Home To My Home Away From Home , Marin County .
II just flew back from the East Coast and boy are my arms tired ....lol..just a giggle will do !! . My arms actually are tired . I was working with my Brother P. On my Sister's house in Alexandria , Va . The work went very well and all it cost her was a few wonderful home cooked dinners . ( the Coyotes are going crazy out there , howlingcall ove the valley !!! Maybe welcoming us home . A healthy looking Coyote ran in front of the ar when we drove back from the airport , Wed night ) . Anyway , we were all happy with the new look and we put two inch thick Industrial Foam sheets on first . We shot 2x4 s onto the wall at two foot centers and screwed the foam sheeting on top of those . This provides an air gap for air circulation ( prevents wood rot . ) 4x8 sheets of foam gives great insilation for the freezing , 3 foot snow drifts in winter . The paneling is " Ship-Lap" so the joints overlap 12 an inch at least . . I thought some Home Depot addicts might like to know what we did and how much it will improve heat retention in winter and even stay a little cooler in summer . I tjhink the R rating was 13 .
Had a nice adventure and wet up to NY on a bus , big seats , lots of legroom , wifi and bathroom from DC to Penn Station in Manhattan . They have actually taken over the old Post Office , a classic piece if architecture , and incorporated the building into a new Penn Station . Penn Station at rush hour is a total madhouse but a fairly well organized madhouse . The LIRR trains arrive and leave to the second . It says leaving at 5: 01 they don't mean 5:02 or 5: 00 !! I'll write some more later .
I will just add for now that the new Trade Center is a work of Art , a beautiful addition the the iconic Cityscape of Manhattan . Prices of Everything are Astronomical , really out of this world . In Manhattan .
Hittin the hay , really tired . Must have walked 30 miles in the City .
Stay safe Y'all ...💚☘🤗....Eamon .
