  2. Add a piece of flashing with some rubber on one side of the brown outer door to form a seal when it rains. Also just add outdoor caulk everywhere you can to fill gaps and keep water out. Those areas are just unfortunately prone to getting moisture and water in them, but you are staying on top of it, should be good for a while!

  3. You are so amazing. I just love your videos. And I do thank you very very much for not having all that annoying music that a lot of people add to their videos. I don't care for the music so whenever I come across one that's just pure content authenticity and guts, I like to thank the YouTuber who created something so awesome. ๐ŸŽ < Apple for the teacher ๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. Iโ€™m just starting a summer-long project to paint the exterior of my home. Itโ€™s really old and the wood siding and windows will need a ton of prep. And my amazing enclosed porch has 24, 18 pane windows, many of which need to be re-glazed. I clicked on this immediately as I knew it would be good motivation for messy jobs. Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. Looks like your stringers must be made of metal now that I watched this closer. Iโ€™d still replace the treads with treated lumber and place a fan back in there behind the treads on the floor. Iโ€™d do something to cause an air flow to dry up the moisture. Fans work well. Usually.

  10. Next time it rots out, replace the stringers and treads with treated lumber and space the stringers away from the side walls a few inches to keep from wicking moisture from the walls. You should also place a cheap 12โ€ or smaller fan in the stairwell, always running, somewhere for air circulation to dry up the moisture.

  16. That seems to be designed to attract leaks. Seems like water will keep coming in through the top unless you keep the tarp on it. Yikes ๐Ÿ˜ฑ looks great though! My intimating projects are painting the bathroom tile and redoing my old rotting deck.
