Of course,this project won't be complete until you regale us with your "After Action Report" from your first test drive and coffee of the new vitreous china device coupled with the vent fan actuation ! We'll stand by for your full report.(And I don't mean out in your hallway) :lol:

Nice Job Mike, I like the picture with the hammer in it, all my projects seem to have something like that in them. I didn't have much work last year so I remodeled my kitchen, I should try to figure out how to post pictures of that, it was a big job but that's what builders do when they get bored. Next is a second garage just for cars when I can come up with the cash!! Always the kicker!

http://nepacrossroads.com/download/file ... .........a couple before pic's

The wife wanted a craftsman/ vintage look and that's what I could do for a couple hundred bucks! I will get some vintage hardware when the money start comin' in again. :D Well I am pretty much finished until spring, I will do a tile job in the shower and most likely try a paint product for the cast iron tub I don't see a reason to trash a perfectly good tub. Thanks for looking!

HB the last pic is the manual vent fan actuation devise e.t.a. 6:00 a.m. :lol:

Love to see the pic's of the new kitchen. I will try my best at telling you how to post pic's. Insert memory card from camera into computer, on nepa "post reply screen", click upload attachment...window opens, click pictures, choose pic, click open, and then on the nepa screen click on add file and wait for the upload to end before you type anything.
My kitchen is the next big item, I will save one 12 foot stretch of base cabinets and paint and glaze and then make new doors and make all new uppers and a baker's area, I think it is called a "Hoosier" on of the first built-ins made for the modern homemaker a 100 years ago :D we've gone full circle! I also want to try my hand at a custom wood exhaust hood.

Maybe they are to keep freaks from looking out! :lol: sorry couldn't help it. I hear yah, you can get a new sash only if you have replacement windows. They also have frosted glass sheets that you can stick on glass (like tint film) and remove whenever you want to look out!

Thanks ff, I do want to get my hands on an old oak library table or oak dry sink to make a vanity and use an old porcelin bowl for the sink and the water spickets coming out of the wall like jail, I..I..mean rehab..I, I, mean the old days :doh: the Mrs. bought a new white one from Habitat for Humanity, I'm not crazy about it but the 100 bucks goes to a good place and it takes the heat off me for being too period specific. I'll check them out.

I have bathroom 1964, started 1 year ago, 1 more door, trim and some tile work done! Lightning fast in my world :oops: I just get so fussy sometimes. New tub/shower surround, floor, subfloor, toilet, and regrouted all the original tile. Also removed baseboard heat on outside wall near toilet, what a bad place for baseboard fin tube. With coal we do not use fin tube anyhow, and bride uses ceiling fan/heater anyways.

Great job!
I also want to try my hand at a custom wood exhaust hood.
we make those all the time in these mega kitchens I install down here. Crazy stuff. But the trim you are doing is far superior to what these knots heads are calling trim! They sheetrock everything and stick moldings on with glue and shoot baseboard onto the sheetrock without finding studs and on and on. But that is the market here. My house will be exceptional when I'm done and I will put up some pictures. Nothing like those Victorians some of you louts have(envy) but better then the locals here have.

It was actually a shame to rip that out, appears it was the original install from the 50's and it was in perfect condition. Concrete backing and all.... It's too bad the color sucked.
