I'll have some more pics later today. It's coming along real well. I'm a very happy camper!

Got the floor done. Here's the pics.

Filled the voids with garden soil and washed it down. Early next week, I will wash a mix of mortar and cement into the remaining voids. I had 5 paint buckets full of gravel that I put down for the drive. Next is the North wall. Enjoy!

Looking great! I bet your neighbors think you're putting in a patio.

When I fire up the GT's, they all run for some reason. Keeps them out of my hair, though.

It is strangely similar though. Hmmmmm!

Looks great Kenny. It looks like you'll soon be able to tackle your next tractor project.

Thanks everyone, but it's not finished yet. Just glad that part is over. My arms and shoulders feel the effects of man handling all the blocks (25 lbs. each, several times to get them fairly flat). Need to start getting things placed.

Looks great Kenny! Will you finish the rest of the floor or are you leaving it the way that it is?

I miss counted on blocks, had 91. Got 88 down, so no more to place. I'd like to put down 'crusher run' (fine dust, very small gravel), but don't want to pay for 3 tons when all I can haul is 1/2 ton. I guess they don't want home owner business.

Nice project, Kenny. That will be a real improvement you'll enjoy for a long time (once your body recuperates!)

Got some more done today. Got the posts anchored down. I'm pretty proud of my weld job, considering I'm welding blind.

Built the frame work for the North wall. I decided to put in both windows for ventilation and light. A little tricky figuring everything out, but I think it will work.

That's all for now.

Your tractor port is looking great Kenny. Thanks for the updates and pics. I'm sure you will enjoy it when it's finished.
