    Thanks rifling but that long of a drive for that small of a job is a waste . Me & WD 40 will get that stove to bite size & up the stairs . :p
    I will need to put it back together as soon as I can so I don't forget how or loose bolts ! :rolleyes:

    Looks like another nice day around here .
    With the sun coming up later it means more time in the dark .
    Had another corn feast yesterday ...... checked the kitchen this a.m. & no one cleaned up my mess ! :eek:
    Guess that's where I can start my day at .
    It was nice to have a GF around for those things but she would have been mad at me for the past few years about my projects so it's better to clean up my own messes :p
    With things to do in any direction ...... it is easy to find things to get into ..... some are way more interesting than others . :cool:
    The roll up doors should be on this week so that will help button down shop 3 - 4 at lot better . Sooner or later the rain will be back & 2 14 x 14 doors not on could be a mess inside .
    Can't buy things for the shop on weekends because the help is to stupid to get things right so will need to go Monday to get the right help . ;)
    Guess it is a tossup day .:p

    No matter how you cut it cast iron stove parts are heavy ! :p
    I managed to get 1/3 of the stove apart & drug up the steps ....... those were the easy parts . Soaked a bunch of bolts with WD40 & moved on to plumbing ..... I hate plumbing .
    Bought a small kit & it didn't have the rubbers I need so will go back & get the bigger kit to fix it . :rolleyes:
    The guy didn't return my trailer like he said he would so will need to chase that down tomorrow & get a few things to take to shop 2 . Some people just don't keep there word . :mad:
    200 pounds of cast iron parts stuffed in a Honda was interesting to do :p
    May need to cut some bolts off if the WD doesn't work . No socket for old stove bolt square nuts . If it was in the shop this would be the time for an air chisel to help with the rust . Before this goes back together it will be cleaned & painted with heat paint . It probably will never get used again so it may as well be clean & looking nice . :) Those had to be fun to move with a horse & wagon . May be why not many lived past age 35 :p

    Good outside day for here ! 70s
    Was a bit nippy this am in the 50s .
    Shop one needs some attention . :cool:
    Yard work is out of control so better get at that & get a load of weeds to take to shop 2 to burn . May go crazy & do some painting ..... if I can find the paint . :rolleyes:
    Soon as I find my trailer I plan to buy a few things for shop 3 & drag it out there .
    Have a few phone calls to make & that will drive me outside after a couple of those . :confused:
    Round the day off with some more plumbing & it should be a mixed bag day .:p

    Not a real productive day here .:cool:
    Plumbing took way longer than it should have ....... my trailer is missing ...... weeds are growing ....... some paper work done & the BS was flying ! :p
    All in all it was a real nice day to not get much done . :rolleyes:

    56 in the morning ? ..... In August ? Low 70s for a high ? Hope this doesn't mean a long really cold winter on the way . :eek:
    I will need to get to cutting fire wood early this year ..... yep I say that every year ! :p
    Off to shop 2 today & get those doors on & get one step closer to closing it all up . This cold will set off a bunch of storms when the heat rolls back in so doors will help a lot .
    I still have parts of the cast iron stove in the car so will find a safe place to store them at shop 2 today . Getting the rest apart will get interesting . The smaller I make it the easier it will be to get up the steps . My back will be shot on those days :(
    Spent some time figuring out some lumber I will be needing ...... the numbers are big & the cost made me sick ! :p
    Thinking of ways to save some money ..... I could spray insulation only 6' up the walls & do the rest with bats . That would seal up all around the lower edges & maybe keep critters out & only 6' up would cut the cost a bunch . ( at least it should ) Foam board 2' on the outside edges & plastic on the rest of the floor will still keep my floor dry & cut the cost too . Those 2 things should save around 7 or 8k ..... that's a good savings . :) It all adds up to more can get done & the better it can look . The cement will be the biggest step to sealing things up & make the inside an any time place to work . :cool:

    Another nice day here ..... this can't keep going !:p
    Interesting day yesterday at shop 2 .
    The big doors are on ....... won't stay up but on ...... locks didn't come ( cv19 BS again ) .... busted my 22" weed cutter ....... hunted down my trailer ..... repoed it full of trash :mad:
    Best news of the day ..... my brother brought over all the fixings for BLT samiches :) I fixed 4 for supper last night ..... was great with all garden veggies ! :) He can be a good brother ...... some days :p
    Today is back to pushing rock around . Will start late because I need to make a couple calls & order some materials .
    They are calling for heat & rain this weekend so better get the outside things squared away as best I can today . All needs to go ricky tick to bet the heat .
    A lot of scraps to get burned today too .
    Construction clean up is top of the list today . :rolleyes:

    It was a busy day yesterday & I think I got a few things done . It is hard to tell with moving rock around a building . :eek:
    I did get a load of building materials out to the shops ....... just forgot to take some needed tools out too ! :rolleyes: It was a long forget & loose things day out there . Today I will take tools out & more lumber too . Trying hard to beat the heat on the way for this weekend .
    The guys came to fix the new doors the other guys messed up o_O ..... crap happens I guess .
    I did manage to get the junk off my trailer & burned up ..... that was a lot of crap I didn't need extra on my plate .
    A guy stopped at shop 2 & wanted to buy my place :eek: ..... he offered 3 times what I paid for it .:eek: No idea what brought that on . I don't think I have a for sale sign up ! :confused:
    Yep was a strange day here at the end of the world ! :p
