The one furthest from completion gets first work. ;)  Wouldn't want to get yours all done, then  you all not wanting to come over and help any more because you will finally have some free time to actually work on those cars we have all put on the back burner to finish our palaces. 

just kidding.  

The name by the way is Randy.   But call me whatever you want everyone else does,  and sometimes it's not always flattering. :)

Now Randy, do you really think we would do that to a partner in crime here? I would think the first to be helped along would be the one who has been struggling through it the longest. For me that would be spring of ‘14.  😜 Y’all? 

 

Anyhow, finished the lathing and insulation today!! D4F1C419-999F-4982-88B9-8FF9BE0C572A.jpeg

All I managed to get done was a little paint prep work on the doors today and spent a few hours cleaning up piles of scrap wood (from when they put the building up) that were full of nails (pulling all of them) so I don't have to trip over them any more.  It's not real progress,  but one of those jobs you need to get done.  Made a dandy wood pile for the summer campfires though.  They were calling for rain or I would have painted those doors as well.

Wow, I didn’t realize that it had been that long.  Mine started with site clearing in March 2016.

Mr. Earl,  You've been at it the longest,  you win.  I started site work / clearing trees August 2016, Dug the footings in August of 2017 after all the paperwork was in order and we finished the raw shell and roof December of 2017.  I'm at dead last in the race.  

That just means you all will have more time to help me catch up once yours are done. ;)

The plan is CO this year for the finished shell with siding and windows with just a gravel floor.  

Then if I'm really lucky Maybe get my floor poured before October.   That is probably pushing it though.

Good for you! I'll bet that made a world of difference in the radiant heat you were getting inside from the tin roof.

yes sir,indeed it did!!!!!! The only good part about installing installation in the hot summer is the fact that the more you install, the cooler it gets. Still got all the front office area ceiling and all the walls to go though. But gotta get the electrical wiring roughed in first and have been working on that

also installed a beam down the peak of the ceiling, made up of old chicken house posts, all scrubbed and sanitized.

You seem to get more done than me each day and I actually spent most of the day on it.  I'll post over on my thread.  Looking good.  I could feel that heat the other day really starting to come through my roof and that's 16 feet to the low end.  I imagine it's much toastier up in the air than down on the cool ground where I am.
