    An interesting swath of area to say the least. Very well maintained machines and then the stereotypical 3 different colored shot to heck Vovlo with a container blasting by.

    I was out on Long Island a while back. I will say, those boys don't play. Everything I saw was a meticulously kept 389.

    Installing electrical, filled the water tank ( it actually holds water and there was a pump in it), moved the new security door from home to the shop, picked up the new 12x14 roll up door. 423437E0-F2E0-4F6F-823B-69F30FFC5B77.jpeg D7C778B1-8181-403A-BFFE-2E11A28CBDB8.jpeg A3FD3DDA-8ADD-4BAA-B966-7EC37C3FB976.jpeg $2 for 800 gallons DC60CF88-1BCC-4594-92AF-AB4243F25395.jpeg 05DD9310-AFB0-4EFC-A8EA-5CAD1DC81D5C.jpeg

    Turns out theres natural gas out on the street?
    Put in the order for a new meter today. They said they’d have it in before the first snow fall. 08A97211-9FCC-4FD6-829C-D0EE4898B35B.jpeg 47889194-0D8E-4021-8223-76F24C37E25F.jpeg Installed a LED flood light and got most of the junk removed. Another load of rock spread out too.

    Too bad the previous owners didn’t finish the spray foam. Bare metal roofs make anything less than a torpedo heater pretty much useless in the winter.

    Well that was there business. They just finished off drums and did training in here. They gave me a price to finish it and I’m probably going to take them up on it but only if I can afford it outright.

    I have other pressing issues that require my cash to be liquid over the next 3 or 4 months.

    But hopefully before the snow flies?

    The new roll up door is not insulated. It has to be a coil up door to give me the headroom I need. Everyone said the “insulation package” was utterly useless to get. I did get the weatherstripping though.

    Insulation is expensive no matter what type, and I’d probably have a hard time swallowing the bill to do that shop! My old garage had a open metal roof and a coal furnace. Even with the heat that coal put out, it pretty much ran full blast if you needed it warm enough to paint. I was a poor kid then, but put a layer of plastic on the rafters and it made a huge difference. But even if it’s a little cold, it beats laying under the truck in the snow!
