The wall is in good shape. I figured I would ask due to the two small ears that will be behind the sheet rock.

upvote for you input - Would running them through a planer be an alternative? As the room is open to the kitchen and a stairway, it will be difficult, but not impossible to mask off. Thats why I was thinking about having them at least refaced off the floor. They have a finsh coat of something on them(not sure what they used back then). So not sure if it would burn out blades along with mikes's comment on wood hardness being this old.

comment Troubleshooting a leaking exterior door
Worth a try. I think I can block up the room pretty good with the plastic. Is there a special smoke maker? Is it like a stick or something? Can i get it at the hardwarestore?

comment Troubleshooting a leaking exterior door
It's a steel door with a glass panel. Not sure that the house is "tight", it was built in 1760. Is there a way to isolate the door and doo the smoke test? It sounds like a good idea.

comment Troubleshooting a leaking exterior door
@gregmac I love Mike Holms, so don't get me wrong here, he made the storm door statment and I was thinking "he's right" that's when my wife brought up the Norm statement. I just want the water to not come in. If I have to go with storm door than so be it. I have little time left to get the leak fixed and the floor done and just need the best way to fix/address the issue.

@TheEvilGreebo - I have at just the door and that seems to be the point of infultaration. I have recently replaced the siding with Clapboards and there are no running seams over the door.

up vote for your comment - The walls have just been painted in the bathrooms. Will this fling the "mud" all over the place? Can it be done with misting water to keep the dust down? I like this idea as well.
