LOL yeah Shawn at one time I was moving about every 2-2 1/2 years, plus a lake house and now this second house.  I never stayed in a house long enough for it to need a refresh, but now that I'm in my current house going on 10 years, the crap is multiplying exponentially. Good news is that it has appreciated 30%

Ordered the carpet last night.  It MAY make it on the truck for Tuesday the 18th. If it doesn?t it won?t get here until 1/8/2019 because two holidays on each of the next two week?s Tuesdays.  And they only get shipments on Tuesdays . Bummer.

Hoping the stairs will be done next week.

Thanks guys.  I have the 12 inch standard compound miter saw that is 23 years old now (Man, I'm getting old, bought that saw in '95 to remodel my first house)  Wife and girls got me the sliding compound for my birthday.

Stairs are on order.  Should be ready either next week or week after, I think.  They are one piece welded so should be a matter of threading them through the door and standing them up and bolting it down.  Carpet should be in before the stairs go up which will complete the upper floor.

That leaves tile floor, tile in the shower, cabinets, countertops, toilet, shower glass enclosure, them base molding and trim on the doors.

Then I'll have to run the LP line to the tankless water heater

Got to unbox the new saw.

Harv, this is how Dotting starts....

Dave, that trailer is not too far from me.  Pretty cool little project.  If I had a place to park it covered I'd consider snatching it up just  because.  A friend and I are talking about getting into adventure biking and that would be a cool way to travel with a couple of bikes.

With a kydez neck sheath?

Are you living a cheesy low grade action movie?

Negative sir. My weapon of choice when I have to disarm in a gun free zone.  Actually the grip would be wrong for a neck sheath.  My Cold Steel counter TAC II is not bad for a neck sheath, but I'll need a right side deployment for the blade to be on the bottom of the right hand.  I absolutely love my Emerson Karambit folder

No real advice other than maybe open the space up and use moveable, configurable furniture so to be mission configurable.

Shawn, that looks good.  I haven't been able to park my ride in a garage in 5 years.  Momma has both hers in the garage and both mine sit outside....

Nice retort, Nate....

JR. love it!  I did that to a jaguar convertible with a couple of alternative lifestyled individuals in it a few years ago.  They were trying to jump off the light and cut on to the freeway on ramp

I may get fired for not mentioning this earlier, but I'll risk it.  I would have heat wrapped the headers to keep the heat down.  Maybe when you swap the heads.

Thanks Sam.  There is enough 130 proof whiskey there to make an entire crowd stupid.

Thought about you today.  Watching Building Off The Grid, North Pole and these guys built a 12x16 cabin 16 miles from no where hauling in everything on snowmobile.  Way envious, but I would be doing it solo.  Wife is not on board.

Well up at 04:00 and after a cup of coffee I headed to the hide to install the trim for the inside of the windows and crown end pieces that I had stained and  varnished last week.


Then I measured and cut and stained the rest of the trim and crown mounding. Will  varnish it next weekend. Headed baxk for bible study with the extended family tomorrow.

Ah man, I can't do that

A huge departure from stock and the LS can make all that power easily without the added weight and fuss

Would look cool though!

Good job, Don.  Just goes to show you what perseverance and hard work can do!

Might be worth buying a half cord of known good seasoned wood to see the difference and determined burn rates for future wood storage.

Dave. I have a friedrich in the seacan and LG in the casita. 

Depends on how insulated your place is. Between the 2 zones on the LG I have 18000 btu in 768 sq ft

I get stuff done because I only sleep 5 hours or less. Blessing and curse
