I started a new cause...the other was so long and it needed a topic face lift.
We haven't done anything to the house since we painted the main color on and did the shutters.
I am trying to pay off my truck (very high interest rate) and then we can start doing more work...
except I do have the wood to work on the trim outside the house but ever since the business slowed down, It has been extremely hot
and I been working in the garden when it is cool enough...morn and evening.

thank you David ;)

I don't have much to show...we get side tracked with other things in life and can't seem to complete much.

started building walls around the stair way and hubby should start on the walls for sons bedroom upstairs this evening.
Just know that when the walls are complete, sons room will be the only room upstairs that receives heat from the wood burner downstairs.

At the top of the stairs will be a 3ft landing area with sons bedroom door straight ahead and a side door to the left of the landing area that opens into the rest of the upstairs so we can close that door off during the winter and keep sons door open to let the heat rise.

side ways view of wall frame around stair way on the upper floor.

Grandpa...I stopped checking on him everyday and his attitude is better. Maybe he was sick of seeing me everyday. Now he acts like he never sees me anymore. Dang if you do and dang if you don't. His health is the same. No better, no worse.

Been working on installing insulation upstairs in chads bedroom area. We need to put up the dividing wall panels and it will be cozy for winter.

Insulation cost a lot of money. Just to do that one bedroom area costed $330...and the rest of the upstairs will cost about $1000. One day at a time.

I can't make up my mind what I want to cover the walls and ceilings with.
Wood siding is very heavy and so is the masonite siding and I don't like sheetrock and paneling is thin.
I seriously thought about putting up 1/4 inch plywood

Just ran into this, what a great job you are doing! We are redoing our turn of the century farm house and I hate Sheetrock too. Fortunately for us there were nice original boards under it. But where there was water damage, we had to tear them out. We went with bead board sheets. Just a thought, in our house they are gorgeous and were affordable. We painted them, but they would have looked good stained. In the bathroom where the rot was the worst, we wainscoated with beadboard and used old tin for the top. None of it was as heavy as other options we looked at.

Can't wait to read more!

Sorry I was gone so long,,,it took me a while to renew my subscription and then I didn't post all the new stuff...which aint much but...putting on the finishing touches is expensive and more time consuming than building the actual structure.

sons room upstairs is all closed off for the winter...with black board insulation on the divider walls. We bought insulation for our bedroom and my office and I will start putting that in this week.

I been doing a lot... you really can't tell it until I start laying out the pictures.

7 wks ago I got tired of waiting for hubby to move that deck out back (8x8) around front to fill in the gap on my deck. It goes in the corner of the deck to make the deck wrap around the house. The deck was covered with briars and weeds and on the other side of the burn mobile home heep and I had to figure out how to get it up and over that heep...by myself. It must of been pms...only pms will make a woman want to Prove she can do it herself . but gee ,,,I had been waiting 6 months already. It took some doings. But I finally managed to back my truck out there and it took forever to get it over that heep.

the deck had to go here...we had dog fencing temporarily attached to the deck at the house to keep the dog in until we finish construction. Had to take the fence down and move the deck over that concrete block planter bed.

this is getting the deck out of the weeds and over the burn heep ==1st pic, you cant see it.
2nd pic---can barely see it.
3rd- I tour a leg off pulling it out with a chain.
4th. at that point I had to put the chain on a long pvc pipe and push the pipe to the other side so I could wrap the chain around the deck. ( chain hooked to pvc was the only way I could get chain under to the other side cause it was sitting almost flat on the ground.

finally over the heep, I had to pull it behind the garage and between the garage and faucet to the barn without running over the faucet...barely did it.
and brought a shrub with me, roots and all. lol.
my thoughts were...hubby doesn't have any choice but to put it where it goes if it's sitting in the middle of the driveway.
(the secret is= he kept telling me it couldn't be done...i said...yes it can... then I had to prove it but i did it when he wasn't home just incase i couldn't ) LOL

Its not a new deck, but its my deck and I wanted it where i wanted it.
this is where it had to go...after I cleaned the area, removed the fence, hauled up some blocks to rest it on as it went over the block bed.

then I got a wild hair to make the wall at the stair case in the hall way into a pantry wall. The wall is about 16ft long. It was a wall that would not have insulation and I needed cabinet space for groceries...jar and can food.
So ...we put 2x4 shelving between the wall studs...I calculated what I would need for doors and facing and bought the Oak plywood. and henges... etc... cut, sanded, stained, and polyurethane the doors,

1. the shelving...with black board insulation on the stair case side of the wall.
2.= same as 1.
3= oak facing...stained...golden oak.
4.= I couldn't wait to get the doors on to put my grocers in there.

on the far end is the heighest point under the stairs and I made a door tall enough to walk in under the stairs to store bulk items= remember that is also where the microwave oven was also inserted in the wall (built in microwave box with electrical outlet in wall under stairs on the kitchen side of the stairs.)

1=putting the doors on.
2= the high end of stairs for tall door
3= staining then poly

not your ordinary hall way. the other wall in the hall way will be done the same this spring.

That deck story is so hilarious! You're awesome, Cricket! And I love your use of the wall space for shelving. I could do some of that in our garage to hold some small stuff. I love using space that you normally wouldn't think of using. I love the idea of vertical gardening for that reason. That's something I'll think of doing in the future.
Thanks for taking the time for this great update. Hope and pray hubby's back gets better soon.

I love the pantry shelf space also. No wasted space there but somehow I don't believe you will finish the other side of the hall in the spring. It will worry you every time you look at it and you will find it done before spring, I would bet.

