Re: Inside window trim/frame

Thanks for the input. We used one sheet of 1/2 in plywood, we fit it last night. Now we are going to go over with a 1/8 inch plywood (almost looks like underlayment). The finish is sanded and smooth, we used a 1 x 8 for the sill. The fit looks nice, I primed the boards last night and will paint them...

Inside window trim/frame

Not sure what you call the inside trim or frame of a window. we are at the stage where we are putting new trim on our windows (interior). The boards that were on the windows were like 2 or 3 1/8 inch panels built up and cut to fit the 1 x 6 window frame. What is a good replacement option for these b...

Re: Moving Refridgerator

Wow that looks like a lot of work. We are thinking we have to replace three full boards and also may have to pull two walls and rebuild them to make everything secure and stable again.

Re: Painting kitchen cabinets?

Not sure if you purchased the paint to redo your cabinets but I used rustoleum cabinet transformations in expresso for my bathroom vanity and it was easy and looks really nice.

Re: Marriage Wall Question

Actually we live in ND, average snow fall per year is 8-10 ft, we do not get a lot of snow build up. But this is really crazy right, funny thing is we have a 20 ft opening right on the other side of the little kick wall. We are going to reinforce this wall by making our own headers and placing some ...
