That is one huge pepper grinder....
Now about those countertops....
Yeah it is. Came with place actually. I first saw it,it was
As for the countertops.....
Figures somone would notice. Came with the place. Like the floor.
we're starting a major project as soon as the weather clears. The roof of our single story rancher is 4 - sided (can't remember the term.) we are taking the roof off, putting a 9-12 pitch roof on and putting 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on top of our existing house. this isn't really diy, as my neighbor is contractor / handyman and is heading it up...but i'll be heavily involved. the plan was to have it under the new roof by thanksgiving...but permits are a ***** and now we're waiting until spring. sucks because i jumped the gun in anticipation and took all the gutter, fascia and soffit off of the house...

we don't have a basement. there'll be some water around the foundation, and it does concern me......if the weather breaks for a week or two in winter we'll try...but probably it will be late feb. / early march. contractor says it shouldn't be a huge deal. not something you want to have for a really long time, obviously.

Alrighty then. New flooring and case and base in the bathroom. Cabinets mostly refinished with new hardware installed. I put some quarter round at the base of the tub as well. New shower head and a few other things have been installed as well. Just a bit of fine tuning and this sucker is done,(no money for a new door so that'll have to wait or be done by somebody else. ).
Flooring in kitchen all but done. Just have to seal the grout. I added a 39 1/2 rod to the bottom of the top cabinet on the left and hung the coffee cups there. Insta room in the cabinets part one. Added the rod with hanger on the wall to the left and hung my pots and lids on it. Insta room in the cabinets part 2. "Laundry Room" in the back there has been largley re-done as well. Cabinets painted,shelves have adhesive liners,and doors have new hardware. The rod at the top goes from wall to wall,(leftover from the walk-in makeover), and comes in handy to hang clothes right up. Yes. I know. The fly swatters I just hung there temporarily to get out of the way. Though if this was New York,it would be called "brilliant". I hung a small rod under one cabinet in the laundry room and hung a small basket shelf from it. Perfect spot for the chargers for my camer and drill batteries. Hung a shelf from the bottom of the other cabinet,(using nice little chains),which added a bit more storage space back there too. It's coming along,but kitchen still has some work,(no. Not including the countertop).

I have a question for you DIY guys. I'm one of the most unhandy, handymen around. My question is, I have a dual AC/Heat system for upstairs and downstairs. Two seperate thermostats. The lower T-stat is going through my backup batteries like crazy. What is my problem? Why is the system running off the batteries only (I'm assuming)? I know it's not a wiring problem as the system works when the batteries are in. Did my fuse go out? Or did the T-Stat itself go out? The upstairs one is the same T-stat and I haven't changed the batteries. We just moved in 3 months ago and I'm on my 3rd set of batteries on the lower unit. Maybe someone in here has had the same problem and could help.
