Doom! And gloom! Snowfall so far is more snow then anything, not seeing much of the ice, or doom! Or gloom! That they said would accompany the storm.

Yeah, me! Course they call me other things too! Like "horrible abomination in the eyes of physics"! But like I care! Physics's eyes suck! It's why they're always wearing glasses! Look what happens when I take 'em away! Ha ha ha ha ha! It's funny watching stupid people run into walls that weren't there a minute ago!!

So here's my project for the week: Completely ripping out the garage interior, insulating it, "repairing" the concrete floor, adding drywall, carpeting, and lighting, and hoping Impus Major likes it enough to move in.

So, since many of you are in construction, any suggestions on a "decent but not expensive or exhausting" way to fix the floor? The cracks are up to 1" wide and 3"-4" deep, plus since the slab was poured in 1929 there's been a bit of seismic activity.

My plan is to just buy a 5-gallon bucket of concrete patch, fill in the cracks, ignore any hope of leveling, and put a carpet over it, figuring a teenager can survive much worse. I know the proper thing to do would be to jackhammer out the entire slab and re-pour it, but with $500 to my name and 4 days to work on it, that's not happening.

Anyway, I'll take photos of the progress, because it's silly.

I think the patch job is your best bet, replacing the slab is going to be harder and more expensive then anyone will tell you.

Yeah, doesn't look too bad, patching should do the trick.

Maybe it's just the picture, but finding a way to make it look bigger might go a long way towards habitation, looks a bit claustrophobic in there, but that could just be how the picture was taken. :-)

Is there a way to the toilet/bathroom from inside or will the denizen of this cell accommodation have to go outside?

I cut a hole in the wall and build a pine staircase. The kids call it the "gateway to Whimseyshire".

Once I'm done with everything else, I'll add a door and everything...

Oh, just wait 'til I pull all the crap out of the walls. The guy who owned this place in the 50's was a "handyman" in his own eyes, but nobody else's. His answer to EVERYTHING was the stalwart 4" nail:

  • The scrap wood you're using to build the studio isn't long enough to provide decent rafters? That's OK, nail a few boards together, it'll be fine! (My favorite result was that the roof sagged as he put layer after layer of roofing on it trying to get it level, so scraping the roof was like cleaning a plate of cold nachos)
  • Termites took out a massive 4"x12" beam supporting the corner of the house? Don't buy a new one! Nail some scrap wood in there instead!
  • Need to put up a 12" shelf? Use 4" nails! That shelf'll NEVER come down!

  • He also (in)famously switched hot and neutral on all the grounded outlets in the studio, which would have been loads of fun if any of our electronics had ever shorted. The studio ended up being so mis-built we just bulldozed it and rebuilt it from scratch.

    But yeah, just wait 'til tomorrow afternoon's picture when you get to see the garage WITHOUT all the shelving and other crap on the walls. I've got all day. I've got a 3' crowbar and a 6-pound sledge. I think things can be convinced to come loose...

    Nobody said: "Hey kids, wanna demolish part of the house without parents getting angry!"?

    Curses! And here I spent all the Christmas money on presents for the family.

    Although I would have to bring my own 20 lb sledgehammer, I just don't think I can use something so tiny for demolition. Maybe for nailing it all back together with 4" inch nails at the end.

    If I wasn't worried about exactly what's IN those walls, I'd totally do it. But it's ancient lath-and-plaster, so I'm going the whole "respirator and goggles, HEPA vaccum at the end".

    Somehow I don't want to expose my kids to that. Go figure...

    Another legend gone... I don't know if it's bad end for the year, or just a good thing it wasn't bad start of the incoming year :/

    I don't drink alone (or much at all) but the news made me want a hard drink. I don't have Jack Daniels, though...

    Ah, well, besides a short impulse, I am not feeling like changing my ways anyway...

    One more f^&*( time...


    Of course I am no longer sleepy now...

    I think it was a batman-like signal to call you to share your expertise as someone who currently does construction-related works in response to Nobody's post. Or maybe I read the FHDM's intent wrong...

    Our storm doom and gloom turned out to be an even 6 inches of snow with just enough icy rain to give everything a sparkle-ness seldom attained outside of Twilight.

    Alright, I read you. Unfortunately, I know f#$~-all about pouring cement other than "use a level, dummy" and "make sure you get all the air bubbles out or you won't get paid." I think I've hammered up more cement than I've poured. I went to trade school for electrical, and I've worked with landscaping, drywall, and demolition/remodeling, so if you want to know stuff about that, I can give an answer (not necessarily a good and/or relevant one, though).

    The thing is, I never read the book, and even I knew that wasn't even close to it. It wasn't a bad movie, just bad in comparison to what the previous standard had been.

    Although I'm tempted to use the Advanced Race Guide to hammer out a half elf-half dwarf race for my brother's campaign "Tolkien said I could!" "Peter Jackson's Tolkien isn't recognized in this Tolkien-esque world!"

    Inspirational video. Think of what it could become if it listened to the words of the monster and passed to the dark side...

    Also, seeing a teddy bear sitting on a nearby short wall yesterday was helpful to imagine that.

    At this point, mostly fear of prison rape. That's what keeps me from breaking the law. Otherwise three square meals, a bed, no job, and plenty to read sounds heavenly.

    Until you realize it lasts for years and years and all they have is s!*!ty books and horrendous food.

    Even without getting raped, it's still not a place to end up.

    Risk vs reward, like any gamble.

    No reward is worth the risk of rape.

    I might have risked major nonviolent crimes with enough fiscal potential, otherwise. Not with that as a possibility, though. Nope. No sir.

    That... that is what goes on at women's prisons, isn't it?
