Of course we had to have a few coffee breaks to discuss job progress.
The siding and two by fours and insulation was salvaged from a house that we tore down this summer. Diverted from a landfill or burn pile.
The insulation is now up to R50 and the way the wall is framed there are thermal breaks between the insulation inside and outside. It has made a huge difference in temperature. With the HPS lights burning it was -2 outside and 18c inside. And that's with out having the 45 gallon drums all full.
Now we are trimming the windows and doors with one by Barnwood. Mostly 6 1/2 inches but some of it 13 inch planks. It will probably have to wait until a warm spring day before it gets stained.
To celebrate we took a day off and went on an Agate hunting trip. The Volcanic strata around here is a boon to rockhounds. Replete with agates and even opal. The vistas are pretty easy on the eyes thats for sure.
The Dogs loved the "Big Pond". Xena even went swimming after sticks. Cleo roared around like hippo snapping at waves. Lot's of exercise for them. We weren't the only ones sleeping like babies that night.
Something about being in the outdoors just goes to my head.
Heres an Agate in situ. Tough to get out but worth the effort.
Winds up, weathers warm, time to slop the hogs( Well sweet corn them..) and complete the trim on the green house. Hope your having a week that warms your heart.
