Blocks are laid, now to pour the lentils.
I've got the trusses ordered, but there is a two
week delivery time on them :(
Picture of the truss design, mine will have plates to attach
perlins every 2 feet.
You got a floor and some walls. Hopefully you will get a roof and some
doors on there before the next cycle of torrential rainfall arrives. It
will be nice to work inside when the weather is acting up outside.
Naw, nobody here but me, technically my son lives with me but it isn't
uncommon to only see him a few hours a week, he's young and busy.
We're at a good place in life, adult friends, not just father and son.
Understand completely. I always liked having a place that I could go
that was *my* place. When I had my own workshop, I'd frequently go
there, wouldn't do any woodworking and would find something else to do
that interested me. Occasional solace is good for the soul.

There was only one minor problem with that, cash flow.
Metal, couple of nearby shops will roll and cut to exact
lenght, makes for easy work.
Do people put tile roofs on shops in OR?
The only tile used in Al is on Mexican restaurants and
a few $4.5 million McMansions.
The first shop I built I used aluminum, rolled & cut to length. It
was light to handle and reflected the Texas sun well, but I'm sure it
costs more than steel. My current shop was already there when we
bought the house and it has asphalt shingles (black) and just soaks up
the heat from the sun.
I noticed your "Odd piece of pine" page. I have a couple boards of that stuff I
found at the local borg. I think this is called Ambrosia Pine and is caused by
"secretions" from some type of borer that actually fill up the hole as the bug
continues to eat through the tree.
I couldn't find a source on the web to verify what I think the name is, so
please let me know if someone supplies better info.
