« Part 4: Building supplies have arrived! Part 5 of New Shop! series Part 6: Big progress and a big storm. »

Today at 7:00am the builders came and started on the shop. They began by laying out the additions with wood and rope. They then used a Skid- Steer to drill multiple holes for the main posts. They hit about every pipe in the ground the could have with the auger, but we had the water for those pipes turned off previous to the drilling just in case. The posts were then put into the holes and were suppose to be cemented in the ground today, but with the combination of a storm and a late cement mixer, it won’t happen until tomorrow morning.

This is the profile for the rear of the shop. The addition to the right is going to be the woodworking wing, and the addition to the left is going to be a car bay. The two very large 15 layered posts are for the 32’ bi-fold door.

The soon to be woodworking shop:
