about 11 hours ago

Bottom of the wall accessed and cleaned out. Sill board not too rotted after 20+ years. New plate screwed to plastic pipe uprights at base.
about 9 hours ago

Bottom piece of wall upright to screw foam to installed. Next 2 uprights cut and ready to go in. Coffee break required and being taken now.
about 9 hours ago

Have decided to build a platform to put the washer and drier on rather than continue using the cement blocks. Got all the parts cut.
about 9 hours ago

Will put it together as soon as the bottom row of foam is put in. Hopefully just after lunch. Which will be delayed as breakfast was late.
about 9 hours ago

Bit by bit, I think it’s starting to come together. Keep waiting for the other shoe/boulder to drop and require it to all be redone…
about 9 hours ago

Coffee breaks over, time to return to an inverted position.
about 9 hours ago

Lunch break. 3 more uprights to cut and install and then I can start fitting the first of the blueboard panels. Highwire (ladder) work next.
about 8 hours ago

Battery recharge break. Meant to put it on while I ate lunch and forgot it, so now when I’m raring to go it dies and has to be recharged.
about 7 hours ago

All the lower tier (up to 8′) bits along the curved wall are now in place. Was screwing in some end wall (south) belting/nailers whatever
about 7 hours ago

when the battery went dead. Got about 3 of those pieces to go and then get to start fitting the blueboard. Getting closer anyway…
about 7 hours ago

Got the first piece of blueboard in and am gonna have to put another cross piece in. Forgot the blueboard was 9 feet rather than 8. 😦
about 6 hours ago

Shoulda measured it rather than assuming. Has been so long since I bought it I totally forgot it was 9′ outside sheathing.
about 6 hours ago

Oh, well, it’s only time. And another cross piece will make the shell stronger. He says to himself trying to convince self not to be pissed.
about 6 hours ago

First tier is ready to get plastic and then blueboard. Tis about time, too. Taking a break prior to getting the plastic out and starting.
about 5 hours ago

At this rate doesn’t look like it’s all gonna get done tonight. May get far enough along to get the washer and drier back in place. Hope so.
about 5 hours ago

Would really like to get the tub/shower enclosure back in place too but suspect that will have to wait till tomorrow.
about 5 hours ago

Got the plastic up on lower section. First piece of blueboard in place but not screwed in. Getting closer but ain’t gonna get done tonight.
about 4 hours ago

Second piece of blueboard in place. Had to take a break and find more screws. Think I have enough to get the last piece of blueboard up.
about 3 hours ago

Think I am missing a bag of them but have been unable to locate it. Like that’s something new around this black hole…
about 3 hours ago

Got the last piece of blueboard put in. Still need to finish one section of the bottom south wall to be able to get the washer & drier

Gonna call it a night as far as construction goes. The stuff that needs to be done next is gonna have to be done from a ladder

and I’ve done all of the standing on one of those that my tired old bod will tolerate today. Will start on the fun overhead stuff tomorrow.

And that’s about the size of the day. Hoping to get it finished tomorrow. Or close enough that we can shower again anyway. Changing the shelving and moving the door and all that will be a later project.
