Re: OT: Building in isolated location

All-- This is not much of an update; just that the garage decking is all up (and the RoofLiner laid, not shown here) and the entry door transom is up. I contracted for the metal roof on both the house and the garage . . . 26 gauge "hard metal"; I forgot its actual name. It began with a &qu...

Yep. Spring is on its way down the road and fall is coming quickly.

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

All-- It has been a while since the last update. Too long. Quite a bit has been done. The garage/shop has been framed and roof decking is up. The radiant heating and cooling tubing is in place and all exposed tubing has been insulated. The entryway (external) door is up, but its transom is yet to be...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

All--

These are just iPhone pictures, but this is the first garage/shop wall to be raised . . .

The other walls have been built and are laying on the slab. (They may be up by now. I'm not on-site.)

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

All--
it will be huge

I can't believe I wrote that. Forgive me. Harold should have had it deleted from the board for violating the rules, written or unwritten.

spro, I learned a long time ago that it is difficult to deter a determined criminal. Very difficult.

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

All-- I am FINALLY getting to the garage and SHOP! Here is the 50'w x 40'l slab. It will be a dual position, three bay garage with a 19'w x 28'l shop. There is also a laundry and half bath opening off the hallway leading from the entry doorway into the house, which is not visible in this picture (to...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

BadDog-- I know all about how jerky the skid steer can be! When I have to be extra careful on a lift, I throttle that baby WAY down; depending on the load, sometimes down to an idle. I think it will handle my machinery at an idle or barely above. My Komatsu tips at 4000lbs, so that is way good enoug...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

Harold and BadDog and Bill and All-- I plan to buy forks for my skid steer to unload the equipment at the house. I'll have to hire someone to load it in KC since I don't have equipment on this end. I suppose I will have to hire the rigger that originally moved my machinery to load it on my trailer. ...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

RSG-- My CURRENT plan is to strap them (lathe, mill, and two saws) down on my 22' H&H Speedloader EX and drag it very slowly over the logging road. I suppose it is no longer fair to characterize it as a logging road. We have improved the entire 1.5 mile length of it quite a bit. It is now possib...
