Default The remodel is almost done

I haven't been able to post any projects for several months as the shop has been down for a remodel of sorts. I only added 6' onto the end but the difference is amazing. The attached provide a quick overview of the project.
The 1st photo shows the original shop, crowded but functional.
The next 2 the crowded mass it became prior to and during the construction.
The next 4 show the construction and yes Rick that brown stuff on the wall is insulation.
The last 2 show the interior as it begins to take shape. Hopefully I'll be back in action soon.

The one new update is a RIKON 10" band saw. Once I've time to finish setting it up and put it to use I'll write a review of the same.

When everything around you is going to pot, get out in the workshop.

Leave the poor (Cable) guy alone. He will do his insulation when he gets a round Tooit. ( They are as short of these in Canada as they are everywhere else.)


In other news ..... Nice workshop, Jon , additional space is always good.

Looks like it was a bit cold there in Oregon during construction. Nice job on the additional space
in a few years you will need more room or maybe sooner. You might think about getting a canister
air cartridge for your dust collector really will improve the air quality, at least it did for me.

Good Job Jon! Looks like you did it right. I've been threatening to add 16 feet to the end of my shop, but after it took so long to remodel the interior last summer, I'm not sure I want it bad enough. You made it look so easy that I may yet give it a try.

Just out of curiosity, why the 2 short floor joists in the foreground of the 4th photo?

ďWe should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.Ē - Mark Twain

Looks good. Wish I could add on.

When my time comes, I want to die like my grandfather did - quietly, and in his sleep - not kicking and screaming like the passengers in his car.

Definitely short of those here. Slightly more available here in the centre of the country but very hard to find out west, I'm told.
They've all been snapped up for winter conversion, padding added and used for ear muffs for the winter. -24C Saturday morning. Hard to take a deep breath outdoors.
