Nice job on the bathroom too. I dig all the patterns you guys have. My grey contrast wall sounds pretty conservative right about now. :lol:


The peep hole is what sold me. the thing had signs plastered all over it and it was being sold as a prop because it was so torn up. The peep hole looks like something out of 12-monkeys or Brazil or something. A little moving glass eye with a view finder inside. Freaking creepy to watch it move outside.

Totally worth the $100 I invested in it. I laquered the copper to preserve the petina too. There are steel rods in it for added heavy metal factor.

Finished doing my room up a while ago and I think it's pretty swish but I think I'd feel a bit weird about showing it to yall.

I'm making plans to turning the shed in my back yard into a small shop, much jacking and soffiting and hole filling and stuff must be done...

Thanks bud. When you move, you get another chance! haha. Glad to hear you chime in though; thanks for inspiring the thread. Did you ever get those tiles fixed? I might go find some of the old internet listings for my house from some extreme before shots.

I have em re-placed but I need to find the right grout color
what a pain!

I also installed a chimney and woodstove I guess I could take pictures of that

the rest of the stuff is boring, insulation, drywall, flooring, nothing cool

really hoping the new house just has fun projects and no blown in insulation over falling in ceilings

I just had a grout mishap myself. The stupid sealer I guess didn't take on this other encaustic concrete (i don't know if it was a bad batch because it is the same stuff) and we couldn't get the haze off. We went and had to get a buffer to take up the freaking haze. It was awful. I will say this: do not use black grout. That stuff is near impossible to clean. I made that mistake in this other room and paid the price (and I don't even like how it looks anymore).

Drywall is my least favorite thing in the world. I almost gave up on it and started to make slaked lime. Everyone talked me out of it (why does everyone hate lath an plaster?). I am terrible at it. But I am a plumber and that is my excuse...

Our ceiling fell in one room, but I replastered that. The other one has acoustic tiles and some of those fell out. We don't get insulation falling, just bits of asphalt/tar from the roof that some one replaced a while ago. Hell, our house didn't have insulation until I added it to a few rooms (mostly for sound reasons).

Be interested to see the woodstove. We don't see stuff like that out here too often.

woodstove is pretty simple build a platform and tiled it (now pretty beat from 5 years of firewood)
ran a chimney through the roof
It's in an addition and when they did the addition they left the old roof where the parts connect, so I worked at a slant for about 3 days inside the attic.

works well, heats most of the house if it isn't brutally cold.

I hate lath and plaster but it's more from a demo perspective, super messy and dusty,
plus it's crazy flammable

Days in the attic...I'm going to be there soon. I gained some weight (10lbs) and I honestly don't know if I can fit up there now. haha. I'm not much bigger than I was, but it was a tight fit last time. Flat roofs suck sometimes.

That is crazy that they left the old roof inside. I would have probably had to have cut through the wall and stuff to expose it all. They walled off whole portions of my crawl space when they did additions and I had to cut holes in the floor to get to them. I don't know who can fit through a 2'x2' access but it ain't me.

I'll get some more pictures in a bit.

I should velcro all my pedals to a wall to cover up paneling. My wife would love that but at least I could win once in Setup of the Day.

Buying a house was one of the worst experiences of my life. It fell through a ton for us (LA is a hard market) but once you get one, it is freaking amazing. There is always something to do and watching property value rise is kinda fun.

I fucking hate IKEA. Not because it looks bad but because you have to put it all together. I went into one, had a panic attack, and swore it off forever. Fuck that shit. I like pre-assembled overpriced shit. lol

I wish I had something to contribute. I'm planning on finishing my basement soonish. That will be awesome!
