9/28/17 The mystery of the broken upper window in the living room is solved, at least there is a strong theory. The second crack, the short one near the bottom angling up to the right, appeared along with the evidence of bird feathers still stuck to the window and the body of a headless, dead grouse on the roadway below. It is pretty clear that the window was broken as a result of bird strikes. I'll begin thinking of ways of mitigating that problem.


9/28/17 On the subject of animal control, a new priority has been established. I will put the railing projects on hold while I seal the first floor of the cabin against animals coming up from the crawl space. There are two possible ways through the subfloor: one is through holes made for plumbing, and the other is around the perimeter of the floor. The plumbing holes were plugged this week using hardware cloth. The perimeter will be plugged by installing 2x4s as baseboards all the way around. To seat the baseboards tightly against the wall logs, a notch will be cut in the logs to receive the 2x4s. To make the horizontal cut for the notch, the Skilsaw mounted in the carriage shown in the picture will be used. The Bosch bulldog roto-hammer fitted with a wood chisel bit will be used to cut away the rest of the notch below the kerf.


9/28/17 Here you see the Skilsaw in its carriage in the cutting position resting on the floor.


10/12/17 The baseboard from Grid E2.5 to E3 is finished. It makes that section mouseproof. In the center of the picture is the big wall-hung heater and on the left is the remote valve control mechanism.
