We are determined to keep working outside until it snows or our fingers fall off from frost bite. No seriously, my mother is having health issues and at least the month of January will be busy taking care of her so we are trying to get as many projects completed that require both of us. R will be on his own for a while and I know he has some one man projects that he plans to do.
So tomorrow we need to go buy another 1X8 and try to finish up the back side before the rain starts this next week. We just temporarily nailed the boards in place and R can go back and remove a nail at a time and replace it with a screw. We have found that it works better to use a screw on an angle when attaching to end grain rather than a nail. In the spring I will fill the screw heads in before priming along with caulking.
I hope that everyone is ready for Christmas. I have my shopping completed but I still need to wrap. This year the wrapping won't be too bad because I can't think of any odd shaped items that I need to wrap.....those are the worse. Let's hear it for square shaped boxes. Woo Hoo!
