« Part 10: Roofing Paper and Drip Edges Done Part 11 of A Small Woodworking Shop Expansion series Part 12: Soffit and Siding Underlayment »

Well its been almost two weeks since I have made any updates on my shop expansion so here is a
a quick update and a look at whats next.

I had most of the roof shingled by Christmas and only needed another bundle to finish it up. Had some snow and
cold stormy weather from Christmas day and for about a week after. But as soon as things cleared up I finished the roof about a week ago.

Then I started to put in the collar ties . Only got a few up and then I took a break and have stayed inside and
tried to catch up on some house-cleaning chores that I had gotten behind on.

Getting some mild weather again, so today I went out to the shed and just cleaned up and organized things
a bit. Had quite a mess out there. Usually I will try to pick up after myself ,when each day of work is done.

But in my rush to get the roof done and beat the winter storms that moved through around Christmas , I got slack with the cleaning up and I had scrap wood and tools everywhere.

So thats done, cleaned up and open to move around.And it looks like we will be getting some really mild weather over the next four or five days.

So the plan is to get an early start tomorrow and see how close I can get to putting in insulation.

My focus tomorrow will be putting in gabel studs and then collar ties along the lenth of the roof.

Was going to get a new table saw by using the HF 20% off coupon on the 31st of Dec. I was so close to going and getting it but just couldn’t pull the trigger. Want to get the shop in more of a state of completion
before I bring more stuff in. Its still pretty crowded out there at the moment.

I did order the Rockler FX router lift and assembled my Bench Dog Pro Top table. I really hope to get a lot of
use out of my router set-up as I have spent close to 700 dollars and still don’t own a single router bit yet !
