« Part 1: I have to change my signature line! Part 2 of Outfitting the workshop series Part 3: Progress... sort of »

Well Jenn and I spent the best part of Saturday screwing OSB to rafters. It is looking good, and is taking a long time. We did buy two tools to accomplish this a Ryobi circular saw and a Dewalt 3/8 drill. We’ve gotten tired of waiting for cordless drills to recharge, so we went with a corded drill for this. I had forgotten how powerful they are, we were driving screws right through the OSB without thinking becasue we are so used to the battery drills bogging down. A real pleasure to crank in the screws and not worry about the charge. I’ll have to post pictures tomorrow.

Progress really started to bog down as we have to figure out how to shift the mounts for the garage doors and openers. Still head scratching over that :-)
