Home To My Home Away From Home, Marin County

Posted by Past Member

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 .

lovely : It was good of you and your brother to do that work for your sister. I am sure it will help this coming winter.

lovely : No problem about your post being long. I have a son who checks on me every day and fixes anything around the house. He cuts my grass, keeps my tree limbs trimmed back, if anything in my house needs fixing he does it. He fixes my car if it needs. He is really a jack of all trades.

MaeRee : MaeRee is how Southerners say Mary. I kinda prefer it.
I gave you my email address.... some things I don't want everyone to know about me. Don't get me wrong.... I'm not a criminal, never been in jail and didn't do drugs. But.... my past is kinda wild after I turned 18, graduated from high school and got out of an abusive home and my mom. She was a drunk.....
Anyway..... use my email address...
