We did a ton this year but this has to be my favorite. My parents helped us build this in our family room.  

Almost finished building myself a new smoker, will get it done tomorrow before seasoning it and hopefully getting some ribs cooked. Sunday morning   Monday afternoon   

The biggest thing I haven't been able to fix so far is the lack of a simulator.

SuperSpeed protocol had to take a day off yesterday. My son asked me to help him redo plumbing and tile work. While he set the tile, I did the cutting with the 'wet' tile saw. Hot, humid 11 hour day, not counting the hour and a half drive time each way. I was beat!

We didn't quite finish the tile work - but enough that he could do the rest. Pic of the back wall  - notice all of my fine tile cuts 😎

Thanks - he also learned a few new plumbing tricks I taught him. I love Pex and Shark fittings! 

 

Edit: The bathroom is on the second floor and the tile saw was outside on ground level. My thighs are killing me from all of the up and downs for the individual cuts. It was worse than being on a 'stairmaster'

Any plumbing I have to do these days is either pex or shark bites. Got a new washer did 2 shark bite fittings to a single handle h/c valve. So easy. No more flux for this guy!

Demoed a room today and my parents came to help. The person who remodeled years ago put dry wall over these beautiful planks. No insulation behind them and no closets. I'm turning an office and bedroom into a master suite and putting a closet in the other room. The room where I will be adding the closet is the room in the picture below. The boards on all 4 sides will be trimmed up and used as trim, a coffee table, and other things I see desired to make out of old boards from I'm thinking the 1920s or earlier.

A couple runs through a planer and or a rough sand with an orbital and you’ll get a ton of mileage out of those boards. Nice treasure find right there Tom.
 

I’m sure your electric bill will thank you as well when you’re done with that room.

My oil usage should go down too. I have a feeling my lower level is the same way. This year two rooms on the second and next year the other two. I'm planning on having it my own style and way in 5 years. There are a few that are split so I can even do a live edge piece of I want and I have a nice plan for a coffee table for my living room from one. I want a coffee table with a cigar humidor built into one side and something nice in the other side, you know for home protection.

Unfortunately a bunch of them are cracked and a few have older water damage so I won't have as much as I was hoping for but more than enough to do what I want. I might try to make some tables with it and sell them to recoup some money.

One of my Dads hobbies was furniture building. I would help him occasionally but I wasn’t into it like him. We would do trips to Vermont looking for old useable wood for his “projects”, wide bar wood was high in his list. Anyway he would take mildly split boards and use them for tables and on the bottom side he would make butterfly pieces and stabilize the cracks. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about it’s old method.
Have fun , great project!

I've thought about using epoxy on them and making tables like that but I have a reclamation place local and I have enough intact wood to do what I need that I'm hoping they take the split stuff so it doesn't get wasted.

Finally got a project done on the house. I had a basement step give out on me a few weeks ago so I replaced them sooner than expected. It was a pain to get the stairs level since they are so steep with it being an old house. Salvaged a few of the old steps that were in good shape and made 3 new ones. Finishing demo on the bedrooms this week and then time to rebuild.

I am exhausted from shoveling and wheelbarrowing 4 cu yards of gravel and 3 cu yards of topsoil. The backyard is now level though. Tomorrow I am installing sod.

Back yard was woods when we moved in. Cleared it and have brought in over 250 yards. Almost done but not quite there.

Holy cow, 250 yards. Hoping you had some heavy machinery to help.
