This Old Trap House: Wonk Saggin Edition


Recommended Posts

Update opperation just put it back together: I need more money

 

Been a little bit since I updated. Im rained out of work today so I have some time to get busy. 

 

Rooms are in various stages of finishing mud work. Eventually all rooms will be brought up to a level 5 finish where the entire walls will be whited out. If you only finish the seams, but joints and nail heads as pictured below, when the sun light comes in through a window and shines down your wall you will see a difference in the smooth texture of the mud and then the rough texture of the drywall paper.

I used to do "fine finishes" with an hvlp gun. Anything you can feel with your hand you will be able to see when it's painted. You would definitely be able to feel the texture difference as you described.

That was the biggest problem I had with the old men that used to work for me. They didnt want to wear glasses to work so they would miss sanding shit all the time. I couldnt get them to use their hands either. Apparently they had been doing this since I was in diapers and I  couldnt tell them shit.

One more coat on the seams and then this bad boy is ready for its final skim coat.

PS @MercerI ended up having to call in an electrician. I wasnt even asking you to draw me up the right thing. I also ended up tearing out ceilings downstairs chasing wire trying to figure out where the power was coming from. On the plus side I hooked up all of my own switches and outlets and have a much better understanding of home wiring.

Also I got some bum advice when I first started wiring this hooker. I ran 8 gauge wire to feed this sub panel. That wire is only rated for 40 amps. So for the first time since I started I will be working backwards to replace with 4 gauge wire and get my sub panel up to 60 amps.

 

I hate having to google behind people. Luckily I'll be out of this shit I have little to no knowledge on really soon.
