Above is a picture of the side of the roof I wanted to get housewrap over today! Note that there is a tarp over it! Which I did NOT want to take all the way back off, because bugger that for a lark! Continue reading stapling flappy things in the wind
Because of the rafters, I needed more than sixteen feet of roof. To be precise, as seen above, I needed sixteen feet & 20.5 inches of roof, so that’s what I cut.
That piece went on the back section of the roof, & the rest of that sheet of plywood went along the side, which is enough to cover nearly the entire roof. Continue reading the continuing saga of Roof
But first, a break to demolish some pallets, first, cos the wood will want a couple days to dry before I start putting it on the wall. Continue reading moar roof
By which I mean yes, I AM using my van as scaffolding.
… look, unlike a ladder, my van will. Not. Fall. Over. Continue reading this is the Very Most Excellent Idea
When I last posted about the front wall it was ALMOST but NOT QUITE finished to the top on the right side of the doorway. As the top picture shows, it is now finished ALL THE WAY UP on the right side of the doorway!
(Okay, the arch isn’t done, but I don’t need that to put the door in.) Continue reading moar wall
I sanded it & then painted it purple, because have you met me. Continue reading yes it’s actually a door now
I had to go to Albuquerque to get a bunch of things done, so of course the boys went with me.
Loiosh does NOT like his sweater, despite the blinky eyes in the pic above. I think I need to trim the belly part a bit; it looks like it hangs up when he tries to walk. But it’s long enough for him, which is hard to find with dog sweaters. Continue reading lil road trip
Y’all, salvage is where it’s AT.
I got two solid wood, huge, HEAVY doors. For five bucks apiece. When I build a shed, I’m making the walls out of DOORS, they’re cheaper than PLYWOOD.
ALSO I got a nice lil cabinet for fifteen. Seriously, this place is DANGEROUS.
Check out the cabinet:
That’s where it’s gonna go although I haven’t fastened it there yet. The inside is distressingly white but that’s fixable. It can hold cloaks! & shoes!
Anyway here’s a door. No, I can’t pick it up, but I can kind’ve shuffle it along & tilt it & lift the end.
This is not a recommended method for holding down one end of a cutting guide. Ask me how I know.
BUT HEY it’s doorlike? & there are lots of ways to fill in the gaps?
Next up: Hinges! & then I ask my roommate to hold the door up while I get it attached! I hope it doesn’t fall on them!
This way I don’t breathe sawdust! As much!
Which is good cos holy CATS does this door make a lot of sawdust. Continue reading Very Complex Door
