Well today was a PITA... Got up super early, not wide awake with a chainsaw...lol No, I didnt get cut but did manage to break my left pinky when it got smooshed between 2 monster logs as I was trying to roll them to take a slice off...cold this morning with cold hands didnt make the pain feel any better, my god it hurts still....

Anyways I got a nice load of wood for myself, also got some slices for projects and will get more monster slices when the tree guy fixs his saw, he will make nice clean straight cuts that my little saw cant on the big logs.

also enclosed the pass through and dropped 2 fans that were hitting and installed 2 more fans... busy day, got alot done.

A long time friend of mine came out to clean up the brush in front of the house, got the front done, hope my wife and the kids get the side cleaned up tomorrow, was supposed to be today but they are not feeling well.
I got my sons Jeep out and he drove it for the first time ( had it for 2 years, he was just too small to reach the pedal til now. Took a video and another with my cell taped to the seat... He had lots of fun.
There was a forclosure down the street and got me a nice couch/loveseat too.

Post Re: Home Sweet Home
Applied for the occupancy inspection Monday, Inspection failed over piddly shit like no baseboards/trim (since when has baseboards been a safety hazards? ) anyways I knocked out the list except all the trim work and some exterior painting, hope to knock it all out over the weekend...if anyone wants to help with the trim work, you are welcome to come. A table saw and a compound mitre saw would be handy to bang out a couple rooms at a time ( got the whole house windows and floor trim ) 3 beds, hall, bath, large living room and sunroom, 33 windows....lol

spent 4 hours rebuilding the window sills and installing the trim in the living room. Sunroom next then up to 3 beds, bath and hallway as well as 9 small windows but those windows will need more attention since they are butchered (frames) I have replacement windows installed already, but need to frame them and box them in somehow,,, Ill figure it out as it goes.
