Project Update

Hi Folks,  

I mentioned before that the main task now is to finish insulating and covering the walls, which it is still before I start serious work on the plane.  Thankfully it looks like we’ve finally got a break in the weather, so I can get some workshop work in.

As I mentioned previously, the insulation is now quite important —cost-wise— since it has started getting hot enough that to work inside the shop comfortably requires using AC.  Again, I have been using the AC both to cool the shop and dehumidify it as well. Currently this is not the most cost effective since I have two sections of wall that are not insulated.  

I plan on working a good bit on the shop upcoming week, and to at least finish up the 9th wall section out of 10…  I also am looking to get the milling machine off the shop floor and installed as well.

I know it’s June (crazy) and all I can say is I’m continuing to work every day to get this shop operational… and I believe it’s pretty darn close.
