I’ve been working on painting my daughters enormous staircase bunk bed for over a week. Fucking rained in the middle. Ruined my primer job. Re-sanded and patch primed everything only to turn around and meet yet another snag. And this isn’t even house shit exactly lol. God dammit. Explains why I’ve been boozing so much lately holy hell.

Okey dokey y’all! So here is some step by step hardwood flooring installation shit. Progress was making me kinda mad, Home Depot’s rental tools are shit and even with all of my higher math functions firing off on all cylinders, @Schnitzel it’s big cry baby time. So without further ado; here’s where it all went wrong.

 

The mission was to start the flooring on the far wall of the master bedroom and work it out the door, do the hallway and have the flooring perfectly terminate into the existing stair nosing.

Step one was to use a 6 ft level as a straight edge and continue the line from the stair nose farther. Like this:

Off of this line I pull a measurement to the back wall of the master bedrooms behind me. There is no picture for this. But anyway, I ended up with 2 points against the back wall that let me create a starting line to run the first row of flooring from. According to my calculations, By the time I worked the flooring all the way out, everything should have lined up perfectly. Instead I have a gap a pencil could fall into. 
 

Some one did some really shitty repairs in the hallway floor from downstairs at some point. The really fucked up the level of the floor. Check this shit out!

this one plank sits about a 1/4 higher than it’s continuation beeeecause…

ta-daaaaah!! The new floor joist they sistered in is some how a 1/4 inch higher than the old one! It took some serious muscle to fuck an entire floor out of wack like this. Here was my best solution.

 

Death by a thousand cuts and then smash those little bits out of the way with a hammer.

Then I patched the small opening back up. I’m all out of pictures. More to come tomorrow!

Sounds like a enormous pain in the dick. Also I cannot believe how fucked up the supply chains are STILL, across the board. Also, surprised to read you rent any tools I woulda thought you had a whole department store to yourself with the amount of different work you do. 
 

Here’s a few things from my house land. 
Will post more as I go on but so far it’s been surprisingly easy ancient one layer wall paper removal, skim coating, and painting on first level.
We had a upstairs apartment that we are renovating to convert the house into a single family. That’s where the bill of work is. So far kitchen demo and serious pain in the dick kitchen tile layer removal and Composite hardwood installs. I’m not near as handy as some of y’all so my buddy helped with a lot of technical stuff. I can be shown a time or 2 and left alone but I’m terrible with tape and what not.

bought very expensive dustless drywall sander setup because I needed it for work anyways. Tax write off. Huge game changer if you do a lot of muddin especially in your own shit.

Floors came out nice and we started in on this ship lap wall which will eventually be our master bd with a built in head board on said wall. We are also keeping the kitchen lines active by installing a little gas fireplace and a bedside bubbler for lazy ass on hand water lol. Apparently a thing in some countries. I think it’s pretty baller and I’m looking forward to that part. A6CB621E-8EC2-404A-AA8B-88D41DF620D8.thumb.jpeg.c218557854b341e498422691a1f0a9a5.jpegFDF78898-E412-49C3-B727-FCE86ECD8BD4.thumb.jpeg.0bcf86f4ce3c64cb1b42419fda4ab95e.jpeg01012B6C-E7B9-4F1C-9E9C-B4CA7AC2E89D.thumb.jpeg.a78a210613172c6055c68472d608a794.jpeg9D4EA85A-F60B-40CF-B4E5-2849F08DC215.thumb.jpeg.be09e5f035c42f51ec1e14f7c0ba9c91.jpeg0463C2CE-2C03-4E21-A64E-5E7A817F1B9E.thumb.jpeg.a5b358d5924964bacef57897004015fa.jpeg

oooweee bro. I’ve been back and forth on buying one of these dustless sanders for years now. Is it good enough to where you don’t have to set up dust containment plastic in doorways and what not?

I’ve only used it twice both times in my own house. Which is already slightly still dusty from working and from what I can see no dust containment needed. Crank that fucker up and go. Shit is awesome. No dust mask. Straight chillin. Not as strong as the festool one judging by the videos but now I’m not sure they are even real. (The ones where dudes just let’em rip across the ceilings all by themselves) the mirka does have suction enough to stick to the walls but not just hang there.

@mr.yuck what is your opinion on carpet? I’ve been wanting to sand and refinish my dining and living room, but I just don’t have enough free time to do it myself. And the wait time and price for someone to do it for me isn’t desirable. Been thinking of just laying carpet in the living room. Dining room Is passable how is, so if obviously leave that uncovered.

The carpet doesn't always have to match the drapes.  Perm on top, braids on bottom.
