First off, thank you to all of you I know who have served in the Armed services. You are all the reason I have the freedom to move to the woods and build my dreams. Despite the issues I have with this country, it is my home and I respect all of those who have served to protect it and continue to do so.
I had a really fantastic weekend. The Donut King of Port Wing returned for a working weekend at the cabin. There was painting of trim, logging, brush hogging, shooting, BBQ-ing, drinking, and fraternizing. Many things were accomplished. Much fun was had. I have some video that I shot felling a tree and the wife shooting and hitting a target with a 12ga shotgun to come after they get edited. I also missed my first great video with the gopro, after changing batteries the damn thing switched to snapshot mode and took a picture of my face instead of filming us felling a 50 foot tree. I guess I need to fell another dead tree.
We built a tripod to hold the solar shower out of some Aspens we cut down. There are about 6 million of these on the acreage so we are using them as we clear some of the scrub.
We painted a bunch of trim.
We also started installing the trim. Nail guns are amazing tools. I also am getting better with each corner but I can say for sure, finish carpentry is an ART! I am still a neophyte here when it comes to carpentry at this skill level. Just a small difference in the corners really makes a big difference and requires a lot of fidgeting to get it all to fit and look decent.
