Amazing how $$ grow on home remodeling projects.

 

Well, better getting nice fixtures than the cheapy stuff and then having to replace them a year later.  I tell my wife to spend a bit more on quality so we don't have to revisit issues. I'm dreading the day I have to replace our HVAC.  It's 20 years old and I've been band aiding it for the last 2 years.  So next year, I'll be spending the $$$$ to replace it.  Maybe my bedrooms upstairs will finally cool right, LOL.

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   

SuperSpeed protocol had to take a day off yesterday. My son asked me to help him redo plumbing and tile work. While he set the tile, I did the cutting with the 'wet' tile saw. Hot, humid 11 hour day,

You remember the quality long after you forget the price. For anything, including golf gear.

Can I ask some of the folks who are having their bathrooms re-done if they are willing to share about price.

 

I have an older home with 2 bathrooms upstairs that are small by today's standards (each about 5' x 9'). They are in rough shape and pretty much need to be gutted.

 

To create the illusion of more space, I really want to go with a tankless toilet, which I'm sure will add more but I think could be worth it.

We are almost done getting a bathroom gutted and remodeled - going on 8 weeks. Initial estimate was 6 or 7, but ran in to electrical, plumbing, and an order issue that extended things. Not hateful, but it's been a long summer for teenage daughters having to use the basement bathroom. Our initial spending goal has been blown out of the water, but not by the contractor - labor costs will be pretty close to the initial estimate - my wife and I apparently have expensive taste in fixtures, etc.

Sounds like we have a lot in common. I told my wife just to pick what she wanted at the start of the project so I didn't have to deal with change orders.

I have a much greater appreciation for men who work with tile...

Nice tile work. I don't have that kind of patience.

Long story short, we bought our home 3 years ago from the same couple who built it 50 years ago as a custom house.

 

This used to be a wall; my father and I opened it up to the dining room for better flow and utility.

 

With that, the trim below needed work. Yesterday we finally got to remodeling the trim and was disappointed when we saw the original trim was this absolutely gorgeous white maple. We saved that and plan to repurpose it but managed to fit the remaining with wainscot. We managed to get 90% done and just have the base and shoe before paint.

 

I love this thread, we've done a ton of projects since owning our home.

Thanks.. that little shower is shaped like a octagon... not really but it isn't square... not one bit.

Show me a house that is square and I'll say it's not real

I cringe at the thought of tossing it. I already have an idea to repurpose it.
