    Will you be gutting the walls as well or just the ceiling?

    Yeah, probably the walls too. Pretty dated panelling and the insulation likely got wet. Going to take out everything but the walls around the stage. Might take the raised stage out too and make it all one level. All the vapor barrier and any insulation that got wet. Then we can start from a clean(ish) slate. We figure even if we sell, it’s worth more gutted with clean new insulation and vapor barrier on the walls and ceiling than with the obvious staining from leaks.

    I got the replacement outer frames for the windows done this evening. That was pretty sketchy as the reclaimed PT wood I used had rusted nails in one edge. Thankfully I didn’t hit any, but it did reduce the yeild I got from the wood.

    Probably wise choice to strip everything to the bare bones. By removing stage it all depends what the plan will be going forward. There is so many things the space could be used for.

    Got all the wood in for the window frames (well, all except 1 piece, but that will get done today). Did some of the epoxy fill. I soaked fibreglass insulation for the verticle bits and it worked a treat! Made is so easy to get the sides/corners done. I still have a couple of pours to do on them over the next few days, but the difficult challenges have been met and overcome.

    How many windows did you have to do? At first I was under the impression you only had one to do.

    How many windows did you have to do?

    About 5 of them to repair. 11 of them all together to get them foamed and caulked properly and painted.

    That’s an interesting tip. I have already mixed fiberglass fibers typically used in concrete with epoxy to make it more “firm” for vertical surfaces and keeps it from running away from flat surface repairs

    Been installing flooring and baseboard…and painting. Also installing new hardware on doors and bathroom. That will be more of this weekend’s project list.

    Good luck Greg! I burned a bunch of brush from a tree I had cut down.

    Interesting technique. Do you have any pictures to share?

    I do quite a bit of epoxy wood restoration and repairs, and have used wood epoxy products from System 3, The Rot Doctor, Abraton, as well as fiberglass epoxy products and steel epoxy products.

    One of the challenges I face is vertical surfaces and overhead repairs that tend to “slump” over especially when it’s thicker, and I do not have time to do a 1/8″ layer every day to build up a 1″ layer.

    A typical application like a rotted door heel, broken door lock strike hole, and badly damaged termite infested rafter heels or subfascia.

    My current technique involves using either “structural epoxy putty” that can be molded and keep it’s form. This works well but it means I have to keep three epoxy products (A) liquid epoxy for pouring and filling crevices (B) epoxy paste that is like peanut butter texture but will slump on overhead and vertical surfaces (c) epoxy putty that works like play dough and can be molded.

    I sometimes will build a form for pouring liquid epoxy because that will yield the strongest repair. Typically I use thin 1/8″ plywood to make a temp form wrapped in duct tape on the inside once I secured the form I caulk all sides then pour my liquid epoxy. Boy if you have a small leak you are in deep trouble there is no good way to stop it and the waste is expensive.

    If the patch is very thick I tend to cut a piece of slightly smaller wood in the same rough shape as a fill material secured with screws or nails to reduce the epoxy used. This structural epoxy is expensive.

    I am very curious of your fiberglass soaking approach.

    Sounds like you did pretty good at your yard sale. I thought you sold all your tools at your spring yard sale?

    Also picked up a box of furnace filters for our central furnace ,

    Where do you buy your filters?

    Since I am new to having a furnace I need keep some filters around. I was lucky the previous home owner left us with some extra filters. My new furnace takes a different size filter. I did buy a few filters to have on hand after we had the new furnace installed .
