrassing how much there is to do! Instead I'll put in some pictures so you can see the horror that awaits...
Looking towards the other end of the sunporch, you can see that plumbing is perhaps the least of my worries. That shiny stuff you can see between boards at the back wall is foam insulation, which at least where I grew up isn't to code in an inside space without drywall. Just ignore Remi in her kennel with the cone of shame on, she got in a tangle with a stick and it won, so she had some stitches that we didn't want her chewing on.
See, even the little one thinks its hilarious that I think I am a match for the sunporch... and I'll leave you with this happy, mischievous face. Till next time!
