It looks very nice :thumbs:  Never want a fire but I am jealous of you being able to build just as you want, I'm always trying to fix somebody else s poor workmanship around my place.

 

I'm still having trouble visualizing a tractor getting through the doors ? Or is this a different kind-of-shop ? I must have missed something, I'll get some coffee and go back to the start.

 

Good looking building no-matter what :thumbs:

Jim

It's mostly for woodworking & just tinkering around!  If I need to, I can use loading ramps to bring one of the tractors in.

Looks Fan-Tastic!   

:worshippy1:

Don't forget to leave one nail out so you can tell the county assessor that "Its not done yet".  :smilewink:

I put the gutter screen on this morning, hopefully, it will keep the Maple buds & seeds out!

 

Been working on the wiring, most of the inside is done except for a dedicated circuit for the 120V air conditioner.  Outside lights yet to hook up!

We had an 4" hole say cutting through corrugated tin. Man that was a wrist breaker! Also use that to cut holes in truck beds for the goose neck mount.

If you had to do it from a ladder I don't envy you.

Heating/air conditioning guy came today, change of plan, he'll be installing a 9,000 BTU "heat pump mini-split" next week! I was thinking propane since we already use it, but he assured me this will be just as economical because of the efficiency & quieter.

Called the electrician & he'll be here the first of the week too!

Mini-split is installed, guy will be back in the morning to vacuum & check for leaks, his gauges didn't fit this unit!

 

Electrician showed up just after noon & put the entrance cable in & hooked up the breaker box for me.

 

Next will be the city inspection, then I can finish the inside!   :dancingbanana:

I'm waiting on a 14,000 BTU dual zone minisplit to be installed in my addition.  They sound super nice, and supposed to be really efficient and do a nice job.  I am hoping.

I've been diddling around inside mostly, waiting on the city building inspector, he finally showed up this morning.  PASSED!!!   :dancingbanana:   Now, on with the insulation & enclosing the walls!

Since the building inspector was here, I've been insulating & covering the walls, 7/16" OSB for the west & part of the south wall:  Shop 2016 045.JPG  Shop 2016 046.JPG

 

East & north walls will get 1/4" mahogany underlay plywood:  Shop 2016 047.JPG  with some 1/4" pegboard over the benches.  Planned to use some "slatboard" to the left of the double doors & behind the walk-in door, but it's not accessible at this time!   :wallbanging:
