its been real wet here too    glad you are feeling good enough to work a little now :)

Well thanks, but as of this morning, I'm coming down with the third cold this winter. >:( My immune system is very low due to heart failure. :( Got a doctors appointment Monday with my heart transplant team. I'm sure they are not going to be happy again. ;D I been fighting this over 6 years and I live with the can do attitude. That has been kind of going down hill the last few months.

Well, I was right about the doctors not being happy. ;D Have  to go back once I get over this DanG cold. Finely the fever broke. ;D Got out yesterday and did a little more on the roofing that I started. Weather was a nice 75F and sunny with little to no wind. ;D Going to try and finish out that side today. Only have about two hours work left. I will get some pictures today.

Thanks MM. Got out yesterday and finished the one side and had to call it quits. DanG cold is now in my chest. This is not good at all.

Anyway, different color roof. ;D

 

 

But, as I did to the main roof, I will be spraying it with elastomeric coats in white. Suppose to save up to 15% energy.

Just a update. Got sheetrock in, but still have to hang it. Was going to buy a machine to do that, but a cheap one cost over $200 and once finished, I hope I would not need it again. :D

So, I will just build one. ;D

I also copped some granite counter tops. More then enough for the camp. Paid $125 for it. ;D More and more, the wife wants us to move to the camp. :D

Guess you are a Yankee. :D Gypsum board I guess, if you are a Yankee. :D

Started building the lift today. With a saw mill, why not make it out of wood? ;D Oak box tube and a double 2x4 pine for the lift section and legs. Got $6.14 so far into it. ;D

 

 

 

 

 

 

It will reach 10'. I will be adding some caster wheels to the base which I have on hand. Then make the spread bars to handle the SHEETROCK. :D

Using a lot of oak and pine for the flooring. ;D

 

 

 Going to have expose oak beams too! Walnut, what is that? There might be maybe one tree within 100 miles. :D

Finish the sheetrock lift. Got wheels and hope to put it to use next week. ;D

I can pin it in this direction for ceilings.

 

 

Or drop it down for the walls.

 

 

The frame is 45"x8'. When using it for the walls or loading it, I had cut a slot on the bottom of the frame to help loading.

 

 

All rooms other then the bathroom, I will be installing 1/2x4'x12' sheetrock.

Oh my, I have done my share of sheetrock.  The best part of each job was when the job was completed.  Nice lift.

Yep, did my share too! Did my house that is 2750 living with 9',12,14 and 17' ceilings. Was not fun at all. ;D

Make a short rabbit hunt yesterday which took a lot out of me. Took a nap at 2pm and woke up at 4:30 this morning. :o Feel like a new man. :D

Awesome lift. Meant no disrespect. I just try to avoid sheetrock as much as I can. I've done too much. Inside joke I guess. I'm just a westerner who prefers wainscoting. I've been really enjoying this thread. Keep up the good work fish.

Sure has been. Has been good at times for my health. 10X better then just sitting around and watching TV. DanG shame I'm not finished, but when you are retired, one never has enough time to do all the things that need to be done. :D

Been wanting to get the sheetrock up, but my son and SIL has been tied up with their work. So I been working on my saw mill shed.

Well yesterday, I got out and did a little work on my new saw mill shed. Added a window and trimmed the lap siding. I will get back on this project in time.

 

 

After getting that done, I got the wife to help me hang a couple sheets of sheetrock in the camp. My home made lift worked great. ;D Going to try and hang a couple more today. Cold here, so yesterday I had the wood stove fired up and will do that again today. ;D

This is the kitchen area.
