    It was just a lot of hands above the head action MrT. Working around walls that were up limited my using walk boards so some of it was done off of ladders in the bed and bathrooms.
    Build was 30x50. We used 16 footers and put our overlap dead center then built a false pine centerbeam to "hide the joint".
    First day we had screws that fought going in, good self tappers made a huge difference on day 2.
    Little bro quit and left pop's and myself hanging
    as it were.

    Andial, if I've told you once - you need a leaf blower.

    Truth is, I'd love to have those oak leaves for my blueberry bushes, but you live to far away or I'd be over to pick them up.

    I would have them feckers blown clear into the next county by now brother 'Dial.
    I'm always kind of sad when I have to put my Stihl blower away for the season. It's a noble machine.

    Ditto, I'd never want to live without one.
    When we get a dusting of snow, I can clean off the walks & pad in front of the pole building in minutes.
    I used to use a push thingy that left behind snow in the cracks.
    Or I fell down on the ice that it turned into the next day If i relied on the sun to melt it away.
    Also does a great job cleaning off the mower decks & radiator screen.
    Ok, now I'm all excited, I think I see a maple leaf in the grass.
    Have to get the Echo.

    I have no oak leaves in my yard. If I did, I'd grind them with the mower and bagger, then compost them with the grass clippings, use that to build up the compost around the berry bushes. As it is, my soil takes a lot of that acid PH lowering stuff you can buy at the garden store, to get the acid in the soil down to where it belongs for blueberries. Always gotta test and treat accordingly here to adjust the PH. I do use wood chips I make from brush and tree limbs, which tend to bring down the PH some over time, just not enough. I've also tried pine needles, which I do have, but they seem to take longer to break down. What you are looking for with PH for blueberries is around 4.5-5.5, my soil runs 6+ without the treatment.

    All in a day's work on the homestead. (Micro-farm).

    Maple leaves are good for garden compost, great actually. We have those next door, we only get the ones that blow over to our yard. Then we only get them if they don't blow off into the woods of farm fields. Maple leaves are more PH neutral than pine needles or especially oak leaves. So, I'd just spread them on the garden, let the worms chew 'em up all winter, put the big tiller in there in the spring and till them into the soil.

    No, I don't know a lot about leaves for compost, and my yard has mostly fruit trees, which are not huge, so there aren't enough leaves to worry over.

    I installed this mailbox at my new home because I buy many things online and do not like it when packages are stolen. Would you believe this past Saturday the monkey who delivers the mail skipped my home and delivered a package to 1225 which is about 1/4 mile away! 20161120_093651 (1).jpg

    Is a medium old feck. Got the check. One of those guys who wants things done yesterday but not in a hurry when its time to pay the piper.
    About like every other feck with money I've ever met though, save a few.
    Got a big remodel coming up in the spring for the guy, yeehaw!
    Oh yea and one moar migrant dwelling like we just finished as soon as the crew gets the red iron structure completed, hopefully before the week's out.

    Reminds of an olde feck pops did a lot of working for in the 90's. Guy would show up Friday afternoon and say stuff like "my daughter has my checkbook".
    I was young and did not care. Asked pop several times if he'd like me to knock that feck on his ass
    and see if he forgot the checkbook next week.
    goodtimes!
