    Getting a few more things done while I have a helper
    yesterday we got half of the drop roof installed between the shop and the Machine shop van then this morning we completed that section
    I had another 8ft by 25 ft gate that was just begging to be used on the shop
    This also used up all but 2 ft of the remaining standing seam panel I had by welding short sections together to make a gutter

    then after that we moved back to the North side of the building and worked on the stairway enclosure

    Got the end cap on the west wall finished except for the flashing
    Took the first step towards building my shop-20200929_130053ww.jpg
    Since the west wall will be a 48 ft wide roll up curtain door there is not a lot left to do to it maybe 20 ft and the remainder of the stairway

    Well I guess this means the shop must be done now.
    I needed to make a run to town today so by the time I got back I really didn't want to climb scaffolding, deciding to give my knees a day off Eddy and I hung the front door then we chained it closed and bolted the chain from the inside so now no one can enter the shop without climbing up and going through a window on the bus

    Admiring the deceptive murals surrounding said door; I'm sure it will vex trespassers and miscreants...

    Absolutely.
    No one who lives near me or even in the neighboring counties would ever dream of entering a place with a chained door especially one chained from the inside even with open windows or in this case missing walls

    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.
