Discover hardcorerenos's Instagram The underpinning and benching began at the #127Project this week and @dgrconcreteforming is doing an amazing job.
If anyone has ever gone through an underpinning renovation then you will know its loud, messy and worth it.
Turning the current 6’6” basement into a 8’6” basement and that’s a huge difference and worth it.  I respect a company like DGR Concrete Forming because they are building a team not an individual.  This has been one major detail for me since Hardcore Renos took off. Every time I see DGR crew on site, I watch, I listen, I understand how they are a team and not an individual.  That’s incredibly important in this great industry. I truly feel DGR Concrete Forming are a R.O.C. Rockstars Of Construction. Stay classy guys.  See you on Monday for the first full week and the first pour. Amazing stuff.  #renovator #remodeller #designer #customhome #woodworking #kitchen #finishcarpenter #benjaminmoore #plumbing #contractor #electrical #crownmoulding #trimcarpentry #hardwood #interior #outdoors #Hilti #bosch #bathroom #spa #tradesperson #flipping #generalcontractor #demolition #concrete #foundation #construction 1651008439054306896_348394521

This wasn’t an easy roof with so much beaten up slate to remove and the pitch.  Not to mention the damage over the years and the amount of roof band aids over the decades. Skyluxe is the roofing crew you want to work for and hire.  If you’re serious about being a roofer learn from the Best.

Here we have the curved wall in the master bedroom at the #127Project.
Working with @thermorydesign @thermoryUSA scott pine and ash deck boards and trying a few new ideas.
I never liked those tiny off cuts or sample pieces, I rather build a bigger section right where I am suggesting it should be.
This way clients can better visualize the idea, morning, noon and at night.  Didn’t take long to do this. #renovator #remodeller #designer #customhome #woodworking #kitchen #finishcarpenter #benjaminmoore #plumbing #contractor #electrical #crownmoulding #trimcarpentry #hardwood #interior #outdoors #Hilti #bosch #bathroom #spa #tradesperson #flipping #generalcontractor #demolition #concrete #foundation #construction 1649594525703896919_348394521

Discover hardcorerenos's Instagram More than a few things going on in this image.
Let’s talk about Building Permits.

First off, I’m proud of the building permits attached to any renovation of mine.
I print them as large as 11X17 and laminate them to last the entire reno.

I currently have 6 permits on the #127Project, we started in late May 2017.
We have 4 more revision permits coming our way and soon to be added to this window.

I have always been good about staying on top of all of the paperwork attached to any project.
For most of us, its easy to just build it but we have to remember to properly close a permit, you need to close what was built.

Lastly, have a look at the top row, the far right permit, the new addition to the bunch.
That is the approved building permit for underpinning 3 walls and benching the party wall.
The neighbour…what can I say about the neighbour?
They didn’t want to work with us, they didn’t want to discuss options. 
Nothing but their way.
They told us what was gonna happen and it wasn’t gonna be underpinning.
Absolutely not, I heard that statement more than a few times.
They actually yelled at me more than once and told me to repeat what they said.
I never did repeat their words.
I never raised my voice.
I never became a prick.
I never expressed any sign of defeat.

Have another look at that APPROVED UNDERPINNING PERMIT for the #127Project

Be neighbourly, just be neighbourly and at least discuss options.
Don’t ever tell a contractor who cares about this industry, who has kept a safe and clean job site, who has been neighbourly with others,  who respects tradespeople and the career they have chosen, who works with skilled and talented people, never tell a GC what to do when you don’t know Jack Shit about construction. 
Have another look at that APPROVED UNDERPINNING PERMIT…neighbour.
Push some, a some will push back.

@dgrconcreteforming will be handling the underpinning and they are one of the best in the business.
Watch for the posts as this will be hard work, cold, wet, muddy and fun filled days with plenty of expressos.
Stay for the all of the neighbourly love yet to be expressed on site.
I encourage everyone to grab a bag of popcorn, I have mine. 1649287661002934902_348394521

Discover hardcorerenos's Instagram Meanwhile, back at that vent pipe that we had to leave inside the 2nd floor bathroom.
Hanging about 8” down from the ceiling and 5” out from the vanity wall.
I was messing around with a curve bulkhead and then Jack from @paynecontracting came up with the double cove idea you see here.
Basically it’s 2 end coves that have a half circle in the middle and I think it hides the vent pipe.
I place the flexible @schlutersystemsna kerdi to show to potential behind this bulkhead.
The backsplash mosaics would run up the wall and along this curve detail and along the ceiling.
There is an image here of a single cove but felling it could be too big for the corner.

