To do this put the pivot point through the loop. TIP: An easy way to do this is to unscrew the guide or runner and move it to one side, put the cable around the pivot point and re-fix the guide.
If you have a timber frame home with a thin timber external cladding your window jambs may be too narrow to house your blinds and they will have to be fitted outside the frames. Remember you don't want the blinds hitting the windows.
Georgia-Pacific makes a product called Ply-Bead that imitates old-fashioned bead board. It comes in 19/32" and 11/32" thicknesses. Suitable for both sloped and flat ceilings, the 4'x8' tongue-and-groove sheets have a pine top veneer that's milled to look like bead board.

If you're building in a remote area with little manpower remember: getting a 10" thick 15 foot log can be pretty tough. Ropes, planks, pulleys and extra hands can help you accomplish it, but if you've only got one or two people imagine how much easier it is to build the same 15' long wall with 16" pieces.
Well organised storage is a great help. Everything should have its place, and be retrievable. Tools, abrasives, finishes, etc, should mainly be kept in drawers, because shelves are traps for dust and chips, and drawers are easier to access than cupboards. If you have a table saw, it is quite easy to make simple but strong plywood chests of drawers to fit odd spaces in the workshop (as long as you are satisfied with 'workshop' quality!). I recommend you number the drawers and keep an up to date alphabetical list of each item in them. Better than spending half a day hunting for a missing item.
The Broome Hut is the culmination of many years of planning, fundraising and collaboration with the US Forest Service.

If the opening is too large then add some.
