    Yesterday I had to cut the day short to run an errand. Figured I could finish up framing upstairs doorway and install the last of the vapor barrier today.

    I finished up the doorway and was nearly done with vapor barrier when I realized I forgot 4 cripple studs. I said "Oh C**p", crawled in the truck and went home. I had to take Laurie out for supper and grocery shopping tonight so will fix my mistake Monday. Tomorrow I plan to do some more work on the model 49 before the super bowl game.

    Worked on the building Friday and Saturday putting up drywall in prep for loft floor joists. Sure I stated this before, biggest issue is single person hoisting 5/8" drywall panels to get them in place. I have system that works well for 4' lift but now have to lift the panels 8' to get them in place. I have a couple ideas to get the job done. I'll let you know how it works out.

    Contractor & son visited yesterday to install the snow bridge on roof. Piece installed will protect the smaller overhead and service doors. Probably won't get enough snow now to see how it is going to work out. Contractor again volunteered to install loft floor. That is the easy part after drywall is installed. Drywall needs to be installed and seams taped to be a certified firewall. That being said I need heat to dry the drywall mud. Had my small 30k/60k torpedo heated fired up yesterday and with sunny it was comfortable working in there with long sleeve shirt. I still have a couple areas I need temporary construction to seal drafts. Near end of day yesterday I did notice temperature dropping as sunlight diminished. There is no insulation in attic yet. Need loft floor installed so I can cut doorway to access and work in attic.

    Err on the side of caution when going up 8 feet, you can bounce a little from 4 feet but not so much from 8 feet...don't ask how I know this. Every time I reconsider such my healed left panel of ribs aches and sets my thinking straight. Good progress and thanks for the updates.

    Dean left me three stages of scaffolding I use when working high. I only need two to work a 17' (ceiling height). Use a plank between scaffolding and my 17' Keller A-Frame ladder when I need wider area. 2x12 is a little narrow for working high areas. Yes I agree with you. Old bones mend slowly.

    Worked on drywall last two afternoons. Oldest was supposed to call me this morning to let me know if he was available to assist. No call so started myself.
    • Measured and marked screw locations on ground.
    • Setup the 3rd section of scaffolding so I could set drywall on single section.
    • Not shown on photos. A piece of 2x4 was attached at upper part of the 2nd row so I could rest the new drywall on top of the 2x4 and slide it into position. Even with the 2x4 the new piece slipped off the board and I had to catch it ... groans, moans, and verbage not suitable for children's ears.
    • With panel in position the taller scaffolding held the panel in position while I moved from shorter to tall scaffolding.
    • Installed enough screws to hold panel in position.
    • Son showed up.
    • We marked the last two panels.
    • Installed cripples I forgot last week. Still need to add cripples for top row. These were added from other side of wall which is still open.

    I still need to install about a 2' wide piece to finish the row then I need to go back and finish installing screws. Then I need to mud the joint which will be behind the floor joist (firewall requirement). I will need to leave heater on overnight to dry the joint compound then install the wall mounted floor joist. Then the loft floor can finally be installed.

    Did some remeasuring today and i believe I have the door opening 1/2" too high. It is all assembled with construction screws so can be changed.

    Before I let Bryan get away I had him help me get two doors out of the chicken house and into back of pickup. Doors too heavy for this senior citizen.

    Edit: Temps the next couple of days are supposed to be below 0 so will not get back to this until Saturday or Sunday. Care provider duties tomorrow and Friday one of my favorite jobs ... babysitting my youngest grandson.

    No animals for pets. Born and raised on a farm so nothing against them. Archer's parents have a great dane, couple of cats, and a couple of ferrets. Laurie has mild allergy to them so we just enjoy other people's pets.