What is the blackboard material you mentioned? And what did you decide to use in your sons' room? Were you worried about the added weight of wood in the loft?

The cast iron waffle iron is unique and a great addition to your collection. Any idea what those tongs might have been used for?

As always, I've enjoyed reading through your posts. Kristi

I have no idea what those tongs were designed for. They pick a steak up nicely .

The black board insulation is what some use on the outside of the house before putting up the exterior siding. It's like a firm compact sheet of fiberglass insulation that is 3/4 inch thick and has a felt type sheeting on both sides. 4ft x 8ft. It holds out cold air and holds in warm air very well surprisingly. .and it cost $8 a sheet at home depot and $5 a sheet if the salvage company has it in stock. We got lucky and got it for $5 a sheet when we did the outside of the house. The salvage store hasn't had anymore in stock since this past summer.

We have not decided what to use on Chad's bedroom walls and ceiling upstairs. I like to visit the salvage stores and catch good stuff at salvage prices. I haven't come across any good ideas yet . It does need to be light weight and I would like to keep a budget at $10 for 4x8 sheets and I prefer wood with nice wood grain. 1/4 inch plywood is expensive but cheaper than some of the wood fancy paneling I have seen.

Currently...still working on that gutter board and sofit on the back of the house and when that is finished, I can add on a small lean to greenhouse for sowing my seeds and growing my seedlings this winter.

Wow!! You have made amazing progress. Love the storage and the iron pieces. Good job on the deck. What plans do you have for the pigs? You might conside luan for the upstairs. When stained and sealed it looks like birch plywood but it's lightweight and inexpensive. Glad to know your DH is better.

I personally don't like Luan. The wood, even just the veneer, is too porous... by that I mean the fibers are not closely spaced. Plus my experience is that it darkens with a sealer. The doors in this trailer are hollow with luan door skins.

On the other hand, I love birch plywood, and most of my shelving is made from it. Years ago, Baltic Birch 3/4" plywood was 7 layers (bonded together) but today everything is cheaply made, and I seldom find it with more than 5 layers. The thinner plywood is okay if it gets fastened to the walls before it warps, and the fibers are tight enough to give a good finish.

I prefer the thin plywood...but the prices have doubled in the past 6 years. I used the thin plywood on the sunroom ceiling that we had built on the other home and it was pretty. I'll wait and see what the lumber salvage can come up with. Sometimes they have it for $10 a sheet but they just don't have it right now. And sometimes they have good sheets of wood paneling for $10.
I really really don't want to use sheetrock. I hate sheetrock. But if I am backed into the corner financially, I might have to. ($7 a sheet)

BACK to my Water Well topic that I talked about a few months ago=
We called one man to look at the well and he never would show up. He didn't talk all that great anyway.
All he was suppose to do was come out and look at the well and tell us what we needed to do to make it work cause we had no idea what we were suppose to look for.
I been cruising the net learning about drilled wells and pumps.

All I have figured out is that all we have is just a Well Casing. There are no pipes or anything blocking the casing. There was a cap on the casing and it has not been exposed to rain and mud. ...cept my husband did drop a rock down the pipe ...oh great!!!!
I don't know a whole lot about these wells yet, but I thought there was suppose to be a fixed permanent screen near the bottom that would prevent mud or rocks from entering into the pump area. If my learnings are correct, then hubby did a bad thing. Right?

Built a greenhouse room off the back door. Wood burning heater just inside the back door in the livingroom. Just a place to start some early seeds and store a few plants. It's 6x12. We put an electric heater in there too for back up when we don't wake up to load the heater. It has used greenhouse poly on it. I wanted to put some polycarbonated sheets on it next year but that is iffy. Might just put the sheets on the roof and put screen around the walls and remove and replace the poly every winter and spring.

Stained each strip of lattice with a paint brush. Used Eco Wood Treatment and added some green tint until I got the tint that I liked that would best go with the house colors. Stained the old decking too.

I never posted pictures of the cabinets that we put up either.
Used, old , smoke damaged cabinets.
Cleaned and refaced with oakplywood.
I like to take someone elses trash and turn it into my treasure. (reuse)
I haven't finished that project cause I have been undecided on what to use for cabinet doors.
I haven't stained it yet either. I might do that this winter while I am confined to the indoors.

I seriously thought about taking some wood pallets and un-assemble them to make some board and batten doors for the cabinets. thoughts...?

The cheapest & easiest thing to do is order cabinet doors from a cabinet door company. Google cabinet doors. All you have to do is send your measurements. You can get them unfinished, then stain or paint the cabinets & doors to match.
I looked at a couple sites & it looks like under $30 per door for paint-able style.

That living room wall is awesome. You have done some great work inside and out. Lots of work on the lattice no doubt but it looks terrific. You can really be proud of yourself. I like the idea of the dioramas from pallets. It will fit with the rest of your house.
Thanks so much for posting the pics.

Yes Mam. Not much .
sold the coffee table in the livingroom that the tv was sitting on and bought wood to build an entertainment center. (basic)
Then stained and put one coat of polyurethane on the entertainment center and the two walls in the livingroom.
That's all I have done. Been working in the greenhouse and yard. Will finish the livingroom late spring.

It's one of many advertizing posts these nonpaying people are tossing in here all the time since non subscribers have been able to access this site.
Tell Melody or Terry & they will remove it.

I thought nonsubscribers didn't have access to forums. If DG changed that, that's lousy.
And, CricketsGarden, your home is looking incredible! I love the fact that you all are taking your time & doing things how YOU want them! We are just about to do a bit of kitchen remodel, including new cabinet doors. Thanks CountryGardens for your comment! That's a good place to start.
Y'all have a great summer!
