Well, four trees were supposed to be removed today in preparation for preparing the foundation for my workshop. However a storm front came through last night and today with rain and wind so hopefully Tuesday will be the “Tree Removal Party”. The tree company is the same company I used to thin my existing trees and to remove one that was lifting the driveway. With the hurrican threat we face here in Florida, it is important to keep your trees thinned and the dead branches removed. They tend to make rather large holes in your roof when they come down! Josh, the main climber, is afraid of heights, believe it or not, so it will be interesting to see how he handles the pine which is way up there in the clouds! I feel for him because I have acrophobia also but I have an additional problem….I get an almost irresistable urge to jump! The only way I can get back from the edge is to back away facing the danger.
Anyway, the water table is about 2 feet below the surface here, and the shop area is in the lowest portion of my property, just behind the garage. The contractor will truck in fill, do some of the tamping and delineate the perimeter. Then I will have two days to place all the 6” S & D pipe for the dust control system. While I’m at it, I’m going to run some pipe for the air compressor too.
I am uploading a draft of my workshop layout for any jocks who might like to comment. I look forward to any ideas or suggestions.
