I?m growing less patient and am going to start sub contracting.

Got a plumber coming Sunday to give me an estimate on the plumbing rough in.

Then I?ll finish the electrical and contract insulation and Sheetrock.

Keep the big house stocked with Chocolate and hunker down in the little house, secured behind steel doors and hurricane shades, with Bourbon, meat, firearms, ammo, and your favorite movies!  Only come outside in the wee hours of the morning to watch the sunrise by your fire as you sip coffee and fry an egg......you have until 9am before you must retreat back inside your compound before the zombies might rally for a swim.....prayers sent your way.

Yeah, I feel for you. I have five at home, a couple old enough to cause trouble(16,15,10,5,1). And gotta watch out for momma on occasion too. That?s where having a little acreage comes in handy. And like was said above, just keep the house stocked for their needs and the garage or little house stocked with yours and you might survive.

I'm in that same boat... but at least I have a few more years until it reaches critical mass (they're 8 and 4).
So I had three little ladies at about 18 months separation between each of them, and the momma. When I flew commercial airliners, I could bid a four or a five day trip at around the third week if I have that memory right. That was the ONLY way I (well, maybe they...) survived that retched time.
Then, and I thank God, someone started a couple wars and I was outta here. Got to play Armee while the madness went on without me! So you see, my memories of warfare all all good ones! ;-)

Starting to make some progress



Got to paint the trim on the back and the straight side.

Then I can move to the house.

Casita is officially finished on the outside save for the threshold extension and the last deck board.

Got almost all the house trim painted. Still have the area above the hip roof where I?ll have to make a platform to set a ladder on to get to the peak.

Then the window and door on the rear porch.  86 today. Getting warmer.

Thanks guys, Dave probably use a 2x6 treated top rail and some 2x2 rails and a 2x4 lower stringer.  Not sure if I'm going to put railing around the porch yet or not.  Wife thinks I should, I think if you are dumb enough to fall off a porch then you should sprain an ankle...

Still have a bit of sod to buy and lay down.

I ordered a sewage lift pump station(casita sits below the septic tank level) to move sewage up to the main system.  Also ordered a Norritz 3.5gpm tankless water heater, a KBRS composite shower pan, shower drain and shower valve.  Then I picked up a 30 inch door and pocket door system as I need to frame the bathroom walls out so I can mount the shower valve before the plumber comes in.

This weekend I have to finish painting the remaining trim on the main house and then will probably tackle the framing for the bathroom and the pocket door to get the shower drain and shower valve installed so I can get the plumber out soon.

Then I can move on to the man door in the shipping container and framing the inside of the container to be ready for the spray foam guy for the casita and the shipping container.

Picked up the sewage lift station, check valve and high water alarm for the casita plumbing along with a shower rough in valve.

Then swung by the metal supply and picked up a 36 inch man door, frame and a stick of 2x4 steel tube to install a man door in the shipping container

Got the painting finished on the trim for the main house and went to framing the bathroom walls and pantry walls.

Ready for the plumber to rough in and install the sewage lift station. Won?t be there next weekend but will probably schedule him out the week after.

Then gotta just finish up the electrical before shifting my attention to the shipping container and install the studs and man door and get ready for spray insulation for the casita and the shipping container at the same time.

I don't think there is anything wrong with them, probably just doesn't want to run over them so in the bucket is a safe space...... :popcorn:

I seem to remember you bought climbing gear, I also saw trees. But I also see a roof that could have a fall arrest system mounted to provide a safe and effective system to facilitate a safe working environment for someone to paint and for further upcoming maintenance.

yeah Bobby, I'm old enough to know better but still to young to care.  I figure at 17 ft I can survive the fall as I bounce off the metal roof and then the final 9 feet to the ground.  It would take longer to rig up the harnesses and anchor points than to slap a ladder in the bucket and start painting.....

Probably cause I'm a Safety Trainer and Fall Protection is part of my purview. However, I can say that during the last blizzard I was shoveling dense wet heavy snow off the roof in windy slippery conditions.. So maybe I don't have much leeway either..

For the record, I can still PLF and walk away... TRN maybe not so much.

So I probably shouldn?t mention the day I was standing on that little hip roof power washing the siding.  The grip on metal roof is tenuous at best and when it gets wet it turns to owl snot. One moment I?m standing upright and the next I?m face down flat on my stomach slide towards the edge at a high rate of speed. Still amazed at the human mind and the speed of thought. In that millisecond I thought ?point your toes, maybe you?ll catch the lip of the gutter and that will keep you from going over?

Fortunately it worked. Thus led to the improvised scaffolding which provides much greater purchase than friction on metal roof....

As I?ve never been trained what does PLF consist of ? Assuming it is a duck & roll keeping arms in similar to a skate board or roller blade tumble?

& yes, I realize I?m opening myself to vast criticism by mentioning skate boards & roller blades  :facepalm:

I hate working on metal roofs

I found out that a leather sofa cushion laid down and my kneeling on it provided the grip I needed until the droplets of sweat migrated underneath...Then comes a couple of two inch slips, and that precedes the final break and slide...

Just because I?m too smart to jump out of a perfectly good aircraft doesn?t mean I don?t know how to fall. Feet together, arms in and collapse under tension as you meet the earth feet first (hopefully). Did it just a few months ago when my ladder rolled off the tree at about 12-13 feet in the air.  Decided that I was going to the ground on my own terms and bailed off feet first. 

Helped having Airborne relatives. And falling off stuff since I was about 8 years old.

Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

So plumber came out yesterday and started on the rough in. Laid the 2 inch line from the septic to the lift station and put the lift station in the ground. Then proceeded to rough in the waste lines in the casita and will come back Monday to finish.

So I started tackling this today. I?m fighting a bad cold and 92 heat and humidity didn?t seem to help.

First up. Mark the opening and proceed to cut it out with a small grinder with a cutoff wheel.  Makes me wish I had bit the bullet and got a plasma cutter.  But it got done.



Then clean up the leftover welds on the base beam and clean the paint off the edges where I?ll be welding.
Door is metal with a metal knock down frame.


Then start mocking up the sub frame out of 2x4 square tube


Then install the frame and door.

Got the left side plumb and installed and then on to the right and then lastly the top.

And semi finished.

Have to install the weather stripping and cut the hole in the jamb for the latch and then clean up some welds and prime it.

Then, when I'm finished I'll start installing the stud walls in the shipping container and get it ready for insulation at the same time the insulator is spraying the casita.  Getting closer to being able to install AC and sheetrock...

Lol. The Sheetrock is for the casita. The shipping container will be finished with 7/16 OSB over studs and insulation.

I know, was picking on you. The one armed bandit is away on disability leave so I think he?s currently protected by FMLA from me for the time being..... & we?ll after that serial prefix on his new tool I figure it?s karma at the very least.
