Very nice . .  I remember the first time I could work "inside". . . .    So much better than a gravel driveway,  with tarp if it rained.

I bet you are excited!

Some delays with work and crazy rain we have been having. I got my end wall sheathed and insulation up. Loft built and support/partition wall framed. Additional loft section framed to be installed and the exhaust fan will be in this piece. I will have 84 sq ft for material up off the floor and out of the way.









Next is finishing rough in wiring and insulate and sheath long wall

84sqft, heck you'll have that full in a few days, then you can start on the floor!
Nice job!!!
People think I go out of my way to * them off.
Trust me, It's not out of my way at all.

Well we are cooking with Crisco now. I have my loft decked and sheathed



First bay pretty much done. it has my Welder, torch and metal items



This bay will be general storage



This is my whole house fan set 3,000cfm so I can flush it out quickly. I have to build a duct to the eave vent

Remember my little handy vise I picked up on a job. It is on a stand and back in action





It has a 4 1/4" opening and on castors so it is portable and I am using it. Next is probably finishing the electric and moving my workbench in

Well we have had break in hot weather so can work setting up inside. Good progress and mostly how I pictured things working out. I built my box to exhaust hot air from shop but can't tell how effective it is although it was what we used to flush our whole house with years ago. It is quieter than I thought it would be and that is a good thing. Used osb even though I don't need it that heavy but plywood and paneling cost too much to justify using them.Slow computer so pic's a little later

This is finished ceiling in the bays with low profile LED lighting. These things are great as they only need about 2" of space to put a box and clip the light in.



Wall with my bins for nuts bolt and screws plus a little fold down sorting table that is working quite well



That is where my workbench will go 7' in my old shop almost ready to get it out.
