Today will probably be another post that is short on words, but long on pics. Progress has been tedious as I spent an entire day last week just preparing for the rain. I put a couple of huge tarps over the rafters to protect the interior from getting wet. It did a very good job. I permanently installed three of the windows, framed out the bath, hung the bath door, and put the french doors in yesterday. I also started on some rough electrical work.
It's really starting to look like a house now. I'm struggling not to think ahead. I want to finish the exterior because I have a lot of ideas about the interior. I've got other work and things to do, so I'm eager to get it weather-tite, so I don't feel the pressure to make progress every day. I've been pretty crappy about keeping track of my actual time spent on this project, but I'm pretty sure I'm in the neighborhood of 100 hours. Sounds like a lot, but I'm pretty pleased with the progress, especially considering 95% of the work has been done alone.
Took a full day off Monday to cut firewood. It's pointless to spend $$ on firewood when you're surrounded by acres and acres of forest. I cut down a few standing dead trees, which after I split them, they are ready to burn. Had a few small trees that have fallen during storms, and cut them up too.
More details next post. Until then, I've tried to take a few pics that are from some different angles. Thanks for those of you following this!
