I still find it hard to believe that you found a girlfriend, that when walking into your hell-hole house for the first time, would go "Ooo can I help?" instead of just running away screaming. You loving won the lottery. Grats.

Exterior walls and Rafters?

Until he takes a look at those, sees how utterly hosed they are, and replaces them too.

You already have mad respect for what you've done. If it were me and this house, I'd have been a doctor going in to remove a small tumor and discovering widespread metastatic stage IV cancer - gently caress it, sew it back up and pass it to some other poor schmuck for pallative care.

That exposed stringer is a gorgeous piece of wood though and I hope you just stain and seal it because it would be a shame to hide it.

Unfortunately, Larry's stair building days are long past.

If there was one criticism I could give the master framer himself, he overcut his notches in stair stringers rather than cut to the line and finished with a jigsaw. But then his whole purpose was to maximize speed and efficiency, and I'm sure he knew precisely what he was doing re: stringer strength.

You have not done it right unless the next poor schmuck who works on it cusses you for overdoing it.

I dunno, a steel hatch that occasionally decapitates the owner is a feature not a bug. The next owner should have to regularly demonstrate sufficient courage to be worthy of Kastein's rebuild job. :black101:

Only thing holding it up was spite

Spite is what got it rebuilt into what it is today instead of burned down for the insurance money.

If youtube is anything to go by, the PNW is full of chainsaw whisperers, some of whom are aggressively Canadian. Taking your POS chainsaw in your luggage is a problem I leave to you.

I don't know if it's ironic as hell, or just kastein.txt, that the nicest it's ever looked is when he's given up on it and is trying to GTFO.

This is assuming they would be able to get them out due to the assumed vast overkill when it comes to fasteners.
