I didn't get to upload pictures but I cut a bunch of 2x4 blocks and nailed them level at each step and reinstalled the treads. For the most part they are all level now and I do notice a difference in how they feel..in a good way.

I made mention on Facebook that I installed the plywood of the floor in the loft parallel to the joists instead of perpendicular. I was going to take up the floor and turn the plywood 90 degrees but decided a easier way will be to add 2x4 blocking between the joists 16" on center. Hopefully that will make the inspector happy.

Started plumbing rough in. I dropped the ice maker outlet box and broke one of the two mounting ears off.


I'm trying

This social distancing has me working alone till further notice. Everyone's afraid to come over and help now.

Like Randy says, a day at a time. What you do today, you do not have to do tomorrow.

Think of it like a marathon, not a race. You are in it for the long haul.
Enjoy the journey.

This weekend I was pulling nails from shipping boxes from work. Going to use the 1x6 pine boards for the siding on my pole barn that my dad and I started almost 30 years ago. One of these days, it might get finished, or not.

You're getting there, Tim! And I like how everyone, myself included, is good at finding more work for you to do!

Speaking of which, I like Randy's door overhang idea and I might have even mentioned it at one time, also.

AND, get yourself a dozen or more square patio stones to put down in front of that door, even temporarily.

I'm thinking of building a shed roof off that side. Bug enough to park my pickup under. I do need something over there. Roof will have to wait till I get my grading done. I do like the paver idea.

Even a big piece of old carpet will keep the dirt and mud out,on the outside of course.
