      2020Mik_ChimineyastoldtoJohnC

      Assay office...

       

      Image result for assay office"

      I picked up a sheet of split face rock tiles, should have gotten 2 for the exterior...

      Old man Vail sent his nephew to assayer's school, no high grading pockets full here!

      As a bonus, Luigi brought his recipe for Pizza!

      Well of course the Chimney deserved to be showcased on it's, mostly, own towel. nudge nudge

      I was at the Despot and purchased another sheet of Splitface stone tiles and a tube of Bone grout. 

      12.98 and 6.99= $20

      It started earlier this year. I knew I wouldn't need 5 staple guns, but the known 4 couldn't be found, bought one and now 6 more have come out of hiding. They taught my caulking guns that trick.

      Caulking gun ... $3.00

      Flashing base .... 50 cents

       

      Shopping 2 hours.

      Construction  zip.

       

      Whoopie!

      Since there are so many ringers  quality builds this year a simple exterior would be a dog paddle against the tide...

      I've been busy, well the cat and me took our meds and pondered

       

      The whole charm of our en devour is that pizza oven and various large jars, scales and tools.

      DeluxFloorplan

      On the left: in back Luigi's Pizza oven and closer the elevated iron oven. Along the back walls bottles, flasks and bins.

      The customer area will be open with folded wooden doors ready to shut out the elements when they blow.

      There will be chicken wire windows in the inner wall and a through the wall mineral passage

      Nap time!

      Chicken wire! Elevated iron oven! Wowsers! Looking forward to see how you create some of these things out of common household items....

      John if you get your pizza oven built before Dan that will surely be a sore spot with him.

      Oh boy I'm wrapping myself in luxury!

      Devon; Luigi got the job because he can cook in a kiln, the crucible ovens are a treat to him.

       

      Dumb luck has blessed me. This summer I became aware of a broken vent cover because yellow jackets got in the house ... Anyway I bought a vent cover when I was shopping for my junk box. It has perfect 'chicken wire' on it. eighth inch squares of 28ga (0.012") wire. Chicken wire may have been a misnomer, I saw 3-4" squares in pictures... strong enough to keep a bad hombre out.

      Update: These little tiles suck, if they need to have their bottoms exposed. (Rooster I will report myself for saying; exposed) (twice!!) 

      I put a fresh 220 on the wet sander and have nearly cleaned half of the tiles. I still have to break the other half free from the backing sheet. The blocks get mortared into a free standing wall. 

      Are we having fun yet?

      No pics of labor ...

      Of course the mental debate of roof or not still is rampant ... depends on the details, if they get made.

      Well Dang, there's been a hiccup on my cure. Seems the last spot to fade hasn't and has a tail. We don't know if it is new life or a reaction to immuno therapy or a round of antibiotics I'm on. Yesterday's infusion has been postponed to next week. 

      About the time I think I can focus on grinding my tiles clean, some body asks how I'm doing ... 

      Part of the Practice of Medicine is trying something and seeing how the patient reacts, it is very helpful; if the patient is patient.

      So that's where I am.

      I'm feeling very positive. I bet it is a nothing-burger. Let's go with that for now.
