Thanks, it a new journey whenever I get a chance to work on it. How is that .22 Ruger doing since we threaded the barrel on it?





Here are a few more pics. Overhead lifting sucks and takes me some time hanging the purlins. These will for attaching the old barn tin for the ceiling. Once I get that done I'll start interior framing of the rooms. Oh joy.

Thanks, lots of perspiring as well!

Getting around to interior framing. Started with the dining and utility rooms. Hung a piece of tin also just to get an idea.

Haven't updated in awhile but I have been busy with other things lately. Just seems that there isn't enough time to go around these days. Getting into framing the rooms. Nothing earth shattering but a little progress none the same. Will be back at it in the next few days.

I got the stairs done to the loft. Also installed the floor there too. That was a lot of work and heavy lifting. Used 1 1/8" Advantech sheeting. At 126lbs per sheet I took a little over 2000lbs up there. The loft will most likely be a another living/TV area. It's right at 400sq ft of space.








Decided to but a gable type ceiling in the dining room. I laminated three 2x10's together to give me a center base. Will most likely install some type of wood, something in the lines of shiplap. Wife wants an arch for the entry way.










We're in the dog days of summer right now and boy is it ever hot. Drinking lots of water and running a big fan trying to stay cool. Will continue to keep putting up a few boardsup.

Call me crazy but I have been felling some oaks the past days in this 100+ degree heat we have been having. This will someday become cabinets, built ins and possibly some doors for the barndo. I took it to a local guy to have it milled into lumber this morning.









I plan on air drying this but if I can find a kiln that is somewhat close and reasonable I will go tat route.

They certainly do. I used them several years ago to dry some spalted pecan. I going to see how many bd ft this batch produces so I give the an idea. I believe they are drying mesquite on an every day basis.

not sure if i missed what you plan to do to your floors but if you are going stained concrete anywhere i would take the extra time to throw down some ramboard in those areas.. there was a thread on here recently where a guy had his stain turn out bad bc the builder wasnt keeping the jobsite clean from mess while building.
