Laundry Pedestal

Here’s the nearly finished laundry pedestal with a coat of primer. The odd cutout in the back is for the dryer vent. The drawer fronts make it look symmetrical.

I’ll show a shot when it’s done and in place

Demo work on the new house

Did some demo work on the house tonight. Opening up the kitchen to the dining room and removing the pantry (there’s another just around the corner).

Next step is to remove the 2×4’s.

The Nest…for the nest

Just picked up a couple of these for the new house.

I’m pretty geeked to see how these plus some other work we are going to be doing will affect the heating and cooling costs of house. Give it’s size those costs are substantial (at least they are to me).

Mac OS X and keyboard shortcuts

A couple of good reference pages for Mac OS X and keyboard shortcuts. I’m posting these because I have had several requests for information about these. Also, people seem surprised that you can create MORE shortcuts for an application via System Preferences.

My weekend of demolition

A picture from this weekend. Removing the tile and mortar bed. Tried to remove just the tile but the mortar bed wanted to come up as well.

This is NOT something you want to do if you can avoid it.
