Quoting theshepherd:Shep's Weather Report.Nice yesterday.Nice today.Windy and nice tomorrow.Nice the rest of the week.The only good snow is snow North of Valdosta.Edit:Make that Tifton...just to be safe.:)> )))">And no snow expected here either....In fact, it's a nice cool 84F with Wafting Breezes.Been helping these jokers erect scaffolding this morning, and in between, trying to re-design a building for these new Employers of mine.I have to be careful, as they cant seem to grasp that a roof-loft area 19'wide and 38' long, with a max. headroom of 9', is not going to accommodate a master bedroom with full bathroom, and 2 other bedrooms, and the staircase coming up the middle.Looking to see what 2 big dormers (BAH, them again...) will do to increase the useable floor area.There is a saying we use here that goes "He has Whisky Mouth, Mauby Pocket"Means that you see yourself as a rich person, but can only really afford Mauby which is the bitter, boiled bark of a tree made into a drink.....
Quoting RobDaHood:Well,There is Igor. Heard he once ate a whole house.Good morning.
Quoting goofyrider:@Pott: Drastic but knee walls?? Roll the dice:
Quoting RTLSNK:What? Someone is spreading rumors about me again?Isn't that always the way. Or is that the way that isalways isn't? Hmmm, I may have to think about that fora little while.Radar of the US looks dread as Pottery says. Doesn't seem to be moving East very fast so it might not be hereuntil tomorrow night. I hate it when they hit at night.Interferes with SugarBears beauty sleep don't you know.If its really scary she wakes me up. :)
Quoting pottery:Thinking that as well.....Problem is, all the lumber has been cut to size.Based on what? Noboddy knows....So, first I draw a plan and some sections and elevations, then I can see how much of what I need, then I check the lumber in hand.Maybe a block wall at floor level, 3' high ? Or to the cill ? That could work. Changes the thing though. Slabs are down already, and are OK. Would keep the wood off the floor and dry. Thinking aloud here....The packing list says things like.... 2" x 6" length 6'8" - 14'0" 168 pcs.So I dont know at this point what is there.Hope I dont need to buy more, but it's an option.Budget is tight, but my fee is not negotiable. :):))
Quoting theshepherd:You're good for upstairs. No dormers needed, unless you're a glutton for punishment.14' walls. 8' ceiling below.12x19 Master bdr wth 3' closet.2/9x12 bdrs wth 3' closets.3' hallway beside 3'stair.5x16 Bath.Unless they left some rebar sticking up out of the slab, you're going to need to epoxy in some for masonry. I wouldn't go that route.You'll only have about 30/ 14' 2x6s left over for floors after top and bottom plates.Soooo, who needs a roof anyway???:)))
Quoting pottery:That I'm not ! But they are so pretty....
Quoting pottery:Heh !....Just re-read your post.You are staying away from blocks. OK.But the 14' wood is an unknown quant. right now.Lengths vary from 6'8" to 14'. Total pcs. 168.
Quoting RTLSNK:OK, I decided not to have my eyes peeled, we do have apotatoe peeler in the kitchen drawer but SugarBear saidshe had never peeled any eyes before and didn't reallywant to start now. She did want to know if I meant eyebrows, eyelids, or the eyes themselves. She had this odd grinon her face at the time so I think I will watch hercarefully tonight so I don't wake up in the morningwith no eyebrows as a joke. :)
Quoting theshepherd:Well.....alrighty then.:)))I swear the best gift I ever gave myself was Lasek surgery.Matter of fact, that knife thingy was not totally unlike an itty bitty potato peeler.You feel like you have a few grains of sand in your eyes for a couple of days, but after that you're dancing in the rain and you can actually see where you're dancing.:)))
Quoting Ylee:Pottery, your stack of lumber needs one more piece of wood, as in a match.... ;' )
