Emsberry Corner #2: our journey continues

07-12-2010 05:18 PM by Brian & Carey | 2 comments »

We built a landing (attic) not sure what to call it in the garage and that’s where the children slept. Then we divided the garage into a bedroom, lounge, kitchen and bathroom with panels. We put all the wardrobes into a square in one corner to create a dressing room. Our water supply was pumped up to us from the farmer down the road a kilometre away into tanks perched precariously on some old scaffolding. The cut off valve was about 65 metres down the field. The farmer would ...

Emsberry Corner #1: Our journey

07-10-2010 04:17 PM by Brian & Carey | 1 comment »

Our home today and the story of how we got there. We bought a piece of land in September 1998 and it was just covered in port jackson (alien trees) and we had to start clearing before we could even get onto the property. Next we had to create a driveway for our car to get to where we wanted to build. All of this was done by myself, my hubby Brian and our three daughters and every now and then a few friends and family.We then built a 3 car garage and moved into that as a makeshift ho...

Asphalt Driveway Repair

04-10-2010 06:18 AM by John W. | 0 comments »

Asphalt driveways must be maintained. Minor damage quickly becomes major and nothing says neglect like a cracked and broken driveway with weeds creeping up through the cracks. For asphalt driveway repair all cracks and potholes must be filled in before sealing. To fill cracks use a rubberized asphalt-emulsion crack filler, applied with a caulking gun or polyurethane crack repair in a cartridge. Fill in potholes using a cold asphalt mix or polyurethane pothole repair material. Once the cracks ...

Planning on installing a new deck or sprucing-up an existing one this season? If so, you’re not alone. Decks are still among the most popular home improvements. So, what’s hot in decks this summer? Here are some of the top deck trends for summer 2010: Railings – Once merely a functional safety element, railings are now doing double duty as design statements.

My first refurb blog

03-01-2010 03:42 AM by Jimi_C | 2 comments »

Been busy working on home improvement stuff, and haven’t had a chance to do any wood working (it’s also still been pretty cold here), so I thought I’d share some of the work I’ve been doing. First up was our bathroom, which needed a new shower fixture. The old one was extremely old, and I couldn’t find replacement parts to fix a valve stem issue, so I decided to upgrade. The first problem I ran into was the fact that the wall was way thicker than I thought, ...

Concrete Repair #3: Concrete Spall Repair

02-01-2010 07:40 AM by John W. | 2 comments »

A concrete spall repair done properly will extend the life of your concrete if fixed early enough. Repairing spalls can be handled in a few ways. Sometimes it is best to break out an entire section and re-pour it with new concrete rather than patching. With this method, be sure to wear goggles to protect your eyes, ear protection, gloves and a dust mask as cutting or breaking up concrete creates a large cloud of dust. Patching works best for lesser damage in otherwise solid concrete. Use e...

The Journey's Beginning - HELP

08-30-2009 01:05 AM by dustynewt | 2 comments »

Hello all. It has been quite a while since I last posted anything here. I am a woodworker at heart, a paper mill worker for money and a home remodeler by necessity. Our home in Florida was built in 1932, and although it is finally paid for, systems are breaking down. It seems whenever we get some money saved for a project we want to do, the house tells us what it needs. We had no sooner laid out $4000 for a new central AC unit (a priority here in July) when a lightning storm knocked out the...
