I have recently completely gutted my home, and I'm adding a 30x24 addition and a 24x24 garage. I have hired the framing out. My question.....is there any reason this should take more than 80 hours of labor? The foundation is complete, all I'm asking is for it to be framed and under roof and fanfolled and windows put in?
I recently removed existing linolium squares from my basement floor, only to find a black glue-like residue covering the concrete that is slightly tacky in spots. Do I need to remove it somehow, or can I paint right over it?
Our 27-year old Wichita, KS, kitchen needs new appliances, a new sink, flooring, lighting, and countertops, though the layout is very functional. Everything in this kitchen works--it's just worn, outdated and not energy efficient. If we do part of the kitchen remodeling now, and part in about 18 months, what would you do first, and why?
