Opening 15 sec. Sponsors 15 sec Intro 30 sec. Welcome back to So You’re Renovating, Cottage edition for the third week of intense renovation. The renovations are going real fast and we invite you to follow their evolution form week to week. If you are just starting to watch our show, you need to know that we first lifted the cottage up with a crane. Then we re-constructed the foundations, added an extra reinforced concrete floor, re-built the top floor from the old cottage, re-roofed, added 7 sky lights, changed all doors and windows and insulated the roof and all the walls. Now we are finishing the inside and we are showing it all to you. Again, we invited some of our handy-friends with “little” experience to come and give us a hand. By the way, we have a little contest here. You can go on the So You’re Renovating.com and vote for your preferred handy-friend. The handy friend that collects more vote will win at the end of the series the help of our renovation team to renovate:……… is own place. Today, our Handy-hosts are: Peter Eric and Jenna 30 sec. A/ What do yo do in your life. What do you think of renovation works. Where do you live, alone with your folks, dog, cat, kids, girlfriend, boyfriend… What type of home of flat you live in.

X 3 Retrospective (from the handy-hosts about their day on the site) So You’re Renovating ad15 sec. Conclusion and presentation of next week assignments and topics. 30 sec. Sponsors 15 sec. Closing 30 sec. A/ Ventilation fans: Installation: The first thing to do is to locate the exterior vent. You can install the exterior vent on the exterior wall, on the roof, or through soffits. To obtain the best performance possible from your ventilation fans, try to have the shortest possible duct run and minimum number of elbows.. OK. Let’s start with we making the opening. You must always make the opening from the outside to the inside to prevent damaging the exterior finish of the house. Comments The exterior wall is always a better solution because: The interior ducts are not exposed to cold the same way as when they go through the attic. Also, when you install a roof vent, you need to make an opening in the roof that can cause water infiltration if a professional does not do it. O.K. the opening is ready so you can install the ventilation unit now. The installation of the ventilation fan it-self is very simple. Bend the housing tabs Mount the housing to the joist Attach the damper/duct connector Install the 6 inch round ductwork. Once the ceilling is finished simply attach the grille to the housing and then push it up against the ceiling. Evacuating humidity from your bathroom is very important, otherwise you could run into problems like: Mold. Mildew. Peeling paint. Warping. Ruined insulation. Even wood rot. The ventilation fans we selected assure comfort and easy installation, trouble-free operation, day in and day out. Virtually silent operation. These models are the quietest products on the market . The new housing, wheel and motor designs deliver better air flow, even in difficult installations. Tips Billboard : Logo Broan Virtually silent operation. Powerful ventilation. These ventilation fans are ENERGY STAR qualified to help reduce energy expenditures. Finally, they have a rugged construction and quality. That’s it!! Congtratulatoin let’s turn it on. Wow, very silent and it looks good. That is it with foggy mirors. Central Vacuum Systems Installation: The inlet installation kit provides everything you need. You can order add-on inlet installation kit for additional inlets. You need to : Route PVC piping, fittings and low-voltage wiring from the inlets to the power unit. Connect PVC piping and low-voltage wiring to power unit. Install face plates on inlet valves and connect low-voltage wiring. Plug in power unit to standard electrical outlet and the system is ready to go. You got 2 hours !!! Quiet clean and easy to use: that’s the built-in advantage from central vacuum. Central vacuum system is a long lasting built-in convenience that actually adds value to your home. More than twice the suction of conventional vacuum cleaners. Offer a wide selection of cleaning brushes and accessories to clean everything form carpeting and ceilings to drapes. Central vacuum systems are designed for easy installation in new or existing homes. In new homes, under construction, installation is simple. Just plan the location of the power unit and automatic inlets with your builder or contractor. For existing homes, tubing can be run through cold air returns, closets and stairwells. Cleaner system Central vacuum system will not recirculate dust-laden air back into the room being cleaned. Instead, dirt and dust are dawn to the debris collection canister in the power unit, well away from the living area. The system can also be vented to the outside, which is great for those who suffer from household dust allergies. Quiet Central vacuum system is extremely quiet. That’s because the power unit is located in a garage, basement or utility room away from the general living area. So now you can clean a room without disturbing a conversation or somebody’s favourite TV show, like our TV show: So You’re Renovating! Also, you won’t scare away all the wild animals, each time you vacuum. Canister-mounted cleaning inlet lets you insert cleaning hose directly into power unit and eliminate the need fo an additional wall inlet. Debris removal is clean and simple, Just pop the latch and remove high-capacity canisters. Tips billboard: Logo Broan More than twice the suction of conventional vacuum cleaners. Central vacuum system will not recirculate dust-laden air back into the room being cleaned Central vacuum system is extremely quiet because the power unit is located away from the general living area. C/ Perma Deck avantage Plus Here we are finally, ready to install the recycled plastic deck. We have the mitre saw, a measuring tape, the cordless screw driver and the screws Stainless steel screws are required to prevent any corrosion. Install 2 per end of board and alternate in the middle.……Go! The maximum decking span is 12" on center for 1" thick boards and 16" on center for 5/4, 2x6 and Tongue and groove boards at 90 degrees of the joist. Abnormal boarding on the deck surface with large planter, hot tubs, etc. may require shorter spans and/or additional sub-structure supports Here the joists are spaced 12 inches centre so any type of installation is possible. Before installing PERMA-DECK on your wood frame, make sure the frame is fully dried, levelled and squared. PERMA-DECK can be cut, drilled, mitred and sanded with conventional wood working tools. Carbide tipped saw blades are required. When framing, the end of each PERMA-DECK decking board must be on a full joist. PERMA-DECK will expand and contract approx. ¼" per 8 board feet over a wide range in temperature. Design considerations should allow for this movement. I f you construct a balcony right against the house, leave a gap between the wall and the boards to allow for such expansion. Pre-drill holes (5/16-in diam.) into each plank. Counter sink all holes (1/2-in.diam.) at a depth of 3/8 in. Bits design to do both jobs at once exists. Apply screw caps (available as accessories) to hide screws (flat screw caps are 1/2 in. diam) If you need to notch a PERMA-DECK deck board around a post you must leave at least a ¼" gap at the post. Good job Jenna! (comments on the look of the product) The only thing we need to do now is to trace a chalk line to cut all the boards at the same time. Then, we use a carbide tipped router bits for smoother edge. Perma-Deck boards are a practical and innovative solution for long-lasting decks, porches and balconies. Perma-Deck is environmentally-friendly, ultra-durable and is made from 100% recycled plastic. Safe, Maintenance free, easy to install, and ultra durable.

