It's got 4" of fiberglass insulation throughout. You can see it on the inside of the roof in the last pics. The walls have interior metal sheeting covering it up, but if you go back through the pics you'll see it in there.

Not a lot of progress lately as I've been way too busy working over in the old shop since this one still doesn't have electricity. About a week ago we did get the floors all done up though. After talking to Danny about my goals for the floor I took his suggestion to buff out the concrete and use a clear sealer. This should keep oil from soaking in and staining the floor, and wont get damaged by welding sparks like an epoxy would. It was also pretty cheap.

As you can see there were a lot of tire marks on the floor from the various fork, and boom lifts we used to erect the building.





A few hours with a floor buffer and a garden hose and they all disappeared. Plus the floor is smooooooooth now.




Here is a shot of the floor with 3/4 of the sealer done. you can see the obvious difference in shine.

The new doors showed up this week and today we took the original (incorrect) ones back down and put the new ones up. In the process we also found a new use for a set of 39" red label BFG Krawlers.

When we put the doors up the first time we had a smaller warehouse style forklift....and it wasn't tall enough. We had to get creative by stacking some stuff on the forks to get the door up high enough, and it was quite sketchy. This time I made sure to get a taller forklift, but discovered a new problem. As the forks go up, the carriage goes up MUCH higher. Too high for the inside of my roof. The only way to get the forks up high was to lift the door from the outside, but since the drum sits higher than the door frame we once again needed something to rest it on. It just so happened that I had these tires around for a customer project. Worked like a charm, and much less sketchy than last time.

For those that aren't familiar with those tires, they are a specially built competition tire that BFG makes for rockcrawling, and are only sold to racers.....and guys that need to install doors.

Very nice building, I know that you will love it. Bring back a lot of menories of when I was building my building. I built a 50' X 60' with a 44' bi-fold door, heated and cooled. I live on an air-park and restore old airplanes and build homebuilt airplanes along with my love of VW's ( Have owned every year bug from 1956-1974) and building a V8 VW truck. One thing that you will find-out , no matter how big you build it , it will not be big enough. Sending pictures of my building, and my daughter's building( green trim). We work together. Dan R.

Do not move into your new building until it is finished. As you can see my sheetrock is not finished. ( R-19 insulation).

Looks like you are doing it right. Keep up the good work. Dan R.

Unfortunately I probably wont be moving in at least until december. I have a large project with a deadline on it that I have to get done, so I really dont have time to finish up the shop just yet. I would have liked to get in to do this project there, but I wanna make sure the shop gets done right the first time so I'm not gonna rush it.

Man, I didn't realize how long it had been since I'd been on here. Sadly, that's because I still haven't gotten around to tackling my VW project. The shop has definitely changed and filled up a lot. I'm finally getting around to the bug again and took a browse through my old threads and figured I should post an update. It's only been 6+ years, why not?

The yard has filled in around the building and it doesn't seem to stick out as much anymore, or maybe I'm just used to it. I also ended up building a shed to keep the lawn mower and other junk in. Yes, I built a 144sq ft shed next to my 1600sq ft shop and my 900sq ft garage because I didn't want junk cluttering up the place.

You'll notice that I also built a fence. In the last 6 years a gained a girlfriend, then a dog, then lost the girlfriend but kept the dog. The dog spends most of her time either in the yard or on her shop bed when I'm working.

The inside has gotten a little more filled in as well. I currently have a couple Ultra4 stock class Jeeps in getting prepped for a race, and my bug is on the chassis table waiting patiently.



Still haven't put walls up for the "office" upstairs, but the rest of the shop is pretty functional and mostly finished the way I want.

Love your canine assistant, who's name escapes me. IMHO, I think adding office walls would spoil the view.

I don't think I ever mentioned her name, so don't burn too many brain cells trying to remember. Her name is Chassis.
