DIY: Replacing Ventilation Fan


DIY: Replacing Ventilation Fan

Maybe about a year ago, wife told me there is a burning smell of plastic at laundry room – and noticed the fan was on for some long period, and the burning smell went away when I turned off the fan. (and placed a tape on the switch not to turn on)

As this was the fan at first floor, getting access directly from the top was not an option, hence studied youtube videos for a long period and multiple times and finally attempted to replace it. This required lots of work – electricity wiring, hammering/screw nailing – as the fan was attached to different direction then intended, dry wall cutting as there was no exact size as old one in the market. Finally, found the fan’s plastic was broken causing the smell after inhaling lots of dust only after I tore down the existing fan. ๐Ÿ™‚

After all – maybe saved about $150-$200 labor cost ๐Ÿ™‚

Sagging Gutter & Repair


Owning a home – to be exact – owning a responsibility to fix a home, taught me one more thing – Gutter can “sag”. All of sudden from some point there were extreme noise of water dropping at the backyard deck so I looked up and found a gap between gutter and roof-end and found out gutter was getting flatter and separating from the roof..ย  another priceless moment ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

After hours of research on web & youtube, finally found the right materials to fix and enjoyed the few hours of climbing up the roof and crawling flat on the roof with drill on one hand outside to plant the fixers. I guess kind of band-aided maybe for 2-3 years, hopefully…
