When we bought our current house, the upstairs hall was like that. Owner of the house painted it, but was so afraid of heights they could not use a stepladder and reach the top.

Plan out HVAC, electrical, and plumbing jobs. Wallender said these are vital services that need to be installed when the walls and ceiling are open.

安排好空调、电气管线和管道工作。Wallender说到,这些都是最为重要的装修事宜,这些东西需要在墙体和棚顶内部安装。

"Open walls and ceilings make it easier for the HVAC company to install ductwork for central heating and air conditioning and for electricians and plumbers to run new electrical and plumbing systems."

开放式墙体和棚顶会让装空调的公司更方便安装中央空调的管道系统,当然也会让电工和水管工更容易安装电力、下水管线管道。”

It's also important to mention that in most places, building code requires that only those professionally licensed to do the work can handle this part of the renovation, so carefully check the requirements in your area.

需要注意的是,在大多数地方,建筑规范要求只有那些持有专业执照的人才可以进行这部分的改造工作,所以你需要多仔细查一下你所在地区的要求。

"Window installation, whether whole-house or partial, almost always plays into a home remodel project," Wallender explained.
"Installing new-construction or replacement windows is a project many homeowners can try, but keep in mind doing it on your own might invalidate the manufacturer's warranty. Check into the requirements and hire a professional if necessary, as that warranty could save you many headaches down the road."

“窗户的安装,无论是整栋房子还是部分,几乎都属于家装改造工程的一部分,” Wallender解释到。
新装或更换窗户是许多房主可以自己做的部分,但请记住,自己动手做的话可能会使制造商的保修失效。看你的要求,如果有必要的话最好请专业人士,因为有保修,这样可以为你省去很多麻烦。”

Before the drywall goes up, the insulation must go in. "Look at the options for insulation, and plan to use different types for different areas of the house. You'll need it in the walls and attic, and you might be able to do all of it yourself."

在装石膏板墙之前,需要先填充好保温绝缘材料。“视情况选择,对于房子里不同区域,先想好用哪种隔绝材料。你家的墙和阁楼上都会用到它,或许这部分工作你可以亲自动手去做。”

"You'll close up the walls with drywall: hanging it, mudding it, and sanding it," Wallender continued. "Drywallers hang sheets of drywall, apply drywall compound, and let the compound dry. After drying, they sand it smooth.
Sometimes, they will repeat the process until they achieve a seamless surface. With some practice and patience, you might be able to do this on your own."

“你需要用石膏板把墙封起来:先挂起来,抹些涂层,最后再进行打磨。”装修工人会把干的墙板挂起来,抹上一层涂层,然后阴干。等墙面干透后,再进行打磨。有时,他们会反复进行这个过程,直到他们得到一个平整无缝的表面。你只要稍加练习,多点耐心,也许这个工作你自己就能独立完成。”

Next comes the carpentry that is not supportive, such as baseboards, molding, trim around windows and doors, and built-in elements (bookcases or breakfast nooks). Fine carpentry gives your house that finished touch.
When those are done, move on to interior painting, wallpaper, and other finishing work. "Many homeowners can handle the work of painting interior walls, hanging wallpaper, painting molding and trim, or staining and sealing trim," Wallender said. "All of these detail-oriented surface finishes should be some of the last items you do indoors, as this work can damage other parts of the process. For instance, should you paint before installing or sanding your flooring or the reverse? This is debatable. Laying flooring first means that paint might get on the flooring. Painting first means that the floor sander may scuff your walls."

接下来是相对次要的木工工作,比如安装踢脚板、走线、门窗周围的饰物和固定家具(比如书架或饭桌)。细致的木工活会让你家的房子焕然一新。当这些工作完成后,下一步就是室内内墙喷涂,贴壁纸和其他收尾工作。Wallender说:“类似内墙喷涂、贴墙纸、上漆、装饰,或着色抹缝工作,很多房主自己都能做。” 所有这些注重打磨细节的工作都应该是你做室内装修的最后一件事,但这种工作可能会造成意外的损坏。比如,你是该在铺设或抛光地板前刷漆,还是相反?这是有争议的。先铺地板意味着油漆可能会沾落到地板上。先刷墙壁意味着地板打磨机可能会顶坏墙壁。”

Then install flooring. "Your final floor covering will vary depending upon the room; for instance, you might choose laminate, solid hardwood, engineered wood, or carpet for various living and bedroom areas and vinyl, tile, or marble for bathrooms and kitchens."

之后是铺设地板。“最终用到的地板需要根据房间的不同而做出不同的选择;比如,客厅和卧室你可能会选择层压板、实木地板、复合地板或各种不同的地毯,浴室和厨房会用到乙烯基、瓷砖或大理石。”

But no matter what you choose, Wallender suggests installing the flooring as late as possible in the renovation process. This will save your flooring surface from significant damage.

但无论你做出什么选择,Wallender建议在装修过程中地板尽可能放到最后铺设。这样可以避免你的地板表面受到严重损坏。

Once the inside is done, or at least close to it, you can work on the exterior of the house. "With the house mostly finished, it is safe to put on the gutters and siding. You do not want to do this earlier unless absolutely necessary, because doors and windows may get punched out, thus ruining the exterior job," Wallender said.

室内部分一旦装修完成,或接近完成,你就可以开始考虑房子外部装修了。房屋改造大体完工,现在可以安全着手安装下水和外墙体了,但除非绝对必要,否则最好不要太早动手,因为门窗可能会出现改动,从而干扰屋子外部工作。”

"Now you can also consider external renovations that might be connected to the house, such as adding a front porch or sunroom. Now is also the time to think about the parts that are entirely separate from the house, such as detached garages or swimming pools."

My neighbor has a toilet with a triangular tank made to fit in the corner. Never knew they made them until she showed me.

Don't be too hard on yourself if these tasks seem daunting. Earlier this year, a study of 2,000 UK property owners found almost half (48 percent) don’t think their home will ever be ‘finished’ – with some of the bigger tasks still in progress ranging from loft conversions to half-done home offices.

如果感觉这些装修改造工作太困难,就不要对自己太苛刻。今年早些时候,一项针对2000名英国业主的研究发现,近一半(约48%)的人认为他们的房子永远不会“完工”,从阁楼改造到完成一半的家庭办公室,一直有更多的装修改造工作进行当中。

Some of the top reasons for these jobs being left unfinished include not having the skills required to complete them (22 percent), underestimating the time it would take to manage the project (20 percent), and underbudgeting (16 percent).

导致这些工作未完成的主要原因包括技能水平不足(22%)、低估完工时间(20%)和预算不足(16%)。

The problem lies in those two blades. Shorten those two blades and everything will work out just fine.

问题出在那两个叶片上面。把这两个叶片弄短点,问题不就都解决了。
