Hi everyone. This is my first blog and I hope you will come back often. This blog is going to include some of the things I am learning how to do. There will be gardening tips, car maintenance, house restoration and our experiences of raising cats and dogs.
We provide a shelter for stray cats and dogs. Newly added to our household is a mama cat with six little babies. They are all healthy and so cute.
Today I removed the lattice from around my porch. The roof is really sagging and the porch needs to be raised. I am hoping that tomorrow I will be able to place a hydraulic jack under the porch floor and raise it up to where it is supposed to be. I never knew how my dad would know that the roof needed raising. He never showed me and I didn’t ask. Several weeks ago, I looked at the area where the porch and house roof meet. The porch roof is 3 inches lower than where it should be. I really don’t know how to do this, but my neighbor helped show me what to do. He also helped me with my hydraulic jacks. Now I know that you turn a little screw at the bottom of the jack to make them go up or go down. I can’t believe that I am actually going to do this, but it should be interesting.
It is supposed to be cooler tomorrow. So far the temps have been in the high 90s to 105 degrees Fahrenheit. So if it is cooler, I will attempt to raise the roof.
