Aw, gee. I thought I had everyone fooled. 5 years, couple of thousand hours of work, over $11 grand spent, just so I can have bragging rights?

Probably not. Lol.

I can see how one might think that though. Thanks for posting.


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

By the way, the wife and I spend some days last week in West Virginia and Virginia as a small get away for a few days.

Also, just as a side note, some areas of WV and Va do NOT have any cell or internet service.

Tough to post on here without either of them! Lol.

However, we are back now, and about time to get back to work. [emoticon]

Greetings from Harrisonburg Va. Been on vacation, and finally came off the mountain to have cell and internet access.

I know, vacation from what? Lol.

Plan to be back home towards the end of next week! [emoticon]

Going back up the mountain, now.

Kind of makes my 15 page engine R & R look puny.

We are back. Back from the mountains of Virginia, and the cabin my grandfather build for all his descendants.

Back to civilization and internet access. Wahoo!

Was a great vacation, but glad to be able to work on the moho again.

I hope to me a little more regular than I have been lately.

Thanks for hanging in there folks.

It didn't start off that way. I thought it was going to be an "easy" fix, but alas, I didn't know when to quit, so here we are.....

Yup, still here!

I needed to cut 2 layers of plywood to fill in the gap here, since plywood is no longer the actual advertised thickness.

After several attempts, I finally got all 4 sides cut and glued into place, which now, is approximately flush with the steel framing.

Next was to add a piece of 1/2 inch thick insulation below the window.

I still need to add insulation around the window frame, so I can cover that up with 1/8" thick plywood.

I did cover the back of the insulation with ChemLink adhesive just like I did with all the other insulation inside.

For those who need a fix - here you are! I hope to be able to spend more time out there in the future.

I used to come here to check on the progress as it was interesting to me, at 5 years running I think fulltimin has lost interest and does not have a completion date in mind, sorry just my observation.
