Home Renovation and Maintenance in the Fall

Written by , Posted in Building and Construction

“By doing a little preventative maintenance now, you can prevent minor problems from escalating into a major headache in the spring,” Felton said. “Minor repairs done now can prevent air and moisture penetration from attacking the structural integrity of your home down the road,” he added. Cleaning the eavestroughs in the fall, for example, can prevent ice damming in the winter, where moisture is forced up under the roof’s shingles during winter’s freeze-thaw cycles. “Our roofing contractors are always busy in the spring, fixing damage and leaks that have occurred because of ice damming,” Felton added. Here are some home maintenance jobs that should be on a homeowner’s winterizing checklist: ” Clean eavestroughs after the last leaves have fallen. Run a garden hose and check that they are draining properly and that downspouts are operating and directed away from the home’s foundation walls. Check for leaking or damaged gutters, downspouts and hangers. Remove rust and patch the gutters with roofing cement. Caulk leaking seams and make sure pop rivets are secure. ” Check the roof for trouble signs such as broken or missing shingles, cracked, buckling or curling shingles, or bare spots where the granular coating has worn off. Check […]

The Better Decking Material – Composite Wood Or Organic Wood?

Written by , Posted in Building and Construction

Proper deck construction takes solid planning.  Important to that planning process is the decision between organic and composite decking material.  Once the material of choice, natural wood is being pushed aside by composite materials that offer lower maintenance and higher durability.  Gone are the days of plastic looking composite decks.  Technology has improved greatly, and the composite materials now in use rival real wood in appearance so much that most people cannot tell the difference between the two.   The Pros And Cons Of Organic Wood   Real wood is still the most commonly chosen material for decking.  It is the most economical choice for installation and will last for decades if maintained properly.  Most decks are made from pressure treated Southern yellow pine.  This is one of the least expensive of wood decking materials.  The pressure treating process makes the wood resistant to weather, water, and insect damage.  Other types of wood like redwood and cedar do not need to be pressure treated because of the natural preservatives they contain.   The average price of materials and labor for Southern yellow pine is $15 per square foot.  For higher end wood materials like cedar and redwood, the average price […]

Falling Planting On The Sunnyside Lane Hobby Farm

Written by , Posted in Building and Construction, Green Living

This week we have been clearing a small patch for planting our winter greens garden.  We have found that the soil here has a lot of red clay in it.  I am gonna try to grow some greens this winter, but it is going to need some dressing up to continue to grow. We will be ready for the spring planting season as we will be planting more during that time of year. When we plant our garden it is for our household, our other grown children and our aviary. We try to make a few trips to the local flea market to make a few extra bucks to assist in purchasing supplies for ourselves and the farm. For now, we have decided to create a compost bin, well actually several, to help with the spring gardening. In order to speed things a little bit, we have to do some planning. One thing is the five of us will not have that much kitchen waste over the spring for a 2 acre garden. How are we gonna to be ready for the spring? A way we have decided that works for us is to explore the local produce markets to […]

The Saturday House

Written by , Posted in Building and Construction, Uncategorized

With both Robert and Patsy working two jobs, to accomplish a decent lifestyle for them and their two children, they often managed to get Saturdays off at the same time. Robert and Patsy came from large families and were born to Sharecroppers. Robert’s father had died when he was only 16 years old leaving behind his disabled wife with three children still living at home. Robert was the oldest of these three. They had two sisters who were married and living with their husbands. There were two older brothers who had also left home when they married.

Gardening In Harmony with Nature

Written by , Posted in Building and Construction, Foods, green, History, Home and Garden, sustainable living

Root cellars are for keeping food supplies at a low temperature and steady humidity. They keep food from freezing during the winter and keep food cool during the summer months to prevent spoilage. An earthly-friendly, root cellar is the natural choice for the homesteader, whether or not you’re, “on the grid” There are several types of root cellar and different ways in which to construct one. There’s the Hatch Cellar, Hillside Cellar and the Above Ground Cellar. The Hatch Cellar usually consists of a large hole dug into the ground then lined with rocks. The floor is left in its innate state, just plain dirt. Beams and plywood sheets are securely laid over the hole, with a hatch door incorporated into the ceiling/floor, along with the installation of a ladder for safe and easy access. A shed is then built over the top of the cellar, to provide maximum shelter for the storage. The Hillside Cellar is dug out of a hillside, lined with rocks, and then a plywood ceiling is attached to overhead support beams. This type of storage Cellar has a regular insulted door to walk through. An above Ground type of cold storage can be built in […]
