The New House... #8: Getting Floored... in the Kitchen!

01-07-2009 05:45 PM by ryno101 | 5 comments »

Now that I’m done with the major stuff, and recapping the entirety of the project, I have to say that the chronology of this blog is way off, for good reason. The kitchen cabinet install from my previous blog entry happened on the Wednesday before we moved in (Friday, Nov 14th… “A Day That Will Live in Infamy”). I’ve skipped ahead quite a bit to get to the “juicy bits”, and to avoid countless blogs like this: The New House #9 – Today I scra...

The New House... #6: Kitchen Nightmares - No, not the Gordon Ramsay kind...

11-20-2008 06:33 PM by ryno101 | 4 comments »

Well, it’s official, we’ve moved. This past Friday was the move day, and despite last minute issues, (the contractor who was dealing with the upstairs bathroom decided that he didn’t want to show up to finish the job, the company who we got the vanity from gave us totally inaccurate rough plumbing specs which required a complete re-do of the plumbing, etc. etc. etc… all will be revealed in coming blogs!) we were living in the house. There’s still enough to do t...

The New House... #5: A brief update...

11-10-2008 10:45 PM by ryno101 | 3 comments »

I’ve been lax in posting, but for good reason. I’ve been putting in 14-16 hour days, 7 days a week since I started this project on 10/18… I was able to take last week off from work, allowing me to get into a rhythm of work from 10am to 2am, sleep from 3am to 9am… Of course on the days where I did have to work at my real job, it was office from 8am to 6pm, house from 7pm to 1am. The biggest time chunk that I wish I had back was the hours upon hours of driving all ...

The New House... #4: Ripping out the kitchen

10-31-2008 03:57 PM by ryno101 | 5 comments »

I’m posting as I have a free 20 minutes to compile these, so my timeline is a bit scattered… I’m well into other stuff, but I’m trying to make sure I get the big stuff documented here, so I’m really like a week or so ahead in the project, this was last weekend’s adventure. My two biggest “projects” inside this giant project…. are the painting/wall prep and re-doing the kitchen. The kitchen was by far the nastiest room in the house...

The New House... #7: Kitchen? Check.

12-29-2008 06:50 PM by ryno101 | 4 comments »

Ok, so now that the holidays have cooled down a bit, and I’ve got a bit of time to catch up on this, I figured I’d jump back in and document where we’re at… When we last saw our intrepid home refurber, the kitchen was getting prepped for cabinets and floors… let’s see how it went, shall we? After ripping up the rotten floors, of course the next step was to re-build them and get it all leveled: Once I had rebuilt the floor sections, the room...
