The microsite for the project house is on the development server and will be pushed live sometime soon. I'll post a link when it does.
We're going to release long- and short-form videos, magazine articles, and lots of photos over the next few [insert time period here].
The house is a 1950's ranch that we are rennovating one room at a time. The first project is converting the two-car garage into a warm shop where we can set up authors to work and shoot videos.
The first Project House article will be in the next issue of Fine Homebuilding magazine, which we just shipped to the printer (issue #224). It is on installing a new flanged window into an old wall (removing exterior trim, cutting back the siding, etc.).
Wiring a subpanel magazine article based on the video we shot (at Project House) with Brian Walo and released a while ago, here: http://www.finehomebuilding.com/pages/ho...
Airtight drywall installation video series and magazine article with Myron Ferguson. Here's a behind-the-scenes preview of the shooting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNacA0P5x...
Site-built cabinetry video series and magazine article with Mike Maines (Mike built us an awesome tablesaw outfeed table that anyone would be proud to have in their kitchen as an island).
Re-roofing a small shop video series and magazine article --including how not to do it (from existing conditions).
Carriage House Doors magazine article and short video by Justin Fink
Installing a keg-o-rator in a garage shop? Wishful thinking most likely.
These are all multi-part in-depth how to videos/articles. We will also release weekly wrap-up videos where Justin Fink and I ponder what we accomplished, what went right (and wrong), and what we hope to accomplish the following week.
After we finish the shop, we will tackle a bathroom remodel, kitchen remodel, deep energy retrofit, basement remodel, attic conversion, deck, master suite rennovation (small addition required), porch-to-sunroom conversion, and probably more.
