Man thats looking sharp! When we finished the wiring and I came home, I brought something home with me I didn't expect.....Jealousy. The Bible says don't covet thy neighbors things, but it didn't say anything about my uncle's shop. LOL

 

And you should be jealous of the nice headphones I found today.....you missing a pair are ya?   :smilewink:   I can mail them to you, or hang onto till you're down, whatever you wish.

Over lap is good, just makes the joint stronger! Earphones? You need them to jam whilst milking!

 Just curious what you going to do for insulation in the attic. I don't see anything above your ceiling panels.

That is looking good. That can be tough, working above your head on a ceiling.

I noticed this as well. Are you just relying on your roof insulation to be enough?

Just the double bubble foil sided under the roof.  We will wait & see how this works, and if needed, we will blow insulation on top of the ceiling later.  This double bubble really works well though, as it's keeping the cold inside when it's warmer outside, so I figure it'll do pretty well as-is.  Walls have bubble and 3 1/2" fiberglass insulation.

Yes it is, and my neck kept locking up on me today.  Doc says I likely have a herniated disc or similar pinching a nerve.  Causes both my arms to tingle badly, and now all 4 fingertips on both hands are numb most of the time.

 

And I found porcelain fixtures on Zoro for just 99 cents each.  Having these in most our barns, I ordered 15 of them, and total including shipping was only $21.
