Edge,That is paint,It turns out there is not much that matches the look of gold out there ,so, therefore that paint was 175.00 a gallon.

And Trex works good ,Azek ,not so much.

With the end of NPS support, I get to work 32 hours a week for volunteer status. At 11 hours a day I still have 4 days a week for bolt replacement. This was one of the projects I got to do this season. No nails, bolts, screws, or other hardware except for the connections to the concrete pads and a couple metal plates holding the three sections together at the top.

With the completion of the sign project I had to find something else to do. I am now the "park bench guy" At the request of "The Boss" I am repairing park benches. So far I get to place them at locations of my choice. The first one went here at the school. The second at Swan Slab, and the third at Church Bowl Tree. The other ones have been going to less important places.

Wowsa! Some very nice stuff.
Phyl, sorry about your delay. Santa Cruz sometimes takes up to 6 months!

Red Tag....Guido!!!! What did you do....ask for forgiveness (i.e. pay a fine) rather than permission?

Guido - funny!

Justin - that will be so great once it's done! The luxury of a master bed/bath...Glad you are getting close.
Phyl

Edited to say that I am completely comfortable living in a rental house, so I don't have to live through construction in the new space...makes a HUGE difference. I did that once before and six months of a "kitchen" in the garage was not fun.

Good Luck on that home up Boulder Canyon!

We met the realtor this afternoon and started the process. We should be moving in by mid-October! First order of business will be to raise the roof on the garage a couple of feet, wire it, and winterize it.

Congrats Edge! Looks like a great homestead in a great location.

Phylp, sometimes a great tactic is to have your engineer inspect your job in lieu of issued permits and gov't inspections, in essence saying, "to hell with the Building Dept for now". You can then cover up your work in the normal construction process without a tear-out/look-see later on.

He/she issues a letter with engineer's stamp for the County wherein he/she is asserting full compliance etc. This can be submitted to the County/City later on after they have finished wasting your time. For jobs that don't involve significant Planning Dept issues like variances, neighbors and so forth.

That is very interesting to know, Peter. Thanks!
Things are moving along, I shouldn't be whining.

Meanwhile, we are de-constructing and recycling. Habitat for Humanity takes so much that would otherwise go in the landfill.

Unfortunately this gem will not be saved:

I remember what they use to say about a remodel of a Victorian in Port Townsend Washington. It required 1 1/2 wives!

Great googly-moogly! Edge, I think I built your garage. Just off the Magnolia road?

Evel, it sure is! Thanks for the fine looking work.

One of my first projects will be to saw the whole thing loose below the top plate, jack the roof up a couple feet, then sister some framing to the existing studs to hold it there. Eventually tapered PT sleepers on the floor and 3/4" ply to level it. Quite a downhill run to that concrete floor.

I signed the offer sheet today and they want to close in 30 days. I should be a Ned Head by early October.

though i am fascinated by the tight wind
blowing through the master's joinery,
i must admit that i've found a unique niche,
in this hyper-structured discipline
that we call building.

i practice curiosity.
in stacking the syntax of my prose,
and in stacking nature's materials.

for words come of silence
and the trees and rocks
they dance with their stressors.

you may see that weave
created a confused beast,
in american culture.

rich ghosts shoved the dream down our mind and hearts,
and we bumble around sick and lost,
as we vehemently pursue nothing
by stealing the face right off tomorr'ws head.

yearning, we are of mild chaos and slight discomfort.
so i build a sturdy though visually wobbly structure,
through which the ghosts ascend sideways;
and i collect handsomely on my efforts.

because people love to lie down
and look around and find curiosities in the corners
of their shelter, which encourages
curiosities in the corners of their mind.

so, though,
i argue again and again with my fellow engineers
and inspectors,
my ultimate audience:
you and i,
applaud my efforts.

so follow me unto the end,
and we'll arrive together nowhere,
just on time.
