« Part 6: Putting the Exterior Sheeting on Walls Part 7 of Constructing My New 30 X 30 Shop series Part 8: Siding, Heat Pump, Insulation, Steps and Deck »

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 and I’ll try to do a better job on the next part.

Looking like real progress.

Coming along beautifully!

Looks like you’re going to beat the winter snows / rain, etc.

Are you going to be using the attic at all for any storage?

Thanks for the update… Looking forward to the next one!

When you’re through with this, you can go help David with his New shop! LOL

That is a perfect six for you shop. Mine is 20’X40’ and I wish I could have built it wider.

Lookin good! Getting the roof on before winter is more important than the blog. You can blog with the snow flies ;-)
