Chapter 2: Working On Floors, Walls & Ceilings


Most people today opt to do their own home improvement work and although such exercises require a certain amount of experience, the internet is a great source and encouragement for those who want to tackle these improvements themselves.

Helpful Hints

The following are some tips on how this can be done systematically and without causing too much stress:

• Floors – lay out the band boards by using the square, tape measure and pencil and then the task of measuring and marking can begin. Set measurements have to be followed to ensure the finished work is well placed and there are no unsightly overlaps. Cutting the floor joist according to the subtraction of 3 inches for the band boards should be done. The attaching of the joists to band boards should be done with the use of 16 penny nails. Then a bead of adhesive caulk could be applied down each joist using an instrument called a caulk gun. The subflooring should be laid out carefully, ensuring the long edge lays perpendicular to the way the studs run. The 8 penny nails should be spaced every 8 – 10 inches down each stud.
• Walls – very similar to the out laying of floors with the exception of remembering to mark out allowances for windows and doors and other walls that may tie in. Cutting wall studs, headers, jack studs, sill plates, crown or king studs, partition posts and corner posts, should be done to the required length. Measurements should also be done up the length of the wall and across the base of the wall. Erect the wall and attach it to the floor suing 16 penny nails through the bottom plate and into the floor joists.
• Ceilings – this is similar to the laying of the ceiling and requires the nailing of the ceiling joists at an angle to the wall without splitting the floor joist. Then attach the ceiling joist hangers to the ceiling joist and top plate of the walls ideally using joists hanger nails.

Chapter 3: Working On Windows, Doors & Lighting


The task of working on windows, the D.I.Y. style, requires a few tools and some simple step that are fairly easy to follow.

How To Do It Yourself

The first step would be to get the precise measurement noted down in order to purchase the material needed accordingly. Testing the fit of the new unit would be wise, before actually installing it permanently. A polyurethane sealant is applied around the existing window frame to ensure it is weather proof, then installation screws are used to fasten it into the solid wood frame. Put in the window, bottom first, and then tilt the top into place, then use thin wedges called shims to center the window.

As for doors, the first step involves measuring the doorway opening and then laying the door on sawhorses. Remember to provide in the measurements an inch or two for carpets to run under the door. Then, apply painter’s tape along the length of the marked out frame and on the plate of the saw, while cutting the door along the mark. Screw the hinges and the door together, then move it through the frame. Once the door is leveled out, nail through the frame to the wall then use low expansion foam to fill the spaces between the door and the wall which should effectively keep the door in place.

As for lighting, the first thing would be to disconnect the power supply which can be done by turning off the circuit breaker or removing the fuse. Remove any coverings and the light bulbs and then disconnect them from the electrical box by removing the screws. Observe the existing connections before replacing them with new ones so that the job can be simply mimicked. The 3 wires are white – negative, black – positive and the green or bare copper – ground wires. The black wire should be connected to the brass screw, the white to the silver screw and green to the green screw. Then remount the fixture and turn the power on.

Chapter 4: Working On Bathrooms, Kitchens & Basements


Working on D.I.Y. projects can be very rewarding if the individual is well equipped mentally and physically. Therefore, before actually attempting the jobs, one should be fully prepared in these areas.

Be Well Equipped!

There are several different areas that are to be considered when looking into remodeling a bathroom, and these would include bathroom accessories, bathroom countertops, bathroom designs, bathroom flooring and installations, bathroom planning and remodeling, bathroom sinks, bathroom toilet, bathroom walls, ceramic wall tiling, bathroom cabinets, bathroom decorations, bathroom fixtures, bathroom shower and a bathroom vanity. Each area requires a different set of actions and perhaps a variety of tools to get the job done efficiently and accurately. Therefore, some careful attention and knowledge should be exercised.

The D.I.Y. kitchen project also requires attention in several different areas and this would ideally include building the cabinets, designing the kitchen space and planning out where each item fits in such as the, kitchen countertops, kitchen plumbing, kitchen decor and kitchen safety items. However, there are simple smaller changes that can be made that may bring about a whole new pleasant look and feel. These may include, simply changing the counter tops, flooring, painting the kitchen or replacing the cabinets, all of which are a much cheaper alternative than actually attempting to change the whole kitchen.

Basements are a little tricky to attempt to do yourself, but none the less, it can still be done with attention given to certain important areas. Ensuring the project only begins when the area is completely dry is very important. Then checking the electrical coding and ensuring it is done accordingly should be the next step. Hammering nails in is ok to get the job done but using a tool called a shotgun is better for this kind of construction. Include furring in ½ inch measurements between the inner and outer walls. Include polyurethane sheeting to keep the moisture from seeping in and also consider insulation that is completely enclosed in a vapor barrier.
