One of my fall projects was building a Buck Hut. What is a Buck Hut you might ask. Well a Buck Hut is a low 3-sided lean-to that houses the boy goats on the farm. I build one last spring but there is a definite to need to separate the older boys from the younger boys because the older boys thinks the younger ones are their "girlfriends", if you know what I mean. So I framed it up a couple of weeks ago and here is how it has sat in my garage:
NOTE: ALL FARM PROJECTS MUST INCLUDE A CAT.
My son went out to the barn and got some RB&B (Reverse Board and Batten) and plywood. I was HYPED to finish my project! I got all the sides done and 2/3 of the roof done and ........................... I ran out of 1/2 inch plywood. So I was in the garage
mumbling cussing about the plywood when my 16 year old son who we shall call Big L (more protecting the innocent) came in and here is how the conversation went:
Big L: What's wrong?
Me: I need some more 1/2 plywood. Go check the barn and see if I got some more.
Big L: I already looked and all we have is RB&B and 1/2 inch OSB (oriented strand board)
Me: You sure?
Bid L: Yeah, I had to dig to get you the plywood you got. Just use the OSB. You are going to put tin over it anyway. What makes the difference?
Me: I don't want OSB. I want plywood. I will just go look myself. **This is where I stomp off to the barn and come back to find Big L smiling like the Cheshire Cat**
|(example of Big L's shit eating grin)|
No Plywood. Crap. Epic Failure~ BUCK HUT NOT DONE! How do you have a barn full of misc wood and NOT have 1/2 plywood???? So today I will be getting some plywood and tin to finish the Buck Hut.
On a positive note I was thinking I was going to have to power wash the Buck Hut before I painted it but tomorrow we are suppose to get 3 inches of rain and high winds so I think I will let mother nature take care of it.
