« Part 11: Dining room, almost check... Some shop time too! Part 12 of Rushing through the home repairs. series Part 13: Dining room, check. Moving on to living room.. »

So I got to looking, it wasn’t that the Frog Tape let the paint bleed, it appears frog tape took paint with it when my wife pulled it off of the wall. So I got the first coat applied, with an artists fine brush

Tonight is going to be interesting,

I have work I need to do remotely from home, start certain jobs on the computers, and let them run, I will likely be running back and forth between the computer and the dining room!

Once that is done, and assuming work gets done at a reasonable time. I will move on to the trim on the remaining wall…

Time to be moving out to the shop to clean is coming up FAST. The next room to be done is the living room, which will get the ridge beam wrapped with cedar, which means the shop needs to process that cedar before I can install it!

Oh well, slow and steady right?

LOL…

Too busy for my own good most of the time.

Need to get get the front area of the house, and the guest room prepped for a family visit in February… Need to finish getting the truck road worthy (rebuilt the front end, and swapped all 4 shocks for Rancho RS9000 adjustables this past spring, getting new tires, alignment, brakes, belts and hoses next month.). Once the truck is road worthy, planning a trip to Memphis, and then to Padre Island National Seashore before it gets too cold…

LOML wants to visit Padre, I want a remote fishing vacation. We are going to split the difference. The idea is to set up a “Glamping” camp site complete with the large tent, raised airbed, sheets, comforters etc…

My only concern is the rule of no generators after 10 P.M., not sure how to run my CPAP without a generator… Kind of worried too. I have stripped the mask off of myself in the middle of the night a few times in my sleep, and paid a HUGE price for it the next day…

I assume the wattage on your CPAP is too high for a battery plus inverter? A deep cycle battery charged by your truck, and then through an inverter might work. I keep a battery charged to run an inverter for my aquarium. It’s rare that we have prolonged outages, but we had one last year due to very destructive winds.

Docked at Greenock near Glasgow, Scotland. Finally getting relaxed.

I need to double check the power requirements for the CPAP… I know Phillips has an “official” battery pack, but it provides power for “up to 20 hours”. Users are experiencing real world run times of 5 hours. Not good…

I happen to have a sine wave inverter that I have used in the past. Just need to lay my hands on a deep cycle battery… Before I drop the bucks needed for one of those batteries, I need to make sure it will work…

If it weren’t for the ban on generators after 10, which I fully understand, this would be a non issue. I am actually looking actively for a good, quiet portable generator. Need one for hurricane prep anyway…

Honda makes a fairly quiet one, I have been told. Right now I don’t have a generator, since it really wouldn’t get much use. My motorhome had one of course, but that was a while ago…........
