    Did the last cleanup of the grounds at the cabin today. Lots of leaves to blow and I double cut the lawn with the mulching mower to take care of the leaves that were in the grass. Supposed to start snowing tomorrow afternoon. Glad I got it out of the way.

    Lots of casing today, had to straighten a door and make some trim pieces to fit between sets windows that were too close to case individually.

    Finally finished up this screened porch earlier this week. It was a really fun project, hopefully it looks like the architect’s drawing.
    Worked on our next project today, which is a whole house remodel. Most of the demo is over at this point fortunately, so working on framing now, mostly adding window openings to exterior walls.

    Looks good!

    Nice messy part of the job done there John. I’m sure you’re happy after having to deal with all that makeshifth floor joisting you had to struggle with ripping out. Were there any mechanicals in it that you had to deal with and reroute or set aside?

    Bet you’re glad to have that part of the work done. Will you leave the crawl space as is or will you put in a poured floor?

    BE the change you want to see.

    The electricity for the shop is mounted on that wall but I was able to cut it away without having disconnect it . It will need to be relocated soon enough .

    There is a crawl space under the floor so I will be able to run a few heat ducts .

    Cleaned up 10 yards of rock, this morning, from a dump truck rollover on the interstate that we had a while back. It was a mess. Glad to have it done. Going to try to get a yard graded this afternoon and ready for sod. they are predicting 3 – 5 inches of snow tomorrow, so I do not know if we will be able to get the sod done or not yet this year. If the grading is done, we will have a better chance.

    Would you sod within a couple of weeks of snow/frost?

    It is actually a good time. It takes a lot less water and once it freezes you are good till spring. Spring is typically wetter so it takes well and saves a lot of watering time and cost. Also, getting it in now, we do not have to worry about ground cover for erosion control over the winter.

    We had a house several years ago that we got 4″ of snow on the night after we laid it. Everything turned out great.

    Today was mostly a gardening day taking advantage of the last of the good weather. Clean up and begin to plant tulips for spring.

    Stopped by a buddies place and picked up 450 lbs of Potatoes. Always nice to have locally grown potatoes to eat.

    how do you keep them from rotting/sprouting?

    Well I just keep them in my cool dark area in my basement. I dump all the potatoes out on a tarp after I get them. I let then dry in the air for few hours. Then I check for damage ones or one that look like that they are starting to go bad. I use these ones up first. I dump a bag we are going use in Rubbermaid tote and I keep the lid offset abit so air can get in. Also when they are in a tote I watch for ones going bad. Tote usually holds a bag. I am not sure there is a way to keep them from rotting other then get the the rotting ones away from the other ones. As for sprouting this only happens toward spring. I don’t do anything other break the sprouts off when the come out.
