« Part 14: Vaulted ceiling, and Skylight Part 15 of WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". series Part 16: Finishing the window with shingles. »

I was going to cover over this window, I decided some extra natural light would be nice.

Thanks again to Barb on taking most of these pictures.

Thanks Dan!

I’ve been waiting for a warmer day to do the shingling. BRRRR!

Understand those warm day issues. Lived in Fairbanks, AK awhile, remember spiking milled logs at 25 below zero on an addition to my house. Now have been in Anchorage for 25 years.

Grew up in Virginia, Minnesota, I am sure you know where it is. Have been in Hibbing many times. Undergrad at Carleton in Northfield, 4 years at U of Minnesota in Mpls, and after a year in Fresno, two in Taiwan in the Navy during the Vietnam war, then 3 more years of training in Madison Wisconsin. Fairbanks was the coldest, Fresno the hottest, but Taiwan was the most uncomfortable with 95 deg and 95% humidity for 6 months of the year.

........so don’t ask for too much heat, might get more than you want…......fat chance in Hibbing in November…......(-:

P.S. Still have an older brother who lives in Ely, Minnesota.

Great job. Should make a huge difference in the comfort level.

Nice change to the shop – you can never have enough natural light. They look like double glass units – this should also increase the thermal insulation of the shop.

Thank you, Jim Bertelson.

It’s nice to hear from an x-iron ranger.

Your name sounds kind of familiar.

Thank you, Charlie.

It’s a lot of extra work, but we’re having fun, & can hardly wait for the completion.

I only put in about 3 to 4 hours a day.

Dick,
If you were into curling, you might have run into my father. He curled many years, and made a few significant wins, but certainly not a big name. Otherwise, not a common name up there.

Jim,
I curled in the Hibbing club In the late 1960s, but then my boys got active in high school sports, &

I quit curling to watch the Boys, & I never got back into it.

I prefer woodworking.

I curled in the Last Chance Bonspiel one year. Maybe your father was in it at that time.

My father curled a fair amount, and he was probably still doing it in the late 60’s. I curled too in high school. He skipped a pickup-team that beat the Klefmann rink (then national champs I believe, or recently so, from Buhl I think) in a bonspiel about 1960. I remember talking to him from college about it. So he had a little prominence. I never got into curling again, just too busy with an unpredicatable schedule.

HI Jim,
That must have been in 1959, Fran Kleffman of Hibbing
won the nationals that year.

Bruce Roberts of Hibbing won the world championship in 1976.
