Kiln Shed: Progress
Well, work continues on the kiln shed. This long weekend was a mixed bag of weather. Between the high winds, and on and off showers we managed to make some headway. First thing we did was get the tarp on the ceiling of the shed.
Kiln Shed: Tarps and Strapping
Its been a couple of weeks since we worked on the kiln shed trusses. Either the weather was lousy or we were busy, but yesterday we had a lovely spring day and a couple of hours to spare in the afternoon. Check out the blue sky. Beautiful.
Replacing 150 year old Window Panes
Last weekend Jim and a couple of other local men got together and repaired the damages to the local church after our last wind storm. The only thing not touched were the three window panes which broke.
Local Church Sustains Wind Damage
This week we had another nor’easter storm blow through. We didn’t get any of the snow that was forecasted but the winds packed a punch. Our local church didn’t make it through the storm unscathed.
Wind: 1, heat pump shelter: 0.
Remember way back when we built a shelter to protect our heat pump? No? Well me neither. Had to look it up, surprised it was only in the fall of 2015. Seems like it has been there for longer.
Two sided picture frame
This was a fun project. We have the original deed to our land from September 8th, 1952. We were looking for something else one day and came across it. We decided it should really be framed in order to better preserve it.
I feel like we accomplished a lot this weekend. First up was finishing the painting of Santa, and Christmas Nativity and Stable for a customer.
So much to do and so little time. Thats how it seems anyways. We haven’t had a chance to mill anymore poplar logs and now we have a pile of pine to get done before winter. We have a running list in the office and other things have to get done first.
A lady in our neck of the woods contacted Jim to see if he would have time to install a new glass storm door for her.
Building a 10x20ft Shed – floor joists
We started on building a shed this past week. We recycled 2×6 pressure treated boards that came off of a deck we dismantled a couple years ago.
Shipping Container: 2nd Side
On the weekend we started on the second side of the shipping container board and batten project.
