Yes I did get lucky. Mainly because most of the rain/snow/bad weather comes from the north & west while this is on the southeast side of the house. Get sun 90% of the time. If it had been the other side it would have been a lot worse.That looks better then the damaged wood and at least it was caught before any other damage was done. After all the time that the concrete was there and that is all the damage you had I say you got lucky. The pressure treated wood should do good and with the assistance of a pest control program your home is now protected.
probably put some type of VB under neath the metal. Probably ice shield as it is a small area & cost would not be an issue.IT230s I would cover any exterior lumber with a vapor barrier. I would suggest ice&water sheild at the very least 30lb felt paper.
Thanks. It's turning into a longer repair than I was hoping, but in the long run will be worth it. I was dying this weekend working out there with the heat. That area doesn't get shade till about 3PM this time of year. Thank God for the pool cause I took a break almost every hour to jump in, cool off and get the sawdust and grime off me.Nice progress, John..........looking good!
Yeah John, your wife was telling me it would probably be a "cold day in he!! by the time this project was finished.":tango_face_devil:Update:
It did flurry a little while I was pouring concrete.
At least I got the chimney cleaned late Friday afternoon, so when it's cold as he!!, I can come inside after working on it & warm up. Besides good work takes time and it's tough to get good help these days.Yeah John, your wife was telling me it would probably be a "cold day in he!! by the time this project was finished.":tango_face_devil:
And if I wanted to play in the dirt digging out large rocks I could've stayed home in my own rock pile. Really don't understand what's taking so long on this project. Your son muscled out the big rock before sharpening up the chainsaw to start cutting up more of your pile of logs, which your wife is stacking. All you have to doe is mix some concrete and drink a beer! :trink40:
Was good to meet you. If you need any more useless advice just give me a call and I'll be right over.
Ellis, not quite. Got two more to pour but forecast doesn't look good for the weekend. We'll see though. May have to put up the EZ Up to get them done.Another hurdle cleared, John <img src="http://www.mytractorforum.com/images/smilies/fing32.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Fing32" class="inlineimg" />
Yeah, I'm starting to think the same thing. I must have PO'd someone off upstairs.Well! Glad to see your back at it on the porch project. Now I know why we're scheduled to get rain for most of the week and part of next weekend. You know John, you might have a future as a "Rainmaker." You go to places that are having a drought and start some sort of outdoor project. Guaranteed you'd make a bunch of cash. Just make sure it's at least 100 miles away from Orange County. That way we would have good weather on the weekends!:tango_face_devil:
