I got a brand new gun to break in tomorrow.
I'd smile if I could.

This job is 25 on and at least 50 off, not looking forward to the triple layered sections!

 Yep gotta agree with Jeff, I know that I would not have my shop / garage had I not have my own mill . Sure was fun cutting down the trees and sawing them up and putting the building together .

 :-[ :D, Sorry guys, I'll do the cypherin in my head.

I think it looks just fine, any way is right that works  ;)

It does feel good to make something out of a tree you worked from harvest to a nice finished product.

I would like to proudly add, that all of the lumber there, other then of course the OSB, and two treated two by tens, was sawn by Tammy and I out of logs we hauled home from a couple different locations.  8)   It is COOL TO HAVE YER OWN MILL!

Well, no pics to show today but we did pick our windows up last night. Got our facia boards on, drip edge and are now ready to shingle. We have a young fewllow ready to shingle, but Tammy wants to give it a go in the morning first. I am sure she will do fine if I can get the confounded nail gun to fire everytime instead of every fifth time.  Dont know nothing about them so dont know what to look at first. :-\

Jeff,

Whenever I had trouble with my air nailer I usually found that I had forgotten to adjust the output of the compressor to what the nailer spec call for. Too little ot too much air and it will not function right.

Good luck,

Ernie Edwards

Tammy and Stacy are doing a great job roofing. I am thier flunky and they bout got me wore out. My arms quit working again so we are taking a rest.  I did some staining in between my shingle cutting job. Trying to get rid of the extra fence stain as it wont winter, and I dont want to waste it. Here is where we are at now.

Good job guys!   8)

 I really like the tiny front porch with the overhang. Is that a tiny little room up in the attic with the window? What are your plans for this mini-house?
