And This Is Happening This Week. Badly Needed Storage Solution.


Darcey was telling me how many sq ft his new place is. Oh hell no, can't have that much more under roof than us.

New 30x60 for lumber, sheet goods, tractor, mowers ect. Gonna free up a bunch of floor space in our shop. Connecting our 2 buildings with concrete so we can cart or forklift materials from one building to the other.

Congrats. but just curious... any reason you didn't add on to the existing building to remove steps/costs from the process?

Randy....

You are my freaking hero. My kids tell me, "when I grow up I wanna be like a Pinwheel"

Good stuff man. Glad to see it's all coming together. Good for people to see if you bust your ass for decades you can make things happen. Now, at least you have more room to see all your benches are filled up instead of having to move a couple out of the way to find out one is filled up.

Or you could build a couple more benches to rest more **** on. Damn horizontal disease...

You should really make Jenny your hero instead of me, she's the driving force for our success.

Trust me on the klutter, I'm the king of clutter, I'll have this new building mucked up in no time.

Treated 6x6's bored in the ground 5'. Treated keyed/grooved 2x8's fastened to them to hold in the 100+ ton of rock to bring it to level for concrete. Gotta dry up some before I can get the rock placed & get concrete trucks to the building.

Nice.

I was wondering what the method of leveling that was.

And this is happening today. One step closer.


Was able to score a bunch of pallet racking at an online auction last week. Just in time to outfit the new barn with lumber storage.
