Good thanks!

Whitelash 2017-07-29 01:22:53  

I have no experience in carpentry and I just moved into my own house

RevStench 2017-07-29 01:23:08  

laminate is going to be cheaper than tile, and you can probably get it the exact same look.

RevStench 2017-07-29 01:39:50  

Ignore that cat, but this is a bamboo laminate.

You say ignore that cat as if it's not wearing a tie...

RevStench 2017-07-29 02:04:17  

haha it was Sunday, he was getting ready for church.

@whitelash1488#3099 if you're looking to change the look of a room relatively inexpensively, you can add chair rails, picture rails, crown molding, or wainscoting to the walls. Adding 5 1/4in baseboard, if you don't already have it, can make a big difference to a room. And I can teach you scarf joints and mitered coping joints!
Here's a house I added crown, a chair rail and we added I think the baseboard was something like 8inches.

Oh this is vinyl, it looks great too. There are a ton of options for flooring.

RevStench 2017-07-29 02:45:47  

You could literally have the hardwood floor look in every room, using laminate, vinyl and tile.
The only place I like carpet is in the bedrooms.

Whitelash 2017-07-29 03:09:58  

@RevStench#3208 Wow thanks! I'll have to save up and get ahold of you! I love IE everyone's so helpful and kind

Whitelash 2017-07-29 03:10:30  

I'm 23 and a newer home owner so I'm excited to make the place look nice

RevStench 2017-07-29 22:37:05  

This is tile in a bathroom.

Finished this one, pretty basic but might be a good lesson to start with

Deleted User 2017-07-30 21:33:17  

Nice!

RevStench 2017-07-30 21:47:19  

Nice bro, looks good. Here's a great little chart to help with how high thing's should be.

Deleted User 2017-07-30 21:52:20  

That's pretty wild where did you get that chart at? Is that something that you got at work

RevStench 2017-07-31 01:29:21  

@Deleted User I honestly can't remember. It was on my phone from Dec 2015. Not from work, but it's a good one.

Deleted User 2017-07-31 01:47:24  

@Alexander B. - SC looks sharp

RevStench 2017-07-31 16:24:23  

Painting today. Anyone interested in learning how to paint like a boss? No tape cut in?

Deleted User 2017-07-31 16:40:09  

Yup

Deleted User 2017-07-31 16:40:23  

I'm actually talented at cutting for some strange reason

Envian 2017-07-31 17:25:36  

Yeah go for it, should be interesting to see

RevStench 2017-07-31 21:07:47  

First thing, you pull paint no smear. It's like using a file, one direction.
You dip your paint brush in the paint. Wipe one side off using the lip of the can.

RevStench 2017-07-31 21:14:11  

You paint with one side of the brush, pulling the paint.

RevStench 2017-07-31 21:15:33  

To hold, grip the brush really low on the brush, using your fingers to make the bristles stiff.

RevStench 2017-07-31 21:22:07  

Take your time and pull the paint. Steady hands

RevStench 2017-07-31 21:31:44  

It all comes down to how you hold it. I use the 3 fingers on the bristles to stiffen them for better control.

Anyone good with plumbing

RevStench 2017-08-02 23:29:13  

What problem are you having? @Whitelash

Deleted User 2017-08-02 23:39:27  

I do plumbing too

Whitelash 2017-08-03 02:25:41  

I live In upstate New York so my water pump outside is always frozen in the winter

Whitelash 2017-08-03 02:26:01  

I'm going to try and get my water pump inside and re fun all the pipeing

Whitelash 2017-08-03 02:26:06  

How hard should it be?

Deleted User 2017-08-03 05:06:54  

If you are talking about reconnecting the pump once it's inside the house it should not be too bad. They make a product called pecs which is a plastic water line with compression fittings. The requires a $100 tool to crimp them but when you're done you can take it back to Home Depot and return it for your money. If you're talking about rerunning pipe outside I would need a little more information. But anytime you can keep a water line deeper than 18 inches in the ground it won't freeze
