209My cabin is located in south-central Alaska. I'm trying to find a way, and different ideas and designs, to enclose the undercarriage of the cabin. Also to have a swing-door type so I can drive my snowmobile in. If you've got any ideas, I'd appreciate it.
210This is our dining room, and my project is to put a door where the window is. Once, Ryan said 'You can always put a window where a door was, but you can't always put a door where a window was.' So, I'd like your opinion on, how do I make that a door?
210I'm working on a ceiling getting off 500 glue dots. The floor in here is a little bit roughed up, just wondering how I should fix it?
211The question I have is white-washing, painting, or leaving it alone. It's a big debate in our house. We've been sanding logs and clear-coating them, and we're still trying to brighten the cabin up a little more. We're not sure if we should paint in-between these logs (on the ceiling) or whitewash to brighten, and the stairwell which is the front entrance should be white-washed, and if we did white-wash, would we need to sand it down first because the upstairs is new wood and was recently replaced.
212I am looking for some suggestions on repairing a rotted rim joist, sill plate, and subfloor on the gable end of my 700 sq. ft. cottage. The rotted area is on the gable end of the cottage. I am concerned about supporting the structure which is probably being held toether over the rotted area by the wooden siding. The former owner apparently cut away a large part of the rim joist for some unknown reason where a masonry porch used to be. I've seen many understuctures that were rotted and repaired on the show, and thought you might have a quick suggestion.
213We have an issue with ice buildup directly over our front steps. It's at a junction where an addition was made to the original 1800s house in the 1970s. About 5 years ago we had the entire house reroofed, and at the same time increased the insulation in the attic. The interior walls of the house where the build-up is have also been insulated. We are at a loss as to why this happens. We figured you may have some ideas as you experience the same types of weather we do in central New York.
214I have a home in Pennsylvania. What is the best way to insulate the floors?
214Saw an episode where you sprayfoamed and covered pine tongue-and-groove. Trying to do it, but read it needs a fire retardant. Is the pine ok?
214I volunteer at a wildlife sanctuary in Florida, and I want to build a tortoise cabin. Bumble is a three-footed red-footed tortoise. He lost one foot in a dog attack. It doesn't get very cold here, but I'm trying to incorporate a heated floor for him so he's comfy in the winter. I'd love to hear if you have some ideas for Bumble.
215We have a concrete pad that is half under a screen porch and half under a deck. The part that's under a deck consistently gets green mold on it, and we pressure wash it all the time to try to get rid of it. Is there anything else we can do?
216My street is between a saltwater tidal marsh on one side, and a beach at the end of the street. My window issue is escalating, and I'm wondering DIY or go get a pro, and PVC or pressure-treated? I'm leaning toward PVC, but if I do it myself, how?
216South central Alaska, I have a 24' x 24' addition to the house, I have 4-by-12s on a helical pier system, I have plumbing and sanitary sewer I'm going to run underneath it, how do I keep it from freezing? I've got about a 42-inch freeze depth here.
217Watching your show we have seen you use ClipStone behind a woodstove, and was wondering how you frame out the thimble woodstove chimney, and prepare it for the ClipStone?
217We are remodeling a cabin in northern Minnesota. The ceiling is going to be vaulted. There is a free-standing brick fireplace in the middle of the cabin. There is nice brick in the cabin and on the roof. The area betwwen the current ceiling and the roof is just cement block. What can we do to cover the cement block so it looks nice? The cabin was built in 1965, so we won't be able to match with a brick veneer.
217My daughter's house is about 100 years old, and the indoor flight of stairs squek unbelievably. Is there any way to fix this?
218I'm not the handiest person in the world. We have a wooden table in our kitchen [that] we eat all our meals on. It is about 20 years old. We love it, but the table surface looks old and dry. How can I spruce up our beloved table?
218I am redoing my laundry room. I want to keep the ceiling exposed with the rafters showing, but I want the walls sealed between the rafters. My question is, how can I do this easily and imexpensively?
218My uncle built my house just before WWII, stick-built with a lot of recycled fir and pine. He made a Z-back door that now has rotted at the bottom. I would like to repair rather than replace it. Any advice or tricks of the trade to repair the door?
219My house was built in 1945. My question is, how difficult is it to repair or replace the soffit and fascia board around the house? Does it all need to be replaced, or can I replace some of it? How do I tell?
220We recently bought a small camp in Casco, Maine, that needs a jacking and leveling due to many years of frost-heaving. I've watched all of your episodes over the years, and you frequently show the jacking and leveling process, but can you please explain how you install the piers for the foundation? I've seen the cement pads that you use, but how do you prepare the ground to accept them?
