There IS a 12 step program, and MANY have admitted they have G.A.S. however, I don't know that anyone has gone to a single meeting........ :D

I heard a rumor that the coffee is terrible and the cookies are harder than bricks. Of course you could stash the cookies and build a shop I suppose. Hmmmm.

Same here. In my childhood, if I wanted nails for some project, I could use anything from the cans of used nails. New hardware was available only if bought with my own cash.

One of the Gravely projects I remember was making a trailer to hitch behind the Gravely L for firewood, rocks, dirt, etc. Two old pickup tires, some scavenged pipe, steel jacket pieces off of an old furnace, lots of pop rivets and a few bandaids later we had a functional trailer complete with operator's seat. Wasn't pretty, but sure got used.
Very nice!! There's more satisfaction in using something made than buying something new, IMO!!

I can't think of a better use for recycled wood, John. It looks like you're off to a good start too. I should do something similar, as I need more space too.

Platform is done, floor is screwed down, and I've got 4 walls up as of tonight. Tomorrow I want to get the roof and siding done.

Well you could say I'm taking my time, but doing it right.

The end roof joists and ridge pole are up and it's all going pretty well. There's a full 8' ceiling for good reason. Do you think we will see double decker 408's in there? Umhmm!

I wish! But that would require another shed, and I know I couldn't sell that idea to the Mrs. I'm thinking old school pulleys & ramps, perhaps a pivoting table. We'll see what ideas get into my head after the building exterior is done.

For those of you who still follow this thread, the thread is corrupted for some of us.

It would be nice to start a new one, but, for those who want to continue,,, enjoy

I am now signing off from the thread,,, and hope SOMEBODY starts a new one.

Obviously 4K posts is too much for the MTF software.

Bye,,,,
