I don't have one of those. :oh_shucks:  It would have to be a good (real good) cold

weather runner.

Being a carpenter I have really been enjoying your project. I like your choice of materials & the design. I hate watching people build cutting corners knowing the structure won't last. On the gang plank thought...Have you considered using a dumb waiter. Imagine your gang plank laying flat on the ground. A cable attached at each top corner running to the top of the opening & through the wall on a pulley. From this pulley would be the other end of the cable with a weight balanced to the planks weight on the inside of the wall. You may not have enough travel before the weight hits the floor. If this is the case you could cut an opening in the floor so the weight drops below the floor. All the mechanics would be inside & simple to lower & raise with the right balance. There would be no noise of a gas engine....not that I don't like the noise & fragrance of a good running engine.  :D You could also lock it easily once you have it raised & closed.

I got a fair bit done in the last couple of days.

Windows in the back wall, and gangplank door reinstalled,

using the old trailer winch system. Sorry Jim, I beat you to it. :D

I then removed the siding off the original wall. My original plan was to remove the lower

horizontal strapping, leave the shelves, and mirror them in the new room. I changed my mind

as it looked too busy, for what the shelves where accomplishing.

So I removed all the shelves, left the quarter point posts in temporarily, and the

added crutches to support the new ridge beam. I also gusseted the ridge beam

to the posts, and added a collar tie.

Then I got started on the new shelf.

Thanks Kenny.

Much better that way, isn't it. I'll put 1" oak on as the shelf

material, just where the wheels are.

If it looks like the 3 horizontals are going to sag, with the

weight of the MF5, 6, and 832 on it, I'll run some 1/4"

chain up to the ridge beam.

Like Kenny said.   I have found clutter can happen quick enough by accident, no point in building it in. What you've done really looks great.

Looks great Will. Do you secure the tractors down to the shelf to prevent them from rolling off?

Oops, I forgot to put the chokes on that little MF24s. (but it's in gear)

The other ones have wedge blocks screwed to the shelves.

That's the one from Kenora, that you got me on to in Aug. last year. I've been waiting

for it to get here. It arrived this morning. My daughter was driving home from BC, so I got her

to stop, and stuff it in the trunk. :D She was pretty happy about that.
