When I look at these Pictures I find it Hard To Believe that WE actually DID IT! The Project is about 30 Years Old Now.

This Picture might be a little confusing. It’s the Lead Photo for the actual Set. The Contracts were to “Weather Tight” and there was NO Hydro. We ran all of our Nailers (New Then) and all other Electrical Requirements using a Honda Generator.

Thank It’s Worth Posting?

EDIT: As of Nov. 1, 2018 All the Pictures and Commentary have now been MOVED to the BLOG Section. (Don’t ask Me how I did it. I have NO IDEA …LOL..).

It’s definitely The REAL THING! No need for the PM Conversation Pottz. ..lol..

In those days we used PET (Precision End Trimmed Studs} for the Framing and Corner Studs & Partition Studs. 3 pieces for each and a second Top Rail to tie the Interior Partitions to the Outside Wall Framing. Nobody does that anymore.

I can’t post this as a “Project” so I guess this is as good a place as any. Might be a while though. I have a couple of Health Problems that are Keeping me Down pretty good and NO Idea how long it will go on.

Rick do you have any pics of it totally complete? Kind of reminds me of a big covered bridge. Real craftsmanship there

No totally Finished Pics of this one as the Owner wanted to do the Full Exterior Shingling Himself.

This is however a Full Back View Picture as it was getting Fully Closed In. It’s built on SOLID Granite and the footings for the Piers were somewhat Complex. I’ll add a picture of those 2.. Both Foundations were put in P;ace the Fall before the Summer we did them.

That’s it for now!

I don’t understand the issue, you had a generator. If you had to generate the electricity by biking then that would be interesting. ;)

Quite the build there. I don’t think I’ve seen too many Mansard roofs in the past hundred years. Where did you build this thing?

We bought a new Honda Generator and a new Webster Compressor. Yes. They survived quite nicely and did so for many Years after that. Auto Nailers were reasonably new at that time. I think these ones were “Paslode”. Without them, NOT a Prayer this would have gotten done!

What issue? We had a Generator and a Compressor, as explained above. The Generator provided the Electricity on it’s own for some tools and also powered up the Compressor for the Compressed Air for our Air Power Tools.

What does “Biking” mean. They were built about 70 or 80 Miles S.W. Of Ottawa.

Biking to turn a generator with pedal power. :)

Lanark? Smith Falls? Beautiful country around there.

It’s impressive that two of you could do this in just one summer in the bush. It took them 8 months to finish building my house a few years back, and that was with the foundation, and most of the framing completed.

Sorry for any Duplications or Unclear Photos. My Mind is a little “Out To Lunch” right now.

Any Questions? Fire Away!

Thank You Kindly lumberking! We went up as early as we could. but the Blackflies Ate us alive! So we had to give it another 2 weeks before we went back up. Even then after 7:00 PM the Mosquitos were bad enough! DEET was the order of the day and I do NOT like using that stuff!
