Edge,nice table and truck bed.

Was wondering if anyone was building something lately,I do not get to get away climbing much in the summer months,business is cruising during that time.

Always building and busy as hell.

An addition to my garage. I realize this is over-built but I wanted to use up the last of my beams, which I made years ago; rather than have them rot.

The corner post closest to the camera is 12x14" solid oak. All rafters are 8x8's. Obviously this will not fall down- but again, I wanted to use up the timber.

The entire house is timber frame, as well.

And I thought I over-built!
(But I always try to under-engineer, first)

Wilbeer, nice corbels! Are they gold leafed, or painted? I too have made crown with the table saw, but can honestly report that I never used Trex! Great solution for those pesky curves.

Steve, and you wonder why your body is giving out. You're doing the work of at least 10 pyramid builders there.

Love the bow, Bamboo!

Scratch built model of the Mustang Reno racer, the 'Red Baron', a P51 that crashed on landing during a race in the 1990s.
This one is a group effort, I've got three older ones that still race out of six I've bought or built.
Three of my Red Barons crashed hard or mid-aired while racing.

Progression of work, pre fitting components.

Hey Bushman,

Beautiful work. Where are your contra-rotating props? That was a feature I always liked on the original version.

Time to pick out a beauty from the hangar and go practice for end of month race at Sacramento Area Modelers next Warbird race.
Got to keep my fingers in the sticks weekly to keep a handle on these 160 mph sweethearts.
Building will have to wait.

Counter rotating props would be too cool,
but not stressed about building totally scale for racing with time, money, and attrition being my biggest obstacles.
With wife and work being my primary marriages (in that order) as it were.

I just want to blow off a little stream...
because I'm NOT building anything yet.

We bought a new house which we are going to remodel, but the wait to get the plans to submit to the City is excruciating. First world problem I know - I am beyond grateful to have the resources to do remodeling in the first place, but I just so want to move INTO this house and its going to be months yet! The city is taking about 6 weeks to review plans...

In the meantime, I am doing as much demolition as I can. Filthy, dusty, strenuous, but at least it's some progress. The yard is completely overgrown and I'm working on pulling out overgrown shrubs planted in places that they shouldn't be, etc.

Thanks I feel better now that I've ranted.

Oh Phyl, I know exactly what you mean. I'm adding a master bed and bath and I started the process in February. First had to apply for a variance to reduce my back property setback, which requires a $500 fee and around 6 weeks. It was approved, then did the planning and permitting process. Permits only took three weeks for approval. Finally the second week of August we started building and now it's going quickly.


Step one, getting rid of a Black Oak and soaking the footings area.


Leo Miner is my builder. Leo is an awesome human and fellow climber. He is the type who has done everything, but doesn't act like it.




First two walls up.


Friday we set the trusses


This week we have three inspections and hope to be in by October. My weekends are busy now, but it is flying by.
Oh and my basement is going to be a perfect climbing gym.

I use to have a company called "Red Tag Construction"-no shit!

I got so tired and frustrated with the County of Santa Cruz Planning Office that I swore I would never, ever get another building permit. Think Treasure of Sierra Madre-"Badge, I don't need no stinkin badge."

SIX WEEKS for permit approval?

You obviously didn't remember to fork over the "expedite fee" did you?
