ALL POSTS are in the ground!   :dancingbanana:   But my tail...it is a draggin!  I still have feeding chores to do, but no biggie.  Then it's shower time, and then I may pass out in my recliner.  NO rain yet.  It goes past near us in little patches, then just north all joins up for some good rains, but nothing at all here, and we can sure use some rain.

My work day is done.  All left to do is take a shower & crash.  I did snap a couple pics of the shop project.  

 

All "in-ground" posts are in.  There will be more interior posts, but they will go on top of the concrete & sill plate.

This shows the 2 door openings.  Left one will be 10 tall by 16' wide.  The other will be in the 12' of original shed section & will be 10' wide & 10' tall.

It's finally starting to look like something.

Been cutting hay today.  Just got started & had a blowout on the discbine.  No spare, so had to run to town for a 11x15L implement tire.  Was gonna be lazy & let him put it on, but he was gone on a tire emergency run, so I had to just buy the tire from his secretary & come home to change it.  Got the 20 acres cut.  This is my spring seeded alfalfa/orchard grass, but it didn't do well at all due to too dry after it was seeded.  One section is great though, so the next cutting of this section will make some great square baled hay for the young calves.  Swapped out night milking with Josh so he could take my grandson Case to the local fair.  So I'm out the door to milk cows.

Shop is coming right along, won't be anytime at all before you'll be repairing farm equipment in the new shop.

Just thinking out loud here. Are you going to be able to lock up the new shop since it's about the farthest from the house and can get to it without coming past your house?

Yep, it's getting locks, and maybe a type of security system.  The overhead doors we're getting are locking commercial type, and we'll be getting a steel man door.  Likely not have any windows at all, so thieves can't knock out glass that isn't there.  Well, the doors will have the windows in one section, but they would only allow a 10" thick guy to pass.....but then the druggies are usually skinny runts.  :wallbanging:

Glad to hear you have been thinking about security, it's always on my mind anymore.

Actually, I'm not sure about that.  In summer, I've found the clear roofing will bake you like a potato!  My cousin built a new shop & just used a clear roof cap, and it gives him a lot of light without a lot of area of direct sun.  With the roof, we can always unscrew metal & add clear if we want.  Some day we may end up putting a ceiling on the bottom of the trusses, so clear roofing would be pointless.

Looks good! What kind of feed grinder do you have (I see it in the background of one of the pictures)?
