Here is a shot of the siding going on:

Now to grade and cleanup the outside. I am going to leave the doors and windows open to help the concrete dry right.

Shop – Finishing the Foundation


They preped the foundation today, I tried to put as much of the electrical conduit in the foundations as I can. There are 4 zones per side. One in the floor and 3 about10 feet apart. I will show more pictures when I get to the wiring.



You can also see the 4 floor plug boxes. The main conduit is 1 inch and the side branches are 3/4 inch.


Here they are Pouring the cement:


Slab all finished up.

It took 3 days, a stuck cement truck, a dumped cement load,and a lot of Honey Buns. But is is finished.

New Shop Framed up

Started framing today! All the 6×6 timbers are up.

Outside almost done, roof trusses ready to go up:

All Framed up, I am laying in the electrical conduit tomorrow and foundation pour on Thursday.

Found the water main to the house!

Well we needed 3 more loads of dirt for the shop, after 9 loads already delivered to the same spot we discovered that the water line was not where we thought it was:
After a little digging and cleaning it was ready to fix. Really sucks when it is cold BTW:

Quick and dirty Repair! It is cold and the family needs water, like many things you dont realize how much until it is gone!
No to continue with the shop!

New Shop – Not enough dirt!

Started on the dirt work for the foundation and we ran out of dirt! Lucky for me the guys at NBC Materials are hooking me up first thing tomorrow morning. Here are a couple shots of what got done today:

Hope to have more to post tomorrow.
