Hey, I believe in permits & zoning! We just don't have em here, like a few other backwoods places,probably very few. It would really crimp my style to deal with being told where to bulid fences ,how high & so on! I keep a clean , neat place and keep the car doors, log/lumber piles, chickens, etc in their place & organized. My problem is I work too much & I'm getting old too! I was/am impressed with your project & yes, it did cost more than all my buildings, not counting the land. FWIW, "farms" in my county were bought(before me being here) for the standard $1 per acre or even less, with mine being much more.
Your cave has better construction features(which are something I know about) than my SIL's expensive house in FL! My only real criticism would be that it's way to "nice" for my sort of shop activities. Nice project!
p.s. from a retired teacher

Wow. $1.50/sqft for that polished floor? That's awesome. I have been looking around for quotes and they were all in the $3.75 to $4.25 range here in Denver. Heck, they want $1.75/sqft just to scuff the floor to prep it for my DIY epoxy work! So instead, I am going to etch it with acid as prep.

Amazing. Indescribably Jealous. Both of the building and the skills you must posses in order to make use of said building.

when I was young

When I was in college I was accepted into the peace corps. I was going to south America to work with building and figuring out irrigation systems.

I was always handy .. (my father started me off with projects). Some thing I'm hoping to pass down to my son. My wife's father fixed everything with a hammer and if that didn't work..he would find a bigger hammer. Not a solution to every fix.

Passing the knowledge along. I have always asked a lot of questions to learn from others. I just left the welder to make a barn door rail for me. The retail was $400 at the stores. This one is going to cost me $100 and I get to prime / paint or I could heat it up and dip it in oil .. and shine it up.

I haven't done much of the building .. but a MC is something you leave behind for you kids.

I have projects planned .. and I figure 2 per year. What am I going to do with all these rebuilt projects. Keep some, sell some .. look at them brag about them and ride them.

My wife worked at the local Job Corps center & we were friends with the guy that taught the Union cement trades course. As a side note, he also happens to be the brother of the last gov of OH. I had him help me pour/finish my concrete floor in my shop. Using a power trowel for final finish it is SMOOTH!

Tuesday

Second coat of stucco, painters prep and we are moving things in.
Will have better pics in the morning.

skim coat (smooth coating)

see the difference between the first and second.

painters prepped.. it was too dark to take pics after they cleared out this afternoon.

industrial shelving from Lowes (on sale) two wooden benches made of very heavy composite press board. The other steel table will show up this weekend.
Glass door being prep for the lower office.

I have some of these shelves from Lowes also. You may find that you have to reinforce the way the front and back cross-members are tied together. I have plywood on top instead of the wire that you have. What I have found is that under load the cross-members can twist a little and sag. For me the shelf that this was most apparent was loaded down with dirt bike tires and two sets of spare wheels. This wasn't overloading the shelf according to the spec but was still causing the cross-member to sag a little.

I found that these type of shelves were perfect for storing a bike under and still being able to use the space above for storage. I have a '48 FLH that I do not get around to riding very often and keep it parked under this type of shelving.

paint on..

The painters finished the interior ZEN colorstoday. They will be back in 10 days to seal and paint the stucco. Roofers were here this morning to add an addition 10 inches of flashing to the joining roof lines.

we painted the duct a mellow red.. to bring good fortune fire into your life.





The yellow in the walls (soft) to brings prosperity( gold) and warmness to your life


The green contrast equal the wood of nature.


The downstairs under the quest room is painted in the yellow.. and the green outer walls



The fence was taken down today. The grader will be here next week and we are moving boulders to form walls.
