Preparing the workshop for new roof

Finally after 3 years of dealing with moving buckets and planning my schedule around the weather forecasts, I'll be able to have a new roof installed on both of my old buildings.

They started today on the Lyric Theater building which I use main for storage at the moment. It was interesting to see what they uncovered when they pealed back the old roof, which has been in place since 1980. We discovered two old Coke a Cola can's from 1980 with the LA Olympics logo and a real pull tab.

Going back with R panel galvalum roofing, will be installing 4" purlins over the old roof deck to avoid replacing all the rotten decking. The purlins will be lagged into the rafters. Opting to install the steel purlins so that the screws won't tend to back out with the expansion and contraction and will give me more insulation space also.

I'll be posting photos as I progress.

I'll also prepping the workshop for the project also. Getting plastic ready to cover the machinery and wood rack just in case of an unexpected rain event.

I'm also thinking about running some PEX tubing as they put down the R panels and using it as a solar heater for the shop and water, still doing some research on that aspect.

Feels so good when things get done that you've been waiting for. Can't wait to see some pictures.

Wood Shelf Shelving Retail Flooring

This is the steel desks I build some walls around, each section serves a different purpose, Far left is the sanding storage area. Middle section is nuts, bolts, and hand tools, and the far right section is tool storage.

This is looking south, showing the table saw and band saw. The stairwell is to the left in this photo.

Window Wood Interior design Floor Tool

This is the north side windows. This area I use the miter saw, drill press, mortiser, and the jointer. Still need to add more shelves to this end of the shop.

Here's some views of the new upstairs shop location. Still getting things back in place and trying to figure out the most effective way to get things up and down the stairs. The Tyvek on the windows was installed this winter to keep the 40 mph 27 degree winds at bay, so far its working very well.
