    What projects are you doing around the house.

    So after almost three years of being in our house Iím finally getting around to building out our storage space.

    When we built or house the area underneath the porch we had a full basement put in for storage.





    So the other day I finally got around to applying drylok.



    Still need another coat and then want to put something on the floor.

    Then off to building shelves. And Iíll get my basement back.

    My first house was built in 1914 and had a coal cellar under the front porch. It was great for storage - especially beer! Summer or Winter, the beer was about the same temp!

    Looks great J3! I need to do something similar in our basement. I'm just going to wall off part of the finished area so the "rec room" (which we have never used as a rec room) will be about 6' smaller.



    My projects.....

    We need to have someone put in a bathroom in the basement. It was roughed in (kind of) when we bought the place, but we've never finished it. We only have one full bath in the house and it's in the master bedroom. Kind of makes it tough when we have company.

    I need to finish my back deck. Got it mostly done in late fall and then it started raining... and raining... and raining. Now it's covered with snow.

    Thinking about hiring someone with a forestry mulcher to clean up our woods that have been hit so bad with the Emerald Ash Borer.

    And then there's all the "regular stuff" that tends to keep me busy!

    Got the new Kuuma Vapor Fire wood furnace in this fall. Need to run new duct work to get ready for central AC this spring! Weíll be working on this for a while. My wife is pretty excited about the walls / ceilings being opened up.

    Junk removal is my winter project wish list. I've been creating a pile in the back of the basement by the bilco door entrance. I need the ground to firm up by drying out or freezing so I can back my truck up to it for easy loading.



    That room looks like it needs an autopsy table or two!!

    Don’t do it!! I installed what I think is the same or similar product in our old house. The garage only kept my wife’s cars and the motorcycles. No shop work whatsoever. It peeled and wore terribly.

    I’d love epoxy floors in my new garage and shop but would hire out a professional. I believe they grind or etch the flooring for better adhesion. The professional applications are usually multiple coats with a thicker end product.

    Thanks.

    You read the reviews on this stuff and itís so hard to tell. I know that the floor would have to be etched at a minimum. And preferably ground.

    They did the hangar floor at work a few years ago with some Sherman Williams epoxy paint. Iíll look into that. As well.

    "Up-Flush" Toliet

    I'm adding a macerating "up-flush" toilet in the basement storage room next to my workshop and garage. It will save countless trips to the main living area (up 18 stairs and across carpeted areas, often with dusty clothes & dirty shoes). The new GFCI circuit is ready and I have the copper & PVC pipe on hand. It's time to order the toilet and a small sink. Total cost is about $1,000 -- not bad for an extra bathroom...

    While the water is off, I'm going to also add shutoff valves on the copper lines that run through the uninsulated garage attic (supplying a utility sink and outdoor faucet). The weather seldom gets cold enough here to freeze pipes so Floridians don't generally worry about such things. Last year's dip to 19 degrees convinced me to add this project to my list. Trying to heat the entire area during extreme cold spells would be difficult and probably dangerous. (Heat tape isn't affordable due to the amount required.)
