    Im almost out of projects. Got most done the last 3 days. After work the next 4 days I have 2 weeks off. Hope they keep a lumber store open. The small local one already closed.

    Kind of PIA to mud around that receptacle aint it? So you going to dry sand or wet sand? I ended up wet sanding all of my basement to minimize dust. Not as good as dry but not nearly the dust. I wish that I had just invested in one of the sanders that you hook up to your shop vac but never pulled the trigger.

    I bought a swim spa, or a spool as they call it, in January to help build my legs back up after knee replacements.
    Seemed like a lot of money at the time but now that I'm trapped at home I'm glad I did.

    Had to build a set of steps to get in the dang thing and that's become a bigger project than I thought. Hopefully finish it today.

    I hang the drywall and the wife does all the finish work. I bought her some wet sanding blocks and the vacuum apparatus...she didn't like either. She likes the dry sanding better...puts on a respirator and starts sanding! I'm just glad she's helping!!!!

    Bought a steel duck pit blind that was damaged when it was pulled out of the ground with a hoe. Doing all the damage repair, paint (truck bed coating)and improvements. Planting a garden, cleaning all my reels, installing lighting in the boat so when this stuff is over I'm gone.

    A hot bat/tub does wonders for my aches and pains

    Did you cut the stringers?
    consider some lateral support if you have kids racing up and down

    Long time back I was the guy sent to the job to do stairs and steps and all the fancy crap on decks
    Ive seen stringers for sate at Home Depot

    Anchoring that stair will never go anywhere!
