comment Is there any way I can reclaim this space and still safely support the front steps?
I know the shelf in the room you see above is just under 5' ... I just measured the entry way, and its around 4' 9 from the inside (so its about 1:1). Wonder if its possible the two pegs outside for the deck also hold up that entry way

Last one. The set of steps on the other side of that wall ends where the slope meets that shelf. It continues for another 5' for an entry, kind of like a balcony, only 4 feet off the ground.

that first picture is about the amount of space I'm dealing with. It's maybe 5 feet wide in there and that shelf takes up about half the room ... and there's a door behind me. Moving back would give me 3-6", maybe.

comment Can I season firewood over the woodstove?
+1 on the smokin' and backdrafts. It will generally just NOT burn that well. I typically leave mine out for an entire year (this year's cut is next year's burn). If I have leftovers, they'll just burn that much better next year.

comment How do I fix a leak in this roof?
That was the overall answer I got from two companies that came out -- "we'll have to fix that valley top to bottom, otherwise its just guessing". Overall estimate on fixing it ~400.
