The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #16: More Progress on the Insullation and walls

1221 days ago by cmckerliesr | 4 comments »

Well there it is, the first wall covered.Two sheets of OSB attached to 2X3’s that were cut in half length wise. The 2 X 3’s were 8 feet long, and I cut them in half, then every 3rd position that was indented I drilled 3 holes through the wall. I then had my son hold a 2X3 centered over the holes and I went outside to drive 1 inch metal roofing screws through the holes and into the 2X3’s. I drilled holes that were slightly smaller then the screws so they would bite on th...

Finally, My Dream Shop #18: In Case Your Wondering......

I’ve been hanging insulation and putting up OSB behind where the Cyclone will hang. We haven’t put the cone up yet because it would make it difficult to finish the wall behind. So tomorrow we’ll finish the cyclone and I’ll show pics…Mike and I decided we would brag on our professional job and offer to install anyone’s for the price of a plane ticket and a thousand dollars, plus a liberal expense account !! It has been a bear because of the way we hung it...

Thanks all for the crossed eyes, toes, and fingers…....we finally did it ! All I have now is the temporary garage door removal, the infamous toilet at the end of my driveway, and maybe some sodding of the damaged lawn.

Finally, My Dream Shop #16: Well, Another Problem (?) is Found !

2414 days ago by Calgirl | 9 comments »

Surprise! Surprise! The inspector found another problem that he just happened to miss on his previous 5 visits! This time, the step into the building is too high. So the contractor has to come back out and throw some dirt under the entry door. I called the city to complain about this redundant, stupid, wasteful process but of course after sitting on hold for about 20 minutes, the phone was answered by someone’s recorder. I did leave a message, but have little faith that it will he...

Finally, My Dream Shop #15: Ongoing Saga

2414 days ago by Calgirl | 3 comments »

Well, we’re at the “Final Inspection” tomorrow. We’ve had two inspections since I last had a blog entry and of course, they found two more small things for the carpenters to do.We did get final approval on the electrical. The city has given us a final on the plans. Now, we just need the final on the carpentry. The GC is very upset, however, I have resolved myself to endless inspections and endless interruptions, so I am no longer anxious about the matter. I guess I have partially given ...

Finally, My Dream Shop #12: Dec 3 is THE day

2424 days ago by Calgirl | 11 comments »

Hopefully all the building etc. will be over today as the inspectors are coming to do the final inspection. I have a “temp” metal garage door where my sliding door should be to pass the inspection. Nothing much has changed as I haven’t been able to do anything that involves covering the interior walls until the final inspection, so I have been contenting myself with moving machinery in and building an assembly table. I set up my new Bosch SCMS and it is wonderful! It is ...
