  • Shop/storage project Nearing Completion ! ! !

    Woo-Hoo ! ! ! ! !

    After 21 months of frustration with getting a building permit, (don't ask...grrr...) footers are dug, and poured... [8D]

    Floor pour scheduled this week, followed by a 4-week cure before steel erection can begin... [8D]

    Having issues getting photobucket to load pics, but I did finally get one of the footer dig loaded...



    WooHoo, Think I may have one of the footer pour and 1st course of block started...



    Block will be bond-beamed, then used as the form for the footer pour, then the wainscotting of Splitface SMU will continue up to a height of 5 ft, with the metal exterior wall sitting atop the wainscot @ approx 12 ft to the eave... [8D]

    Building is 50Wx60L, with 17ft eaves, one 14x14 door for RV/boats, etc. two 16Wx10H doors for "normal" vehicles, and one 16Wx12H for "just incase" height needs (ala a PU with a camper, or a boat with a "T-Top", etc. (ALL dimensions in feet)

    At the moment there will be NO lighting, nor running water to the building. After spending nearly $25K on legal and engineering fees in order to get the damned permit, Am going to need to see where the budget is when the base building is up, before adding any of those niceties... []

    Awesome...so glad you finally waded through all the ugly bureaucracy and finally got the green light, and am also so glad at your age you can brag about a "Steel Erection" Most of us can not...LOL...

      Steve - you've been around long enough to know that without pictures it didn't happen. []

              This is the tank, so, while I do want a subject change, it doesn't have to be "Back to fishing".

              How bout a shop description?

              AND MORE IMPORTANT...When can we expect to see Jeep build start back? [][]

              Congrats! Looking forward to seeing updates.

                Updated post #one with some of the requested info... Am having a dickens of a time with photo bucket at the moment (nothing new really), so will try to get more pics up as I get time to futz with PB...

                As for the "steel erection" reference Mi-Dave so kindly dropped in my lap, I'm gonna let that pass, and leave the interpretation to the imagination of the adults here... (IE: back in your court Dave... LOL...)

                As for the Jeep project Chuck, I first need to clear out my workspace, as it is currently over-run with "storage crap" (another big reason for the current bldg project), but I fully intend to get back on it once the bldg. is done, and all the "toys" I've had in rented storage since 1987, get to come home, and the offending "stuff" has a place other than in the middle of my workspace... []

                AND... Once I've cleared out all four 10x20 rented lockers of the cars & parts I've collected, the "fun" will begin of deciding which get to stay, (IE: those I realistically have the time and funds, to complete in my lifetime) and those which will be sent down the road for others to use/enjoy...

                      I have a second 9000 lb. two-post asymmetrical lift similar to the one in the attached garage, that will be going in eventually. Lots of "stuff" to get relocated out of rented storage before I tackle that install... .

                        Slight delay on the floor pour, due to un-cooperative weather. Re-scheduled for Thursday of this week...
