It’s been a while since my last update here, but work hasn’t stopped that much. I did get employed, which sucks, but you know, cash flow and all that.
Anyway, I was kinda stalled out so I called in a “final” inspection on my two permits on the shop, got sign-off on the electrical, and 3 things left on the main permit: They wanted to see the eaves painted, a landing for the door, and the soil on the roof. I need all those things done anyway, but getting a good clean list got me organized.
A friend with whom I trade favors brought his kids over and they primed the eaves and built a landing out of some scrap treated lumber he’d replaced in a job for a marina, while I got busy building a way to get the soil to the roof of the workshop. Yesterday evening I tested the lift:
And I got distracted before work this morning and shoveled the first load, a half-yard of gravel to provide a filter on the edges, to the roof:
Next up, 4 yards of topsoil that arrive in my driveway tomorrow morning.
