A floor and a wall.

More walls.


Now there is an inside and an outside.

That’s some great progress, moving along nicely. I missed that you were planning this, but it will be great to have.

Brings back memories, I sheeted all my walls on the pad before placing them, took a few strong friends to get them up! Looking real good just need that roof on!

I’m happy for you. I got my “dream shop” eleven years ago and was able to put all the things I had learned from lesser iterations into it. I still love it and go up there almost every morning ….... when I’m home in Canada anyway.
I’m glad to see you realizing the dream.

so glad your getting your dream shop, you must be so anxious and waiting to set it up, my heavens you have such a beautiful place, i love Montana, its wide open spaces sure do let the heart wonder, i cant wait to see more, winter is coming , i sure do hope you will have it dried in by then, how do you plan to heat it, ive got a large wood stove in mine, wood heat is perfect, i also sheeted the walls then stood them up, it was so much easier…well enjoy the rest of the journey.

Bondo,

The shop is coming together nicely…Isn’t it exciting to see progress when building something, especially when you build a shop so you can build something….The daily progress is what I liked when I had mine built…Everyday was different….But what’s really exciting is when it’s built, and you move in and start setting it up…...Keep us posted on the progress….I really like looking at shops, and everyone’s setups….

Looking very good, you have lots of windows to enjoy the scenery, I am happy that you are in Mineral
County and not the city of Missoula, their building codes are a little tough and weird at times, but for
the most part, they do insure that new buildings are safe. There was a small group of retired Alberton
men that used to gather for coffee in one of the men’s shop a few years ago. Can not remember the
name of the gentleman I was talking to, but if you are not careful, they may have a new meeting place.
Will be patiently waiting for more pictures of your progress. You should have it enclosed before winter
hits, unless Mother Nature turns nasty on us. I would offer to come up and help, but you probably do
not need a stupidvisor.

Bluepine, actually, I am in Missoula County, just inside the line. It took 9 weeks for some county bureaucrat to look at the building permit application, and put her blessing on it. So we lost the summer waiting for that. We were told in the beginning that it would take a week and a half! Thanks for the offer of help. When I will really need help is when I move my tools from the garage into the shop. That is a ways off at this point. Trusses going up tomorrow.

If you need help moving, just shoot me a message with directions, I do have a 4X4 so I should be able to
make it even if we get hit with snow. Are you going to put a metal roof on, or do you have to worry
about forest fires? The County has been real good with me, but the City is going to annex us shortly
and then things will get tougher.

Don’t ya just love em? And they wonder why so many do stuff without permits.
You can fire me a message too when the time comes to move. I’ll help if I can.

Are you off the Petty Cr exit? That background looks familiar
