Re: The Home Improvement Thread

ive learned 2 things with my home improvement adventures . .

1 - it is really hard fixing things with one hand but i am getting better and better each time

2- caulk is very hard to get to look smooth, is a pain to get out of brick and you should use caulk rope if you have to cover a gap bigger than 1/4 inch

3- the caulk jokes are not appreciated by the female race. they have a very low tolerance to "hon, can you help with this caulk", "while i got my caulk out, you got any holes you need me for?", insert any generic caulk joke.

4- i apologize for this post

Re: The Home Improvement Thread

SS - ice cold can of beer, preferably without paint chips floating in it. i just cannot sacrifice the beer, i dont even really drink it, i pretty much just hold it and wish i had 2 hands ... im a really stubborn idiot

Mred - i tried one of those, i tried a damp finger, i tried the foaming insulation then tried to sand paper it down.

i think my real problem was i was trying to use acrylic caulk around my entire front door frame which had an exposed gap going all the way around varying from 1/2 to 2 inches wide and very deep . . .
