The drywall we’re using on the Kuppersmith Project house is a lightweight material that weighs 30% less than standard drywall. It’s also more sag resistant, scores and snaps cleanly, and is made with 100% recycled paper. Watch this video to find out more.
One of the most unique features of the Kuppersmith Project house is the inlayed, marble mantel in the living room. Imagine my surprise to find out that the mantel is actually much older than the 1926 house it now occupies. Watch this video to find out more.
To match the floors in the Kuppersmith house, heart pine boards were sawn from salvaged beams then milled into flooring. The new flooring was stacked in the house on spacers to allow the wood to adjust to the temperature and humidity before being installed. Watch this video to find out more.
There are very few home improvement projects that I don’t do myself; which is both a blessing and a curse, just ask my wife. Over the past few years I’ve built a bathroom, constructed a mahogany bookcase, hung drywall, laid an engineered-wood floor, and installed wainscoting. However, even I, a fearless (some say, foolish) DIY-er, know when it’s time to call in a pro.