Discover hardcorerenos's Instagram Early on during the demo stage I came up with the idea of a Juliet balcony off the kitchen.
Here is the 8 foot tall, 3 foot wide opening that will have a double door swing in and we will be getting a wrought iron railing, custom made for the exterior.
Imagine those spring, summer, and fall mornings and evenings where the homeowners open up these doors and experience the outdoors, indoors.  How can you not think construction is romantic. 
For now, it’s a view of the side of my van but that view will quickly change in the next few months. @soprema_entreprises @sopremacanada #renovator #designer #HDBrafasco #countertop #espresso #shed #HomeDepot #finishcarpenter #custombuilt #architect #woodworking #construction #framing #painter #original #featurewall #victorian #roofing #contractor #powertools #diablo #championgenerators #furniture #bathroom #mosaictile #skilledtrades #storytelling #decks #whatsmystory 1645685743076714057_348394521

3 inspections, framing, plumbing and HVAC.
We passed all 3, no issues at all.
Our inspector spent close to 2 hours on site, walking through each department beginning with plumbing.
We had nothing to hide and all of us are very proud of the work on the #127Project
All of paperwork is in order, we are almost all caught up with revisions regarding paperwork.
A few compliments from our down to earth inspector, thank you Sir.

What a great day to walk through the home with Paul from Turbo Plumbing, go through 33 pages of HVAC breakdown and discuss structural and the many changes to structural.
Do a great job and have nothing to hide and inspections will always go smoothly.

Discover hardcorerenos's Instagram We have the I Beam over the new garage door opening resting on a steel plate, need to cut the ends of the steel plate.
Decided to use a 12" metal @diablo_tools blade to make quick work of the cutting the 1/2" thick 8" long steel.
I didn't try hard to cut things, just let the blade do its thing and it took just over 2:30 minutes to to cut clean through. #renovator #designer #HDBrafasco #countertop #espresso #shed #HomeDepot #finishcarpenter #custombuilt #architect #woodworking #construction #framing #painter #original #featurewall #victorian #roofing #contractor #powertools #diablo #championgenerators #furniture #bathroom #mosaictile #skilledtrades #storytelling #decks #whatsmystory 1642774685412265729_348394521

Discover hardcorerenos's Instagram With the beginning of the finishing around the corner we are still considering tile selects and here is a mosaic for the girls bathroom.
It is capped with brushed aluminium over ceramic in two tones and love to install this as the backsplash for the double sinks.
Not just a section but the entire wall with the recessed medicine cabinets, sconces and entry door breaking up the pattern.
Found this tile @ciot.toronto @ciot1950 also thinking about a darker grout, possibly a slate tone to add a pop to the shine of the metal. #renovator #designer #HDBrafasco #countertop #espresso #shed #HomeDepot #finishcarpenter #custombuilt #architect #woodworking #construction #framing #painter #original #featurewall #victorian #roofing #contractor #powertools #diablo #championgenerators #furniture #bathroom #mosaictile #skilledtrades #storytelling #decks #whatsmystory 1641515366792345398_348394521

Discover hardcorerenos's Instagram With the new sunroom we did things traditionally by installing the membrane around the opening and tying it into the exterior @bp.canada #excelboard things that #BlueGreenGroup taught me. 
As for the 127 year old double brick we doing things a little differently.
Applying primer on the back edge of the exterior brick and over the interior brick continuing to the new stud framing and finishing on the face of the interior framing.
From there we install the @sopremacanada  @soprema_entreprises membrane and that will be connected to the interior VP membrane completing our new building envelope with the old structure.
We doing this to every single opening and this will add to our overall efficiency of the new home.  A few more details the guys at Blue Green Group taught me. 
Really excited about testing this home, up next pre drywall and then the final once everything is complete.  We have goals in mind and we want to hit every single one. #renovator #designer #espresso #shed #HomeDepot #finishcarpenter #custombuilt #architect #woodworking #construction #framing #painter #original #featurewall #victorian #roofing #contractor #powertools #diablo #championgenerators #furniture #bathroom #mosaictile #skilledtrades #storytelling #decks #whatsmystory 1640830603874070566_348394521

Discover hardcorerenos's Instagram A few shots of me cutting the barrel arched 2X12's.
Check out the end of the video where Jack from @paynecontracting and I install each one with a custom cut around the duct work, vent pipes and more.
As much as I love mechanical, I love it more when I can hide it with something creative.
Bulkheads are not creative.  @diablo_tools @boschtoolscanada @boschtoolsna @mechanix_wear #renovator #designer #HDBrafasco #countertop #espresso #shed #HomeDepot #finishcarpenter #custombuilt #architect #woodworking #construction #framing #painter #original #featurewall #victorian #roofing #contractor #powertools #diablo #championgenerators #furniture #bathroom #mosaictile #skilledtrades #storytelling #decks #whatsmystory 1640650385158931786_348394521
