That chipboard makes for an interesting wall plus the electrical box and romex emoji33.png


Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

Yea there was a whole wall like that that I knocked down thank goodness for balloon frame houses that allow me to destroy that BS instead of just fixing it. Under that crappy chip board is two layers of 1x12 planks from way back in the day. Notice the hole in the floor that at one point had a chimney that will need to be framed from above and have plywood placed over it to fix that mess.

We did a ton this year but this has to be my favorite. My parents helped us build this in our family room.  

Almost finished building myself a new smoker, will get it done tomorrow before seasoning it and hopefully getting some ribs cooked. Sunday morning   Monday afternoon   

The biggest thing I haven't been able to fix so far is the lack of a simulator.

Can you save the 1 X 12's or reuse them somewhere else? Reconditioned they'd make a great accent wall.

I salvaged as many as I could that did not break. They will be used as trim around the windows I'm redoing. When I renovate the other half I'm going to try to save more of them and use them as cabinets when I redo the kitchen. I'm a huge fan of the salvaged wood look so I will be using them for as much as possible even a coffee table for my living room.

If you're doing a remodel I highly recommend this insulation it is phenomenal and a great sound proofed also. Anything fire resistant to 2100 degrees is a plus take it from a firefighter if I'm putting it in it's because it'll make my house safer. Could only fit 3 things of insulation in my truck but I got half of it done need to run wiring and plumbing this weekend so I can finish the installation and keep my house warmer since it's getting colder faster than expected.

Those wall studs are robust!

Love the new windows as well...your reduced heating bill will offer you a nice raise this winter!

Just curious what are you using for the gaps between the studs/header and the Windows. If you haven't decided, I might recommend using the RockWood and stuffing it in the gap. Then a layer of caulk to seal it. Years ago I used foam insulation which distorted (slightly) the window frame. This was a better solution - at least for me.

I'll cut some of the same insulation I am putting in the walls into those openings. I have to spend quite a bit to get the insulation done but it'll help me save money on oil which will be nice.

A trick I leaned from a builder was to put a layer of caulk over the insulation - sealing the window frame to the studs. That'll further minimize any air filtration.

Are you pouring concrete or doing a stud floor?

Was thinking of digging and then putting in a gravel pad as the base. Then maybe spacing some pavers on the ground to keep a little space between the floor and ground.

Heaviest items in there will be a lawn mower and snow blower.

That works. My personal preference is the wood floor with the framed joists beneath. Same as you’re planning with a blower and a walk behind. 
 

The wood floor joists was easier to start and keep level throughout the build.

What type of foundation? I did a concrete one back in Sydney many, many years ago. Here, I'd be going with ground contact treated 6x6's and a 1/2-3/4"  marine ply floor.

For a couple of sheds we had dropped here I leveled the ground and put about 4" of 3/4 stone as the base.  However, those sheds are on 4x4 runners with wood flooring.   In our area no permits are required for the method I used.   A neighbor put 6 x 6 around the perimeter of their stone base which is about 2' larger than the footprint of their shed.  Set into the ground a few inches and rebar'ed in place, it has held up well and looks nice.  

If you are looking for something more permanent then a concrete pad with framing bolted to a pressure treated sill plate may be the direction you want to go.

Just spent 2 plus grand on some tools, insulation, drywall, and some lighting for my renovation. Some will be getting delivered which is nice and I can put my dog kennels back in my truck.

Hmm.  Table saw, jig saw, nail gun... what could possibly go wrong at the Shanks house today...? 

I’ll post some before and after pictures if it doesn’t look like crap. 😂
