got the second tiny roof window started! this is the first of about 20 or so of these tiny windows that will be high up in the roof, will give wonderful light into the high spaces, with frosted stained diamond glass windows that are about 12x8 inches.

Got started on the roof planking, celebrating the live edging here and there.

Double planked, semi-clinker style, like Viking ship hulls.(think upside down ship hull). Super strong. Planking steam soaked to obtain pliability so they would achieve compound curving. Also, deliberately leaving our timbers and cut wood out to pre-weather in the elements in order to age the wood.(antique effect) Once the sides and top pieces are on, will stain with a gunstock color stain.4 inches of foam insulation goes on top of this, then final plywood, felt, and dragonscale

That is going to be quite the conversation piece upon completion. A house warming would be great. I know I’d love to see it. We c just passed Combo inspection and heading for insulation, T&G and drywall. Feels like quite the milestone.

Are you guys building up in Big Bear, or elsewhere? It is neat to hear others stories and to see others building their dreams too!

looking wonderful- bet you can't wait to get that roof on, and be "dried in" building my live edge slab stairs this weekend --almost the last major project before final inspections

Been in Big Bear for many years and built a couple of places.
Nothing like what you are doing. Art work. Looks like something in a fantasy

Me too, Sportj. I just received this text. "Your ballot for the 2020 General Election was received and will be counted. Thank you for voting!".

I got a text that my ballot was counted! Wahoo! So anyone else who is waiting (after using the drop boxes) it took exactly one week.

MtnTeach - the ballot boxes aren’t third party. They are official county elections office drop boxes.

Dropped off mines directly at the post office, don't need a 3rd party. Ballottrax worked fine for me!

7:30 a.m. Tues - given to mail lady at Crestline Post Office
8:02 a.m. Wed - notified by ballottrax that my ballot had been received by USPS
1:16 p.m. Wed - notified my ballot had been received by SB Registrar of Voters

USPS worked fine!

I dropped my ballot in the dropbox at the Crestline library a couple of weeks ago, it took about a week for ballot tracker to notify me that my ballot had been received and counted.

Yes, I was so politely informed by the Big Bear Postmaster that putting anything in the box outside is no guarantee it will get processed. They even tried to extend that non-responsibility to the box inside the PO. So basically he was telling me my mail no matter where I put it, will maybe get delivered, depending on how the post office feels that day. Amazing.

USFS: Volunteers this past Saturday covered 488 graffiti tags, took out 5 illegal campfire rings and removed 187 pounds of trash along Deep Creek and Hesperia Falls.

The forest partnered with the @MojaveDesertLT and the US Army Corps of Engineers.

Great work volunteers! 🤝 [Click Here]

Sport, I believe the only couple I asked said 4 days but I'll text them and ask again. All were impressed with the tracking service.

I dod, however, use the indoor drop at the Post Office rather than an outside box.

Official Absentee ballot instructs us to go to SBCountyElections.com. I dropped mine on 10/17, it was received at the SB County registrar on 10/20.

Casadelgado - Did they say how long it took for them to show up as received?

Sportyj
Oct 21 : 03:19pm
Dave - ha ha I don't know why I assumed you dropped them off last Monday! Keep me posted if yours is updated any time soon.

We have 3 friends who used the drop box at the Library and they all have been received by the tracking. Dropping ours off tomorrow.

We mailed our ballots and got confirmation that they are where they need to be
