I was really glad I had purchased the book before I started. It really helped, especially since this was my very first house to own, much less build ourselves.

We’re at a stage where things seem to be coming together pretty quickly.  The top rails on the deck were started and finished in a few days. Went to big blue to get redwood 2x6 but their inventory shown online didn’t match.  They had none in stock.  So I decided to get douglas fir, also pretty weather resistant, which they had in 2x12.  Ripped them down on the table saw and then ran each through the table saw again, twice on edge at a slight angle to create a a double cant, or roof-like shape on the top side, to shed water and create a nicer profile than a simple flat board.  After sanding and staining, they, and some live-edge boards that Sandra had prepared were all installed over the next few days.  Really makes for a finished look.


More door casing was prepared over the weekend as well.  I think we’ve got the final pieces done, just need weathering, lacquering.  We’ll find out when we install, if we have it all.

Ordered 400’ of small crown for the tops of the door moulding.  It arrived Friday and yesterday Sandra applied the weathering.  She should be able to lacquer it in a couple of days.

I’ll start the tile backsplash in the main kitchen today.

And the big thing that happened - we have living room furniture!  We had ordered it in lat June and last night it arrived.  Used the Skytrak to get it up to the third floor, where the guys offloaded and set it up.  Reeeealy nice to have something to sit on!

Top rail installed.
Section of live edge top rail. Used to create a larger surface to allow for drinks to be set upon. Backsplash of powder-coated steel cutouts to prevent glases from being down over the edge
We had a visitor early morning last week. A good sized black bear foraging for food. Was really a beautiful animal with a gorgeous coat
