All done (this part of the roof at least)

Front door maintenance

August 12th, 2017

It was way overdue, the need for maintenance, but I finally found time to do it.

Concert last Saturday

August 11th, 2017

At Tellfortell 2017 Elin and the rest of Ã…kerland had their concert on Friday. I had to stay home together with the kids, but on Saturday Elin wanted to listen to Grenseland. So we all went, the kids also. They did enjoy one or two songs before getting a bit bored and then started walking around forcing me to follow them as well. So did not get to sit down and listen to the band to much, but at least Elin had a good time. Me and the boys also had fun, but not while listening to the music...

A lot of rain, but then it stopped and the sun did show. Times like these I should have had the Canon camera and not only the iPhone...

All about the not so fun stuff to do

August 10th, 2017

Being adult and own my own house is all about doing the "not so fun stuff", such as cleaning the waste container....

Foundation for the portable saw

August 10th, 2017

I have started preparing the foundation for the portable saw, one of the projects I want to finish off this year. It is all about having the proper tools available, here two tractors and the backhoe loader (funfact: It is the same age as me)

Crushed rocks, then styrofam and then premade pillars.

Pillars adjusted and even more rocks filled in the hole. Next is to remove the soil which is not needed. And then I need to get help to figure out why there is a ground fault in the electrical cable. Then fix some issues on the saw and then I can start using it.

Backhoe maintenance

August 9th, 2017

Had to change the gaskets in two of many cylinders on the backhoe digger, since they where totally worn out causing it to leak huge amounts of oil.

Tried to loosen the nut at home, but instead of loosen it I would have ripped the vise of the table. So I had to go to Westreng Maskinforretning, they have the proper tooling, including a very long pipe which I needed to get enough momentum to loosen the nut.

Heavy rain last Wednesday

August 9th, 2017

I did hitch a ride with Torgrim last Wednesday home from work, this is the view we had when passing by RÃ¥myra
