No beer when sawing here either, Chet. When I pop a top, everything else stops. I just think that shed is too nice to not have a spot where you can enjoy a cold one and just look admiringly at what you've done. Real satisfying! :)

Good job, Chet.  That's one more iron out of the fire :)

I am closing in on finishing the greenhouse, then it's on to more firewood and back to finishing my saw barn.  

Somehow I figgered you would get yours done first  :D

Great Shed Chet.

I knew all those jokes couldn't be true :) :)

When does the floor go down?

Nice shed Chet, I've just added on to my mill shed, I poured a slab,layed a course of blocks around outside wall and built on that, the reason being so I could use my own lumber for posts, Tell me more about getting your lumber treated ;D

I take my wood to a treatment facility about an hour from me. Usually a couple thousand feet at a time. Getting it there isn't bad, but bringing it home after treatment it's real heavy. Treating posts to .60 costs me $140 mbf.

chet, I hauld about 3200 last time. All I could see was a wall of lumber I never got my cummins into 5th gear didnt want to go over 50 max. I think I was a bit overloaded but once I got it loaded I had to try it. Now This guy lets me leave my treated lumber dry down as long as I want. I still made 2 trips bringing it home.
