While we were in Nashville for Thanksgiving, at the Mutton Bustin house, we paid a visit to a fellow in Sprinfield who has a large bandsaw and cuts live-edge slabs and sells them raw for a really good price.  We bought a half truckload of them!  Problem is, we had flown, so - looks like a road trip will be in order in the future.  The slabs will be used for kitchen shelving and top rails for sections of the railings where we are looking enough space for setting down drinks and small plates.


The rusting of the corrugated metal hasn’t gone as expected.  The cold weather slowed the reaction to almost nil, and then, the effect wasn’t what we were looking for.  Talked to the artist and what we really need to do is a reactive paint system. So, back to square one.  Until we get the paint, we have plenty to keep us busy.  I’ve started to put up the battens to which the metal will be attached to and Sandra has been restaining the beams.  They look so much better.

Gotten three bathroom floors tiled and one more to go. Set the shower drains and got the shower floor membrane installed.  Will start the walls as soon as I cut in the niches.

The main stove was delivered today, after being delayed by 5” of snow on Tuesday.  We got a first hand look at the difficulty in getting deliveries in winter as the truck had to park on the road and I went after it with the Skytrak after cindering the drive.  We have flooring, cabinets and vanities that are arriving in December.  This is not going to be fun.

Sandra on the scaffold staing the beams. You’d never believe she had a knee replacement less than 4 months ago and climbs the scaffold.
Floor membrane on a shower. Same material is used on the walls.

Does your wife get nervous about being up so high? We bought scaffolding, and someone has to paint the eaves/fascia in the next few weeks. I was getting nervous that it would be me!!!!
