After a few weeks from some serious work, we updated some things this past weekend. It has been a while. Sheralee came into LV for a weekend, and then we kinda took a weekend ‘off’, just doing some maintenance type things for the next weekend. This weekend we had a chance to get back to working on some projects.
You can see the ‘compound’ in each picture. What a great ‘relaxing’ weekend. Then Sheralee came to the ‘big city’ for a weekend, which was really nice for all of us.
This past weekend, after the rains, I made it up Friday after work. We headed out early Saturday morning for a materials run into Prescott.
Some things I needed to work on was repairing a malfunctioning water pump and miss-behaving chainsaw. First up, was the pump work on Saturday, once we got back. I had purchased a new Shurflo 3 gpm pump. I decided to go ahead and create water pump v4.0.
This time I decided to stay away from Pex, spigots, and anything else that was permanent. I found some great plastic adapters that thread directly on a Shurflo pump (1/2″ M) and change to a 3/4″ garden hose thread. Brilliant! Why didn’t I think of this before? doh!
The lighter was used for Sheralee’s new ‘instant shower’! This thing is awesome!
Basically, you head up the water using a common camping propane cookstove, then pressurize the tank, and off you go. So nice! Thank you Mario and Ainslee!
The real projects started Saturday afternoon, and Sunday. We purchase the materials to finish out the 2nd container framing and complete the new wood floors.
In the other container, we went with large plywood pieces, 1/2″ on top of 1/2″ foam insulation.
This time we cut 6″ pieces and are using a different stain. We cut all the pieces Saturday afternoon. What a fun job with 2 people and a small table saw. ha!
After she put a coat of polyeurathane on, we installed the first section.
I will say this, IT LOOKS AWESOME!!!! We were so happy with the say it was turning out. Great color, great width for the floor. Just awesome. We continued on with the next section.
This new container will be our bedroom, with the TV, wall shelving, wood fireplace, and a 53″ TV for football! ha.
I think that is it for now. Hope to have the floor done next weekend so we can finally move the bed over and get that container insulated and warm for winter!
