Levels 7 & 8


Completing level seven and still using straw bales as scaffolding. You can see our faithful Old Yella, which is our hand operated pallet jack. This allows us to lift the wheelbarrow right up to the level we are building at, which saves us having to pass up umpteen number of buckets!


Here we are starting on level 8. Straw bales are gone due to Dad's concerns about their safety and stability up so high - thus he paid for the Miniskaff scaffolding! This has been great as it is stable, easy to assemble, and easy to move.


Level 8 is where booker rods need to be placed. These are threaded rods which are embedded in level 8, continue through level 9, and then anchor the roof to the walls via wall plates and trusses.

  4. After reading a good blog I tend to analyze it to see what the person behind it might be like.

    I've been in the goal setting business a while now and just like most people with experience in different areas of expertise, I can tell a lot about a person just by speaking to them or reading something they've written.

    You haven't wrtten any goals on paper for awhile have you? And if you have I'll bet you haven't looked at them for a long time. Right?

    Accounting is hard work, and harder still if you don't have short range goals, midrange goals and long range goals.

    I think you'll agree that few people really take the time to set goals of any kind.

    When is the last time you really thought about setting some real goals, or are you like the vast majority of people who just "hope for the best"?

    You already know successful people aren't "just lucky", they know how to set effective goals and reach them.

    I was like that once, you might be also. How about changing all that.

    Come on over to goals+ and learn exactly how to set effective goals, act on them and be the real you.

    There's a ton of FREE information and who knows, this little insert in your blog might well change your life!

    Happy New Year!

  5. Blog

    Thanks for leaving your blog open to comments.

    I always like to live a little "tidbit" of information, hopefully helpful and hopefully something that will make you think - and act.

    This one is short and sweet, and I'll bet you haven't done ( or done recently ), but after looking at your blog I'm pretty sure you will at least take some action, because you seem like a smart person.

    Set New Goals.

    Do you have any old ones written down? Even know what your life goals are?

    Most people don't.

    You will if you use some of the FREE information at Lifetime Goals

    Have A Happy New Year!
