Well I haven’t posted any pics for a while. Been working part time and mostly alone to do the eaves on the workshop. As any one knowes working alone on scaffolding on eaves means a whole lot of up and down.

Well glad to say eaves are finished and I do have steel sheeting on the roof, all except for two pieces (short) don’t ask.

I have to do a second coat of stain on the eaves and then finally the scaffolding can be taken down and sawed up for firewood.

I one pic you will see a white 1000 gal storage tank for gas. I have to change out this tank and replace it with a new tank. This would be simple but the Regie is making me use a different tank. The tank I have to install is a steel encased in concrete. It weighs 9 tons empty. Major work to move this into place with no cranes or trucks.

Some Pics

Wow..! wow…!this is really unbelievable. A workshop with panaromic view. So cool.
If it is just miles away from my home, perhaps I would be here all day long either watching you doing your work or just fishing. I just cannot express it with words…

Take care and work safe

I see what you mean cutting the scaffolding into firewood. What a beautiful day you had there. With five thousand lumberjocks, all of us could lift the tank for you, good luck and take pictures of the move.

Thanks Ron

What an incredible view yourshop has. That tank sounds like a difficult move. I think all the Lumber jocks are required to move it. Let me know when to show up.
