That is a beautiful home you are working on , wish it were mine, so much is wasted on the young! Good for you for helping out, I have never been a carpenter and have always said "I can cut, weld, drill, tap and screw, just don't give me a hammer and nail". Hope you are enjoying the job.

It's enjoyable to a point. Luckily, I can work with wood or metal! Prefer metal! Lasts longer!

It's looking like I will miss the tractor show in Pawnee, OK this weekend. Need to get this job done and we have more rain coming next week. Plus no time to get ready for the show! Oh well!

I was surprised how I'm getting along without the income from the job. Now I wish I had retired earlier. Working was inter fearing with my spare time.

That's the issue right now! The extra $ is great. But no time to play!

That's a great looking cabin getting a well-deserved refurbish, nice work Kenny! If I can ever retire, I'm not very confident I will be in good enough shape to do some of this sort of work for retirement money!

 

Is that a Billy Bass on the wall in the 3rd last picture?

Ha, Will, it sure looks like one!-LOL! I had one and my son wanted it. While he was in Denver at college he threw it in the garbage, said it quit working---bummed me out---Oh well I still have the "end of the line" of those Billy Bass gimmicks!

Kenny. Just keep on keeping on brother! I commute an hour each way to deal with our liberal government bureaucracy near DC. BLAH! I can't to retire and put my GTs to good use on our property.

Makes me wish I never quit the job at the dairy in PA in my youth.

Kenny I know just what you are into.

Just rolled into home after 15 hour riding this pony.  Covered a little over 525 acres today.

Nice looking cabin. It looks very similar to what I would refer to as a panabowed house, Not sure on spelling. But the timber on a panabowed is finger jointed. But that look and similar layouts were available. Very popular around here in cottage country in the 80s.

I own a small carpentry company and absolutely love my work, but sometimes I miss spending extra time at home with my family and tractors, though I don't over do it and I make sure I always have time with my family. We have a tendency to work far to much and play to little, I am still young and plan to play a lot and work just enough to keep the play going.

Good luck on your project and your play.

This job is winding down and none too soon for me! Today we finished to paint and hauled the scaffolding home! Still have to take that into Tulsa to off load! My hand is still not good!
