My MIL and SIL are coming into town this weekend!! I know I shouldn't be so happy but since they will occupy the kids' time I will have much more freedom to work outside... so my goals for the weekend:

 

-Pick up my ridge cap material and install it.

-Put the last section of skylight in.

-Move the TT and Jeep to thier respective bays.

-Hang a large tarp to serve as temporary exterior walls a couple of bays.

 

Pictures to follow.

Rain part of the weekend, so it might stifle some of your plans.  Hope you get at least part of your work list accomplished.

yeah, rained all last yesterday evening but today was really nice. Temp was great and had some sun shine. I got the rest of the skylight in and the ridge cap on. I also got everything cleared out (besides the jeep) so I can move the camper in tomorrow. lol, now for the picture showing all of the progress!

It all started with the wife telling me that she wants to be able to park in the garage come cold weather and when #3 comes... yeah, this garage:

 

 

Well it's in... WITH room on both sides to get the kids in and out!!

Congratulations, you did a great job, and it's already decorated for Christmas; red and green tractors and a wreath!

Great news: I got a very nice Christmas bonus and the wife gave funding to buy the rest of my metal for the siding!!

 

Bad news: The wife pointed out a bubbled spot in the wall of the upstairs bathroom... I pushed a little on it and it punched through. It was moist and I could feel the waste water vent tube so I got the ladder out, crawled up into the attic and sure enough there is a leak round the vent. So there goes my weekend of working on the shed!

For every positive, there's seems to usually be 2 negatives I'm afraid.  But at least sooner or later the shed will get finished!

I hate that feeling when you realize that it is something that has to be taken care of immediately. Sealing up around the vent stacks can be interesting at times.

Rain is over for the night and tomorrow so I am not climbing up the 30' roof to seal up the vent... not tonight anyway. I'll call the insurance company first thing in the morning. We had a heck of a wind storm a couple of weeks ago... and again yesterday so we'll see if there was some wind damage that caused it.

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade--- at least you found the wet spot and can deal with it before it gets really major. On the other hand, who'll give me odds on you collecting on the insurance?

Yep, Daniel knows all to well about taking 2 steps forward and 2 backwards.  We just had the kitchen sink clog up so that pushed all the other projects back some and then the wife came home complaining about the brakes on her car so than I had to do a brake job.  Please be safe when you climb up there and I hope it is a simple fix.