Alternative: D/ Soundproofing the bedroom walls Ok Peter, last week we did an acoustical test with on of our handy friend. He was loud! Now, today, we all know that controlling noise means comfort and also allow us to listen to beautiful voices like Ross. Whether you’re buying a home or renovating, did you know that you can reduce noise by as much as 50% very easily, simply by installing resilient channels and acoustical batts. SYR 2002 #10 10184001 10184622 10192203 10193907 10195300 10201026 10214612 10215816 10245117 10250220 SYR 2002 #12 12135304 12140426 12140719 12144513 12150021 12150506 12165224 12172016 12192112 12192812 The trouble spots to insulate are interior walls between bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms. If someone takes a shower or flushes a toilet, it won’t wake you up. It is a good idea to also wrap noisy water pipes. Installing acoustical batts is so easy that you can do it yourself. Simply install the batts between the studs. Then nail resilient channels across the studs according to manufacturer’s instructions. These light metal strips provide a break to prevent sound waves from passing through the studs and into the drywall. Fasten the drywall to the resilient channels with screws. Ensure screws do not touch framing. To control the passage of noise through a ceiling, place the acoustical batts between the floor joists and then attach the resilient channels and complete the job with drywall. O.K. Peter, you have two hours to finish this partition. Where optimum noise control is desired, weather stripped solid wood core doors should be used. Walls studs should be disconnected from the structure by placing a sill gasket underneath and above. Light switches and outlets should not be constructed back-to-back. Also, piping should be isolated from surrounding structures with resilient mounts. Cracks and holes around windows, doors and electrical outlets make it easy for noise to travel through your home. Seal them with a minimal expanding foam sealant. Ok” Peter now let’s listen to Ross after you sound proofed. What do you tink! Tips Billboard: Owens Corning Installing acoustical batts is very easy. You can reduce noise by as much as 50% very easily, simply by installing resilient channels and acoustical batts. Ideally, solid wood core doors should be installed General pro-Environment segment We wanted to renovate a country house to put the highlight on the environment. Our homes play a very important part in the way we live and consume. Homes affect our energy consumption, waste production, and pretty much everything else. Your home, the way it is built, the material that were used, its design and its style all play a decisive role on your behavior. Make sure that when you renovate, you take these transformations as an opportunity to improve your energy efficiency, reduce your waste and recycle. When you think renovations, think environmentally friendly Information segment The thermal wall To build a home that delivers greater energy efficiency and that has lower the heating and air conditioning bills, we chose an innovative solution: The Thermal Wall. The Thermal Wall is a comprehensive system of maximum insulation that wraps your house in a near air tight envelope. This ensures that your home is warmer in winter, cooler in summer and saving you money all year round. You stand to gain: Maximized energy efficiency for increased comfort at reduced cost. A warmer, drier home that contributes to a healthier environment. A home that requires low maintenance and is built to last and finally a greater potential re-sale value for your home. A thermal wall combines a Foam Seal R gasket, rigid polystyrene insulation and fiberglas batts. Most of us are already familiar with the fiberglas insulation but ignore the technique that consists of adding the rigid panels from the outside or the inside. The advantage exterior insulation provides is that it eliminates thermal bridges. In fact, since the insulating material completely envelops the house, no material, such as the wood structure for example, comes in contact with exterior cold temperatures, and conducts heat from inside. Outside insulation keeps the cavity and timbering warm. Finally, minimal expanding foam sealant seals cracks and holes in walls and around doors, windows and electrical outlets. Tips Billboard: Logo Owens Corning Polystyrene insulation combined with insulation batts, provide a more durable and energy-efficient wall and home so you’ll be happy and comfy while saving money on energy bills. Don’t forget that insulating your house is in everybody’s interest. Interview: Conserve the nature.
