Finished up the ceiling lights this morning, just using an extension cord from another shed for now, but at least I have light!  Shop 2016 026 - Copy.JPG

 

Heard a loud pickup this afternoon, it was the seamless gutter crew to put the gutter on the west side of the new shop.  Shop 2016 027 - Copy.JPG

 

I put the clock & thermometer on the north end, facing the deck & the house!

Back to work on the shop today, this morning I moved a 30" square piece of concrete & dug out for a 4' x 5' pad that will be at the base of the ramp. 

This afternoon I started on the 4' x 10' deck at the south doors, it will have one step down from the door & two steps off the deck on the south & a 3' wide ramp to the east (driveway). 15463d1458338802t-shop-today-shop-2016-0

Too cold the next few nights to mix the concrete, so I'll do that the first of the week. Hope to finish the deck itself tomorrow & the ramp after the concrete sets!

Deck /porch is done except for the ramp that I'll put on the right side when I get the concrete pad poured.  Shop 2016 030.JPG

Got the concrete pad poured this morning, 20-60 lb bags, plus a little extra Portland in each batch.  Shop 2016 032.JPG  Shop 2016 035.JPG

 

Hope to get the ramp built later this week!

Off to Des Moines today, 262 miles round trip.  Picked up two desks & two heavy legal sized file cabinets for storage in the new shop.  Shop 2016 036.JPG  They'll make the bases for the two workbenches!

I always add extra Portland to those redi-mix bags of concrete too.  Not near enough in the stuff.

Same here! Makes for a better finish on top too!

I've had trouble in the past with straight mix not holding up when I used it for stepping stones.  Some of it didn't even look gray enough!

Even when shipping to a jobsite where it will be tested, it ends up weak. I was on a job where we had so much trouble and a couple weeks of finger pointing and everyone blaming every body. It wasn't a good experience.

Back in the day we got a commercial, high acid resistant mix for the kennel runs when we boarded dogs. It was fantastic, never flaked or eroded and was strong and crack resistant. I wonder if it is even available any more? At the time My Olde Deere thought it would make a wonderful shop floor. Pricy, but worth it in the long run.

Hooked the west side downspout into the underground pipe that takes care of the dog cooling tank this afternoon.
