Spent about 2 hrs unsticking the crank out windows in the sunroom. 10 windows total. Lazy fuckers just painted them shut. Was dreading doing it but glad I got it done. A couple were broken (cranking mechanism) but 8 outta 10 ain't bad. Will be nice to have the option with the weather cooling off.

A little tip on the crank out windows, put a little silicone on the gasket; one, to prolong the life of the gasket and two, to ensure the gasket doesn't stick. I use spray silicone on a rag and wipe the gaskets down once a year.

Installed a new state-of-the-art toilet flush lever. Nothing beats the touch of a solid flush handle.

Also begun the restoration of my fiances' porch swing. It's a little more than 100 years old, handed down from her family for our home, so I'm trying to be as delicate as I can to remove all the crusty hardware that was painted over.

NO. I am secure and hopefully will be fine. House is secure. Plenty of food, gas and my Generator works fine. Biggest unknown is where this thing is actually going to hit. If it is a direct hit in the keys/Miami area that helps me because it will take away from the impact

I love a nice hefty metal flush handle. Can't stand the plastic crap and have had a couple break over the years.

Got the cabinets for the island. Screwed them to each other, still need to put the finish board on the back side and a little trim work. It seems heavy enough, that I'm probably not even gonna screw it to the floor.Click the image to open in full size.

Working in the yard the last couple of days, pulling some of the smaller stumps left over from the deforestation project last March, removing large overgrown weeds, and doing some off-roading, just 'cause
