Two weeks after the reflooring was completed and we have slowly moved the furniture and everything back in from the lanai, I took a look at how things blend. I’m a functional perspective person and matching/blending comes a distant second to me. So Lou picked out the flooring. I think it looks good.
So,… Continue Reading
Arthur and Charlie came today to finish up the reflooring. Sam came this past Wednesday and finished laying the vinyl planks, and today Arthur and Charlie took measurements, went to Home depot (or Lowe’s) and got the baseboards, the cut, painted and installed them. All done! Now we just have to bring … Continue Reading
Redoing the home flooring continued today as Arthur does the job on weekends. He and his guys (Sam and Charlie) did floor sanding/smoothing and sealing (minor cracks and the joints in the concrete slab floor), and then started laying the flooring.
I’d say they’re did 75% of it today, just needing… Continue Reading
Here we go with the next major home improvement project! Lou has wanted the first floor of the house redone in hardwood flooring. Hardwood is more expensive though and had other drawbacks we didn’t want to deal with (moisture damage issues, etc.), so we opted for vinyl instead.
We had Arthur Galang come… Continue Reading
We had Arthur Galang come over today to finally install the attic fan on the lanai roof. This, to keep the new storage crawl space in the lanai ceiling cooler so storage items will weather the heat better. Beyond storage items, I put the Vivint system WiFi range extender in that space so the Vivint camera in the … Continue Reading
Today was home fixer upper day. Lou has been wanting to paint the garage doors. I’ve been wanting to clear out the roof gutters where plants have sprouted because of the pigeons roosting on the gutters and dirt/crap settling. I pulled out the 22′ roof ladder to see if it will reach, and it does. So … Continue Reading
We need more storage space (who doesn’t!) and the main garage rafters area is full. Also, pushed mostly because of the recent rat problem and my inability to reach the crawlspace in the rafters inside the small garage and lanai ceilings, we decided to have Arthur Galang (he did all our past home renovations)… Continue Reading
Mom has been wanting to have sidewalks built on both sides of her house, especially since grass on each side doesn’t grow well (not enough sunlight underneath the overhang). Today Tony Galang (Arthur’s brother) and his crew came over to start the prep and initial digging. I had to go over with boltcutters… Continue Reading
We’d been talking about extending the back porch into a small lanai for some time now, because it just wasn’t enough room from the rain when we smoke. As the contemplating went on, I also decided I need a 3rd car garage to get my truck off the street. Initial thoughts were just a concrete carport slab… Continue Reading
Pics of the yard prep I had to do to get ready for Arthur Galang and his gang to build out the porch and a new lanai, and an extended garage.
