Week 20 - Heat, Curb Appeal, and ACTION VIDEO!

The custom made shutters are up and the garage door is painted. What a boost in curb appeal!
Well, and also new windows, new roof, removal of overhang, new front walk and new siding.



The concrete pour came out just fine for the new front walkway.

Inside, I discovered Gerry No Crack with his head up in the attic.

So I stuck my head up there as well. Having this relatively open space to work with makes running heat somewhat easier.

The Mr. built a little fireproof house for the new boiler. Not quite finished with all the plumbing and wiring yet, but pretty soon.

After the success of last week's action video, I thought I would make another one. This one features not only Gerry No Crack, but also the Mr. himself doing actual carpenter stuff.

  1. That action video was riveting! I just love the running commentary by the workers over the saw.


  2. Uh oh! Doesn't Gerry No Crack know that he's not supposed to be on the top step of the ladder. The stickers on the ladder clearly state this fact! No time to read that silly stuff, huh, Ger!
    What a transformation on the outside!
    Lookin' good, guys!

  3. Wow. I didn't think the Mr. actually existed - I thought he was just a cardboard cutout brought out for photo-ops! ;-) And I second what Mitch says - Gerry No Crack CLEARLY hasn't read the ladder warnings (or seen the amusing pictures that go along with them). Although in my limited experience the crazy, ah, good handy-persons seem to ignore those warnings (and the not-so-good ones find another line of work that allows them to work from a wheelchair!)... Nice work!

    -Dr. Liz, who is STILL contemplating the oily-rags-and-gasoline form of remodeling for our house :-D

  4. Looking better and better. Won't be long before the landscape guys are putting more foster bushes in your front yard to get them started, before transplanting them to the foster house as soon as they start looking really good. The exterior sure looks tons better with not only having been repaired, but with the nice color contrast.
