Can you legally do that without being licensed and insured, etc?

Yea it was a good move imo. We already had the house painted twice so it'll eventually pay for itself.

Here's another example: Our appliances cost $12 grand - in 2006. :lol:
Yep, been there too. We moved in and bought top of the line GE Arctica / Profile shit in white, then 18 months later replaced them all with almost the same units in Stainless, then GE quality struck and our $3400 fridge took a crap after 3 or 4 years... after a few more years on a couple replacement units and we spent another ~$9000 on appliances in 2016. This is all basic stuff too, I'm glad we did this now instead of in the next house that will have the massive cooktops and really high end stuff. The next stuff we get is going to last the rest of our lives, I refuse to buy shit that can't be easily repaired again.. most of the consumer appliances are considered disposable these days.

You know, growing up my family had appliances that lasted through the 70's and 80's w/o any issues..... Sure, some of them were avocado green, but they all worked like a champ and I believe they were used much more often and harder than the ones I've owned.
That was our thought, too. And I know what you mean about those old :scrooge: appliances lasting forever. I am convinced it's because they were so mechanically simple, without :fullretard: motherboards and :ludacris: electronic doo dads. I made sure our :waxer: range was as mechanically simple and electronic-free as possible to hopefully insure a long life. So far, 11.5 years in and it's working like a champ.

I told her I'll only do basic drywall/plaster repair, painting, and backsplash tile. Anything requiring wiring, plumbing, or moving appliances is a :nope: due to the above. Even though I can do that stuff, I DO NOT want to be held liable.

Other than the hood ducting, we didn't do anything else to our kitchen and apparently that's all the friend wants. We'll see. :iono:

You can :waxer: all you want, but I'm Pinshit level: Expert

Behold:

Century old barnwood :triggered:
$20 worth of plumbing supplies :triggered:
Place for plates to get nice and greasy :triggered:

While I'm still against the concept, I can admit this looks pretty cool. Going to add two more shelves above each for a total of 6. That'll come next week since the bottom shelves were just proof of concept.

Each pipe is connected to the wall via 4 toggle anchors with a claimed 158lb rating...158x4x2. They might outlast the house.
:gag:

Sorry bro not a fan. Glad you like it :doe:
I mean, practically it's :bs: and I think she's going to realize the error of her ways quickly.

But for what it is, I think it turned out decent. It's also been a lot of effort so at this point I'm just happy with whatever I think.

Got the fridge in...and the old fridge went to another friend. Their house has TINY doors, so we had to remove the doors on our (their new) fridge and then the same on their old. I moved a total of 4 fridges today.

:gag: :overit:

The GE slate appliances look awesome together. Really ties the kitchen together nicely.

I cannot, and will not, compete with you on pinshit shit.

5/7 looks.
0/7 functionality.
The crazy thing, we might have a paying gig coming up from this.

Wife had a friend come over and ask if we'd consider upgrading her kitchen in a similar manner if she paid us.
Wife just sent her pictures of the shelves and friend responded "when can you start?"

No idea what to charge. We're going to talk it over. Getting paid to pinshit seems :notsure: but equally :fuckyeah: This is easy for us but :nope: for many others.
I want to go on record as saying this is an absolutely HORRIBLE IDEA. Where do we start?

1. You're fucking telling me you don't have enough of this shit to do at your own house and now you want to be an unlicensed contractor for a WOMAN? Get a life! Go camping. Walk your dog. Drink at Tony's. Get drunk and screw. ANYTHING.
2. WOMAN was in caps because she LOVES your work now but something goes awry and
a. What is already probably bro-deal pricing now becomes even more contentious and she won't want to pay you at all. Result? Friendship flushed.
b. Do you really want to be subject to the arbitrary whims of ANOTHER WOMAN? That's insanity. Are you Mormon Bro? Is one not enough?
3. Wow, you both have day jobs and plenty of pinshit at home. How about your friend GO HIRE A LICENSED CONTRACTOR TO FIX HER HOUSE IF SHE CAN'T DO IT HERSELF?

I urge you to rethink this.

Yea, we'll see. She's not really MY friend, and I don't make any design decisions, I just do the work.

Realistically, we have too much pinshitting to do around our own house, let alone someone else's. I'd be surprised if it materializes, but :iono:

I want to make sure the lighting changes to the kitchen are all sorted prior to the guys coming to do my reno so aside from clearing out most of the main level floor I ditched the old track light in the kitchen for three pot lights and two pendant lights. The only annoying part is that I needed to run it all on the single switch to avoid ripping the whole place apart. It should make for a nice bright space. I'll probably go with a dimmer switch and dimmable led pots and squirrel cage led Edison bulbs. I love that the 2nd level floor joists worked in my favor and minimal ceiling damage occurred to make it all happen, I literally only needed to cut one 4" hole right where the existing wiring passed by the pendant holes. :fuckyeah: ImageImage

Short of a few large items, the first floor has been totally emptied out. Everything except a few chairs, a kitchen table, ottoman, tv and a hand full of dishes will be left after tonight. It felt great to throw away huge amounts of crap we don't use. The kitchen alone takes up 7-8 boxes snd probably an entire garbage bag or two of stuff getting thrown out.
