I'm fine. Just a frustrating week with work projects. Unexpected minefields; months long leaking steam pipe in crawl space requiring removal of mold covered +20" wide pine floor boards.... yes 20 inches. House is 1740. Also had mini excavator locate an abandoned cesspool tank that took a truckload of crushed stone. Almost lost the machine in the hole.
Hoping this morning is better. Bailing at 1030 anyway to clean up for church eucharist for my mother.

Uggghh, it will get better I'm sure Ross


20" boards? Nice wood, I hope you saved it by blasting with dry ice pellets.

Hang in there

thinking about you

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.

Thanks Bruce. Too much on plate to even consider salvaging them. Too much mold for me to want to deal with and they got hacked into shorter pieces to be of real value. At least the crawlspace was cooler than outside. Reframed it into 12x16 wood girder with 4x and 2x PT and had them cover with flooring ply. Had to pull in younger stronger reinforcements or it would not have gotten done. Always amazes me when working with wood that was growing in the 1700s, or sometimes earlier...
