Been taking it very easy. Doctors appointment kind of went the way that ended with higher doses of meds. DanG Entresto has my blood pressure all over the place. :( Just have to give it some time for me to adjust to it.

I have been doing a little work. Mostly wood trim. Finished out the area outside the bedrooms and bath. Got the door casing all done. Everything is varnished.

Sorry, didn't get any pictures.

Well, I got out and floated the bathroom. Took 5+ hours and a box of mud plus 2/3 of a bucket. :o I'm beat and my plan for the rest of the day, drink a couple beers and chill. ;D

This weekend I was able to finish out the front bedroom somewhat. Well, all sheetrock work done along with shooting it and painting it. All I have to do is the window wood casing and hang the door.

Going to try and spray a second coat on the roof today. Good warm dry weather for the next few days is a good time to get this done.

Couldn't get up on the roof. DanG PB was way to low and the wife saw it. So, I went into the bedroom and installed all switches and called it a day. Been napping the better part. :(

I am assuming that you meant BP as in blood pressure?  Anyway, take care of yourself my Friend.

Yep, DanG blood pressure. It's been running around 90/50 and taking a toll on me. Even upping my meds hasn't helped. Got to call New Orleans today to see what can be done. >:( Just don't know if the old ticker is calling it quits now. It's just leaving so DanG tired all the time. >:(

Going to try and get something done today. Maybe a little sanding in the bathroom. No ladders, just don't want to take a spill. ;D

Thanks Lynn. They made a adjustment on a med that help a little. So, I been taking it easy. Been dealing with a big sweetgum twin tree the fell from a storm. Been burning it in place. Real big sucker. Heck, I don't own a saw big enough to cut it up. :o Got it down in size now. ;D

I even got a little sawing done on some SYP. 4/4x6" and some 2x6. Will be using that as decking on the porches. Still have more to saw up, maybe next week.

I also started hanging some J channel. I will be using vinyl for the eves and porches. Was going to use Hardie Board, but changed my mind do to the weight.

I took the vinyl down on my porch and put up cypress bead board. Stained and sealed each one before putting it up and it was easier than doing vinyl in my opinion. Looks way better than vinyl too. Just a thought. I lived with vinyl for 20 years then pulled it all off and installed cement board everywhere there was vinyl except the porch ceilings.

I would love to go that way, but all cypress trees are off limits on my place. It has been that way when my granddad didn't saw them way back in the 1920's. Got some real big ones on my place. ;D

Anyway, started doing a little trimming outside.





Yes, Hardie board. Looking at painting it only once.





Will have to pressure wash the complete house before painting. Got hot fast today and called it quits around noon. I have all the back done and will start working on the sides maybe tomorrow.

Thanks guys. I do try to take care of myself. At 60, there is very little that don't hurt every day. :(

Anyway, have anybody ever deal with Dottie, you know 811? >:( What a pain in the backside. >:( I called the last Tuesday and gave all info. Thursday, had some lines marked, but one I needed was across a pipeline. When you call that number, they have 48 hours to respond. Got a auto call back, saying no need for them to mark the line. >:( Knowing better, I call them Friday. Got a call back this morning from them and told them what is what. 35 minutes later, two guys showed up. ;D They mark the line. The two lines are about 6' down. Bad thing, I had to grind off the teeth on my bucket on the backhoe. Can't dig across the pipeline with teeth. WTH? I planning only to dig down about 18". This is for a 2" sewerage line to a settlement pond.  And to throw more in the works, no digging can be done unless a crew is on the job. :( I worked as a union worker just about all my life, but this takes the cake. :D Only good thing, they asked when I wanted to dig. Told them first thing in the morning. :D They should be here at 7:30 am. Well I hope.

Well, the pipeline crew was at my house for 7:30. ;D All went fine and the line is done across the pipeline. ;D


Settlement pond





Just another 300'+ to go.





With the heat that we been in the last week, my work days are getting shorter. DanG 92F is not easy on me. :(

I did get some more trimming up with just one more side to do. Can't get the peaks. My SIL is using my 40' ladder. When he finishes up with it, he will bring it back and also finish out the peaks. ;D

Got back on it today and just about finished trimming eves out.





Well, as far as I am going to climb a ladder. ;D By 9:30, I called it a day. :(

I did add some drip edge that I was going to use all around. Not happy with it.





That is a 4" wide trim. It's coming off the first thing in the morning. I went and picked up some new trim that I should be happy with, I hope. :D

Wow, I just spent the last few days reading this post from start to now. Fishfighter, this build is amazing and I am very impressed with everything you have done. I am hoping to start my cabin build here in a few months or next spring depending on the clean up I have to do at my property. Your post has given me lots of inspiration as well as ideas on how to do things. I look forward to seeing the end of this build, I hope your health turns for the better.
