#1915House



When you move into a new house, every visitor gets the tour. Follow me through #1915House and see what I have planned for every room, and maybe what the rooms have planned for me.

My first DIY in the new house. The former owner had this shop for over 50 years, and someone else worked in it for 50 years before that. Now I’m taking it over to upcycle an old stump into a new serving tray. But will the sounds of my tools wake the former keepers of #1915House?

Finally putting a personal touch on the master bath of my 100 year old house by fabricating a custom pedestal sink. Who knows why the old owners made the bathroom so hard to get in and out of. It’s almost like they wanted to be trapped in here.

This 100 year old house is covered with paneling that was put up in the 60s. Why would they want to hide what’s back there? Time to tear it off and see what’s buried behind the walls of #1915House.

I don’t want to do a sheetrocking video. I just have to get the new drywall up over the crazy, cracked plaster stained with sooty breath marks. It’s the master bedroom, but it’s too creepy to sleep in it. So here’s just a snippet of what it’s like to carry 16 sheets of drywall up #1915House’s narrow staircase, all by yourself.

Now that the walls are taken care of (except for the windows that lead nowhere) it’s time to attack this worn, ugly carpet and free the hardwood floor trapped underneath. Remember to wear your respirator, because tearing up this old wall-to-wall is going to kick up a lot of ancient dust into #1915House.

After a decade of drought, the rains came like mad and revealed a leak in the roof of #1915House. That means I have to go into the attic to see if I can find the source. Of course, I accidentally uncovered two attic accesses someone tried to permanently seal with paneling, so I can crawl right in through my bedroom. It’ll be dark and spooky in there. Let’s see what’s been buried for 100 years.

Ever since I crawled through the attic, it’s like I hear a drone of voices coming from in there, or maybe in my head. But it’s time to create a cover to close the hatch that leads to the other side. I’ll insulate it and paint it to match the wall, but I really just want to get this done as quickly as possible, because things are getting too weird in #1915House.

I’m stepping away from upstairs projects. Things were getting a bit too weird up there, so it’s time to lighten things up in #1915House. The guest bathroom is getting a makeover, and though my Red-Headed-Lady-Friend is doing the bulk of the actual work on this project I’m going to add to it by hiding something behind the mirror for the next poor soul who does some home improvement in this 100 year old house. Ha!

Now that things are more normal in #1915House, I’m moving on to a project I’ve wanted to do since day one. Someone hid the original facade of the fireplace with these 1960s vertical tiles, but there might be a hidden treasure underneath. I’m going to expose what’s there and hope the secret I uncover is a cool one.

This is not a vlog. I don’t do dream journals or updates on my week. But something happened. Something I have to share with you, even though it’s not a DIY video. Things are getting too weird in #1915House and I need to post this in case… incase it’s the last thing I ever post.

Nothing has got according to plan in the renovation of #1915House. I’m done pretending the weirdness isn’t happening. I have to find out where this leads me.

There shouldn’t be a space like this in #1915House. There shouldn’t be in any house. I’m between the walls, or between the worlds, and there’s something in here with me.

The stairway in a 100 year old house can be steep, winding and treacherous. In #1915House it was always my plan to save that project for last. It looks like my time has finally come.

Every DIY comes with a before and after tour. Before there were so many plans and dreams for the future. After – the dreams turn to nightmares and there may be no future. Traveling back through the projects of #1915House may bring the answers, but it will defiantly bring the end.

The Seven o’Clock Man

You might not remember it, or maybe you’re too young to know, but there was a time when old downtown was a place you wouldn’t go. There were no hipster lofts or even grocery stores, and working men and women cleared out when the bell rang. They said it was a ghost town at night, but it wasn’t ghosts there after dark. It was us.

 

Wrong Side of a Workingman

You see the world for what it is, and you know we are in trouble. Ills beyond the reach of bankers and cops, soldiers and presidents and even kings threaten the fabric of our lives. What we need is a hero.

 

At the moment, he’s in darkness.
