A chainsaw and large round firewood blocks, on end, also work in a pinch. Just watch that you are on flat surfaces, and the bigger the better.

Don't worry. You will get used to the goofy looks after you have used it for a year or so and will forget about it. Then again, if the tax man comes around, you can argue that it looks goofy so it isn't worth raising the taxes! :-)

Once you get it done, then the fun begin on arranging all the tools in that new space

If you have them tall enough then people can't look in to see your stuff. It's a security feature. And you still get the light benefit from it.

No doubt, She is just about at her final elevation. The bottom of the window is well over 6 feet!

Last course of block is in. This weekend will be anchoring it down and sliding the back section to its new location.

Nice job.. I like the windows are so high and you added the block up that high..

I am always worried about fire so having a cement block wall 4ft tall works for me.. No risk of fire then..

I chose a steel building vs wood for that very reason.. I will also have a 2 to 3ft knee wall to get the building away from the soil and give me a little more height..

Looks great.. Can't wait to see it finished and filled back up???

That makes two of us. Not that I have a lot of shop time right now, but some shit needs to get done. I will be making a visit to my friends shop to put plow irons on my pickup (because I back burnered the diesel swap to get the shop done) He has radiant heat so I really wont mind laying on the floor
