I guess the one of the things you did right was go big from the get go. When my dad and I built our 30’x40’ shop, it was a lot bigger than the school bus’s we were using, but remembered back to the time, we poured the floor first, then built the building. As soon as we could walk on the floor, we started filling it up. Was a pain to have to keep moving tools just to finish the building, which to this day 26 years later, still does not have outside siding on it. Just the foil back 1” styrofoam insulation.

I can give some insight into Daikin mini splits. In one word. Unreal. They run on a 20 amp breaker. Output air at 19 F outside temp this morning was 101F. That is with NO strip heat. It feels like gas heat. Warranty is ten years on the system. You can barely hear the outdoor unit running
. Google Daikin plant in Texas. Second largest building in N America. I love my unit.

Thanks. I think I'm not doing too bad.


Things I've learned so far ..

Nothing costs what you think it will.
I've got a better idea on how long certain tasks should take.
I've never managed people before but I'm more confident in doing it now.

It's raining today but I'm going to start framing inside.

The lense is cracked and falling apart. Too cheap to get a new phone.

Got some wall framing done today.

Got a framing question.

A few of my walls fall in between my joists. At the top of the wall in this situation do people run say a 2x6 at the top of a 2x4 wall to give a place to screw the drywall on the ceiling to at the wall?

Borrowed my friends 30 foot 21,000 lb triaxle gooseneck trailer. Took the spreader bar back to my job. Loaded up the Gorton mill and brought it to the shop.

Forklift was also delivered today.

Have I mentioned we get a lot of rain lately??
