Monday I got busy after a goof off Sunday...

Image
Here is the insulated zip wall plowed out to allow for studs and sill recesses

Image
Got my free casement windows roughed in !

Image
Forgot that 3"'s are removed to cover the bottom plate the floor and a portion of the frame.

Image
When I installed the windows I planed them out with the studding.... OOPs
I needed to have them plane out with the new sub siding anyway. Maybe when I get the final
siding on it may need to move again . At the moment it is just 4 screws that need to be removed
and shove the window outward.

Image
After about 3 hours I was ready to give up for the day ( I had made my quota of Mistakes)
so here is where I left the project. I did patch in the goof up under the window. :D

Damn the cold full speed ahead.

Loading up the windows and doors to get roughed in this weekend. In the teens so I may be working in short spurts but I will at least make the holes and temporary them in. Want to get things weather tight then I can ignore it on bad days or work on the electric and interior things.

Kinda reminds me of something.....Image

Saturday I was able to complete the sheathing on the north side of the build around the windows. I started on the pooch out by cutting the upper plate. Now I am wondering how to place the upper plate exactly over the bottom plate without leveling the entire trailer. I think with a good tape measure and the ability to place the studs 90 degrees to the floor to help guide me I will be able to do it. The thought of crawling in 4 inches of new fallen snow to level the trailer is so not going to happen. It will not take long to stud it in once the upper plate is in place but at 20 degrees with a 3 degree wind chill I now have a new reason to hate Christmas.

Dear diary......

Well sometimes ya just get damn lucky.

Posted less than an hour and located almost in walking distance of work was 400+ feet of 6" vee grove 1x6 car siding.

Got it at 40 cents a foot maybe a little less as he tossed on some short pieces as extra.

The kicker............................wait for it ................................ It had been removed from a 1909 Nickle Plate railroad box car !!!

What are the odds ?? He even had the unit number plack off of it. It seems this ol boy disassembles and reclaims barns, old buildings, and what ever else he finds. The story he got from the farmer was that the 1918 barn was built over the decommissioned box car that had been being utilized for storage. He was recycling all the barn members and when he got to the boxcar he salvaged all the siding. It is in fantastic shape for 100 year old lumber.

Took a trip down memory lane this morning and I found a long forgotten post in the original caboose thread. Oct 23rd 2012. It showed the caboose the deck and the Depot as a shop. I had totally forgotten that there was such a thought in my mind way back then. Crazy Huh

I did take time Sat to pick up the 425' + feet of car siding. The good point of being frozen stiff with a string of 12 days of below zero weather....
I haven't paid any help lately :lol:

Well yet another find in the snow........

I went by a house in the neighborhood several times in the past few weeks and had spied a full view storm door lying about in the side yard. Yesterday I found the owner out and about with a bud lite in his hand. I pulled up in the snow packed yard and hopped out. Knowing how us beer drinkers think I pointed to his beer and asked.... " If I bring you back another 6 pack (pointing to his beer) may I have that old scrap door. He nodded yes and a few minutes later he had his 6 pack as his $6.34 payment and I was loading the storm door. God I love cheap.
