    Yeah, you're about the third person who's told me about the Zinsser stuff. I'm going to do a test wall with the 1-2-3 and the Kilz and see how it sticks. The trick with the latex stuff is prep. You have to wash with TSP and sand. If I can't get an acceptable result with the latex I'll go the oil route. I'm a bit sensitive to strong chemical smells and literally every wall and ceiling in this place needs to be covered.

    Scored an old Craftsman table saw from a friend yesterday. It took three guys to load it in the back of the truck. :gdogBack down to TorC Wednesday to start the roof job and sub floor repairs.

    And this little baby was waiting for me at the door Friday...:raabia

    I love tools like most women love jewelry. :-)

    You'll definitely love those 20V XR brushless Dewalt's. :thumb
    I started with that drill (the compact?), driver and 3/8 drive impact at work. After several years of daily work abuse, they're still awesome. I've since changed over almost every power tool I have to the 20V XRs.
    Once you start down that path, very similar to cameras. Nikon or Canon? Dewalt or Milwaukee?
    All my corded and air powered stuff is slated for the eventual garage sale.

    I'm embarrassed to say this is my first non-chorded power tool. :shog Took me a long time to drink the battery operated kool-aid. :lol3

    You'll never go back to cords.
    I used the heck out of my DW 20v drill this past weekend on a remodel project, near the end of the day yesterday the battery was down by 1 bar (2 left), and it wasn't fully charged when I started Saturday.

    when they first came out I thought they were a gimick. As they got better and the batterys got better with more power I cant imagine not have them now.

    You are very correct that you must clean the surface but we do not use TSP on paneling, as it is mainly water with tsp added to it. We just wipe down with the cheapest paint thinner. Use one white cotton rag soaked with PT then dry with another clean white cotton rag. No sanding is necessary with the Cover Stain, this is why we use it, saves labor, material and no sanding dust to remove/deal with. Unfortunately if you are sensitive to chemicals this may not be an option for you.

    Also Nice drill!!! I am a tool junkie myself.

    Also you should really consider a cordless impact driver to match the drill. It is the one tool I can not live without as I use screws for most everything, no cam-out, (stripping out) on screw heads anymore.

    Thanks to all of you for sharing your knowledge and experience. Every step of this project is a learning curve. Y'all will keep me from making at least a few unnecessary mistakes along the way.

    There will be plenty of necessary mistakes. :lol3

    Scored myself a couple of these for the master bath today...
    image.jpeg

    While I won't need them for a while yet, they met my criteria...
    A) i really like it and it fits my plan
    B) on sale and not too expnsive
    C) in stock
    D) free shipping with Amazon prime

    If I see something that jumps out at me as the perfect thing and I'll be needing it in the not too distant future I'll get it and store it for a few weeks. What inevitably happens if you wait is, it's not in stock, it takes several weeks to restock, and the price goes up.

    Absolutely. Get material on site. For bulk items, I get more than I think I'll need. Extras can go back when I'm finished.

    Nothing worse than being ready to install, then having to wait on materials.
    Especially shitty to run short on things like studs, drywall, hardware, paint, adhesive or caulk.

    @TigerLilly , I second this. If your driving a lot of screws, it will save your wrists. Not to mention, you can slam in lag bolts real easy peasey.

    Well shit...now I have to go buy another tool! :happay

    I notice the trend now is away from nails and more towards what appear to be essentially deck screws. The cool thing is they come with T25 torx heads on them. Beats the hell out of phillips heads.

    Went to Lowes today to get some 2x4s to construct an alcove wall for the walk in shower. I had to go through at least thirty of them in the pile to find ten that were straight. :dirtdog

    Luckily I have a REAL TRUCK so they slid right into that 8' box. :1drink

    Ordered the walk in shower but it won't get delivered to the Home Depot in Las Cruces until next week. The rest of this week will be spent prepping the roof and rolling on the silicone sealer. Hopefully it won't be too damn hot. I'll post some pics.

    Also scored a very classy looking widespread faucet at Lowes for that sink I bought yesterday. Should go well with the square sink. I don't like really ornate stuff. Just clean elegant lines.

    "Went to Lowes today to get some 2x4s to construct an alcove wall for the walk in shower. I had to go through at least thirty of them in the pile to find ten that were straight. :dirtdog''

    Here in the south with high humidity, the straight ones will be warped by the time you get back to the job site. Don't worry about ones with a small bow, just stay away from twisted ones and, always grab a couple of extras.

    P.S. I'm really liking your build thread and hope to be able to do something like it, somewhere, sometime. The "home" thing is getting old, We just need a cozy base camp to go exploring from.

    I like to buy from the one of the local lumber co.s when I don't have to shop for materials at 8:00 p.m.
    Their rejects are straighter than the best that HDLowes has to offer.
