  • I remodel entire houses for a living...
    none of it is beyond anyones ability...
    it is all about knowing how to do it.

    Here is a kitchen i designed and built last month.

    I tore out a pantry...
    expanded the entire kitchen into a wrap around...
    doubled the size of the kitchen...

    Tiled the floor...
    built the island..
    installed new solid wood cabinets
    granite tile on the counter tops and backsplash..
    Note the stainless steel decoritive tiles above the sink...
    (The granite tile only cost 240 bucks)
    new sink, faucet, disposal...
    re-installed the dishwasher... stove.. new microwave.
    New light fixtures.. can lights..

    It just takes the know how.

        Nice work, though I don't like the appliances. Black microwave, and everything else looks chromed?

        Also that fridge is ugly.

        Me and my wife are thinking of buying a foreclosure for our next house, and just slowly remodel it.

        Or maybe something like this.

        They built the outside of the house and apparently never finished the inside.

          • Lookin' good PD.

            I'm looking into an addition on my house right now. Gonna have someone do the foundation & framing/siding/roofing and handle most of the rest myself. I'll have someone who knows electricity better than me do the actual connecting, but plan on running the wires myself.

            If this baby gets off the ground, I'll be sure to post pics here for everyone to see.

            • I bought a broken surveillance system on ebay, expecting to fix it...

              came and it works fine.. nothin wrong with it...

              but the fan is super loud and crappy, so I cut the wires and spliced in a better fan from an old computer... Quiet as a mouse... but i didn't like that... so I added another fan to it and now it has a descent sound and super cool.

              Nice

              • Well I got this project done everything went pretty well sad thing is I guess the couple of pics I took before I repainted it didn't take... battery eating camera

                Their really wasn't nothing sinister going on behind the wall like a leak from the tub drain etc...Actually and I don't know why I let this surprise me but what I found was decent condition lath boards covered in tar paper like tyvek .

                What I did find out and was the hardest part was the window pictured at one time was a full size window and the builder did a horrible patch job underneath and also about 3ft from the left was at one time a doorway and again had been patched with particle board :/ all fixed... I learned a lot about the house doing this project and will post some pics as soon as I can It looks incredibly much cleaner now ...

                good thing is I'm working now and my next project is saving for school clothes ... I got to pony up some cash in a hurry ...

                  Good to hear there wasn't anything too bad going on. You'd be surprised at all the "discoveries" I've made opening the walls of houses lol.

                  Awesome man! Congratulations.

                  Looks good, can't wait to see the pics

                    Got a semi-serious foundation issue to tackle once we get a good few days of nice weather... that coincides with wanting to dig out 5 or 6 feet by hand.

                    Hey LD how'd that next project turn out? That one looks great.

                    • We late last July I was able to purchase my house. I'm 23 but still living at home currently (well I guess its my home now). The guy we had rented for the last 10+ years decided he wanted to sell the house. Well my mom had been in a car accident 6 months before that, so there was still a bunch of unsettled legal stuff from the idiot who hit her head on but thats another story. Well long story short, I got a loan without a co-signed and the house is mine. Only problem is he hadn't done much upgrading to the house since we have been here, and we did little because it wasn't our house. So since I've bought the place, my dad and I have been remodling after we save up the money. Last winter we remodled the living room. Painted the ceiling and walls, and replaced the old worn out carpet with new linoleum. We put a new pool in last year and this year we have been using my tax return on a new deck to go around it. The deck is as long as the garage! Speaking of the garage. It was an unfished garage, we have slowly been insulating it and got about half of that done. If I had the know how I would post pictures but I'm totally cluelss on that front.
