« Part 2: Ready to pour Part 3 of New Workshop series Part 4: Still moving quickly »

3 full days since the concrete was poured and things are moving quickly. Here is a picture from a distance.

Shop from a Distance

The site work is largly finished and most of the framing is done.

Site work done

There is good progress on the sheeting and I’m guessing that it will be done tomorrow, before the weekend.


Decided to sheet the interior with OSB instead of sheet-rock or plywood. Sheet-rock would have looked better but not as durable. Plywood would have cost about $10/sheet more.

You can see one of the window openings in this picture. That tree will keep a lot of the heat from the sun away.
Out the front

That’s all for this week’s posting.

Joe, this does look pretty good. It is always fun to be part of shop’s evolution so keep the pictures coming.

OSB on the interior walls is what I did.
You may want to seal or paint it for easy clean up and light reflection.

I do hope you plan to insulate the shop? Nice size, location, view, in short, perfect!
