The last fireplace is nearly finished, as long as I have enough stone!  It’s going to be really close. If I’m short, I’ll have to order a small box of additional which will set back the completion a few weeks.  Definitely trying to limit waste to a minimum and am doing a good job of that, but it’ll be close.


I have four of the eight thresholds set.  Will work on some of the others this afternoon.  It’s a really dirty job as I have to grind down the concrete ICF core to get to the correct level that everything lines up.  A huge amount of concrete dust just gets everywhere. Ugh!

Sandra has nearly all of the kitchen shelves weathered and most lacquered.  As soon as the brackets arrive, we can begin setting them. She has also begun lightly sanding and weathering the components for the bunkbeds.  While the wood isn’t completely dry yet, it’s a jump on them and allows the weathering to take place while we still have decent sun.  As the season progresses, the intensity of the sun continues to drop and will lengthen the time it takes to weather the wood.  Last year, it took up to two weeks during winter to get a somewhat decent amount of weathering.  

I’ll also try to get over to my old landlords shop this afternoon to use his big planer on the 1x material for the coffee tables.  While that may be a later project beyond what is more pressing, I might as well get that done so as the weather turns colder, it’ll be a good indoor project.