220We recently purchased a lakefront cabin in Pennsylvania. It is a rustic seasonal camp which currently has no running water. What is the best way for us to get water from the lake to use for things like flushing toilets and taking showers? Are there purification systems available that would make the water safe to drink?
221We have recently demoed our kitchen and dining room. The kitchen is close to its completion. We have chosen to use a natural brick backsplash in the kitchen area. What do you suggest that can be used to protect the brick and not be too glossy? We are also thinking that people may want to paint or do German schmear in the future, so we would love something that may work for all future applications.
221Here are some pictures of the stained cedar claps on our camp located on Clearwater. Immense mold on the north side of the house. Should I have the house re-sided, or can someone clean it and restain?
221I have that fake wood decking, both the front and back stairs are made out of it. The stuff gets so hot it'll fry your feet, and during a slight rain the stuff becomes slick as ice. I've seen many a mailman go down. I've tried mixing some sand into some poly and putting a coat on, and that worked for a season. I also bought some anti-skid tape, and that was a complete fail. Any ideas to make the steps a little safer?
222I had a workshop for my wife built for her custom dollhouses and stained glass about 15 years ago. We questioned the gravel pad it was built on but was told it would work. Within the first few months the foundation sank on the back-right side, and as a result the front doors would not shut. We called the company that sold it to me and the did a series of band-aid fixes, and went as far as to call the original builders who were contracted out to fix the problem. The builders came out and jacked up the shed on the front-left corner. We were able to shut the front doors for about 6 months before it got worse. We called the contractors to look at the issue, and they could not figure it out. We have an idea that includes bottle jacks, pylons, and steel beams after I put the bricks from the first level corner, but not sure if this is the best approach, thinking that it might damage walls or windows.
223I have a cabin in the Adirondacks that currently does not have running water. I would like to put in a system that would pull water from the lake. Do you have any recommendations on the best way to do this? We would like to use it for showers, toilets, and the kitchen. We are not expecting to use it for drinking.
223I want to build a small greenhouse in my yeard, but due to the price of lumber I'm looking for some ideas incorporating used or less-expensive materials, not lumber. Any ideas?
301I live in upper New Hampshire, and have an unheated covered deck with 3/4" plywood floor, not pressure-treated. We enclosed the area to create a very nice porch, and want to finish the floor. The plywood is in good shape, but was never sealed above or below. When the weather is damp, the floor creaks as you walk on it. Then, when it's dry, there is no noise. The plywood is glued and screwed down. My question is, should we seal or paint the exposed floor and plywood under the decking, before putting in a floor?
301I have a circa 1964 camp on Cobbossee in Litchfield, Maine. Several years ago I had insulation blown into the walls, attic, and underneath the camp, which is on pillars and posts. The underneath portion is enclosed in plastic. I have been told by several Mainers that this is not a good idea. Your thoughts?

121I've noticed that you use a lot of 6 inch and 8 inch shiplap boards on the interior of many of the cabins that you save. My question is, how do you complete the corner on the horizontal shiplap. Do you butt-end them together in the corner, or cut a 45-degree angle and put them together in the corner?
121I saw one of your episodes Ryan made a comment about sprayng ployurethane on white pine. I have a cabin that I'm building, and the interior is completely 1 x 10 TNG white knotty pine. I would like to keep it natural and light like it is now. Everyone sprays lacquer on this type of interior around here, and after a year it will turn a dark orange color. What would you recommend to keep the original, natural look. I used water-based polyurethane in the past on other white pine, and it doesn't seem to turn the orange color with age. I used foam brushes to put it on. Can you spray water-based polyurethane?

212We recently bought a 117-year-old home, and the living area is all original wood. It is what I describe as 'old library floors.' I love them but the problem is, I don't know what to clean the old grime off with. I really don't want to sand them because it's a beautiful color. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
212We have a camp in Winthrop and it needs a new roof. It is a 3-season camp with insulation in the walls and roof, but not underneath. Would it be a bad idea to put a metal roof on it, as I have heard you talk about problems with humidity build-up. Would sprayfoam insulation under the cabin help?
213With all the rot caused by water on wooden structures, why don't you use guttering?
215What kind of screws do you use in the projects?
216My wife and I are renovating our camp near Kane, Pennsylvania. We've installed pine shiplap in two rooms, and like the whitewash look. Would you describe the process you use to apply whitewash, and the products you prefer?
216I'm always amazed watching how you raise cabins out of dirt and reset them on concrete cookies with new supporting structures. I've not been able to find these concrete cookies. I was wondering if you could suggest a different way to support the framing for an 8' x 10' building? The structure will be under 120 square feet so I don't need a permit. I want to make sure I have a solid base for the building. Any ideas would be helpful.
217I see that you use sprayfoam insulation. I'm curious how you would replace or repair an electrical wire as it is stuck in the insulation?
