Very Happy to hear it was a simple issue and not a compressor replacement.

Wasn't feeling good last night & was 2am getting to sleep.  So my batteries ran down on me a few minutes ago.  Time to rest a few minutes before milking time.  Been up & down ladders literally a hundred times today & my body, especially my back feels it.  Gonna hit the hay extra early tonight I hope.

Lots of mistakes made along the way, but Dad always says a good carpenter knows how to cover his mistakes.  I must be a much better carpenter than I think I am! LOL

  I've been taking my day off the farm to cut some Bush Hog decals.  3 complete sets for D4-10.  My eyes may be permanently crossed!  My decal making is so difficult with the little time I have to do it, so Bush Hog decals is likely gonna be my only offering, at least for now.  I made another D4-10 set just 3 or 4 days ago.

 

Today's work:

Had to add 7 Cat loader buckets of sawdust to the large heifer section of the calf barn today, then I headed to the new shop.  I got the last of the red metal screwed onto the outside!  I have about 20 red screws left.....talk about cutting it close!

 

P_20150202_1557401.jpg

 

All I like on the outside is trimming the man door out, and the roof edge to end wall outer trim.  But later this summer when things slow down, the original 12" section of roofing has to come off.  Rained a lot yesterday, and there's just too many leaks from the old roofing nails we used when we built the original machinery shed.  As a shed, the leaks wouldn't be so bad, but for a shop, no leak is allowed.  So we'll pull the old roofing, lay down double bubble, then replace the roofing using screws.  This section needs the insulation values of the double bubble, plus any small leak that might occur later and the bubble insulation will carry it on down & out.

  All the overhead door trim is on, so I'm ready for the door guy when he can get here.  He thinks mid-week, but we'll see.  Once the doors are in, then we can use a jet heater to warm things for interior work.  Gotta get as much done before planting time as i can, but I also have equipment repair needing done before planting as well.

 And I also got a little Hogzilla seat time today tilling one large calf pen to stir up the sawdust.  Was packed kinda tight on the top.
