Drove up to Pueblo Wednesday to pick up the stone order at the distributor that finally arrived.  Stone for the downstairs fireplace, stone for the top of the outdoor fireplace and stone for the door thresholds.  So now it’s time to get to work on it.


Started running the downstairs fireplace today.  Got it up to the level of the hearth and will let it set overnight so the thinset can cure.  Will set the wood hearth on it tomorrow and begin to move up on the stone.

Thresholds will be next.  Get those finished and we’re closer to a final inspection as well as an inspection for the architectural compliance.  I need the latter to get our deposit back.  

I got a small load of steel on Tuesday.  Some 1/2” square tubing and flat stock.  A piece of flat will be used on one last barn door, bit the other was ised to make a cover grate for the sewer pump.  The pump is at the bottom of a 4’ diameter culvert.  I have needed to get it done for some time so no one can fall in.  Took about an hour to build, cutting the steel and welding it all together.  Another item taken care of.

Sandra and I have been  working on the rough cut lumber, even though it hasn’t fully dried.  Got the shelving cut to length, then I used a powered hand planer to get it semi-smooth.  Then Sandra takes the orbital sander to it.  The 1x material has dried pretty quickly, as one would expect.  I keep reversing the exposure to minimize cupping.  Weathering has taken place on several and lacquer is going on.  

I’ve gotten all of the 6x6 planed, as well as quite a bit of the 2x6.  These I’ve used the planer to try to create a look of handscraping.  We’ll see how well it turns out. It’d be neat to begin the first bunk bed in a couple weeks.  

And lastly, we set the backsplash on the downstairs kitchen.  Took a day to get it up.
Sandra has since grouted it.  It’s white subway tile and brightens up that level a lot.  

So, a lot of things in the works, and one has gotten finished.

One other thing that got done was connecting a propane line to a new griddle, eliminating the need for a refillable tank.
