sorry for taking a long time, we had internet problems at my parents hosue so i had to wait for when i came back home to write this entry.

So this friday was nice and warm, I started wearing only short sleeves again. I spent all day working on a couple small walls, extending the floor for the clost (shortening the stair opening). The others got the steel roofing started, should be finished or almost by today, ill let you know friday. The sheathing is up on the proch and carport

What i started with

extended the floor, the OSB will dry out. What you cant see here is that i had to make shimes because the 2×4 under it was too low.

now you can see the two walls, this is a closet… we had a problem with the wall length and door opening, so i framed the other wall but the door opening will be changed to what ever fits in there. I had my teacher tell me to do one thing, then the architect stoped by and told me to do something else… I ended up framing everything and elaving it for them to decide.

and here are some pics of the steel roofing being organised and installed


ready to go home after a bit of OT

someone locked one of the carpenters in the potty, he’s a good sport and played along with it lol…

In the United States, the National Electrical Manufactures Association published standards for the performance of various classes of electrical enclosures. The NEMA standards cover corrosion resistance, ability to protect from rain and submersion, etc. Meanwhile lets move forward and see about the technology nowadays. The Rosetta Stone was a tablet with inscriptions on it that a lot of people tried to translate. Rosetta Stone is also a company that sells natural language software that teaches a person a language purportedly better than college language courses. The Rosetta Stone IPO, or initial public offering has just hit, and it could be worth an online cash advance to get in on it. The software series is popular and used by many different government agencies and international businesses. A person wanting to learn a language would find it worth it to whip out the credit card and get the Rosetta Stone.
