Web sites are dumb

June 15th, 2012 by nebulous

Finally got my web site working again. My provider upgraded from PHP 4 to 5, which broke all of my XML processing. I fixed it. It’s important because my audience is almost up to 1.

Expected vs Actual

April 7th, 2011 by nebulous

As promised, here’s a recent picture. Other than the cabinet doors (maybe unnecessary) and that stupid black receptacle that I forgot to replace, it’s finished. Here’s the original design against the final product.

It don’t mean a thing…

April 5th, 2011 by nebulous

The family room is finished except for the cabinet doors. I’ll upload a finished photo soon enough. I know that I took awhile to finish all the trim painting, but I had another project distracting me.

Can you find the shed? Seriously, can you find the 10 foot long shed? The answer is no, because there’s a giant swing set (aka in-law suite) in the way. They call that the Ultra Fortress. We ordered something simpler, but they sent that by mistake. We called to report their mistake, but they told us to keep it. It only took Kristen and I about 30 hours to assemble. If you’re ever in the market for one of these, pay the additional $400 for assembly. It’s worth it.

Floor Score and 7 Years Ago…

February 21st, 2011 by nebulous

See what I did there? It’s Presidents’ Day and I made a holiday-appropriate pun. We installed the new floor today. That required removing the old floor. I’m not sure which made me more sore. Updated Pictures

Progressing 9-pounds at a time

February 17th, 2011 by nebulous

I know it’s been 10 days. I have made some minor progress, as evidenced here. Recent surgery has slowed me down a bit for a couple weeks. I’m not allowed to lift anything over 10 pounds. So Kristen has me putting up crown moulding in 8-inch sections. Nevertheless, the end is in sight. I’m finishing all the ceiling trim right now. Then I can caulk/paint everything, add the floor, then finish with the baseboards/quarter-round.

And then there were two…shelves

February 7th, 2011 by nebulous

I haven’t been posting lately, but I have been taking pictures. Here’s proof. The shelves are coming together nicely. I’m dreading the tons of caulking I’m going to have to do at the end of this.

Doing all the boring stuff…

January 12th, 2011 by nebulous

I am still working on the shelves. None of the progress has been very photo-worthy recently. I had to run network and cable through my crawl space for the TV. The last few days have been spent priming/painting plywood and cutting it to size. I’ll start assembling one of the lower cabinets soon. That might make for some more interesting pictures.
