Work #3: So I guess we do roofing as well...

344 days ago by ElliottH | 4 comments »

We had all summer to start this roof, but someone seems to think now is a better time. I worked 7h till 19h today, but it was a nice day and as the photo shows I had a nice view. We aren’t changing any of the timber, just insulating adding a patio and some skylights. We have to take off the tiles but the guys that do the copper around the skylights and gutters etc( I don’t know what this is called in English) are putting them back on. The tiles won’t get changed as they ...

From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #8: "Aut Viam Inveniam, Aut Faciam"

473 days ago by Serradura | 10 comments »

Finally we could order the roof plates. And yes, this was 90% of our budget. It seemed to make sense putting the money in the most important part. Now here in the middle of Portugal the temperature goes from 45 (or even more) degrees Celsius down to almost zero at a cold winter night (we never had frost up until now). So a good isolating roof is one of the first priorities. It wasn’t that difficult to put the “half plates” up. With a little bit of help from my wife it just ...

New Shop! #6: Big progress and a big storm.

745 days ago by Ryan Haasen | 1 comment »

Over the past couple of days, the shop has been worked on and is coming along nicely. It is very solid construction. The walls and roofs are up and most of the red tin is on. We also rerouted some underground irrigation around the side of the shop. Today, a sudden, harsh storm came up very fast, and I mean within 5 minutes. Tt went from sunny to almost golfball sized hail! My dad has bee pulling the helicopter out of the shop every morning so the builders have more room to work with. He...

New Shop! #4: Building supplies have arrived!

757 days ago by Ryan Haasen | 2 comments »

Last week the 32’ x 12’ bi-fold door arrived from Manitoba. We used the mini Deere excavator to unload it and walk it to the shop. Some relatives from Holland were visiting and assisted in the moving of the door. Yesterday the building supplies arrived for the additions onto the shop. From what I saw, the was just trusses for the roof and tin for the exterior, so I imagine supplies for the walls are yet to come. They say the building will start by next monday at the latest. ...

Windy Wednesdays

904 days ago by T. D. Reid | 1 comment »

Wednesday proved to be a challenging day for me as I had noticed when I was leaving to take Tom to school that the wind had lifted the shingle (role type) that’s on the porch roof. Mental note to fix it when the wind died down. Well I forgot to do it when I returned home, too caught up in sanding the bed. So I’m in the shop working away when my wife gets home and tells me that it has come completely up. Wow and just when I was about to go from 80 to 150 grit! Afternoon ruined along with a pa...

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #18: A roof!

1177 days ago by cmckerliesr | 6 comments »

As you may know if you have been following this blog I have been struggling with the heat this year in the can. For some reason this year heat has just been a real problem. In the past, it was not that bad and with both doors open I did not always need a fan to work comfortably. This year though it seems that it has not been as windy as usual and the can has been been getting quite hot even with both doors open and a fan running. Some days lately it has been so bad I have resorted to working ...

The Storm has arrived!

2598 days ago by Roger Strautman | 5 comments »

Well, MsDebbi was right I’m raising the roof line up 2’ in the living area. I was told by my wife that this project has to be done in no more than 1 year, my boys graduation. There is no going back now! To start with there was and existing fireplace and I knew that I was going to need all the chimney brick I could get so I had to remove all the brick one by one and then clean off all mortar so they could be reused. These picture shows where the chimney was located and it also ...
