    If you have not seen above, I'm an overly certified jimmy rig electrician and will do it for a 12 pack. Not sure that your wife would approve of my work, but what's an electrical fire here and there? Keep ya on your toes.

    I’ll stick with the retired electrician and do it under a homeowners permit, but you’re more than welcome to come over and have some beers.

    geez man. looks like progress made, but the electrical stuff is B/S. building our house was enough just because of the contractors (not all, but most). it's even worse now after the hurricanes. i'm glad I didn't get into the house flipping game haha. awesome that you're wife knows her shit and can make sure it's right, just when you actually have someone. pocket that money and/or utilize it elsewhere.:thumbsup:

    Does paying someone to do it count? Hope so.

    Got the kitchen lit up.

    We only had the over head and recessed. Got LEDs installed under the cabinets and over the sink. Those things in the windows are a bit over powering, at night they look like airport beacons. (Excuse the mess, we're still moving in.

    While in the attic my electrician saw the original roof of the house and ceiling of the kitchen. They lowered the kitchen ceiling about 2 foot but left the beaded board up there. I think I'm going to try and salvage it and us it else where. Electrician grabbed some of the shake cedar shingles from the original roof. I'm going to try and clean it up and see what it looks like.

    The subscription is if you want to integrate it into IFTTT or Google Home or something like that. You can still monitor, open, and close through the app with no fee.

    Been thinking of getting one of these just for convenience. Just haven't committed to it yet.

    I added a new bedroom to our house yesterday. Details are we moved our son to Houston to start medical school in a couple weeks. We have a new bedroom. Now the debate starts with the wife...man cave or guest room. I don't like my chances.

    I got these a while back when they went on sale or something. Very happy with them and they've paid for themselves in the gas and time away from work I've saved having to let people in our house. Very easy to use too

    I'll give a small push and say to get it. I also got an alarm to notify me if it's opened between certain times, as well as have it close after a certain time in case I leave it open on accident.

    Finally got around to mounting my machete on my DR Mower - much handier when bushwacking blackberries along my fence line. Then I bushwhacked along my fence line.

    Probably should add a trans cooler, just to be safe.

    When I add the hitch, I plan on adding the cooler too. But I’m gonna put 37’s on 24’s with an 8” Ready-lift on it first.

    Depends - if I put a Hypertech in it, then I’ll actually know the real MPG.

    I'm once again asking for your advice....

    I have 4 corners like this where my house is lacking any kickout flashing. Naturally, I've found wood rot in at least 2 of those corners where water was going down the siding instead of into the gutters. I've been reading about installing kickout, but I'm not clear how I can do that without removing the hardie plank.

    And no, I didn't add those giant globs of caulk. That was my gutter installer. :rolleyes:

    I think I can slide a piece of flashing under the hardie, but I'm not sure if that will open myself up to more issues. Would love some feedback from the group.

    I'm almost POSITIVE that is supposed to go under the shingle and hardie board.

    @Fotnot From the videos I've seen I think you're correct but they also installed it first, then the siding. I didn't see anyone that was able to just slide it up under existing siding. I think the Hardie plank is laid from the top down so just removing one piece doesn't seem likely. Water is currently trickling back into the fascia so I've got to fix this. May have to get creative with how I do it.

    This is what should have been done.

    So the flashing along the roofing is supposed to be a step flashing. Each piece is laid under a single row of roofing, so the one in the left of this picture is on top of the first row of shingles but under the second one. Sort of like weaving.

    This. That little white angle coming out from under the hardie is essentially doing nothing and water is just flowing right under it and into your wall if there isn't any step flashing behind there.

    Slowly but surely I’ve been getting the basement finally finished. Finally got the walls painted in the main room and started the LVP flooring earlier today. Other pics are buried deep in the thread somewhere :rolleyes:

    Lucky for me, as I was placing my last board this morning I caught the tip of my finger with the mallet. Good times, good times… o_O

    Finally done with my new deck. Old one had to come out, was really old and house wood was rotten were it meet the old deck.
    was a lot of work but well worth it.
