Just returned home from my hometown. Beside checking the construction progress, I selected and bought the roof tiles for 1,350 pieces @ MY3.40/piece (USD 0.91/piece).

Here are some pictures that tell the progress :

You must be really anxious to get into your new shop. It looks beautiful! Can’t wait to see the inside- filled with tools!

Lew : You are right. I’m anxious to get into my new shop more than getting new car or home! In my skull, I have too many things to do once it is handed over to me.

Todd : I hope in a month’s time I will be able to start making tool cabinet, till and racks TS outfit, and many more …

Thanks BW, Scott, Socalwood and everyone for viewing and for your kind words.
Today I’m a bit tired…went to my hometown in the morning and rushed back home (where I’m staying now) in the evening. But I still have time fo LJS….LOL

Seeing this building reminds me of how much of the world builds buildings with much better materials than we in the U.S. build with. Bricks and Concrete, THE way to go. My Pops is a civil engineer in Central America and he scoffs when he visits the U.S. and sees how badly built “stick” houses are here. While he has to worry about earthquakes, he’s never had a concrete home burn to the ground…

Looking good, I know you will be glad to “Have it in the dry” as we say in the states when the roof goes on. Your project seems to be moving along nicely, I would have a hard time being away from the site for several days at a time, but I guess it does give you a sense of it coming together if you don’t see each tiny change. I also noticed how square everything seems. Best wishes.
