Project Update

Hi Folks,  

So, I’m still working on this darn shop.  Getting much closer to kicking off getting back onto the airplane build, but still have at least a week more of shop reno to complete.

But as I mention in my latest blog post: the shop is structurally sound, but not square at all.  This makes for a timely install of both the foam insulation and the wall board over it.  It also makes every section of wall completed a huge triumph!

I had planned on setting a hard cutoff date to swap from the workshop as a priority to the airplane build being the priority, and working on the shop when I could get to it . . .

 . . . then the weather turned much chillier.

This of course means I have to get all the insulation installed to be able to keep the shop at a high enough temp to do layups.

I sincerely plan that the next time I provide a build update here that I will be telling you that the build is back on!
