Very nice shop in the making. I just love a fresh concrete floor. Is like anything is possible. I may get to see your shop one of these days when we drift on down to Wheatland.

C'mon down any time just let us know when so we can be there. It's a bit of commute for us too for a while..

Yeah we did not have time to make process pics on the roof.

One more outside project will be to make a small shed on the side somewhere that will house the compressor and the blast cabinet. I have a 60 gal. stand up compressor and a HF cabinet. I don't want the noise and the dust inside. Learning from the garage setup, (It's a bitch) I want to separate processes in space. So the far side near the overhead door will be the grinding welding area. The machines go to the middle-front closer to the entry door. Even the welding processes will be sort of separate. Stick and mig goes close to the overhead so if season allows I can open the door and go at it. Tig can be closer to the machines as it's a sort of clean operation.

It will be a while to get this thing done and operational as we do a 1000 mile commute and do a week here a week there on the project but it's certainly fun to finally get a good working environment.

I must have missed the thank you. It was a pleasure to be of assistance.

A bit of update.. A few pics of the last trip out West and the results. The shop basically done except the electrical. Just have one outlet for now, I have to figure out where goes what as the gear arrives. I love the morning light coming in. All and all it was a good trip. #1 North side, #2 South side and #3 the first arrivals. My baby lathe and one tool box.

It is now occupied territory.

A bit of update.. Slowly things are making their appearance in the new shop. I've done a lot of electrical, making the lights and a center feed happening on the ceiling. The heights is 8 foot so me being 6'2" (In the morning) can reach anywhere. The plan is that the entry way is the cleanest and as you go in things get dirty. The back gonna have the welding and grinder area. So far I did not move any of the heavy gear. Anyway things started to get functional. BTW. huge thanks for Windy, giving me the light fixtures. They working great after gutting them for LED bulbs. Also the same for Milo for the roofing metal for the back wall grinding area. Huge bench with the grinders coming soon on the back.
