    nonono, the War Dept memo specifically said "Don't block the sun with all those sticks". So they are just small enough to keep the dogs out

    That internal temperature difference in the lump could possibly be a clot. If it persists get it checked out ASAP.

    Good job on the garden fence..

    Rick,
    I got it....yeah.........it's a garden and needs sunlight. Keep the care up on that leg. I had a blood clot once in my left leg above the knee and it no fun.

    Ok, it's time to finish off the house(no...really). I figure a week inside & a week out, then I can move on to the other zillion things on the farm. First was to finish the spiral stair. I had this idea involving a #3 washtub to cannibalize and trim the floor opening to the basement. First i cut the bottom out of the tub, scoring it first with a razor knife, then used an old kitchen knife & tapped it all the way around with a hammer:

    Then I cut the sidewall and flattened it out...kinda. I didn't realize the sides were not straight, but angled out, so it's impossible to get it straight....each end curves as it's flattened. Anyway I just went with it and this is what it looked like before tacking it in:


    I used two sidewalls, both curving up from the landing, then back down in the middle:

    The landing side:


    Then I used barn tin to cover up the floor trusses as you walk down the stairs:


    At first I was not happy with the washtub sides. But I get this weird feeling that I'm Captain Nemo and I am going down the conning tower of the Nautilus So I guess it's growing on me.

    Then I worked on the top of the stair. I had this really cool looking cedar log, but it was too short to reach the roof from the top of the stair in it's normal vertical orientation. So, I walked over my whole property and even cut & hauled another cedar, but it just didn't look as neat as the short one. So, I drug it up the steps and ended up inverting it. I think it looks neat, Les says it looks like a someone climbing up to the ceiling

    I finished off the loft with a mirror in the bathroom & a couple of barn typ Z doors for the storage area:

    Then I started on the open gable end of the master bath:


    More barn tin:

    Les picked out some green stained glass to insert into the tin. It was quite interesting getting it to fit. First I cut the hole in the tin:


    I had to cut the frame over the V grooves of the tin so it would lay flat, then I had to temporarily screw this frame together so I could flip the tin and attach the inside frame to hold the glass. I notched the inside frame so it didn't pinch the glass:

    Then it all went up:


    Inside the bathroom is not so nice, so I think the tin in here will get painted:


    I still have the inside gable to do in the master bedroom & sliding interior barn door...more to follow..........
