Well, I just awoke from a “nap” and feel much invigorated. Watching this building go up is really exhausting! I went to the BORG today and got an attic ladder which the builders said that they would install for me. With that ladder, I can add storage space for all kinds of goodies that are little used but just can’t be thrown out!
When they were ready for the roofing felt, they found that the suppliers had sent 15# instead of 30#, so another correction delivery had to be made and now the shop is covered with the 30# and ready for the shingles. All the threaded rods were thightened down and I am assured that this building is going nowhere come the next hurricane. Tomorrow morning the siding starts going up. The Gen’l. Contractor and I have struck a deal where his men will install the shingles Saturday and I will pressure wash the garage which they will paint along with the new shop on Monday. The electrician and I are to decide whether Friday or Monday is good for the both of us to get the electrical work completed. So, I won’t be moving in until mid next week.
If I could make myself wait just another two weeks for the cement slab to dry, I could epoxy paint the floor. Maybe I can fill the time with the insulation and getting the cyclone hooked up. I know it would be best to paint the floor before I move any machinery in, but the temptation is there to “get on with it.” I will be so nice to get the lathe and drill press out of my house and into the shop where it belongs. not to mention retrieving the garage space which is presently taken up with assorted woodworking machines. I want to install a thru wall A.C. and also place the humidifier in some out of the way place. Also, I have to decide what to cover the interior walls with. And then there is the compressed air piping…..come to think of it, I’ll just bet I can find all kinds of “work” to do to fill the time while the cement slab is drying out.
