    Re: Does this count as detailing

    I wish you the best on your project. I have to agree with LED, owning a old home is a love/hate relationship. My home was built in 1909 and bought it in 2009. My house is 90% brick and whoever before me purchasing it started the outside project, new roof, trim and siding on a few places that were later additions. The yard needed help, but the interior was run down, spent 3 months everyday working on the inside prior to moving in. Luckily for me my father was a contactor and I worked and learned a lot with him, so mostly only material cost and my time. My father in law and I, replaced drywall, subflooring, etc. I took a sledge hammer to the kitchen, all new, and fully redid 3 full baths.

    I too want to see how this turns out. After you may not want to sell!

    Dave.

    Ah, don`t you just love the old brittle asbestos concrete siding?

    I`m an old house fan myself, just more character than brand new. The house I`m in now was built in `52 and is actually a little newer than I like.

    Heh heh, never occurs to me what might be considered "old" I still think of "old houses" as having lath-and-plaster/boiler heat/etc. The house I grew up in was built in the `20s, and it was newer than many back then. I had a rude awakening when I bought my first place, it`s like these days *nothing* is built the way everything used to be; thirty years later I`m still getting used to, uhm...modern construction materials and techniques...to put it politely.

    We’ve had the original siding showing way to long, our heating bill has been astronomical since there ain’t much insulation except in nursery which was just finished in fall of ‘16

    Civicclutch- Huh, never crossed my mind that the lack of siding would be that significant with regard to insulation/etc.
