|Done with wall!
||[Jun. 8th, 2001|03:18 am]
now structurally complete! (All pics)The wall is |
I should go to bed... I have a final tomorrow. (just music)
Tomorrow I think we'll all start moving our stuff around (nobody is staying in the same place) and then we'll need to tape/mud/paint the wall sometime. We have everything but the paint, but Kenji (Mr. Painter) will have that soon enough.
KICKASS!!! (building is fun)
Oh, and Mom --- I still have 10 fingers. And we didn't destroy the house, and it didn't cost $400-$500 ... only $120. (she was trying to dissuade us from building it, since she's Mrs. Carpenter and I'm only geek son that can't use a saw... isn't that right, ma? :-P)
Congrats on your wall, it's a beaut! Can I hire The Brad Team when I get around to making house alterations?

your mom is Jesus??
Well spank me silly.
Nice job on the wall.
Looks like your mom's not half bad at that stuff either. ;)
Why do I get the impression she wanders the house looking for things to either build from wood or coat in wood? :)
would suggest that you did NOT use the saw.
Now why is that brad????? Is it because you can't?????? TELL US THE TRUTH, THAT IS ALL WE ASK FOR.
Why was he wearing a paper crown all the time?

Because if he didn't, I wouldn't of asked.

well done :) nice and tight- looks solid.
you guys know how to do the mudding and such? if not, elt me know- i've rebuilt 4 houses...
( also- did you nail the header and footers in, or are they in merely by pressure from the beams?)
i'm thinking of security deposit here ;)
Kenji knows how to do the mudding, having built a house with his mom a few years ago.
Heh... not destroying the house was a design goal from the beginning. It's designed to be taken apart... we used screws everywhere instead of nails. The frame is kept in place by pressure, yeah.... then the studs are screwed in to that.

nice- we're thinking of doing that here, amybe- roomie's puter setup is in living room, and it sucks having to be super quiet, or cross noise between tv and his puter.

I am fucking impressed, yo!
