Schaefermeyer Home Addition Vlog #50

I realized I haven't blogged about this video!  This was #50 in this addition process!  50 videos!

In this VLOG we got carpet installed.  I spent the time soldering a new motor controller board for my CNC machine.  The kids loved playing on the pad!

Schaefermeyer Home Addition Vlog #49

The siding guy finally finished!  He's the one contractor who we never caught his name.  He was very quite and very slow (in my mind).

We spent the night getting the floors ready for carpet.  I installed a few more rows of laminate flooring. Brittney shakes it for the camera!  She's so much fun!

I realized I never blogged this on when I published it.  More siding got done.  Mason talks to the camera and lets me know that Shadow caught a mouse!

Nov, 21st we installed the chair rail in Mason's room.  They are getting ready to paint his ceiling and we needed the chair rail primed.

The floor didn't get grounded down due to our general telling us that he rented a grinding machine and he would come do it on Monday.

Kind of a lame video this week.

This is November 20, 2015.

Another day!  Let's get on with this.  We have enjoyed the process of the painting because we wouldn't have done it this way.  It's interesting to watch things happen and hope that they have the same outcome even though you would have done it differently.

Today I took down the back deck that didn't go anywhere.

I figured I would rather tear it down then let the general.  No point in paying him for that, and I wanted to save the wood for some other projects I have in mind.

The siding guy showed up today and he looks like he takes his sweet time getting things done!

This is actually two days of work.  November 16th and 17th.  We took down the plastic so they can touch up the ceiling and get it ready for paint.

The trim work guys were amazing!  There were 7 of them and they had 4 miter saws setup out front.  They installed all of the trim in just 2 hours for the entire addition. I came home and was just amazed that they finished.

Hope you enjoy.

I talk a little about the brick and grout as well as the stucco.

They plastered the ceiling and I wanted to get some really closeup video of the process.

They actually came out and "started" laying the shingles.  I say "started" because apparently they didn't bring enough shingles.  They have been working away on the inside getting the sheet rock mudded and taped.

The general has some really weird things that he is doing.  I'm not sure why he chooses to do certain things.  He's obviously too busy and I'm not one to keep hounding someone to do the work they have promised to do.

Brittney and I know how construction works.  We are capable of doing this work ourselves.  So it makes it hard to sit around and wait for somebody to do the work.  Especially, when he doesn't do he work when it needs to be done.

We were told again that the siding and shingles would be installed today.

I set the cameras up to record the action!  Little action was found.

We did however get the basement window put in!  That had been a long time coming.

Thanks for following along.

Today was supposed to be siding and shingles.  That didn't happen, as usual.  I get really tired of a general contractor who just tells you what he thinks you "want" to hear!

I'm just glad that some progress happened!

Today I set up the camera after talking with the brick mason for about 20 minutes.

We talked about his company, how long he's been a mason, I asked if he knew my old back door neighbor growing up (Gene Tidwell).

Because of my experience with the sheet rock guy the other day, I specifically asked him about doing he time-lapse video.  He said that it wouldn't be a problem.  Then I leave to work and he walks over and turns the camera off!  ARGH!!! SO FRUSTRATING!  Why not just tell me that you don't want it to record you!

This was November 3, 2015.  This is the second day of this crew hanging sheet rock. Some people don't want to be videoed!  I understand his feelings but, I wish he would understand what I'm trying to do with the videos.

Brittney helps out with the VLOG today and takes you on a tour of the inside.

Ali, Kacy, and Shadow make their appearances today as well.

Today another crew showed up to do the sheet rock.  They were both nice guys.  One of them obviously didn't like being involved in a time lapse video!

They did a really good job of matching everything up and making it look good.
