Default Finally making some progress ...

I thought I'd post a photo progression of putting my new shop together.

It feels so good to put my framing skills to work again.

What I'm most proud of is that so far I have done this without needing any plans:

Oh, sure, you just seemed insistent on continually one upping Fred and his fine entertainment center.

Permits? PERMITS?!? We don't need no stinkin' permits! This was a Harbor Freight "Shop-on-a-pallet" kit!



Looks like you hit the "Ooops!" paint bin, too.

Amazing. Although, once you get out of municipalities that enforce building codes, and you're in the "rural" areas, that would be perfectly acceptable by some agricultural standards.
Just don't ask me to stand inside it.

Or beside it. Especially downwind of it.

I'd seen this posted before on FB. Pretty astounding. Definitely Sh!t Bunny award-winning material. I wonder if Fred's father-in-law built it?

But mostly I was bummed, because I thought I'd see some actual progress on your shop, John! Soon?

Twice, I scrolled back up to the top to check the date thinking this must be an April Fools joke.

I'm surprised the guy finished it. He must have shot at least one nail through his foot or something...


Great job on the NK composites! Did you do that?
