Re: OT: Building in isolated location

All-- A tour of the home site. I began on the lower level, next to the break in the ridge above the cliff. I videod this twice, the first time using the GoPro's "Super Wide" setting and the second time using the "Linear" setting, which is something of an approximation of what you...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

reubenT and All--

reubenT, let me know how you solve the deer/greenhouse problem. We are facing the same issue.

If the greenhouse had solid sides up to three feet and it was raised--say six feet--and the only access was a set of steps, would that solve it?

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

All-- I created this latest Construction Update video on an overcast day. Forgive the lighting! https://youtu.be/pJ9KD9RUh1c In other news, I caught another beautiful little bobcat on my game camera. He was strolling about the deer/coon/turkey feeder. He (or maybe she, I don't know and wouldn't want...

neanderman--

Forgive me for not reading this entire thread. Time! I ain't got it!

If you use Elmer's glue, use it VERY sparingly as it will bleed through the felt.

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

Tom— Thank you for the ideas. I’ll remember them. I’ll add some 2” straps to my strap purchase. I have a new RAM 3500. I regularly pull 14k pounds . . . tractor and big skid steer. My lathe, mill and saws don’t come anywhere near that (unfortunately!). Probably 4,000lbs, total. I’ll add all your goo...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

pete— I’m sitting by a dying fire on a perfect night approaching midnight and logged in using my iPhone! I don’t have any straps, so all of them will be new. I’m used to checking the load (chains) after a few miles when hauling my tractor or skid steer. Of course, I also check them at every stop. I’...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

All-- Guess what time it is? Give up? I thought so. It's time for me to start THINKING about moving my machinery into its new home! Let's think about the lathe. It is bolted to a very sturdy pallet. The only way I can figure moving it is to situate it with its axis parallel to the length of the trai...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

All-- The lower level electrical and plumbing are all roughed in. We are working on the upper level now. And the garage. The garage bathroom (shower, vanity, toilet and laundry room) are going to be placed and sheetrock put up. So, the next time we visit we will not have to rent a room! Even with no...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

All--

In this update you will see progress on the metal roof. (By the time of this writing, it should be finished.) Also shown is the beginning of the 3", closed cell spray foam insulation in the house along with some ERV duct work.
