It’s the dead of summer here in the tropics of Alabama and it’s been insanely hot and humid. And as soon as I wrote this, we had a humid-less (37% to be exact) day with a high of 85. Are we in Colorado? Is this some anti-global warming thing? Did we melt a polar ice cap? We’re so confused. It was like a blessing from the Weather Channel gods. Usually, this heat makes it completely unbearable and we can’t think of anything worse.
Well… maybe a pickle and chocolate sandwich. Things happen when you live with kids. Gross.
But I digress.
With the weather the way it is and our work space being outside (see: neighbors asking us about the second story we’re building) I’m always looking for ways to beat the heat, like shortening the work time or using the new Arctic Cove.
But this week we’ve been working on the barn door for our bathroom.
Updated: See how we built it, here!
Cue sneak peek of what we’ve been working on in the bedroom. We promise a details post on how to build this soon, so stay tuned. (In the meantime go ahead and get your hardware so you’ll be ready to go. No, seriously. This stuff is so beautiful.)
One thing I hate when building, especially in 105 degree 90% humidity weather is actually having to drive a nail, call me pampered, or say I have instant gratification issues, but these are the days I love a good nailer.
For a finish nailer my go to is the RYOBI airstrike. It’s an amazing nailer that I’ve used with almost every project and one Ashley and I like to dance with on occasion. (Refresh if video below isn’t loading.)
(And just because there are lawyers out there, we in no way endorse using products without proper safety equipment, these nailers are actually unloaded.)
We do however endorse our mad dancing skillz.
Chloe was not impressed.
Today, not because we build stuff, but because of our dance floor jig, RYOBI wants to give away a 18ga Airstriker nailer. (Either that, or they feel sorry for us subjecting you to Ashley’s dance moves, because let’s face it I’m pretty fly for a white guy.)
