I find "cling wrap" is a great clear bib and it sticks to your shirt nicely.
I keep a box in the cars.

Had my final inspection Thursday. Didn't pass. Need a vacuum breaker on the hose bib, water hammer arrestors on the washing machine hookup and ice maker hookup. Need support for the sill on the door off the back of the building. Final grade needs done.

I do however have the ok to officially unofficially move the rest of the shop stuff in. Started with the pallet racking.

Also have had help with the final grading.

I feel the same. I didn't have any drainage issues before. But need to keep the inspector happy.

In the not to distant future I want to run a strip of gravel about 12-16" out from the edge of the slab down each side of the building.

I'd like to find more shelving like this. It goes together like pallet racking. The shelf supports have pins that lock into the uprights. Each shelf is about 34x18. Pretty sturdy. Not sure what this shelving is called.

I got a bunch of that shelving type from a previous job at a grocery store. It had particle board for shelves. I just took down 3 sections that I had in my shop to make room for the shaper and K&T 4H mill. Not sure if any will ge going back up in the shop, or future lean too building.

It is nice stuff, although if you have a lot of weight on the particle board Shelves, and high humidity, it will start warping.

Got the shelving assembled. Trying to decide if I want it to stay where I set it up or move it across the wall and put it in the gap between the pallet racking and the wall. Also I close up of how.the cross pieces lock into the uprights. I have four extra shelves that could be added if need be. Not looking the best but held up being out in the weather since 2018.

You are getting there.

I have very little wood on any of my shelving. And very little with thin metal. Most is thicker, at least 16ga. I think you need a backing or at least a cross brace on those shelves to keep them square. I don't like the click-together as it can come loose. I have all mine tacked together solid.

Those pallet racks without any planks or webbing make me nervous!
