OT - when I was pregnant and had to work on repairing some walls which *likely* had layers of lead paint in them, I used my scuba regulator and a long hose to a scuba tank so I *knew* I was breathing good air! It may not have been the most comfortable option, but it worked and it wasn't any less comfortable than many masks I've tried before or since.

Yes - please protect your lungs - you've only got one set of them and they need to last your lifetime!

Congratulations on getting that roof on!

So i guess this needs a bit of an update. Weather has changed quite alot and i am now glad the roof is on and i recently got the tyvek on so i can start on putting the insulation into the walls.

I also need to start spending some time on how i would like to wire the walls. The main wire is in, i need to figure out and buy 12v car socket plugs.

The windows are in. It required a lot of tuck tape for the windows!

Built a skiddable wood shed for this bb!

I have my door half way done now.

I am currently trying to source some cedar logs for my board on board siding.


Thomas rubino has my secondary air supply and door being sent to me! thanks thomas! You can check out more RMH supplies Here

Just basically waiting to get my chimney installed before i start on the masonry heater. I ended up finding a ceramic glass top at a restore place. They gave it to me for free!!
