« Part 3: hesitant progress Part 4 of shop re start the new RMR series Part 5: shop building series »

Hello again it’s been slow going in the shop still been darn cold out plus had some water control to get under control. This was the result of poor workmanship of the pole barn that is my shop atm. The perimeter of the buildings ground work was above the bottom of the cur-agate siding, with nothing sealing the outside moisture out. I dug down about 4 inches below the siding, pulled the lower row of screws out and layed 6 mil plastic down tucking it under the siding then replaced the screws. from the inside i then filled each opening in the siding with expanding foam sealant and wala its dry inside now.. I have been also scavenging some materials to close up the open 2 bays of the shop. the far side is framed and has some used osb sheathing on it the middle bay will be closed up with a set of barn style doors. have been able to work in shop a little bit. still figuring out the best lay out for work ability.

the break down of the bandsaw has begun. need to locate backup bearings
