A2 Hosting still has not fixed the Database after their servers failed AGAIN. A2 Hosting is the WORST!
Because of this, new posts are currently missing and I can only HOPE they eventually recover the table they didn't restore after their latest failure.

Keeping at it.

This morning I when I decided to do a second coat of paint on the parking area shed door trim, I went ahead and mimicked the style of trim and edging on the left side of the door by taping off and painting a matching strip of green.  I think it looks much better than a solid, over-sized area of white.

Then I moved the wood shed-let back out from it’s place, raised the bricks to help sit it better, and got it shoved and lifted back into place.  I had originally planned to do a green trim strip to narrow the gap between the door and the shed-let, but decided that a full white trim board would do much better and “complete” the door frame a bit.  


However, before cutting the trim to fit, I got the sliding screen I had spare and managed to get it put into place.  It will help a lot with allowing air-flow in the summer without bugs getting in or the cat getting out.  Then I cut the trim to fit, painted it, and got it installed.  It will reduce the cold air that flows through the wood storage and looks much better.

Then I added fuzzy weather stripping for the wood side of the sliding glass so that it doesn’t squeal metal-on-metal anymore.  I also cleaned the edge and waxed it so that it closes and opens much easier.  And then I closed up all the doors….. but…. forgot I haven’t added an exterior handle yet, so had to go around to the other side to open it.

With that in mind I grabbed my little vice and the outer door handle and used my little grinder to cut it down to size.  And now it is epoxy glued and clamped and I will need to wait a couple days for it to cure before closing up the door all the way.


Had just a little “go” left, so I got the door frame and foam for the house-to-workshop gasket installed.  It fits very snug and I used some of that strange shaped Z trim for the base plate to the house.  It will provide a seal without causing a big step-out on the floor.  The transition is much like that of the regular sliding glass door that we use to come and go to the grill area.  It has a little white caulk from where the wall was put up and a little black caulk from where I sealed the Z trim to the floor… but it will look much nicer when that is all painted with the “Deck-Over” for the flooring.


But now I am drinking some apple juice with a little bit of rum in it… so no more power tools for me.

Salute! to you for work well done and fantastic looking. Apples and various alcohol. Jim Beam, Crown Royal and many others are into Apples for flavor this year. Back in the 60's Boons Farm and Bartles & James had tons of Apple Wine for all us old Hippies. LOL
Relax and enjoy your hard work.
