That's a big buzzworm! Is that a Western Diamondback or a Mojave? I hear scary things about the Mojaves.

Beautiful project. I've been following along absolutely drooling every step of the way!

Sunday before moving in

The garage is well enough along to start moving things in Monday morning.
Roof will go on after painting the stucco. The stucco guy said to hold off as long you can before paint to harden the stucco. No rain in the forcast for the next 10 days.


Kitchen cabinets , shelving, rubber flooring .. and moving in two lifts.

Started April 26 .. it was petty quick.






Sunset view




side yard

Monday move in

We cleared out the storage this morning and moved in one of the lifts and a project. The stainless steel table and sink and cabinets re-installed.

Moving this 8ft table was a bear .. plus it was pretty heavy



Stainless wash sink and small wet table


K75 project









kitchen cabinets from our remodel


Moving air is not a problem...



8 ft stainless table.. my new welding table. I will add a block of wood underneath for a vice



Movable storage rack


The 4 seater from my sprinter van. Perfect for sitting.. while not in use

The workers I hired all have papers :

One Native American RECON Ranger
One African American Viet Nam Warrior

Both served in the military...

I try to hire former military if I can.

Yeah, I "run into it" occasionally at work, thus I have developed this attitude:



Best way to remove it? A plastic comb. Slide the spines between the teeth of the comb and pull it out. Works great, doesn't get it stuck in your hands..

I just finished reading every page so far and this is an awesome build up. Thank you for showing us the progress. I hope that my shop comes out as nice as yours when the time comes.

Thur

Started moving items into the shelving. Never knew I had sooooo much.
Working on the K75 while waiting for parts.. found the boom box until the stero system is hooked up. Can't wait to get the wash sink hooked up.
