BTW the reason I used the tall studs to start with was because I'd read online that its best to have a high sealing in a small space because it gives the illusion of having more space and cuts gown on a claustrophobic feeling.
Since its all painted up and I didn't want to take a chance on falling off a ladder again I decided not to take the Fascia board off and do it right. That meant me having to take care of the gaps inside which is really slowing down the progress. I'm doing that by cutting small strips of blue board to fill in the gap, screwing them in place and then caulking the edges. Now I need to either shift stuff around inside the cabin or put it out front so I can get to the rest of the back. Don't know how this happens, but now I need a 12x16 storage building to get all the junk out of the cabin.
I did get the extension ladder out last week and drilled a couple of small holes on the back of the corrugated roofing at the back. The reason I did that was so I could setup the extension ladder up and wire it to the roof to keep the wind from blowing it down while I was on it or on the roof. I took the bucket of roof sealer, a paint brush, the drill and some screws up there and I THINK? I got the two roof leaks patched by using the sealer and more screws to pull the metal down where there were gaps. Only way I'll know if that took care of the leaks is to get another decent rain. I thought I might get that last night when I heard the pitter patter of rain drops hitting the roof last night and having left the windows down in the jeep that put me to sprinting out there about 3:00 AM wearing nothing but my skivvies and shoes to roll up the windows. Turns out that it stopped about the time I headed out the door and that was it so I still don't know if the leaks are sealed or not.
On another note the Jeep is leaking oil so bad now that I'm going to have to deal with that problem real soon! I had a chance to buy a good used engine for it for $125 and thought about that, but when I asked Gill (The local mechanic) how much he'd charge to swap engines he said $700 because he had done that to the same type Jeep and didn't want to have to do it again because it was a real pain in the posterior. I asked him about putting in a rear seal in the existing engine and he quoted $250 so at that I decided I'd have to do it myself.
The Dude of the Dead that I posted the flier to some posts back turned out to be a total flop from what I hear. They advertised that it would be a three day event held at the race track and hoards of people showed up to camp out. Turns out that it was going to be held in the community center instead which really screwed things up. I'm not sure it even went on because of that.
And just so there's something here besides my babbling here you go. A song by Foreigner that I like real well.
And lastly there seems to be more and more spam coming in through email for anyone that has chosen to be notified of new posts to the blog. I really don't want to bring back the damn word verification so when I get a spam email that was posted on the blog I just go to that thread and unsubscribe. I'd recommend that any of you with the same problem do the same. Blogged is good about keeping them from being posted on the blogs, but they don't stop the ones going out as email. If everyone unsubscribes when they get a spam mail then the spammers are loosing because no one will ever see them.
