Re-painting the computer room in my 1959 Eichler-style home in the Belmont hills with Adobe white on the walls and warm brown on the trim and floor boards:

Man, I'd been sooo looking forward to this phase. So sad to see it done. <sniffle>

Yeah, about the only tool an insulator needs.

If it snowed in California I'd build one of these.

Kick-sleds (in Kick-sled-istan) with a single wheel motor drive for high speed over snow travel.

I still need to fabricate the hardware for the double barn doors, but the install is complete. Still needs paint too, duh.

Damn, homes, it looks like it grew there!
But it appears a dyslexic drunk laid out the shelves. :-)


If'n ya didn't follow the 'Squirrel' thread I mentioned there how the little
bastardos had been chewin' on my electric service. Took it down today to
change the panel and throw away the meter. Those little monsters got some issues!
Does aluminium build healthy bones? Or are they just OCD delinquents?

Does writing computer software for fun count as building something? I haven't used physical force on a project in months.

Reilly, that squirrel damage is bizarre! Why do they do that? I have a million squirrels living in the oak trees in my backyard, and they seem quite happy to stay there - no chewing on wire.

About every two or three years they eat my phone/DSL line.

They are just rats with good PR.

A big thumbs up to Tomkat and Kludge!

Phylp, they only chew the topsides as they're too lazy to hang and chew.
I advise you to get some binos out. They appartently like AL. My electrician
tells me that after Edison changes the service to a CU neutral it will stop
although TGT avers otherwise.

Ditto on the props to Tomcat and Kludge - nice clean solid stuff!


I'm curious, Kludge, as to your method for mounting your structural steel in the center pole on that staircase. The outer edge of those stairs sees a lot of leverage, I'd like to see how you compensated for that.

Did you laminate the handrail? Any photos of that process you'd like to share?

The finished product is a beauty
