LoLoLoL!  Very true!

 

To be honest, I have no clue how I remembered a one time bit character appearance on Futurama years ago when by the end of a 5 minute conversation with one of my new shop neighbors I had already forgotten his name (it's Sergio - I wrote it down LoL)

I was able to get into the shop around noon today and got some work done between my day job meetings.

 

Here's a short video with the first section of wall being mocked up:

 

 

Here's a shot working off the tailgate of the truck.  I don't know why, but there is something truly satisfying about working off the bed of the truck.  It's therapeutic for me to do truck stuff with the truck in general.  I definitely had that oddly satisfying high from using the truck for it's intended use all weekend long:

I secured the 2x4 stud walls to the metal building by drilling a counter-sink with an over-sized forstner bit, then punch a hole through the rest of the 2x4 with a bit just larger than the screws and then finally into the metal building with 3" self tappers:

I'm securing the stud walls to the floor using a RamSet nailer.  Basically it uses .22 blanks to drive a heavy nail through the 2x4 into the concrete:

I put two sections up against the back wall and the first free-standing wall in and then it was time for some cancer research and a refuel:

I was using that unfinished sub enclosure as a step ladder to get the stud walls secured to the building since I had managed to leave my ladder at the old space.

 

After some caffeine and nicotine I got the 2nd free standing wall for the dust collector room up:

The 2x10 is just laying up there.  I plan on hanging them, finishing out the AC air handler closet and maybe hanging a little drywall tomorrow.

 

Here is a quick walkthrough video when I knocked off for the day.  The audio is kind of $hit due to the fans and the air compressor, but its what I got LoL:

 

 

After a shower, dinner and a bit of a rest, I went and grabbed the ladder and a few other odds and ends from the old shop and brought them to the new one and pulled the trailer back home so I have a bit more room to move around.  I think I need a few more fans.  It was 90 in the shop most of this afternoon.  That wouldn't be too bad, but it was ridiculously humid today and I was pouring sweat the entire time I was up there.

 

I can't wait to get the A/C in - that is going to be so nice!

 

Hopefully more updates tomorrow 😅

 

And thanks for the positive comments, looking forward to updating the build logs in the evenings makes the whole thing more fun!

Yea, they are a complete PITA.  The pink dye rubs off on any and everything that touches them and the skid of lumber is utterly garbage.  I don't think I've ever seen so much in the way of twists and warpage.  Luckily things don't have to be too on the money for the shop build.

 

They were the cheapest 2x4x8 Lowes had in stock.  They were ~.60c cheaper than the white pine, but over 220 2x4s those pennies add up LoL.

I can't wait to have some land and build my own shop for sure!  I have no clue where, though I'm pretty sure I don't really want to stay here where I am now.  Problem is - I keep doing things (like this shop) that tie me down here.  My lease agreement is for 3 years, maybe by then I'll have built it up enough to quit my day job and start shopping for a few acres somewhere I can plan on staying for the long haul.

Maybe, but I've got a feeling your doors are going to look WAY better - and I know for a fact that they're going to sound better!
