That's one of us...Better off you tell her... nervous

Since I was basically just waiting for the leaf guards and had loaned out a piece of scaffolding from the one I had out back I didn't really have anything to work on on the exterior...I went ahead and started adding the 6" wood walls around the porch.
Scaffold came back Saturday and I completed the fascia, snow rail and gutter on the rear elevation.
Eventually in front of the wood walls will be a 6' wide ramp that will lead to the basement and the existing shed.
Just one more little piece of the puzzle finished... up
first pic is a before shot...

Here's the rest of the pics...I only have 2 more walls to go. From the corner you see at the left back 5' 6" at a 45 degree angle towards the garage and then one more 45 degree corner to against the foundation. I can finish this once the underground pipe for the Storm Water Management is installed.

On a side note when building these do not mix wood you bought a year ago and new wood unless you can keep the rows the same...The new wood is so wet it is about 1/8" higher per board than what has dried out. rant

Yup, even pressure treated lumber does not last long in dirt.

I haven't ever had any issues with it...not saying now that I won't but I have a couple areas where they were built and spiked together that have been there for almost 15 years...They still look like they did when they were built. shruggy

I worked on the west side and removed all of bracing for the temporary platform and installed the starter strip...tyvek and the last row of siding. I ended up with the bottom row of the siding 3/4" of an inch below the exterior sheathing...A little silicone inside the gap and I should have no bug or moisture problems...
Picked up a cube of Brick on Thursday for the front elevation...May say screw it and install myself rather than wait on the mason... work
Last pic is the brick on the front of the house...I wanted them to match but that brick has been out of production since 2000. Its similar to but different than what I have...I can live with it...

Friday...Saturday and Sunday it was back to doing the ground work for the wood retaining walls and connecting the rain gutter piping together. I dug the trench for the piping and added the fall so it will drain...Damn thing need to be a little better than 3' in the ground where I had the extra dirt piled up... rant
Really only about a foot deep after final grade is established...

I picked up the leaf guards for the gutters and installed them front and back...Got all of the scaffolding removed from the front and started tearing down the temporary scaffold at the back. The front gutter is tied in to the Storm Water Management system...once I get the back scaffold down at the corner I can tie in the rear.

Here is a pic of how I tied the wood walls into the foundation to keep anything from moving. These 12 gauge steel clips we use at work and work perfect to tie in the wood also.
Maybe the best pic I have been able to take of the front...much better without the scaffolds... up
Prior to finishing up working on this before winter I would still like to:
Get brick completed at the front...
Install posts at the back for the porch and stairs to the basement...
Install the bottom layer of Tyvek and siding...
Install basement windows and bars...
Install basement door and light above door...

At that point everything is sealed up tight and can be locked up...
I still have a full kitchen remodel to complete for the wife... runaway

I had to switch gears and begin working on the back porch where the stairs will be to the basement.
In walking out the back door the distance to the bottom door is too close to run the stairs straight down along the back wall. I wanted to use a typical 7.5/12 stair riser and tread.
There will now be a small area 5' wide and 4 1/2 foot long that will be the landing and then 2 steps down to an 8' long landing 3' wide with with two steps down to a corner landing with the balance of steps running down the wall towards the door.
I installed the two posts for the 3' by 8' landing on Saturday.
Pressure treated 6"x6"x16' posts buried 32" in the ground in Quickcrete.
I used 3" of gravel under the posts and will add some more Quickcrete at the top to head water away from the post bases.
Pics are a little hard to follow until I finish removing all the bracing for the temporary platform around the outside...

Did I mention this was built on a hill??? runaway

I gotta say your garage is a work of art. I'm continually amazed at the attention to detail you've demonstrated through these postings.

I'm embarrassed to go out to my polebarn shop.

Very, very well done!

So when can I expect you?????

Continued kudos!

Thx...Much appreciated...


Shooz...Are you familiar with the term SOL???

It'll take me another good solid year to finish the garage interior with some of the things I have planned and most of the winter to button up the witch's kitchen...
After that I will need to pay for it...and that's where you come in... up

Jerry should have some free time...unless he's watching TV with Tom...he might be rubbing that purple thing... boogie




















The car that is... boogie
