I got to do this BB today!  I realized it was time to fix the roof on the barn.  It's a bad sign when you can see outside from inside.  The repair was easy, the access was not due to the pitch of the roof and the slope of the ground below.  But with the proper application of mass to the bottom of the ladder, I survived.  All I had to do was pull out the nails that had pulled loose and replace them with roofing screws.

So with a not so clear day and a week of forecasted rain I thought it was time enough to stop putting this one aside.

The tools + plus all the old nails +plus a normal drill (couldn't use an impact driver because we currently have a wasp problem and the hammering aggravates them haha!)

Best thing about houses in Finland is that they have a ladder built onto the house

But how did the elephant get like that? What did you do? I think all we can do now is read this tiny ad:
