« Part 7: And the walls, go tumblin' up! Part 8 of A Shop for Dan series Part 9: I have the power! »

It’s been 28 days since I last updated here. It feels like the home stretch, but I know it’s not yet. However, I did get enough materials out of the driveway today that we should be able to park there tomorrow!

Since the last update, we have:

Three inspections left: Drywall, electrical (which I hope to combine, depending on when I can get to digging the electrical service trench), and final.

You’re going to have a very nice shop when completed. Thanks for showing the progress – I like your journal.

Not being from California, I was amazed at the codes. Good luck.

Most of the codes are actually national.

We do have more earthquake and fire risk than elsewhere, though, and I’m inside city limits which increases the amount of oversight. And the living roof on this structure is heavy.

Another update coming soon, I’m in the midst of twisting on pigtails to install the electrical receptacles.
