New Home #1: 10 Year Plan, a Quick Summary

04-03-2008 10:04 PM by ww_kayak | 12 comments »

Not exactly a refurb, but I have one those too…OK, so a few years ago I decided to buy some property and have a house built. Not that I didn’t know it was expensive…but, when I got 3 different quotes for 250k to 300k for a 1200 square foot house (and this ain’t Florida or California mind you), I said forget it! So, because I’m in no real hurry, and prefer to live debt free when possible, I decided to make this a long term project and do almost everything myse...

Well, like some many of the LumberJocks, I’ve moved over here to kill a couple of more hours a day. I’m in the process of building my own house. Been working on it for over two years. Pay as I go. Of course, the furniture making gets in the way, but the LOML has put that on hold for at least 6 months, which should be time to get things finished up. Been living in the upstairs of my shop, so it’s time to get ‘er done, so I can have more shop space. I’ll keep you...

Ramblin' #1: Just got here and who do I see???

04-03-2008 03:01 AM by Thos. Angle | 9 comments »

Well, I signed up as soon as I heard. It looks like the gang is gathering. Now that we have two sites and some of us three, who is going to go to the shop and get some work done? Lumber Jocks is coming at me so fast an furious that I can’t even begin to keep up and now we add another. Maybe I’ll just retire and become a professional blogger. Anyway, Martin, I’m sure this site will be as exciting and usefull as Lumber Jocks. Glad it’s up and running. Let the games begin...

Privacy Fence

04-02-2008 10:15 PM by Brian H | 10 comments »

Thanks to this: We had to install this: Like the deck I posted before, this is all cheap treated wood. My backyard isn’t huge but it’s big enough that the more exotic fencing was out of our price range. The important thing was to keep the dogs in our backyard which it thankfully does. This summer we may put on a stain/pretector on it to make it look nicer. We hope to put our house up for sale within a year or two so that’ll probably help.

Front Deck #1: Front Deck

04-02-2008 10:03 PM by Brian H | 9 comments »

At one time, we had a nice poured front porch. Unfortunately we had to rip it out thanks to poor drainage and nothing to keep water from pouring into our basement. After we got the wall sealed and new drainage in, I had to decide the best way to get a porch back on. I ended up going with a treated wood deck since it was pretty much the only thing we could afford at the time. Concrete wouldn’t have been much more expensive but I was worried about that basement wall. There were lots ...

Finally Finishing my Cabinets!

03-28-2008 03:34 AM by Blake | 10 comments »

Just in time for the launch of HomeRefurbers, I finished hanging my kitchen cabinets at about midnight last night. After a minor disaster with creating the styles and rails on my router table (which I blogged about here), I am back on track and they are all in place. I got so anxious that I hung them before staining them, which I think I will finish this weekend (they need a little sanding too). When I do I’ll be sure to post photos in the “project” section. So stay tuned...

My Home #1: My Goals

03-20-2008 12:51 PM by MsDebbieP | 16 comments »

March, 2008 For the past few months I have been slowly changing the look of my home. My original goal was to create a rustic look for my home filled with antiques from my family and with things that I had made myself. Since that time, I’ve started going on monthly road trips with my sister-in-law hitting local antique stores. I have also grabbed some paint and made some changes here and there. The paint doesn’t quite fit the rustic antique look and so my “style” ...
