I did all the doors & trim, crown molding, shadow boxes, stairs & railings, all the cabinets, shower doors & mantle which some might remember they have already seen! If you click on a pic, it will blow it up!

Thats some good work man. I wish I had the aptitude to be handy like that but I just can't get into that kind of work. All my white friends can't believe that I don't know how to fuck with any of that shits because I'm Dominican. Stereotyping ass mutherfuckers. LOL

below grade is a hard one bro...it can be done a few ways though! if you can dig away the dirt & let it dry...clean it good(no sand or dirt)geocel might work! http://www.geocelusa.com/php/oic/index.php that shit is really good stuff! i use it all the time for many different things!

lmfao! you are crazy bro...could be worse though...you could have went in a tight end & come out a wide receiver rolleyes.gif

I wish that was all that I needed...it's a frame house built on an old ass slab. I dug down pretty deep and poured concrete to try and create a barrier, but it was a pain in the ass and I never finished it. I probably have to float the floor...just putting it off I guess. haha
caneman
Is it a siding house? cause if it is, you might be able to pull the siding, & run some water & ice barrier down over the slab & up a foot past grade....hard to say without seeing it though...you have some pics? On that gelocel stuff, I used that to stop leaks on many different apps! Really amazing stuff & it's even paintable!

Looks like a good place to rob once people move in there.
Spyder
Yeah, it's a siding house...how would I seal the seams using that method?
caneman
I would have to look @ it one way or another! but peal & stick/water & ice barrier rocks...you would pull down the siding down to the sheating & run water & ice barrier 8 -12" down below the framing line & for good measure take that geoecel & run a nice beed on the framing(where it hits the slab & @! the bottom of the water & ice barrier)then back fill with dirt & it's fixed! Concrete from what I am understanding will not work....below grade is a major issue on many houses but my method works for sure as I did it on a job & charged them $750 & the next closest bid was over $2000 but they did pay for 2 Mexicans to dig the hole @ $10 per hour times 2! Hit me up if you need to talk about it!
Spyder
Sweet, thanks a lot.
