Saturday - Hot, 103F in the shade as measured
by me. I did a bit more work on the rear wall, added that door,
reinforced the wall a bit. The a/c was about 22F below ambient
outside, which is fine, the cats prefer it hot.
I'm actually a bit worried that they are going to trash the foam, but it's
only their home for a couple of days, during the termite work (and again
during the flooring work I suppose).
Still browsing the internet looking for a truck.
Friday 2 August 2019
Heating up, about 101F.
I just used a staple gun to attach some 1/2" insulating foam panels to the
side wood supports, and slipped the same gauge panels between the roof
beams. I was planning on two sheets in the roof, but it's so warped
that just sliding them in won't work. I can still staple some to the
outside I guess, though I'm approaching overkill for this projects.
This seemed to work well: even with big gaps at the front and back walls I
was seeing about a 20 degree delta with the outside air temperatures just
from the R=1.9 insulation. Yay!
I still need to fix the "front" wall and "back" walls - I think I'll add a
door in the rear wall to the rest of the container, since installing the
front went so easily. I wish the front was a full size door, but 24"
was all that I thought would fit in between the old french door and the a/c
opening. Now I think I could have made a 30" door fit, but it's not worth
Thursday 1 August
I scabbed in some uprights and overhead beams in the container. This
was more difficult than it needed to be because the dimensions are clearly
not imperial, and the whole container is a lot more dented and warped than
is first apparent. But I got things in. Running out of corner

Monday - Too hot to do anything, but it's
supposed to cool down tomorrow and Wednesday.
Book #27 was Nowither:
The Drowned World (The Unwithering Realm #2), by John C. Wright.
This is a sequel to Somewither from 2016. I enjoyed it, though
thinking it over later I think it takes place over the span of a single day.
Sunday - Hot again. It was about 106F in the
shade, as measured by me.
I was very tired from Saturday's activities, and in the morning didn't go
into town to shop.
S had found a couple of garage cabinets on Saturday for me, during
their yard sales, and paid for them. I dragged the utility trailer out
of the RV shed, put air in the tires, fixed a couple little things, looked
for but could not find my tie downs and gear, got a helper from next door,
and went into town and picked them up. I had assumed they were 3' x
5', but it was more like 5' x 6', and I was very happy to have some help
