Shop is coming along
« on: October 24, 2018, 10:11:44 AM »
Ten days ago I started framing the shop, it actually went pretty fast. It was a big help and time saver that I was able to frame and sheet the walls on the ground and have a self loader log truck come in and stand them up. Yesterday some guys from church came over to help set the trusses and that was huge. First the truck was late, then he could only make it about half way in my driveway pulling the trailer with the trusses. So, we ended up swinging the trusses off his trailer into my dump truck to get them to the work site. Then he brought the truck/crane in an flew the trusses up one at a time while we set them. Iíve been worried that I wasnít going to get the roof on before the snow comes and also that I wouldnít be able to get the roof on so I could leave to go elk hunting next weekend, but with the help Iíve received and the times Iíve needed it most, itís starting to look like I might get to go....

Lol, the only flat places on my place are man made and there isnít enough yet. This spring Iíll rent a backhoe or a cat and get serious about making a place to set up my mill and have logs delivered.

Reminds me of my old place. 330 acres, with maybe 10 that you could cut hay on, and that wasn't flat, just level enough that you could make hay.  :D

Anyone building a shop would be wise to insulate it well, not only for heat but to prevent condensation and rust on machinery with changing temperatures. Frank C.

Yeah, it will probably end up insulated eventually, but for now my Iíll just be happy to get the roof finished this week.

Yesterday I got some steel on the roof, but I couldnít quite beat the rain. Itís raining pretty good this morning and I donít think I can get any more done today safely.

Thank you, it rained most of the day today, so I hauled some rock and then went hunting this evening.

Looks like you could use a set of scaffolding.

Looking good. 
Its nice to have people that can come help. I just dried my ďshopĒ in last weekend. I took 2 20í containers and set them 16í apart, hung 2 34í x 6Ē i-beams and welded in the perlins. I finally got the R-panels on just before the weather hit. Wasnt expecting high winds, but glad they came. I forgot to screw down some of the roofing, so in 20 mph wind and heavy rain, i figured screwing them down was better than letting the wind tear up my many days of labor. 
I was going to post my own thread, along with my mill build. But my wife decided to wash my phone last night and i hadnt backed it up in a bit over 2 wks. Lost a good bit of the building stage of my shop.

Looking good Crossroads!  In Texas we usually only frame roofs for houses like that, but with your snow load I'm sure that your local building practices are quite different than ours.

When you can, it would be nice to see some pictures of your project, it sounds interesting. 
I have some temporary scaffolding made and set up on one side, but right now, itís not really helpful. Once I start siding, itís probably going to get a lot more use though. 
The project kinda stalled last week, after going over a month without taking a day off, I decided to take advantage of that last Oregon resident elk I had in my pocket and go hunting. I threw a folding bed, a 2 burner propane cook stove and a small wood stove in my enclosed utility trailer. Then after a 7 hour drive I cut a hole in the roof and set up the wood stove 👍🏻. I only got to hunt 3 days and it was tough hunting (utvís have invaded a big roadless area) and I didnít see an elk, but enjoyed some time alone and some time with my hunting partner. Now it time to get back to work.

Itíll be either 1 more, or if possible, 2 more wks before iíll be back hm. But i WILL get yaw pics.

Things warmed up a bit this afternoon and I decided to take advantage of it. Got my harness rigged, screw gun and screws and the trim for the gable end. That piece went so well, I left my screw gun on top and went to get more trim. About the time I got safely to the ground, it started snowing. So, I thought ďwell, if I have to go get the gun, I might as well put one more section of trim onĒ   I got up the ladder and pushed the trim up on the roof ahead of me. By this time thereís already a 1/2Ē of snow on the roof. So, I left the trim and went in a rescue mission for the screw gun. Straight to the top, shimmy the full length of the shop, grab the gun, carefully turn around and head back to my bail off rope. Thatís when my dear wife comes out and hollers up at me ďdo you want me to bring you a coatĒ? I told her thank you, but the only thing I need is to get down without dying. Sure glad I took all those high angle rescue classes over the last 20 years. This self rescue went off without a hitch 👍🏻

Looking good, I was up in Sandpoint this evening, then back to Spokane.  Looks like the entire area got about 2, or so inches of snow fall. 

Getting it done before the mess is such a good feeling! lol
