Siding Removal Shows Just How Bad This Is | Budget Mobile Home Remodel #14

hey everybody welcome back to the
homestead the video you're about to watch was shot two days ago I'm shooting
this now as a precursor before we post that video to go live what we found in
the video you're about to see prompted us to drop a hefty chunk of change for
us on something that's going to improve the quality of our home say hello to my
filtrates friend got a hepa air filter set that down I hit the camera a
previous take so have a hepa air filter we got from Lowe's that we're going to
stick in the bedroom it's rated and designed to filter out and purify the
year so that's what we hope it does all right guys
without further ado here's the video that you all are probably dying to see
it's a doozy well welcome back it's the next day and we're where we have been
for a while we just got back from Lowe's and we've
picked up two different things to help address our water leak issues first is
some waterproof flashing tape this is probably more ideal for windows and
doors but it's super sticky tape then we'll try and repair the gutters with
and fill in any kind of holes in the siding um we have plans to address and
fix the exterior of our home it's just not right now so this is a patch
literally and we'll fix it later in the future also what we're there we saw some
of this rubber flex spray on the ceiling stuff no clue if it's gonna work but
we'll give it a shot too and probably try this on the gutter because it's
black so we don't want to spray it on any other non dark areas but I'm going
to get the ladder and go outside and we'll address that first so we're
outside of the house now this is the other side of the wall where the kitchen
is and this is where we came yesterday and notice that it was leaking we think
there's probably this is like a hole in a divot or think that's what's funneling
water in and under the house but I'm gonna start pulling some of this off to
kind of investigate and find out a little bit more all right I almost need this give us
enough room to get in here and see what's going on okay yeah so that's
probably what's causing the water leak because it does go under this rim joist
and that's the issue that's where it was leaking I'm going to pull this next
section off to make sure there's no similar issues here and then I'm going
to fix this while it's full that looks good hello kitchen or dining room I guess but
yeah yeah so this is exactly the spaces that we pulled insulation out last night
so all right do a little cleanup work and take work and see you guys in just a
second this is where all the water was funneling in and it's really bent out of
shape so I'm trying to bend it back to keep the water from funneling in so
we're a little bit further down on the wall because we want to see what this
looks like further down and there's also a wasp nest in there somewhere and we're
thinking if it's an epic huge wasp nest you might want to see it because we want
to see it let's hope I don't get stung at least you're not allergic that was one that just fell out that was
dead I tried to spray this nest at one time I don't know if I got it though go
get her dead well are you sure I'm sure look alive well yeah I did all right
they just said that they can't move I know that was definitely dead whoo chill
bumps all right we'll move truth take this siding off I'll see what's going on let's see it there's half of it there's
the other half and oh my gosh look at our bedroom wall Oh how's apply all
right this is dry this is old rot so that's good that means fixed electrical
fire waiting to happen well at least the wasp nest is dead any other comments I can understand why
it's in use at this point you pre-much like let's just tear it all apart and
start anew but we can't do that we don't have that luxury
so it's gonna fight our desire to do that we're gonna have to just put it
back as best we can for right now knowing that we will fix this in the
future we just can't do it right now wind out of the workshop and dug around
spare parts and this isn't what you want to use this is what I found to use as a
replacement nail plate for this wire like we said earlier this will get
addressed just not today so this is a fixed temporary fix but
this will allow me to put this wire back up in place and hold it safely and be
pretty good of course of course of course the battery's dead why wouldn't
it be it's just like two feet that way just in the wrong direction hey Hill yeah by moving it down and I don't like
the wire resting on the edge of this metal strap so I move it down to where
it's only gonna hit the wood at the bottom here we go now unless gravity
reverses this wire won't be touching the side of this metal bracket anywhere in
which case we'd have bigger problems okay we've cut this L bracket here and we're
going to use it to secure and strengthen the stud here and that's the wrong one
that's really stiff this one that one no just meet the next no this one all right
this one we're gonna secure and stiffen this up here again again fast job but
that's what this is all about time one thing at a time right it looks really gnarly but there is
still a good bit of wood still here it's just rotting right here at the bottom
from an old leak that's before we replaced the window lot stronger now so I actually had the idea of robbing
some of these pan head Phillips screws we had on some other trim pieces out
here to attach this much better and flatter so good job Angela getting ready
to flash tape over this to just make it totally sealed up and then of course get
these rubber head roofing screws which I have a lot of when I built my workshop
and fill in all these other screws that I've robbed Andy the whole be fine so
Angela talked me into trying the rubber Flex spray on here instead there's only
like one little pinhole maybe that one so this should work pretty good
the only bummer is we've got the black because we had the white we decided to
choose the black but it's gonna stick out but whatever it's not really
remember my house is so pretty though oh yeah I think I haven't floor leaks is
more of a bummer than black-on-brown that's different we're not impressed with the spray on
flex seal when you still see a little bit of holes here and there and we've
done about three coats so I'll go ahead and use some of this window flashing
which I am very impressed with you peel this off and it's pretty much like at
our super super sticky layer so we're gonna put this on here as well
we don't want this to mess up on us later you're gonna take it off it's
upside-down yeah we'll do that to me I was really wondering what I did wrong
