- Replaced the pantry doors in the kitchen. I've never done any staining before so it was a fun little project. I now want to replace all the doors on the upper two levels of the house!
Did you hand rub the stains?
I'm a pro with that.
This Summer I patched my gf's foundation exterior, we're paintin gthe porch wood and then the concrete (still working at that, as we're running into wasps), then painting the front/back of the garage, plus I'll put a new back attic door on the garage then to access the rafters.
I laid 2'x2' rebar reinforced concrete slabs then as a patio/walk on her back yard to/around the pool. I'm then digging out the hill beside the garage where the stones end and putting in a railroad tie staircase to the back of the garage.
I'd like to then pour a concrete slab, and I'm making a mold to make my own stone blocks and build a stone block fire place/chimney/pit thing to grill on, and stuff. Just a little fire pit/grill thing... I've envisioned it and will do it.
She wants a waterfall built to a retaining wall on the back hillside too, but that's going to wait for another year I think. She also wants her pool deck expanded to the house... I'm reluctant to work on that some. I've not built a deck, and nd I'd largely have to do this myself as well. So i'm just reluctant to do it.
All the while I'm still shelving my office/collection room here at my house... Also going to be painting under the overhang of the back roof, and I have some mortar repair work to do at my house as well, plus tearing down the old shed out back that was the original washhouse to my home... I'm sure it's a snake pit too underneath, so that ought to be fun. All the while we've been dealing with stray cats here too, all year.
Oh, and you'll dig this Matt... When I repaired the foundation with the mortar at my gf's place, I scribed in the kid's names and the year, and beside the lettering I carved a Killroy into the mortar.
I laughed my ass off to myself. Diane got home from vacation, saw it, and just shook her head at me. I couldn't resisit to make sure Killroy was there.
