    Moved one return air from 9" duct to 14" return air duct



    And what happens when you foot slips...

    You fall all the way down? My wife did that last year from our attic. She avoided falling down two floors with some very lucky acrobatics.....

    I caught myself somehow. I don't remember much of what happened. Foot slipped, went through ceiing, I caught myself, looked down and thought shit, that's the kitchen, got up and took picture and texted GF saying we need to cancel get together or do it at my brothers instead because the kitchen is a disaster. That's the extent of the details I remember.

    Lucky. My wife went through, but somehow swung over to the second floor hallway that was a few feet away from where she fell.

    My chest is about 16" wide which is about 1.5 wider then gap between joists and shoulders are 22" wide. Even front to back of my chest is 13" so even if sideways I barely fit through joists.

    Got my GF some organization stuff for her birthday as she is going crazy trying to organize and she wouldn't normally spend the money on this stuff as she is thrifty and these aren't that cheap.







    Gonna add some partitions next to pots and pans one for cookie sheets and stuff. Got on for each cabinet we have so far. Really helps organize this stuff. 2 15" cabinets, a 24" cabinet and the 30" cabinet with pots and pans

    Latest project

    Kitchen when we bought house. Wet bar opened to living room so it was just a wall eating into kitchen.














    Also removed load bearing column that was at front of counter using a blind header in attic. Phase 1 was turning old wet bar into counter, phase 2 was removing old stove, oven, cabinets next to pantry, this is phase 3.



    Next will be adding 2 floor to ceiling cabinets on left and right of old sink and turn old sink spot into a counter for cook books and stuff . still trying to decide if we leave fridge where it's at and turn old pantry into counter. Or move fridge where pantry is and turn old spot into counter. Biggest reason for moving fridge is visual. So when you walk through that kitchen entrance you can see all of kitchen which makes it look and feel bigger.

    Yes, plywood counters until we are done in case layout changes.

    In case anyone is curious, I calculated money spent on materials for taxes, we have spent about $20k so far without windows. Paid 155k for house, house down Street that's 150sqft smaller and refreshed(new carpet, paint, etc. No where near what we have done) just sold for 224k. We wouldn't have spent as much if it wasn't gonna be our house for the next 7 years or so. We could probably get $230k right now when I am done.
