    I demoed a 20×16 pergola today…Well, the posts are still there, but the rest is down. I’m picking up the lumber to rebuild in the morning.

    Wasn’t feeling well over the last few days but I did manage to finish resurrecting the hack post. Left the top a few inches long so I can cut to fit on site

    Polished metal most of the day, tedious and dusty.

    Still laying tile. Should finish the last room this morning. Then the fun begins with the grout.

    Just about to go out to the shop to see how the glue up went. I bonded some plywood pads to the faces of my pipe clamps to act as built in cauls and to help them stand better. It is a pain trying to activate a pipe clamp and hold a caul on either side at the same time. Not a one person job, so I try to get the wife to help when I can. She holds the cauls while I tighten the clamps.

    Question….Does this make her a caul girl?

    With a slight modification the pipe clamps now have built in cauls and a better base for them to sit on so they don’t roll over.

    Really good idea! Sometimes those clamps can be a real PITA.

    Took a chance it wouldn’t rain and finished the siding on the upper part of my shed build. I was worried about how it would arrive at the bottom of the soffits, but it came very close to even along the whole length. I still have to trim the top with a strip of PVC, and there are some little short segments of siding to do around my front entrance, but that’s the tail end of the siding to be imstalled. Thank goodness…..I have had my full of it for now! It’s been a great learning experience and it went well albeit way slower than imagined, but I need a break from it.

    I removed the remaining nine full siding boards from the pallet of siding that has been in my driveway since mid December last year and cleaned up around it. So glad to see that gone now. The remaining amounts are now stacked in my shed. 11 extra full length pieces along with a bunch of 52 in cutoffs.

    I coulda mitigated the cutoffs but I decided not to for a variety of practical reasons. Sped things up and seemed pointless to conserve fulls knowing I could use the cutoffs on future builds I have slated. In doing so, it also made that backside look real pro for the neighbor eye appeal. No random joints all over the place, just gradual staggered lenghts evenly distributed all the way up. I had already used my oddbal segments leftover from otjer work on the lower half below the fence line, and I’m happy with that. While I am disgruntled with the neighbors and their antogonism thru this shed build effort, I want it to look as pro as I can make it also even if it’s areas I will seldom see.

    I did get a nice compliment at the end of the day from the neighbor. This is rare for these A-Holes. I think it’s 3 compliments in the past week. There had been NONE for over 17 years. I did mention that it would look nicer than it had been at times thruout the build and the final result would look good. I guess they’re now seeing what I knew it would ultimately be what it is becoming.

    Now I have to do a ton of caulking and finish some other PVC trim capping work on my main roof’s gable ends, but the light at the end of this shed build tunnel is starting to shine brightly. At least for the exterior part, there’s still lots to do inside, but that can happen gradually as needed or time permits.

    Those came out really nice,

    Still practicing on those bulbs at work, it’s long and tedious,
    Not one of the jobs I prefer doing.

    I had change plans today as my kid’s Doctor appt got cancelled. So this allowed me some extra time to remove on one window A/C unit. I got put away till next year. Also made arrangements to have 3 yards gravel to my place either tomorrow early next week. I need to put this around the deck at rental apartment.
