Podcast Episode 103 — Cabinets, Windows, and Mold
JLC Live, SIPs drawbacks, timber-framed structures, and remediation.
In this episode, Justin and Rob run the show on their own, because Brian is on the road shooting video and researching articles.
Rob mentions that FHB will be at the JLC Live event in Rhode Island, March 22-24. We’ll have more on that soon. Justin will be running an event there on March 23. And there will be one or two podcasts live from the show.
Rob talks about fitting a built-in between two walls, in a nook where he previously added an interior window. Justin talks about a cabinet project of his own. That leads to talk of kitchen cabinets, finishes, and hardware. Here’s a photo of that project Justin mentioned:
Listener Adam is still working on his basement remodel. He ordered a window that’s too big for his rough opening. Here are the photos he sent us:
Listener Chris found mold when he was doing a remodel. Here are his photos:
