It’s been nearly a month since my last update. My progress has been slow, mostly due to the heat.
Lets talk about a wood shop.
The last time I updated 2 out of 4 walls were framed without openings. Below you will see all walls have been framed, openings trimmed out in wood to make door and window installation easier and half of the sheathing is installed.
Here is a view of the north and west side. You can see the siding on the ground that will be the last part of this project. I really think the purple is pretty, Im thinking about leaving it go as is. This is just the color National Gypsum makes their exterior grade gypsum board.
There is a view out the windows that the work bench will sit below.
All wall sheathing is up
A couple views from inside. It gives me an idea of how much space I really have to work with
Here is a picture of the VCT that will be on the floor when the building envelope is water tight. Its called Bisque by Mannington. I wanted something close to the color of sawdust and dirt.
That’s about it for now. I can say that I’m sitting here itching from the purple wallboard. The paper contains some kind of fiberglass. One touch to the skin makes you itch for days. I’m pretty happy with the progress. Next weekend I hope to have a roof over all my work. Ive learned that the heat is more bearable if you start out in the morning and work through the day. The increase in temperature is more gradual and doesn’t seem as bad as when you come out of working in the A/C.
Thanks For Looking!
