They're the same
There's a good chance that press board needs to be replaced. Not designed to get wet.In keeping with the "pics or it didn't happen', and the renovation pictures, I have an issue that I need some advice on.
We built our house eight years ago. We had a minor roof problem a week ago and had a roofer come by to look. It turns out that the roof issue isn't anything major, but while they were up there, the guy says "what's up with this?"
This part of the house is impossible to see from the ground, but the asshole builder forgot to put up brick.
The builder was a PITA. We held back the last payment until he fixed the punch list items. He got pissed, took us to arbitration and he lost - but that was eight years ago.
I'd never find that brick again, so I'm thinking that I get somebody to put up more tyvek and cement siding (hardiplank). You cannot see this from the ground, no matter where you stand - so I'm not annoyed with the home inspector.

Thoughts, rude comments?
Yeah, but there were no siding guys, because everything was supposed to be brick. They had a half pallet of bricks left over that we used to build two pillars at stairs, but now we know why it was left over.My guess is the brick guys thought the siding guys were doing it and vice versa
Kitchen is allmost done! Awaiting granite countertops and a dishwasher. Thanks for all the advice but we went for an LG ultimately.
Oh and one day... rid the 90s floors for something that fits our aesthetics more.

That came out good!
Not sure if this is in regard to the house question or the TP questionHardie board in a appropriate color pattern unless your guy has a scrap piece.
My helper has an 80% success rate at putting paper in the right way. Somewhat better than blind luck but not impressive.
* Professionally masked and sprayed, doors were sprayed in my garage. It is furniture grade hard paint so should NOT scratch and chip. The finish doesn't look perfect, as we did a ton of wood grain filler, sanding, prepping off all the old grease and stuff, but its very nice overall.That came out good!
Brush? Roller? Sprayed?
* Removed all doors, sprayed them down with APC/grease cleaner, hit them with my drill brush, followed up with a scotch pad, steam cleaned them for good measure and wiped dry. Allowed a week for any water that soaked into the now 'unprotected/varnished' wood to dry up prior to painting.What did you do for the prep work and use for the paint too?
* we masked off the inside of the cabinets - usually unless you get white cabinets new they are wood on the inside, and given they are full of shit all the time anyway, who gives a shit. It looks fine to me.And how far did you go with painting them? (I always thought it'd bug me if you still saw the oak, or whatever, on the inside of the cabinets.....if you know what I mean)
My wife has been bugging me to paint our cabinets.....which look identical to yours.
* yes, the original configuration had external hinge hardware which we filled and sanded, then drilled big pocket holes for new, internal, soft-close hardware.Did you have to fill in holes or anything, from the original hinges, when you flipped the doors?
(which looks better btw)
* yep! that is definitely on the table for us (No pun intended?) i think if we extend the counter about 6" over it wouldn't be much, but something. but even 6" renders that drawer pretty much inaccessible (like ~3-4" of access). which sucks cause we have so much shit and need every drawer we can get our grubby paws on. but yep its a heavy consideration! thanks!Also, a suggestion, if you're doing new or granite counter tops......do a over hang where you have the two stools at, so you have a place to sit at at the counter.
(we did that with ours)
We have a cabinet and drawer by the door wall, exactly like yours, and the access is "limited" to the drawer.....but you can still get to it.
