    Thought I would update this thread to let you guys know everything is looking well. I actually
    ended up using wood putty before there was a reply suggesting drywall putty. I used Top Gun 400
    from PPG ...

    Is the silicon good for outside the window? I picked up some Alex painter's caulk to apply
    before painting. I hope it's good stuff. Thanks guys.

    I started on a painting project this week and everything was going well with it until I
    realized I needed to paint the windows. To make a long story short, the window sill had a lot
    of peeling paint a...

    Thanks for the tips guys. Today was largely unsuccessful but I will try to tackle the fireblock

    have a pretty ...

    Small update...so far so good. Dropped cables to two additional rooms on 2nd floor using
    techniques discussed here. Will have to drill new holes for additional cables for one more
    room. Also will have...

    I ended up drilling an angled hole under the subfloor and into the base plate to avoid drilling
    through the I-joist. I think I was fortunate to get the right angle using a spade bit. I'm not
    sure if I...

    Ok, so would I be able to do the same thing done at the top of the joistswith the existing
    wires to get the new wires through? It seems my other option would be to drill holes in the
    bottom plate off ...

    Yes, it is sitting on a double top plate. Of course, the double top plate is precut (or I guess
    "notched" is the better word) as well in order for the exiting wire to continue its route.
