Uuughh!

For the last 3 months I've been bogged down with many small maintenance and repair jobs so I haven't had anything really noteworthy for the blog. I've repainted and finished caulking the basement windows on the house, cleaned the glass and getting some new ones made. I've completed some jobs for my mom - new brackets for canopy bed to lower the matress height, new brakets for a picture window shade, Net frames to keep leaves out of her koi pond. I've installed the white oak trim which also reinforces the door jam (security measure) at my place but have to make plugs for the screw holes and stain and finish the pieces. Most immediately I need to do 3 repairs to my car, and get the mower off the tractor and get the snow blade on. I also need to start fixing my truck which is totally down now with a fuel, timing, or vacuum issue that I haven't trouble shot yet. When oh when will I get started on timberframing?!

It's Steven the Canadian timber framer. I see you are very busy. Like myself you now know that perfection and grace ask's for lot's of spare time. Something that is not easy to come by with a full time job.
I'm in the process of buying my partners 50% on the 90 acres lot.This kind of changes the budget for the timber frame project but now all the trees will be on my side. Continue the nice work on your blog
Steven

Have you considered post and beam construction? Far superior in my opinion. Just ask the Amish..

Hey were are the doughnuts .........
Let's bring in some fresh bagels come Monday you slacker. We should have had something before you left for vacation. Don't be snaking your way out of not bringing anything in for your birthday.

Apparently giving my blog address to my co-workers was not such a smart idea! Brad
