Note to self: 4x8 sheets of 3/4" wood are freakin' heavy. Ten of said sheets take a long time to move, and you're wiped out afterwards.

Takin' a break from the heavy lifting. Unfortunately, it's a low-energy day (a low spoon day for those of you spoon theorists) so I'm having to take it slow. The good news is that I'm at a point of not having to climb the ladder right now because I have to pre-cut notched joists. While that's still work, it's not as physically demanding.


Even though I've figured out some rather ingenious tricks, it's still pretty tedious stuff, and I'm still having some seriously low-energy issues. I have sixteen short joists marked for cutting-- though it looks like I may only need fourteen. I'm going to try gang-cutting them, or at least 7-8 at a shot, as much as I can. I'll still have to do the finish notching by hand because I don't have a circular saw that has a deep enough cut (3-1/4"), but it comes with the territory.

I really wish I could nap.
