The insurance guy came and went and left good news. Hopefully it won't jack up our premiums, but it looks like a roofing project is in order this fall. Anyone want to have a roof raising?
Peel off the outer wall, thick oak planks that were milled just up the road at the saw mill. It was then that I remembered I had already rebuilt the wall a couple of years ago, but from the inside. That made this portion of the project a little easier. The floor joists were fine, except for a bit on the ends when I trimmed back to solid wood. The floor was sagging 1/2 an inch, so getting the sil plate to slide in required a bit of creativity, but I finally got it done. The sledge hammer helped me work it out. That's what I like about working with wood!!
I was close to getting the OSB hung, but it was 4pm, and I wanted to go ride my bike. No rain in the forecast, so I got cleaned up and headed out for the Liberty Thursday Night Road Ride. Tired legs and body, I knew it was going to hurt.
I have been amazed though, since I got the Wobblenaught fit and pedal stroke instruction, even on the days when I feel totally dragged out, I can still pedal with enough power to ride and sprint it out. I'm impressed and sold!
Have a great day.
