Why alcohol? You never mentioned any alcohol!

Edit: after putting my glasses on I realized you said "don't put any Alcohol on that". I thought it said "did you put the alcohol on that." Dammit!

Horn's a bit long, but we'll let that slide since you're not a finish carpenter...

It needed to go past enough to get the whole bullnose bottom covered and still get it coated right. There's nothing I do that doesn't get thought out.

The only time I picked up a piece of sand paper is to and the metal bullnose. Maybe 5 minutes. I'm ready for paint.

Frankly, I'm a bit surprised you didn't cap that wall with a piece of left over Trex from your last job...

When it comes to your own house, you're suddenly a wood guy, but you don't have a problem selling that plastic chit to your customers?

Preference doesn't mean I think it's better or worse. For interior I'm all for the real wood look. Wood and outdoor elements don't bode well together.

I've got 4, I might put in 1 or 2 more. Not sure yet. The ceiling dives down quickly, and it may be a nuisance.

Re: My Office Remodel.


Just got yelled at by Mrs. Cali for dust when I was sweeping. It was very little dust too. So I had to do this. She was at work all the other times I swept. Shhhhhh!
