Lots more progress since the last post.

Sheathing done.

Tar paper.

Delivering the roofing.

Getting exciting. I’ll bet you can’t wait to get it closed up and heat-able. Looks like a great space.

I really like seeing a shop come together….Makes me want to build another one to put beside the one I already have…..Hey..That’s not a shop dog….that’s a watch dog….Don’t you see him/her watching…? When it turns cold, then maybe a shop dog..!! Making good progress….It won’t be long now…!!

You have it all wrapped and sealed for now, must be a great feeling watching your dreams and plans
becoming your own shop. Thank you for sharing.
