Insulation on the west facing metal door, which is the emergency vent for the coffee roaster.
Lights, stool, fridge, portable AC plumbed outside. Saving a spot for a small mill on the steel desk in the left or on the bench where the ano tub sits. I secure my space with piles of junk. When I get something that needs space, I throw something out. Underneath the electrical panel is a blank 220 drop box, waiting for a mill or a welder.
some things are stickier than others

I'm back from the beyond....
Been kinda hectic around here the last month....
Drove down to play SPEW and visit some family...
Was gone a weekend a half..
I did haul about a hundred loads of fill in the shop to bring it up to where I can now add about 6" of sand.. also filled in around shop perimeter....
I also took a week plus off to go to Slims Stiock Class Game and it was a awesome experience for me and my sons... (Evan and Brett)..
One overhead door is now installed...
Metal I have been waiting for came in the wrong color and have had to wait for the new metal... it came in yesterday along with one overhead door that was wrong also...
The chicken house is almost complete except for some metal siding and the new chickens are pretty cool girls....
Started the ground work for the wife's greenhouse since I've been back and almost have it leveled out... it's going to be a good size at 30' x72"...
I did somehow get a cold/flu bug along the way home from APE and it's still lingering...
Hope to get over it soon....
Tommorrow I hope to install the last of the siding on the shop walls and maybe finish the ground work on the green house...
The one thing that I received I never expected was a new shop sign from MAr...
The sign is awesome.. truly a work of art... it must have taken a month or more to do...
I was floored when MAr came up to me a presented it to me....
It is a amazing piece of work and I wish I could find a good picture of it to show you people ( someone took a picture of MAr and myself with it but I don't remember who it was)..
It is being sent to me and I will post it's awesomeness up when I receive it...
Thanks so much Rob... It means a lot to me.....

Have you asked your son what the recipe is for daddy cakes? I tried making some the other day, but they just weren't the same.

That's great , son is Griffin and I'm Chris and he liked the daddy cake but just ate a bunch of junk food on the ride up so was on the full side. So we will definitely be in for some of those next year. Thanks

Ill hit Evan up and post his recipe for those daddy cakes asap..
Today was windy so instead of finishing the last panels on the shop I moved fill from the lower slope and base and brought it up to create a base for the green house...
Moved dirt all day long and never got close to grade where I had her laid out...
We decided to move its location a bit closer to the horse fence ( where she wanted it) and it's much flatter and will save a week of moving dirt....
Tommorrow should finish the grade for the base and then the panels on the shop....
First picture shows the starting of the base... it's moving 20 feet closer to the fence tommorrow.. second picture shows where I am getting said dirt and also where i want to add some slope away from house...
