Constructing My New 30 X 30 Shop #7: Roof Framing and Sheeting

272 days ago by helluvawreck | 37 comments »

I apologize for the delay in getting this part of my blog up. I’ve been a little busy and I’ll try not to let it happen again. I’m sorry that I don’t have a more logical group of pictures for this part but the pictures should speak for themselves with little or no commentary from me. You should be able to see that there will be an attic storage space. I appreciate you reading my blog about my shop a...

We originally thought that we might need to build a temporary dirt bridge to allow the concr...

Constructing My New 30 X 30 Shop #2: Clearing Site and Preparing Foundation for Pouring

324 days ago by helluvawreck | 31 comments »

Unfortunately I lost some pictures of clearing the underbrush and the trees that needed to come down. This was the most convenient site that I could find for the shop. Unfortunately it required a substantial foundation because of the slope which added to the cost somewhat, but in the long run I think that it will pay off because it is easily accessible to the basement and main floor of the house. It is also near the barn where I will be able to store some, lumber, jigs, and hardware. T...
