Well, I've been on vacation all week. Most of it was consumed by cleaning out my dad's house. Part of it was complying with my insurance company for a hand rail on the outer steps that in my opinion didn't need one. The deck on the back needed one also. I was planning on that one anyway. The tractors are all running. One is now at my house and one is there for the renters to use (plus and extra in the shed ). Long story short, my body feels like 210 pounds of hamburger. The house is done and the renters can start coughing up the money.
Here's a pic from the back of my dad's house. The plan is, at least for the moment, is that this house will be the summer home and we'll winter at the beach house when we retire. It's a pretty dynamic plan though and could be totally different in a month from now, lol. Until then, we'll rent it out. Ideally, the young couple that are coming in will stay for quite a while.
I also did a bunch of cleanup in my own workshop. Seems like every flat surface has collected something over the winter, hehe.
