Started this project last year by poring the concrete pad for my propane tank and air compressor. Had to wait for the weather to warm up enough to get back outside for a few days to construct the enclosure for the tank and compressor. The propane tank had to be located outside the building anyway so why not enclose it along with the air compressor to free up space in the workshop and also help cut down of the noise when the compressor is running.
Here are the work in progress photos from start to finish with the exception of final painting.
Photo of the concrete pad this spring with propane tank in place and new compressor ready to unbox and install after enclosurer is completed.
Framing of the additional store area for propane tank and compressor. Becasue of size of pad ending up using 12 inch on center framing.
With the window located directly above part on the structure had to work with a very low pitch roof. Plan to install an air conditioner in the window later this year so the roof will work in helping support the unit.
Completed installing the roof sheeting and tar paper.
Installation of the siding was the next task at hand.
Completed installing the roof shingles after making a run to HD for matching shingles.
Last to complete was hanging door and installing trim.
