I could get into details on how it was back when I was knee high to a grass hopper ?, but that would take awhile..lol. from then to now ?, its like living in a condo !...lol.

Ya lots of hunters up this way have a similar place to head to. Up here we can call them anywhere from blinds to small cabins. Works great for a short term place to make home.



Our house was built in 1912, no plumbing or furnace, but a large coal burner. Upgraded over the years as needed and afforded. The farm has been in my wife's family since 1865, hoping to keep it there.

update: well, not much done, other than two truss's up ?. here is a pic of the first truss I got up. the humidity here is killing this old guy !..lol. this job is going to put me in the hospital fast , I can see this right now !. I don't have anyone to help me on this, this is all me, and what a slow progress this is going to be. will update this thread as I get more done, sorry outlaws, but I can't go very fast on this. I do however like the new roof pitch so far, I think it will be plenty to drain now..time will tell !.

At least we're getting a cool spell this week. I saw earlier this week that Mitch Petrus (former Razorback and NFL lineman) died of heatstroke in Little Rock. He'd been working in and around a shop all day, got overheated and died. Don't overdo it....

I've got to get up in my attic and try to fish some wires down through a plaster wall to a light switch in the nursery, and the hole I'm trying to fish through is under the A/C air handler so can't see what I'm doing; have to hold my phone over the hole and take pictures to get an idea of what I'm working with. I've taken a few days off from it waiting on this cooler weather to set in. Baby is going to be here any day so I gotta get it done. Too hot this time of year to be working on this stuff!

update: got the front half all decked, felt paper down, drip edge ran on the bottom edge, and up both front sides. then covered with plastic sheeting. ripped off the old over hang around the electric box roof area, then covered with plastic. if my math is still good ?, I figured around 28 bundles to cover the whole roof front and back, as well as the cubby hole end roof. rain is headed here Monday, maybe even Tuesday ?, so I got a break Monday for sure. I will try to at least get the front section roof covered in shingles as soon as I can. im soooooooooo tired right now..too old for this crap !..lol. I am not a pro at this roofing ?, but I am doing my best :-).
