    Installed 3 fixed windows.
    Big ones : 46″ x 76″

    That is some kind of weight there I bet. Glad it was you doing it because it came out looking great.

    I don't do a fast job. I don't do a slow job. I do a half fast job.

    Very heavy.
    I had a helper otherwise it would’ve been impossible to install.

    Had an acoustic guitar come in. Had to shave down the bridge and lower the saddle to get the action better. Of course a cleaning and set up was involved.

    Nice! That is a pretty specialized area…how did you get into doing that?

    Just random curiosity. I play poorly and started messing with them and found I was better at that. I like the instrument, so it keeps me involved. If I can’t play all that well, I can make it so someone with talent (and dedication to practicing) can do it easier.

    2 8-foot kayak’s “fell” into the bed of my truck, so a good amount of this afternoon was trying to move things around in the shop to make enough storage space to put both of them. I definitely need a ‘non-working’ related shed to put all this stuff.

    My wife came close to buying a Kayak on sale this spring. I was so happy that they were sold out as we don’t have any storage room for it right now other than in the basement which I really would have cringed at that prospect.

    My wife wants a kayak too. She would also like stand up paddle board. You can buy a inflatable kayak. They would be alittle easier to store.

    Congratulations , yeah it’s definitely a catch of both worlds , nice to have sporting goods for activities , but definitely need a certified spot for all the equipment ,
    I’m in a similar situation , my garage /shop is full of bikes and other sports related stuff , frustrating at times when you just need to do something smaller on the saws and you have to move stuff around lol
    Hopefully you will find a solution.

    I’m back in the plant today , it was hard getting my 🍑 out of bed this morning at 5 am , oh well , back to the grind , have to call maintenance and security , looks like it’s time to calibrate the icy and gas detection system , it looks slightly off scale
    Then start up the distiller and get the filling station up and running

    I wouldn’t trust an inflatable one. She would be using it off the shores of Lake Ontario just down the street from us. Heavy winds, and she could drift out for miles maybe. Mind you, I’ve never even seen an inflatable Kayak, but I assume they are super light weight.

    I recall being out in a pretty decent quality rubber dinghy on a small lake with a buddy when I was in my 20s. The dinghy wasn’t one of those made for little kids either, you could mount a motor on it if you wished. We had solid wooden boat paddles with us, but the winds really picked up. It was near impossible for us to get back to shore and we were both in very good shape seasoned canoeists but we just didn’t realize how with no keel and being this big floating sail of puffed up balloon, we were at the mercy of the winds. Ended up giving that dinghy away years later. The dinghy was a hand me down, and living in an apartment at the time, I wasn’t about to buy a motor for it.

    Yep, I have one and it sure comes in handy keeping stuff like that out of the way. If you have rafters store those kayaks up near the ceiling, lots of examples on YouTube

    Working on a guitar.

    While I was doing that the furnace installers were here. Some complications because of the way the last one was put in. They fired it up and, because we haven’t used a furnace in years, all the vents were closed. The air redirected under the laminate floor and pushed apart a couple of seams that don’t seem to want to go back together again. It was weird, the whole floor started to rise when they turned it on.

    Wow that is strange that the floor was lifting when the furnace turn on with the vents closed. I guess the air had to go somewhere. Good to hear the furnace got replaced. This should be a good selling for your place.

    I took the day off work today as I was feeling too good. I couldn’t get any sleep last night. I think I just fell asleep when the my alarm went off. So I got up and called in. I did manage get alittle sleep today.

    Geeze man , that’s kinda funny , I wonder if it could be small pieces of debris and stuff that was sitting in the vent pipes that was pushed under the flooring , I hope you can get it figured out and fixed up Jim , to bad I’m far away from you , I’d definitely offer some of my time to help out.

    For me , still filling up the container with distilled water from our distiller ,
    Will be installing another run of bulbs or cell’s depends on what my boss wants me to get done ,
