Replacing my front porch - out with the concrete, in with a wood and composite deck...

Thanks, but I'm getting too old for this...lol. It takes me twice as long as it used to, then a week to recover from all the aches and pains... I'm about ready for a condo!!!

I can relate, I just put in a wheel chair lift to my deck so I can lift my 94 year old mom
up into my mobile home. And I was sore for a week afterwards, I am 76 years old.
And just can't do the things I used to without paying a price for it. My dad used to say
in such cases. "I'm sore all over more than anywhere else!" Now I know the feeling.

My latest "project" is trying to get all the outdoor painting done (stairs, gates, railings, fences) before the rainy season / snow season descends on us. As I only have lunch hours, and an hour of daylight every evening, its touch and go.

PS: whether you are 76 or 96, it's exercise now that will keep you healthy and mobile in the coming decades. A little soreness is a small price to pay - just don't overdo it...

Beside trying to calm down a friend here on the forum, I've been working on asbestos.

Yep. It's my Friday off from my regular day job and it's "raining asbestos". First I reviewed a 200 page report for a buddy. Then I started prepping around 40 samples I already collected to ship off to the lab. Next will be four asbestos abatement plans. All this and I'd originally planned to work on rear disc brakes for my PT today.

I also had to turn down some work. It's a huge job that would take me and several helpers a week to complete and then a week to write the reports. I just don't have that kind of time. It sucks turning down work too. There's always the fear that the person you turned down won't call you for the next job. But hey, I can only do what I can do.

Not sure if this classifies as a true project, but I have been working as much overtime as I possibly can for the last 10 months to save as much money as I can to put as a down payment on a house when I (hopefully) transfer with my job to New Mexico at the end of January. I'm VERY close to my target amount.
I only plan on working OT till the end of December. I hope I reach my goal!
