Pretty sure this is the last “big” building I’ll ever do. Should we ever move again in the future a workable space is a must have. So much of the problem comes in to what’s considered my off time and then what I could be doing with it. I’m so much happier using a space rather than building one. :twak:

The exterior is nearly finished! Today I made up the door insert panels and painted them.

I need to touch up the brown trim, paint the exposed sides of the 6x12s, seal around the windows, and caulk around the new door panels. Soon enough I’ll be ready for my final inspection to close my permit.

The tarp came down but it was in preparation for some weather we got. Then he went over his deck with a pressure washer to prep for staining which he did on what seemed like the windiest day of the year. Can you guess which side of my shed has a texture to it now? He pretty much fogged the whole neighborhood. HE’s lucky I didn’t have a vehicle parked down there. :brickwall:

Calling in for my final inspection this week. :banana:

Suppose these two camera angles won’t change anymore with getting going on the electrical and interior.

So... moving on. With the change in the weather it’s time to be thinking about what’s next. I figure that if I’ve got insulation on standby and conduit trenched in, then I can still pick at things when I get warmer days this winter.

Throughout this whole project I’ve been taking advantage of the local building supply that’s all of a half mile away from the house. Today it only took me three trips but the insulation was taken care of.

Then there’s the conduit. When the concrete was poured I thought ahead to go under the sidewalk next to the shop. Since then there’s been a stake marking where that stopped. Needless to say, digging a trench in a mountain town is no joke.

I only got about a third of the way. It’s slow going. Still small amounts of progress.

Those people are suckers.

 

It was cold this morning so I didn’t get out there right away. Managed another 10’! :banana:

Had a friend come over this morning to hang insulation with me. Still need to finish framing the gable ends and then hang plastic sheet and nailers on the walls. I’m not too far off from framing the loft and air compressor closet.

I need power soon.
