I have a new roof going on the house today. After a few weeks of getting quotes, and finding the right roofing guy for the right price its finally going on. We are also getting rid of one skylight towards the back of the house. Reason for dumping the skylight is that I need to built a wall and the skylight would have been right in the middle of where the wall is going. Some before / in progress pictures are below. I’ll have some after shots later today / tomorrow.
These stairs are finally done. First was the endless sanding, then the staining and polyurethane. I put off painting the risers and sides because its a nightmare to prep, plus I had other projects from “The List” to get done. I went through a roll of tape just getting everything ready before painting. Primed with a good primer, then hit it with a semi gloss white from Benjamin moore. (I went with the semi gloss because of durability, I used this on all my moldings and doors)
Anyways, here are some pics. The flash from the camera makes it seem more shiny then it actually is, I think it came out pretty good.
Figured I’d update the old blog with a few house updates. We had a new door put in, then me and my father-in-law tiled our entry way. I also just had a fence put in.
Here is our poor attempt at a pumpkin carving
