Thanks Lynn. Got the room all primed out. Will paint the ceiling tomorrow. That will be white, but still haven't picked a color for the walls.

Been painting and got it all done. 8) And yes Lynn, I did pick the color. ;D





Today, I started boxing in the windows. Problem there, I had to shut it down due to rain. :(









Just have to add the outside trim.

I got to order some more knives for my planner. It's going to take just under 200 sf of flooring. Will be the same flooring as the kitchen/living room area.

Have another problem. Most of the oak I have sawed up is reading around 13-14% moisture. :(  Thinking of moving all inside the house and just run some fans on it 24/7 till I can get the moisture down below 11%.

So much for finishing the back bedroom. The more I got to thinking, the more there will be a change. I did finish up all painting, wood trim around the windows and installed plugs and switches.

Back to the change. This is outside the bedroom.









Inside in the room.





Boy, did I screw up or what? Even more so for a change I want to do. >:( Yep, I didn't center the door way to start with. Not to bad of a change/fix. The biggest change I want to do is add some timbers to the area outside of the bedrooms. By doing that, it would carry off from the kitchen/living room areas. ;D

So, this afternoon, after figuring out what I will have to do, I sawed up a couple beams. I will saw up what else that is needed tomorrow.

Big reason I am going to try this, if it works, I am wanting to do this in my house on a grand scale. 8)

You got that right Lynn. :D One of the logs I sawed up yesterday had to be the nastiest logs that was ever sawed. Sucker had mushrooms growing off it. A lot of punk wood. Was a short log, but more then long enough to get a 4x10 out of it. I have around 6 more standing dead oaks that need to be felled. Might do that today. Having a very slow start to my day already. :(

Wrap it up yesterday. Just need to stain them out with vinegar/steel wool mixture and add the braces.









I like it and it made the area to match the kitchen/living room area. 8)

Yesterday I had to take it easy. Was hurting from the day before working up in the attic. Had to install a heater/vent in the bathroom ceiling. Very tight area. :o

So, I had went back into the kitchen and address something that needed to be done.

Before





It is hard to see, but I didn't complete cover the walls above the window and back door with tile. So that was what I did.









Just need to grout it out now.

Another step Paul.  I like your "cranker-upper" beam raiser.  8)

Just a little update.

Did finish grouting out the kitchen. Been doing a lot of dirt work outside. We been having some good dry cool weather. ;D Had many tree stumps that I need to dig up along with extending my pond. I need the dirt to put all around the guest house. Only problem there, with the Mississippi River high, once one digs a couple feet down, overnight it fills with water. :o

Rain coming towards the end of the week. So I been moving, stacking dirt. Moved about 300 yards yesterday and have a 100 or so let to do today. Raising the area around the guest house is a big job. It's bigger then a ac. Going to raise that by about a foot. A lot of dirt. :o Sure glad I don't have to buy that much dirt. ;D

Will get some pictures today.

Small up date.

Really haven't been doing much. The old ticker went into cardo shock and ending up in the hospital for a few days. :( All is well now and was flat out told to slow down and take it easy, which I did.

Yesterday, I had climb on the backhoe to dig a line from the house to the power pole for under ground service. Had to be 3' deep.





So I went closer to 4'. ;D





With the water table so high, you can see how fast water was coming in. :o It is all filled back in. Something about throwing $300 into a hole and cover it back up with dirt. :D

Today, got out early and packed dirt. Then started grading to were I had added dirt in the front of the house. Wasn't a good idea. >:( Had hit a area that I dug out a stump and before I knew it, the tractor bottom was in dirt. :D Front to back. :D Had to use the backhoe to lift, pull it out. Called it a day after that mess and went cut the grass. :D

Picture of my poor little old tractor.

I had wondered where you were and what you were doing??  Now I don't know whether to admire you or fuss at you??  I do want you to finish that project so I can come to see you and it, but I would prefer that you were still kicking. 

I really do understand so keep at it, but do pace yourself.  :)

I am really taking it easy. First hint of feeling somewhat bad, I shut it down for the day and rest. Of course the wife is watching like a hawk.

Yesterday, the area that I added the post and beams, I had to paint the walls. Took about an hour and after that I did shut it down for the day.

Maybe today I will go stain out those post and beams.

Been taking it easy, so I been doing small little projects.

Got a dump station in. ;D






Installed a ceiling fan in the back bedroom.





Got another just like that for the front bedroom.

Stained out the new post and beams.









Once I clean up the older beams and post, they should match.

Also, been doing a few honey do's around the house to keep the wife off my case. ;D
