    Got two cabinets hung yesterday and today I got a haul of used tin to finish out the inside walls. Hope to maybe get started on the bathroom frame work maybe tomorrow. We shall see. Also scored a door frame and door for the shitter![​IMG][​IMG]

    Got some shop time this evening and knocked out some walls for the bathroom. Still have two more walls to build, I failed to buy enough 2x4x10s. I also bought the rest of my electrical outlets and the wiring, hope to get started on that next couple of days.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That looks like a big ole shitter for a shop! I'd be glad to have that as my master crapper!

    Yea it's a little bigger than I expected. But the placement shower drain and water lines I had to make it a 10x10. I'm also going to tie it into overhead storage that will run the length of the shop.

    Got a little more done the last two days. I ran wire for one of the outlets, talk about a pain with only a 8ft ladder. I had to stand on top of it to reach lol. Got a third wall up in the bathroom and mounted to the existing shop frame. One more to go and on to the ceiling. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Few more pictures, I've still have to buy several breakers and make runs for the water heater, bathroom power and the rest of the receptacles on the last wall. And finish wire the panel. Got a lot of work left but the list is getting shorter.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Not bad for 36 bucks. Two led strips in a 4ft light, I think it will do the trick but cant really tell till i close it all in. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Are you going to spread all that rock yourself?
    Sure hope there is a tractor with a bucket somewhere close.

    Wheelbarrow today just enough to get me a little walk way past the mud. Borrowing a skid steer this weekend is the plan.

    This stuff has some bigger rock mixed in but was half the price of crush. 40 ton was 600 bucks delivered, my cousin did the hauling and he said a single load of abc was around 25 a ton

    Finished raking down the high spots and got four downspout extenders put on to get some water away for it a little till I get the dry wells in. Also got the back cut down and the sides tapered so maybe now it will run away from the shop. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Those trees around your house are ridiculously awesome. Mix of poplar and white oak?

    Yea man more poplar than anything but there is some old ones around here. Only down side I've had several hit by lightning and paid big money to have them taken down, just due to how close they were to the house.

    I have finally started putting up some metal. I got the walls of the bathroom done and a door hung. Hope to get the overhang done tomorrow so I can mount the light and get some cabinets to their home against the wall so I can get started on some tops for work bench space.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
