If you have upgraded to LED lights in your home or are thinking about upgrading, here’s something to look for during installation. Continue reading LED retrofitting considerations
In August 2014 I replaced the builder grade “boob light” for something I thought had more lighting capability. The track lighting was a special order from the local store. Continue reading Upgrading office lighting to LED
While at the local post office the other day, the building was having new LED lighting installed. It piqued my curiosity because the retrofit looked so simple. Continue reading Upgrading pot lights to LED lighting
This is a completely new decking system for me to install. So follow along in a few short videos of the different sections of railing, tips on cutting vinyl and other things learned along the way.
This morning we have the task of building a deck for one of our mom’s. There’s things to do before we can go over. A neighbour is coming over for a hair cut so while Gina is busy with that, I had to fill in my time.
Backing up and not paying attention has its consequences, as my dear wife’s mom discovered not once… but twice! The last time was just a run in with the door frame, cracking the trim in half. This time was more serious. The only damage to Kathryn was her pride… and a little bit to her truck.
When I built this garage 7-8 years ago I reused windows from the in-laws large dining room window. I had to make up my own window casings and every other year I’d have to scrape and paint the casings. But, over time the water got in and leaks led to rot and mold. Time to replace them with some solid vinyl windows.
So this is what happens when a new home owner wants under deck lighting and they listen to the home builder.
As the final stage of building our garage sliding screen door its time to build the two screen frames and install the screen material. This didn’t cost me anything… well, ok, for you purist out there, it did at some point in the past. I had bought material to make the screens for our sunrooom and the scraps left over I did not throw out. So, it didn’t cost me anything EXTRA.
The attached garage is a place we use to store firewood during the winter. Usually we can keep about a cord at a time. For some time now I’ve wanted to have a screen door at the entrance to allow a cross breeze with the windows on the opposite side of the garage. It would help keep the humidity down, which is something I’ve noticed a lot this year.
So I present to you the nothing fancy sliding screen door.
