Wondering about the heat and the shed.
This is not a good combination, trying to do outside work when the temperature is around the century mark and the humidity is approaching it. I unloaded and carried the cement blocks over to the tentative location of my new lawn tractor shed, got the large package unwrapped, and found the instruction/parts list information. It seems that a lot of “extra” stuff needs to be purchased to complete the shed. The floor framing needs doubled if you are going to put any weight on it at all, and flooring, other than the week framing, there is no floor panels supplied. In fact, there is nothing to cover the roof panels and shingles will have to be purchased. I am going to slow down and completely read the information that came with the shed kit and make a complete list of what all I may need. My son offered the use of his truck if I need it to bring some bulky stuff home that may not fit in my Jeep Liberty. Now, the only thing that is missing is for me to find enough energy to work on it. Those panels are quite heavy and I seem to be a lot weaker now that I am getting a little older. Now, I didn’t say I was old, so don’t take it the wrong way. I will not be 70 until my next birthday and that is about a half a year away. Sixbears offered to come and help but traveling would take up all his time. I guess his private jet is grounded for repairs or something. Right, Sixbears? But like he mentioned in the comments yesterday, it is only a 4000 mile round trip. You all have great day now, you hear?
