The 2x8s were straight, they were just damaged. So I sanded down the damaged parts.

Used the 2x12s from one of the shipping pallets for this framing for a work table. Had to sister some shit together to make an old 2x8 work for the storage higher up.

Got the bench put together and set in place.

A couple of Jim's fun wall friends (Phil would call them the curb squirrels) stopped by today. They're going to help me put a concrete pad around the rock bed and create a space for me to do a couple other things.

Fucking Amish.


This is not factually correct. They did say 6 bundles. But I thought 3 for some reason. They were still weirdly inexact. Like I had an extra wall stud that I used to make parts that were missing.

5/16" is actually the size of the drill bit. :(

The Amish are clearly making you use your brain instead of doing everything for you
People say they all want the truth, but when they are confronted with a truth that disagrees with them, they balk at it as if it were an unwanted zombie apocalypse come to destroy civilization.

This is what they sent to people that paid them like 3k. They get away with so much shit.
