Re: Citristrip questions

About the heat gun, this is the typical result after I use the heat gun to strip multiple layers. There's always stuff that gets left behind, or am I doing something wrong?

Re: Window Restoration Education

Also there is a how too under the reference heading. Sorry to be dense, but what does this mean? The Reference sub forum, I think. But I looked and I can't find a How To for windows specifically . Here's a link for a book that seems a standard recommended for windows: Save America's Windows I do se...

Re: The devil is in the details, or not.

They are out there, some cheap, others not so much. The Dragon only cost me $200 Canuck bucks. Cheap in my mind. What puts it over the top from the ordinary is the applied dragons, puts it a bit out side of the normal, and to top it off none the dragons have lost their horns. I think maybe ordinary...

Nicely done, Vala. If I'd never seen the photo with the vinyl, I'd have assumed the "new" one was always there. :thumbup:

Re: Beebe -- our 1935 Bungalow on Baker Street.

And now our energy assessment has ended. Unfortunately, I knew a bit more on some things that he did. Fortunately, he knew a bit more on some things than I did. So it sort of balanced out.

Re: Beebe -- our 1935 Bungalow on Baker Street.

Time is flying by, but we have not been idle. First, I want to make good on what I said I would do last post. Our visit with my in-laws. Sean's Mom was born in nearby Fitchburg, though her family soon moved back to Florida after she was born. She knew the address of the maternity hospital where she ...

Re: What I did at my house today...

That will be a project you can savor for many, many years. :thumbup: Well I usually save my stuff for a blog post but since I'm behind on blogging ... I've been repointing the foundation with lim...

Re: Help With Siding

Aaannd right after I posted that and waded through my second link from OHD, I found this 1910 craftsman...note the belt course on that house seems to go all the way around. But you can also see with the half porch roof wrap section what I meant about treating it like a front dormer. https://www.oldh...
