Thanks for the compliments.

Here's the bedroom I'm working on now. My house is old as dirt so the retarded contractors kept ploping on floors to try to level out the settling. You can see the original subfloor and what's left of the fir t/g flooring. I put a few hours in yesterdaqy and got as far as pulling up 2/3 of the t/g flooring to save for somewhere else in the house. I can decide whether I'm going to level it in the simillar manner with those sleepers or totally remove the flooring and sister the floor joists with new ones.

We went through that last year, when we had work done all over the house. It was a real pain in the neck, but now it's so nice!
Look at these Italian glass tiles we had installed behind our kitchen counter...

the two things I learned from a kitchen remodel years ago:

1) that electric frying pan in the basement you haven't used in years is now your new best friend.

2) Cheerios don't flush.

LOL Robo.

Constance, that's exactly what I want to do for a back splash in my kitchen. In fact, that blue mason jar is the accent color in my kitchen. I think it plays off nicely to the orange walls. Your counters are beautiful.

I loved it when I discovered this - I've used them for teaching "aim" with all my sons!
