Chasing down plywood and gathering up lumber in 30 mph winds. I unloaded a trailer full of lumber and stacked it up against a wall not realizing we were going to have wind advisories. Once the winds started, I worried about the plywood, but never would have believed the 2x6s would blow all over the place in the gusts.

OMG I just heard something bad outside, guess I’ll need to put on my hardhat on check. Oh well its too dangerous outside. I saw a piece of metal roofing bounce down the road.

Awesome day! I took a wrong turn on a road I've traveled many times, went way out of my way before turning around to go collect rent from a tenant then came home! Almost ran out of gas along the way, but did buy a delicious something or another and washed it down with prune juice so i can crap it back out in a day or so!

Fixed a fart fan this morning. Bought a new motor several years go and the shaft was too long. Finally took it down stairs and grinder it down. Works like a champ now..

Now I gotta figure put how I'm gonna tackle this

Thus far I woke up, had a cup of coffee and have smoked several cigarettes. I did crack the door to see how cold it was, but plan on cleaning up the shop in anticipation of A. Selling the old saw and B. Ordering the new saw. If the old saw doesn't sell it might end up in the driveway under a tarp.. There's a ton of old saws on CL so it probably won't sell, but I might lower the price again..

I'm gonna look for parts for Acorn brand windows. Brand they used when they built the house. Daughter signed on her house . They officially can move in today. She wants me to have a look at it before I go for a treatment.

2 -1×4×8 rough cedar is almost $8 each...

First proper project in probably 2 years. Work has been getting in the way. Built my mom a pantry cabinet to put next to her fridge to close it in. 8' tall, 22" wide, birch ply shell, oak face frame and shelf caps. Thing is probably way overkill, and weighs probably 200 pounds, but it won't fall apart like store bought cabinets either. I climbed in it and it didn't budge, and I'm ~210lbs...

Extra flooring had a rubber type backing, put a few together flipped over thinking it would make a good sanding surface?
