    Default Redneck Staging

    I borrow a phrase from my southern friends... It's been a busy summer - haven't posted much on here. So the last minute(before our rain and cold season) I decide to paint the house, rebuilt the decks and do a little carpentry work before we depart for a cruise.

    Attached are a few pics - along with the tractor use one to qualify. I know I will get remarks from some... but a man has to do what a man has to do.

    Sorry the images don't flow in order.

    Work hard to get it down - play like tomorrow may end!

    I may remember why I went to the other end of the shop, I'm just afraid once I get there I'll forget how to get back!

    A man does what a mans gotta do

    I have put a 28' ladder on top of two flights of actual staging, which were sitting on a deck, so you beat me there.

    Looks nice, the pergola too. Enjoy the cruise.

    Thanks all. The house is almost 200 years old. We bought it 20 years ago and started restoring it. We painted it red - a period and local historic colour. I knew it would fade but we have re-stained it 5 times in 20 years with oil base over new clapboards and shakes. I hand planed a water bead in the clapboard on the front - authenticity - with a wooden period plane... I was younger then!!! Upon our return from Williamsburg a few years ago after a bit of a consult with their in-house architect we (she) decided on the colour - Williamsburg Coffee House Gold. Hopefully it will not fade as fast. The work we did 20 years ago is standing up. I still need to build wood rain gutters and down spots, forge some hardware to support and make some hardware for a gate and landscape etc. We have folks staying in the home so no fear of TBN criminals... but if you want to come I can leave a list of work to be accomplished before you take everything - but we may be back home before you finish unless you are efficient and up to my standards! lol...

    Dave - I believe you trump me!

    PS: probably a thread somewhere!! But we are thinking of all of you suffering from Hurricane Sandy. Sandy missed us but we have suffered a few over the last decade and century. I checked in with our friends in VA and they are fine with a little water damage. Stay safe - better days ahead. PPS: The tall-ship Bounty that sank off of NC was built 7 miles from me in a local shipyard... we are all mourning the lose... RIP for those that go down to the sea...
    Work hard to get it down - play like tomorrow may end!

    Looks great! Love the color too. If you look in the fox fire books I think there is one that shows wooden gutters. Real nice job!

    That is a great looking house. They don't build them like they used to and I wish they would. Older houses just look like they belong in their environment.
