« Part 1: Getting Started Part 2 of New Workshop series Part 3: What a difference a week makes »

Not much to show as concrete is slow to take shape, or at least it seems to me. The builder Steve B got on the job today after spending a week floating Idaho’s Salmon, the River of No Return. I didn’t know it but the Salmon river gorge is deeper than the Grand Canyon. I’m going to have to see that.

We’re ready to pour concrete and that will happen sometime this week, Friday at the latest. Here’s a few pictures of the Pex tubing attached to the wire mesh. Underneath is a layer of bubble wrap insulation. When the monoslab gets poured the mesh with the tubing will get lifted into and suspended in the concrete. In the second photo you can see the supply and the return lines. There will be three zones in the shop and a fourth into a radiator in old shop.

More Pex, different angle

Lastly I couldn’t help but include a picture of last nights sunset. Till next week. Joe

You are really going to enjoy that floor heat. I was born and raised across the border North of you in SASK.Cdn. I understand your weather very well. I really like when someone starts there project RIGHT.

Nice…the birth of a new shop. It always brings a tear of joy to my eye.
