What's one of those lifts cost? I sure could have used one of those back in working days. Whatever it cost I bet it's worth every penny.

I think I paid 2k for it. I bought it New. Was not comfortable buying a used one with life safety in mind. It's great to own. It can sit at the job without considering a rental cost by the day.

Decking is down. Got a couple days of rain coming, but the spiral staircase will be here Monday but it will have to go to powder coating next.

What do you fasten your decking with Mike? I know you’ve said before, I just don’t remember.

Re: M. O. A. D.


When I went there this morning I saw water spots across the concrete. Then I noticed they were paw prints from Tucker. Tucker pretty much runs the place. That's another benefit of my job I get to make friends with a lot of dogs.

Re: M. O. A. D.


So if you want to have wine and cheese one summer evening (probably more wine than cheese), they have to haul all that stuff up the spiral and then back down?

Butlers and servants get paid to do those sorts of things.

Re: M. O. A. D.


Are they putting furniture up there before the railing goes on? Hard to carry a chair up a spiral stair

Re: M. O. A. D.


Okay boys I'm going to come clean. I thought there were zero leaks well I was wrong. Got there this morning and a small drip was coming from a knot hole! I had to remove half the deck boards and I'm redoing a complete bay with a new trough and butyl tape. Yeah it's a minor setback but we are going to get it.

Go ahead guys bust my balls!