like something I do to you ah that flex stuff all over me yeah that's a lot
better we are inside the house now we've got all the stuff outside taken care of
and now we are going to address the floor we've already put down to see you
why it slopes down in comparison to the new floor so we've got to go and tear up
the OSB that we've already put down and fix that first what should be easy right
yeah it should be easy turn that OSB up not tearing it up sorry
unscrewing it and properly removing it in a careful fashion so I found out that
the blocking is off by two popsicle sticks hi so we're going to go down to
the workshop and cut a small shim to place underneath it so we don't have to
remove everything we're back in the workshop we got our shims cut good and
put on this board and get back to square one now we're back with shim set number
two hope this works well angel is attaching that back down
on the floor we'll go ahead and do the blocking for this next piece that we're
gonna put down all the blocking is done angel has the other s be reattached it's
all level so now we can take this full sheet here get it in place
attach it that's kind of a long way around it gives at this point yeah yeah check this out walking on the new floor
all the way from Angela to the living room look at that so Angela's not in the mood to take any
kind of break we are maximizing the fact that her mom is watching our voice we're
gonna tear the well not tear we're gonna move the stove out of the way and we're
gonna continue with this width of flooring all the way to the wall which
is what we started two days ago if you remember two or three days ago two or
three days ago we can't remember we're finally actually getting there there you go
that 30 don't go with before that's a lot more sturdy than this was it's not
sturdier than my foot oh that's dirty go wiggle chip lash her
jiggle whiplash there's not ever been any water right there I just finished all the blocking for the
next sheet right here and Angela's cutting me my last blocking that'll go
from this last joist and under the wall to the other we're not really sure what
to do with the plumbing just yet as far as proper floor support we are gonna
have to cut this off to install the base cabinets and everything but we do plan
on reusing all of this black ABS there's nothing wrong with it
the Studer event right there it still works it doesn't leak so it ain't broke
don't fix it so I'm just gonna cut it we'll put the cabinet in and then I'll
glue a coupler in place it'll be good I am going to go ahead and run to pet
pipes and see them right here I've got two half-inch pieces 10 feet long red
and blue I'm go go ahead and run them to here and then fish them under the floor
over towards the washer that's where the main I guess water line or artery for
the house is it's over on that side so I'm gonna fish it under there and then
when we get to the point of doing the floor in the laundry room I'll tie it in
or decide what to do with it then I know this gray poly butylene pipe is no good
because we moved the house here we had several of the connections come apart
him break and that was a fiasco in of itself as far as getting water lines
connected the back bathroom is totally PEX
the washing laundry hookup is totally PEX this will be packs front bathroom
specs the only things that'll remain poly poly butylene I think it's poly
butylene it's not polyethylene whatever gray pipe is the main run from my
bathroom to laundry laundry and then to bathroom
so a little bit of pécs we can put in when we can it is well worth it I have
the ends taped up so they stay clean and I got them taped together with some Luna all right I've decided to go ahead and
cut this right about here I'll leave myself enough sticking up out of the
floor but also enough here to do a coupler on because I just want to drill
a hole in this new floor that's going down just for the supply and drain lines
to fit through tear this tape off
we'll get this p-trap out of here hey perfect timing don't tilt that just sit
outside we're gonna need it later and now because we don't really like the
smell of sewer in the house you just were weird like that I'm gonna tape this
up close as best as I can whether it be a little bit wet from that water here we go now that's nice and caps a
better current supply lines and our new ones and everything's real happy right
there happy little pipes well guys that's it for today what a day
I'd say we got a good bit done it was a lot more productive or productive
productive oh yeah it was a productive hold a productive day with the boys at
my mom's we did get some outside time oh yeah that was fun um talk about just
knowing that this is the tip of the iceberg with the house but it's okay
we'll get it done we will it's worth it it is definitely
well I'm too tired to think anything else other than thanks for watching we
didn't get all this floor done so we'll save that fun for another day I don't
know if it'll be tomorrow cuz Angela works tomorrow we're kind of keeping our
fingers crossed that tomorrow while she's at work I'll call the store they
may have the window we need for the kitchen and if so the boys and I'll take
a little miniature road trip down and get that maybe that's about an hour
drive I think yeah probably so and what do you think you think we got two days
left to flooring I don't want to guess um considering maybe three consider this
took us two days just well we had to go back and do some stuff too I know so I
don't know I don't know if we have two days or 10 days left hopefully only two
or three right regardless of what we have we'll be sure and bring you guys
along yeah leave us a comment below we love reading them we're trying to
respond as fast as we can but with us working a lot and you guys leaving a lot
of comments which we love we're not super fast on it but we will get to you
so definitely do that and we appreciate it
ditto all right let's find something for dinner for the boys it's like 8 o'clock
and we have no kitchen so PB&J no just Pb Pb Pb with bread alright guys
see ya see ya the one we get on camera strips out
amateur so we've got to this window is sugar sugar that so we found out the
thickness of the joist differences form saying and rip a scrap piece of wood to
this thickness come back and shim up that joist that the so yeah well we we
figured out the original so I found out that the block place
underneath it so we don't have to remove everything I said that a lot smoother
than me those previous tries I'm gonna look taller cuz I'm on wood that's right
you gonna be talking I'm too tired to be taller you
