hard to tell but I rolled the ceiling with good ceiling paint this morning and then started on the electrical. Got all the led lights in the cans and all the duplexes installed.  Just need some 20 amp receptacles and some switches. I was pleased that all my wiring was where I expected it to be and all the receptacles  and fixtures were wired correctly.  All breakers on and nothing tripped or burned down.

I got mine from Northern. On sale and with a coupon I paid $125 per.  Rated the same but no solid shelf.  Just the wire.  Of course right after I bought them they raised their normal price from 179 to 199

So I got the PVA primer sealer and broker out the airless sprayer. And man if I didn?t run out of primer mid job and have to make a run into town. But about 8 1/2 gallons later and it?s primed.  I?ll roll the ceiling in the morning and start working on the finish electrical

If it?s still a little wobbly for your tastes, you might consider a full x brace from floor to top between each post using 2x4 or even 1/4 cable and turnbuckles

Of course the front you?d have to leave open with just the corner braces

My opinion. Don?t wait for it to happen again. If you don?t think reason or logic will prevail. It?s much less suspicious for the dog to make an exit now.

Sorry Dave.  That?s one of the reasons the casita is taking so long. I refuse to half do it even on the stuff behind the walls that won?t be seen.  As I get to the finishes it will be hard to not let my anal retentiveness take over.

Ken, I sure you factored for this.  It doesn?t look like you have enough material on top of the culvert to support an H1 load.  Isn?t there a label on the pipe that shows the depth of material required to meet spec?


At first I thought H1 was in reference to Hillary...



Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Lol. Probably close to the same. I don?t remember the exact spec but it?s from rural farm road specs for heavy farm equipment. I want to say it was20k axle load.  I bet Norm remembers

Thanks for being the voice of reason Bob.  I?m getting less stupid as I get older..

JR that all I keep the G17s around for.  They are Strictly for practice since I can run crappy wolf steel ammo cheap and they handle just like the G21 or G20

I used to shoot 1500 rounds of pistol a month but life got busy. I?m going to get back to it and try to shoot at least 500 a month

And,it?s tougher practicing alone, no,one to call colors or run the shot timer. Looking for some training tips/drills to run alone.

Dusted off some perishable skills.  Ran 6 mags through the G17.  5 step draw and moving and shooting. In the el presidente I couldn?t bring myself to shoot the red plate as much as the others. Interesting that the left most plate saw more trigger milking than the others. Have to keep an eye on that in the future.  Was running slower than usual to reinforce sight alignment and trigger control.  Still got some decent double taps in and only missed 4 shots out of 102. Plates are 5-1/2x9 iirc.








Of course I was too dumb to put ear plugs in and now I?m dealing with ringing. Too lazy to walk back to the seacan

Ok. Swept the debris out and measured for the trim and cabinets. Gonna have the trim rough sawn in pine just like the main house.

Finished pulling cable to the seacan and terminated the pull box and sealed it to the outside.  Made a drip edge out of some 2x2 angle over the door

Need to work on ordering the AC this evening. 

And the mud crew shows up tomorrow am.
