    Getting the shop up to code

    When I bought the house the shop was just a metal frame with a roof and some what looked like used doors and windows. When my GC pulled the permits to finish we found it had been red tagged, hence the frame and roof during original construction.

    Since it is 1,050sq feet a footer is required or it had to be built on 2ft drained gravel base, neither was done. So they dug the footer today. It will underpin the concrete by 8 to 10 inches. Passed inpsection this afternoon and they will pour concrete tomorrow.

    Found the electric conduit just went through the slab so I will have to trench to the house. I have to redo the front walk at some point I will probably run the conduit under the walk then up across the open area. But 1st off is getting footer in and the building weathertight. Going with vertical hardie plank board and baton on the outside.

    Oh good grief that sucks.

    Correct me if I'm wrong; but aren't you the same guy that has the grinder pump issues with his new to him house? Either way, you have my sympathy, which is all I can offer from Colorado.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    Yup grinder pump is is fixed so now getting the shop done.

    I have a big solar panel I used to keep my boat charged because my parking spot was off another road on the back side of the lot. I plan to rig it up with some 12 volt led lights so we will have light inside until we run power.

    Was funny the wife was joking last night that we always went ah when we watched folks on TV buy a house a sink a bunch of into it. She said yup that is us. Grinder pump, finish shop, all new LED can Lights. Entire house paints. All of the extensive wood sanded lightly and re-stained and this time coated with poly. Last but not least all of the half finished trim work completed and the back inside steps completed and stained.

    Next Tuesday we get to wake up there.

    Have been busy moved to the new house yesterday. 3 men and a truck from the local United shop for 6 hrs plus an hour drive time came out right at $1,000. They got all of the big stuff moved including the exercise equipment into the basement.

    While they were unloading at the new house the crew show up to pour the footers on the shop. Took two loads, looks like they did good job. Hardie siding and it will be weather tight. Electric and interior finish is a future project.

    Skin time

    We had nice weather today so the crew started putting the skin on today. They are putting the 1/4 inch thick hardie board 4x8 sheet material up and bending all of the metal to cover the wood along the roof. They are using a vinyl board along the bottom which will not wick water like the edge of the Hardi cement product.

    They will finish the front Tomm and start on the battens. The Battenss that were delivered were not correct they smooth vs wood grain so they the lumber yard will be in to swap them out Friday.

    They got the big sheets on the front today and finished the flashing. Now they just need the wood grain batten replacements to finish it off.

    And yes the storage unit doors will go. We will put something up we can stain wood color to match the house.

    Nice Shop! If I had the extra funds and was much younger I would build ME a REAL SHOP I could drive the tractor into to keep or work on it. My Daughter did it right built it the way she needed hers and wanted it the first time. I built my first shop as big as I could afford to pay cash for. It ended up 20 x 28 and could have been twice that big to be real useful! Least I made the ceilings 9 ft high and a 16 ft wide 8 ft high roll up door with 2 walk in doors.
