I think I learned a valuable lesson in the last 2 days......
I better stick to appraising dents and not go into a career in framing!!!
I've had the materials for this little shop addition laying in the shop for a month or so just waiting for me to have time to get going on this project. I've been wanting to get the lawn mower, tiller, shovels etc...etc...etc...etc.......the heck out of my shop for a long time. Finally it looks like I'm about to get my wish.
I had this little room built on the back of the shop just to house the compressor when the shop was built 11 years ago. You can see it's a lovely thing. Quite the exercise in craftsmanship. It simply wasn't even worth painting when I painted the shop. Besides, it was a great excuse to build something a little bigger.
I took off yesterday afternoon. Payton had the afternoon off as well. So we got the old POS off the back of the shop and the 4X4's in the ground in so we could be on to some framing today. Payton had to work so LOML was elected to help. It seemed like progress was really going slow, but we did manage to get the thing framed. No small feat for us because Cheryl knows just about as much about framing as I do. ZERO
Here it is from the other side. It's 9 X 9. I am using a metal roof so I could use a pretty flat pitch to get as much height as possible. I want to jamb as much stuff in there as I can so the high storage sure will come in handy for all that crap I'll never need but don't want to throw away. I will be using the same siding/cedar trim so it should match the shop pretty well.
Tomorrow Cheryl and I have to head over to my Mom's house and starting interior painting over there so I probably won't be able to get back on this project for a while. I sure am anxious to get it done so maybe I'll play sick from work a day or two next week and see if I can get it done. Wish me luck!!!
Thanks for looking,
