We need to decide where to build the outhouse.
After all day working on the sheds foundation posts, we tried the post hole digger at another location and it zipped right down because we were in the wet area vs the rocky dry area we were in.
Jake has a toilet at his house I got from my sister in law she used in her outbuilding where she lives – got for the price of shipping
I think we were looking at a 5 x 5 foot, might of been 4 x 4 ft platform to build; it would be a changing room also; probably engineer a shower, with the plastic bag holding water in the sun
I will order the exterior siding from the mill down the road; it will need to be picked up there and delivered and walked in; it might take a few trips; I would like for Jonathan and Jake to see what they could engineer to have that delivered. This is when they invite some friends to come along for the day!!!
I will give to Jonathan and Jake a list of what they can do next that they might be able to work on that next day saturday or another day – I am sure Jake might not get the day of either
Next phase after the joists and floor laydown will be to build the walls. I am planning that in June at Ian Childs parents house where there is ample electricity and a chance to get to home depot quickly. I just noticed that week when Ian and family will be there is the week Gwen and I were going to see a favorite ballet company in NYC right in the middle of the week Weds. I will figure it out.
So in conclusion: I will leave Jonathan and Jake a list (will call) of some further work we can focus on. Major thing I think will be the outhouse foundation. we have 4 x 4′s for the posts and 2 x 6′s to wrap around the posts which need then to be cemented in place the holes are dug, just not sure on location digging only on the driest of the property has major challenges – I know for sure why they call it the rocky mountains, all we could find is one rock after another
In June too we will build the roof frames. We will haul it up there in a Ryder truck.
