lights & ceiling fans got up to date, electricity was hooked up yesterday. Think of the super bright lights at some gas stations you've seen and that's what I was shooting for.

12 400 watt lights 15' apart & 3 56" fans.

It was figured at roughly cubic 25000 sq foot to the top of the walls or 33000ish to the top of the ceiling for the size of the heater which is now scheduled to get put in Tuesday.

Mean while my poor bus is still sitting outside

Well the front is up except waiting for the black window shutters (I'll have to try the first picture later this afternoon where there is not as much sunlight).





Heater is up as well waiting for an inspection so sheet rock can get finished, it should prove big enough to do it's job even in the coldest of winters here





Chimney surround is being made to match the one on the house

!4' high X 20' wide I downsized it from 14X25 in favor of the window/shutter combination.

The white stuff on the ground just goes to show how unique of a winter we've had so far this year even more so than last year. Here it is almost the middle of February and were far short of normal snow fall let alone having a snow base to talk about.

The last I heard we were in the mid 40's a little while ago today and in the 30's the past few days.

Updated front view with better (less) lighting while taking picture
Viewed in the dark, lights have motion sensors with photocells

John,

It has been great, to follow along with you while this was being built.

Where are you at, in the process, now?

They miscalculated the amount of siding they ordered so only three exterior walls are sided. The rest is supposed to be in next week.

A temporary gas feed line has been run to it so I've got heat in it drying everything up so they can start mudding the drywall next and get it prepped for painting.

I just finished making the 4X4 exhaust fan vent and that should go in next week as well.

The push for heat was to be able to pour the concrete floor but it's getting so close to spring I think I'd rather wait and be sure it's done right against just saving a few weeks time.

I almost forgot they ordered the garage door motor for a right mount and the mechanical chain hoist as a back up system for the left side so that all has to come back out again which is why the air compressor is not mounted on it's little perch up front and hooked into the building yet.

Thank you for asking.
