Rain quit long enough to do some cabin wrapping.
Just saw a huge coyote on the road outside my camp. Couldn’t get a picture. I’ll be sure to keep my camera ready for the next time.
With the Autumn rains here I put up a tarp for temporary storage.
And covered my building materials.
These deer sure didn’t care I was there. And archery season opens Saturday.
I removed the shelves.
The OSB was in bad shape.
But the yards of 1 x 4s and 2 x 4s will come in handy.
Taking some time off while my daughter is back home visiting from Chicago. Got to spend today target shooting with her. We practiced with her Ruger .380 LCP and Kahr 9mm. She also shot her bows and the Marlin .22. I sighted in my 30-06. Beautiful day at Pithole Paradise.
With all due respect to DuPont Tyvek I have gone with Prime Wrap for 1/3 the price.
Also got lots of insulating board from my Uncle Bob.
I used two cans of foam insulation and sealed any unwanted daylight leaking through. Bugs, mice, moths and spiders have tried to make this their home. Now that I’ve sealed it I also set off a bug bomb to get any stragglers. Of course I believe this will keep them out. There’s just no way they can find a way around it.
I finally removed the windows, caulked the seems and fastened them down permanently. I think I might have overdone the caulking.
Still some framing to do on the inside but I can do that with the windows in.
And finally. The last window (for now) is installed. I’m not yet sure which side I am putting the smallest one.
Several improvement. First off. The well is working. I tried it many times and it only would drag the generator down. Then my dad came out and I went to show him how it didn’t work. Sure enough. It worked.
Still runs a little red but I think that will clear up. It hasn’t run for almost five years.
I also got a compressor to run my brad gun.
Plus a propane lantern and camp shower
