Congrats Randy.
I’ve been following and it’s good to see you are getting to the “light at the end of the tunnel” stage.
I commend you on your commitment to getting it finished before you start using it. If it were me, the soffits may have waited ….. and waited …... and waited. Out of sight – out of mind…. :-)

Thanks Paul, I have to admit that thought had crossed my mind several times but.. The trim boards along with the soffits had been sitting on my rear deck for sometime and the clutter was just weighing heavy but now all focus is on the inside.

Randy,

Looks like you’re rounding the corner heading for home. Hey when Norm Abrams rebuilt his cabinets he used plywood and his Porter Cable Omni Jig. He got tear out. Looks like you made some drawers that will work.

Do you plan to trim out the windows?

Yes to trimming out the windows Tom, right now I am going to focus getting the inside done first.

Blackie, it is the little touches at the end that make the job look right. You have done such a fine job on the rest that it is easy to get stalled on smaller details…at least it is that way with me. I hate making drawers! They just wear me out.

Man, that’s an almost seamless addition now – appart from the rooftop, for good reasons.

Thanks Alan and Thomas, Tom haha yep I was using my Ipad with voice activation to say what I wanted as the keys are sometimes to small for my fingers and it picked up what the TV was saying.

Randy…No doubt making this addition has been a fun undertaking but there will nothing better than being finished with nothing more to do on the building and having to concentrate on money maker projects.

yes the answer is Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, they both sing the delightful song that you can find by googling it, i listened to it again this morning…oh the old days of the west, when riding your horse and doing cattle drives, simple days in many ways, no computers, no hustle and bustle…., well anyways…enjoy the days to come in your new shop.

Grizz,

I grew up with all the cowboy movies that filled the empty air waves. Then came weekly cowboy stories with simple plots and endings. The hero always won. It is a good song! In my beat and hippie days I thought about the alternative meaning . LOL! Ever see the misfits with Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe? Last of cowboy days.

Randy,

Lone Ranger and William Tell overture.

When I was a kid I wanted to become a cowboy or an airplane pilot. I became neither but learned to love nature..

paint will hide any imperfections, but their may be character in the wood even if it is cdx, unless you chose one side good? Then shellac/sealer and gel stain might be way to go. Decisions…..

That spalting wood was happening in my shop.
