Couple pics from this summer....

I finally got to downloading a few pics from our many camp trips this summer. I did some work in the living room, removing the old barn siding he had for walls and replacing it with drywall. Here's what it looked like after I tore out the old siding....



My uncle has done drywall for about 30 years so it help having someone who knows what they are doing. Here, Wee Man inspects the final product and is most likely pointing out a high spot in the seam tape to Uncle Howie...



Last week I went up for a few days and got the rest of my wood cut, split and stacked. I don't have a before pic but here's what it looked like after three days of sweat and hard work. A full woodshed is a happy woodshed....


I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Nice!!

C'mon Buckethead, you can admit it, that wood was stacked there when you bought the place.

Where have you been? I had to work late... Oh these? Yeah, it was 'camo day' at work again .

Re: Couple pics from this summer....

I wish! It would have been a whole lot easier if it were. There was a day I worked that hard every day but its been awhile. When I bought the place in Dec. 2003 there was one row of punky cherry in there that I burned through in one or two weekends. I had to buy a load of wood to get through the first winter. I got five rows of seasoned beech along with a smattering of maple and a few sticks of cherry in there now (about two years worth). I get the $20 ANF firewood permit every year because there is good firewood laying everywhere up there that can be had with a little hard work. Most of the beech dies and stands for a year or two before it breaks off at a weak spot. Its already pretty much dried by the time it hits the ground and only takes a short time to be burnable. Some of the stuff from this haul I split and threw on the campfire outside to see how dry it was. There was no moisture at all in most of it and that beech burns like coal.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.
