Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

We coated my rolled roofing with some “elastometric” coating/sealant that adds about a dozen years to the roof's life. We are just finishing putting on the second coat (see first pic) and it really looks good and adheres well. My brother has used this stuff a lot and does many jobs coating roofs in the Southwest with this material. Has to be rolled on and the edges hand brushed but it is worth the time to do it right. Stuff is about $100 per 5-gallon bucket. I’m very happy with how it came out.




Done!

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

Owning a house is a pain and having your own well is nice but a pain also. Recently had to replace my solenoid switch that turns on/off the well pump for filling the pressure tank. Old one had worn contacts and was starting to short out. Made in USA it was so old. Replaced it with the same brand, Square D, made in Mexico. It was very well built so they have maintained their standards. Was just as well built as the one I replaced which I guess was at least 40 years old.


Putting on a new front door. Very nice Douglas fir door that I'm finishing myself. Will be a pain as the former builders muddled up the install some but that's normal around here with all the self built/do it yourself houses/repairs etc.


Then I go off to Southern California for a bit. And yes, it's a secret what I'll do down in that crazy land.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

Wrapping up my visit to California and driving home soon. I helped an old friend get her place ready for sale. Did everything from re-grouting kitchen tile, to dismantling a gargantuan armoire, to packing stuff to send to Italy.

Now I head back to the land of milk and honey and reasonable temperatures and far less people.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

I didn't do a before pic of my front door because it would have been too embarrassing but the after pic of my new door and trim (incense cedar, which I will leave natural) makes the house look so much better. My brother helped me with the installation. I finished the natural fir door myself with semi-gloss polyurethane. The door/jam only cost 1,000 bucks. And that's fairly cheap for such a nice well-made door.


The previous door was not just ugly - it was actually an interior door that was used for the exterior - my father wanted to replace it but never got around to it.

Helps keep people away. Actually, there is a step/platform that sets right on the cement slap by the door. Which is now installed; I took the photo without to get the full splendor of my new marvelous door.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

problem is once you make something new the other stuff around it looks worse and you end up rebuilding the whole shebang. now get to work.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

I'm going to paint my house blue. Sort of a sky blue.
