2Drinking our coffee this morning, Sandra just found an article from 1985 about snowboarders and just how dangerous they are to themselves and the skiing public. Talking about how ski patrols run them off when they find them. Lol!  Time have sure changed since then.  While we don’t board, and while boarders tend to be younger and some may go faster than what they have control over, there are less than a handful of resorts that restrict their use today and that’s a good thing.  Resorts in general need people using the slopes to stay in business and boards are popular with kids.  But the article was laughable around the panic people had some 30 years ago about the boards’ increasing popularity.


Door trim will be finished today, I think.  Finally. Sandra is staining some more baseboard.  While that won’t go in until we get back from Thanksgiving that’ll allow us to finish that when we get back.  Really very little of that left to run.  

We have a couple thousand nail holes to fill in the trim, literally.  Sandra has offered to begin that as we are beginning to run out of things for her to do.

I’ve got stairs to make for the bunkbeds.  The stringers are weathered and urethaned.  I’ll begin setting those when we get back.  And we have yet to do the landings on the stairs. I’ve made the bullnose for about half of them, will see if I can get the others made today after I was able to get a couple more pieces of doug fir the other day.  Get those stained and they’ll be ready to install, again sometime after we return.  

I’ve been trying to get someone to create the glass curtain wall for the stairwell.  It looks like we may end up using a custom patio door set.  Got an estimate yesterday.  Figuring how to attach it is going to be the last headache.  I’d love to insert it into the opening, but a stair tread is in the way.  And since the walls are ICF, there is 3” of foam and sheetrock in either direction from the corner.  We may have to extend brackets further back on the wall so we can hit concrete for attachment.  Between the manufacturer, and myself, we’ll come up with something.  In order to rent, the wall has to be in place to separate the two living spaces both from sound and egress.  And it would be nice to finally have some positive cash flow from renters!

Speaking of, Sandra will get started on creating a book for their use.  Two actually.  One as to general things about the area, but the main one is to explain the various features and functions of the space.  Things like the microwave drawer and even the kitchen faucet, which no one seems to be able to figure out! The gas fireplace. The need for only toilet paper in the toilets as we are on a pumped septic, yes mundane and unglamorous things such as this.

We have a friend, whose specialty is making commercial video and photography coming in early December to shoot the house for a website and rental sites. We traded work on his house early this year for the shoot.  We’ll be ready by then with everything necessary for him to get that accomplished.

We wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and hope all can spend it with family and friends!

This single tread is in the way of fully inserting a glass wall into the opening. So a partial insert will most likely be used with much of the framework extending out. Not ideal, but not much else can be done
