« Part 3: Next come the walls... Part 4 of New Workshop series Part 5: Got all the roof struts done and the doors on... »

We got some major work done today. Three quarters of the flooring down, the remaining wall panels and the major roof struts up. My son David is earning some serious good karma by doing 95% of the work. The weather even cooperated, by not raining while we were working and being overcast enough for us to work outside. It’s starting to look like a workshop at last. Tomorrow we will do more roof struts and maybe even get some shingles up.

Bermuda? you live there? Where is the nearest hardware store? Cuba or Carolina!

Now about your Son doing 95% of the work, its possibly due to you still in your tuxedo, is that what you were wearing when you became shipwrecked?

Or do you serve the Heinekens in it!

Anyway on a more serious note the shed looks great, the boys are doing a great job for you.
The weather must play havoc on Cast surfaces.
Keep up the supply of those Heinekens !!

-- Regards Robert

Opps,

I just checked out Bermuda on Google, its not just a desert island that Gilligan was shipwrecked on afterall.
It even has an international airport, so if my attempt at semi humour offended please accept my apolgies !!

Looks like a great place to live !

Looking good!
I’m fighting raindrops myself with my new shop going up. Had to call in the reinforcements tonight to get the bay window in before the rain and wind start in the dark hours and continue through tomorrow. It would be easier for me if I had a beautiful beach to go to when I wasn’t working…

Hi Rob,

I enjoyed your posts! No offense at all. Heineken is the beer of choice in Bermuda, and the oil on which my sons’ engine runs on. Have to always have my fridge fully stocked, otherwise I can’t get any work out of them.

Bermuda’s weather play havoc on all surfaces. We are never more than 3/4 mile from the ocean and salt is in the air. Bermuda may be the only place on earth where stainless steel rusts! The sun is brutal, and I’m out in it again today, by myself at the moment and I’m suffering. Anyway thanks for your comments. – Les

Hi Mike,

I know that feeling, I said to my son yesterday that when we were finished we should jump in the pool, but by time you are finished you are so damned tired you can;’t even do that! Well good luck with your project. Is it on Lumberjocks? -Les

Yes it is Les! I am new to Lumberjocks so I hope I did it right and I also hope to start putting up some of my projects as I find time. With the weather forecast for this week, I may have plenty of time to play on here!
