Well we are back at it.
Course of blocks laid.
Some of the material arrived.
Three of the walls are up'
Reason for the large openings are for windows.

Put your window headers at the top of the wall. If you decide to replace a window for a door later, it's a lot less hassle. Especially if you run the wires just below the header instead of under the window. Works for house construction, too.

Another question, maybe I know the answer to, but I'll ask to be sure.

You don't have a mud-sill (pressure treated bottom plate) on your walls. Is this not needed due to the use of the block course?

Presently it will have 7 windows, 2 walk in doors and a 9 ft overhead door, I don't believe I will need more.

Sill plates are pressure treated with a sill seal between sill plate and blocks.

I am thinking about building a gargage/workshop too. Thinking about a 28' x 32' with a cellar something like a half basement in the back half of the gargage maybe 12 x 28. Would be some good storage space/storm shelter. :fing32:

:MTF_wel2:, ONE FINE DEERE!!

The storm shelter is a good idea. Just remember that gasoline fumes are heavier than air and will settle in the basement unless a barrier is erected around the entrance.

My wife and I are now putting ours up. The fellow was helping was getting to be a pain, claimed the trusses I received wouln't work and that we needed at least 5 people to put them up. I was paying him $15.00 @ hour and told him that for the type of work he was doing I couldn't see how he could justify that kind of money. Told me he couldn't work for any less so now he isn't getting anything from me.

But between the wife and me we will get it done.
