My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

After switching back to the old blog format and hopefully doing away with the word verification I tried to add these pictures to the last post, but they never showed up.
The joists that were on 24 inch centers were glued in and screwed in with three inch deck screws and they weren't about to come out so I could go to 16 inch centers as Billy Bob ask about so... I added joists between them to make it on 12 inch centers. Should be even better than the 16 inch centers.
My friends Lee and Dave came over Sunday and Lee brought his water level and with the help of Dave Lee got the platform squared within 1/8 inch and leveled just about perfect. Tomorrow I'll be trying to figure out a good way to insulate it so that rats won't make nest in the insulation under the floor. They love to do that in case you didn't know.
