fulltimin,

As long as you enjoy what you are doing (and your wife is still smiling)-then...it's done when it's done.




Mostly enjoying what I am doing. Everyone has those days, when sanity is questioned, but then, like the clouds, it passes, and it's back to work as usual.

Thanks.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

What a week! Had a business I do some work for with an emergency that had to be corrected by Friday, the 10th. We got 'er done.

Didn't leave time for anything else, but on the bright side.... I did make some extra money this week! Yay.


I did get out there today for a little while, and I put the shelf at the back, under the rear window in place. Wahoo.

As you can see here, I did not get the support under it yet, so for the pic, I am holding the shelf up with a clamp.

That will allow some extra shelf space while we are parked, and will only interfere with one, hopefully, seldom used drawer back there.

I'll be back tomorrow night. Finally finished up the rest of the non emergency computer work today, after finishing the emergency stuff on Friday.

Good news is, this was a nice paying job.

I finally spent some more time on the box under the toilet.

I cut a piece of plywood a little larger than the size of the box, and screwed it on from the bottom. That will stiffen up bottom of the box, since it's glued and screwed together.

After getting that in place, I took a router trim bit and trimmed the bottom plywood flush with the sides.

Next, I cut a piece of 3/4" thick plywood for the top. I made that just a little larger than the box itself.

The red arrow shows the overhang in the front, and you can see the slight overhang on the side, as well.

I also left a small amount of space along the side for adding a wall covering there.

Might help if there was a hole in the plywood under the toilet. Lol.

Today I removed the screws that hold the frame for the sliding window cover in the rear, one by one, and countersunk all of them. I'll need to cover that area up before being able to use that area as a shower.
