Got a little done.

Base board and she molding.





Top plate covering the sliding door tracks.





Of course I had to take the door down to varnish the door trim. Will get it back up in the morning.

Lynn, I do have a problem. Checking my oak stash, I am short of some 2x6's. :( Guess I will try to fell a standing dead oak tomorrow and throw it on the mill. Got 5 or 6 of them to saw. I will pick out a small one just for 2x6's. ;D

Just a update.

Had did some painting in the living/kitchen area. Finished all of that.

Way back when I started this build, some things new to timber framing I didn't know. :( The big problem I had was when I made the braces. The more I got to thinking about them, the more I hated the ones I installed. So, being a timber frame/stick build, is I took out the braces, I should have no problems due to the way all beams are supported by 2x4 walls.

So, I took a sawsall to them and out they came. Them I made new ones. To install them, I used biscuit jointer into the braces and post/beams with some good glue.









I have them all up. Problem, I have to stain them to match the posts and beams. Still working on a stain for that.

Had a little time to make thresh hole in between the bathroom/ other area out of oak. The difference in height is about a 1/4" in the flooring.

  Starting with some 2x4 oak stock, passing it thru the planner, I then put it to the table saw.





Sanding





Finished product. Just sitting in place till I finish out the pine flooring. Then it will be glued down.



 

Tomorrow I will try to fire up the saw mill. In need of some oak lumber. That, and I will start making some molding to trim out the post and beams.

That threshold is about what I had to do between the mudroom and back porch at the Cabin.  Took a full 2X6 White Oak board and started whittling.  Same situation between the new and old portion of the living room except I used a 1X6 Cypress.  Strangely, I do not have a picture of either.  :-\

The difference between the floors is because I had installed 5/16" hardie board below the vinyl flooring in the bathroom. One of those, I didn't plan for. Oh well. ;D

Sawed up one small oak and had to call it a day last Saturday.

Some 4/4 and some 1".





Today I broke down and started resawing, and planning out a bunch of lumber for all trim work that was needed done. Had a late start due to the coffee pot broke. >:(

Got all door trim hung in the living/kitchen area. Really looking nice. Sorry, didn't have my phone with me, no pictures. :(

I will be attacking the back bed room soon. There is a ton of junk I have to remove out of it and then I have to remove sheetrock off the walls. Reason, have some wiring to run along wanting to change a few things. I will have to frame a closet out too. Really nothing hard. I am also thinking of adding a door in that room that leads out to the back porch. Would be easy to do. This is a guest house and if two couples stay, ones in the back bed room would have a step out the back without going thru the rest of the house.

On a side note. Hopping to get a dusting of snow here by morning. ;D Had two last winter, but it could be 8-10 years before the next snow fall here. 8)

Thanks Army.

Today, I did a clean out off on the porches. Had so much trash like scrap lumber. A lot to the point I couldn't use the areas. >:(

Then did a little corking inside.

After that, it was time to try out staining the braces to match out. Had fixed up a batch of vinegar 1 qt and two small pads of steel wool pulled apart. Been mixing it up every day for about 8 days and testing it.

Braces before stain.





After





Dang close match. ;D Once I clean and wipe down the posts and beams, it will match.

Tomorrow, some varnishing of trim work.

How are those angle braces attached?

In the last pic the brace on the left shows the pith.
I really like the the way that looks.

1" dowel pins and glued.

I did saw up enough 4/4x6" pine boards for the front porch last Saturday. And then yesterday I fought a big SYP log. Had to trim it down a bunch just to be able to saw it up.





After the fight that I think I won. :D Was in need of 2x4's.

Thanks. The last couple days I had to clean out the back bedroom. Two trailer loads to the burn pile. :o Record breaking temps here. :o Talking hitting 82F, but having a cold front to come in tonight. :(

Today, I ripped down some sheetrock. :( Had to due to needing to do some rewiring. :( Got that done and also finished the rough in wiring.









Still have more stuff I have to go thru. A lot of loading ammo stuff and boat parts.

Sawed up some 2x4's, but they are still to wet to use. :( I need around 20 to build a closet. :( Guess if I have to wait, it would put me back a long time. >:( So, maybe I will just go :'( buy some tomorrow. :'( That hurt. :D

Got the closet framed in yesterday. Cost me $60 for 2x4's and a box of framing nails. >:( DanG box store framing lumber is junk. >:( I hand picked and out of the ones I did, I would of rejected a 1/3 if I sawed them up. ;D

Fixing to head back and hand insulation. Maybe start hanging sheetrock tomorrow. This room will go very fast, I hope. 8)

I sure agree with that about the lumber thing. When I framed my shop with box store 2x6 I couldn't believe the bad quality. I had some dry milled lumber and things went better with it. I wouldn't ever try to sell that quality.

For sure about box store lumber. :( How in the world will a house stand 50+ years building with the junk they are selling?

Anyway, that room has new insulation. Took me longer that I expected, but done. Looking at the weather, I am hoping that I can order some sheet rock for Monday. It's going to be iffy with rain next week. :(

Forgot, it was 38F here this morning. Cold for me. Fired up the wood stove and with in a hours time, I was peeling everything off down to a Tee shirt. Bad thing, my 30+ year old staple gun broke. :o Had to run and buy a new one.
