Spent the full day today with my neighbor and fellow 510 enthusiast placing the steel flashing around the insulated foundations now that they are exposed again. However I came up 1x 10' section short, I think I failed to include the section between the man door and the bay door when I orders the material - damn!. Well hopefully i can get some bent up at the local sheet metal place to be identical to the ones on the building. I have a sample so that shouldn't be a problem.

I'll post a photo tomorrow. But it sure feels good to make some forward progress again. Next will be drain rock full depth around the building to make it proper, and hopefully the engineer will come by and give his approval on the framing (he's two weeks late already) so that I can look at getting the final inspection done by the city.

Photos to come tomorrow.

Well, with the fun out of the way with the excavator a couple weeks ago, it was time to get back to real work.

Again, Glen has been my inspiration keeping things rolling. He's not a siding installer, but I think he's having fun with this. And he keeps mentioning how much his own needed list is growing which I will be helping him with... I'm getting scared now!

At any rate, on ward with the flashing. So this is what i needed to deal with = this needs to be covered.

Bending this 24 gauge wasn't going to be easy, so Glen's idea was to build a cardboard template first as many of these bends were going to be repeated multiple times. I found the cardboard at a local craft store and the next day we went to work.

As It turned out, we were better then we through we'd be. In the end some bends were done over the corner of the bench, some done on the floor up over a 2x6 or piece of 3/4" plywood with a nice square edge. Most methods worked, but it certainly helped to have two sets of hands on the material.

The above work covering the insulated footings was over 2 days work on it's own! But we did a great job. The only thing I need to go back and do is I think I will extend the piece at the step down in photo 6310 as that flashing will get quite close to the surface. I'll tuck a piece under with some non hardening glue as sealant and rivet it into place as I don't want to have any of the back filled gravel moving away from the building and exposing the Delta dimply material.

The last piece I bent on my own. Not having that extra pair of hands certainly added to the task a bit. I simply wedged these 2x4's down from the roof against the saw horses, worked well but took some time and materials for sure.

With the lower sheet metal flashing installed by the end of last weekend, I had 9 yards of gravel/drain rock brought in to place around the building, trust this will be enough, filling in around the backside will take another machine rental, likely a skid steer or tracked version of the same. My son will be happy! See how that goes, more on that fun later I'm sure.

There's 2 Datsun's - that's a 82 ZXT in the background :-) And I really hope to see Ole Blue in there this winter as well.

No photos, but last Thursday and most of Friday was spent getting the flashing trim up in place. This included around both the man and bay doors, as well as all four corners installed. It was amazing that it took that long, but again working with the steel does take time, and a lot of cutting blades, cut off discs and a new metal blade in the chop saw as well.

I went camping (in the rain) with my son's scout troop over the weekend - my feet were wet from the moment I started setting up the tent Friday night until I got home at 11am Sunday and was able to get into my dry work boots! we had a great time at camp, my son really enjoyed himself and my challenge was just keeping him dry and warm!

The sun however came out on the way home from camping and I hung the tent, sleeping bags and even the tarps in the garage to dry.

I wasted no time in getting back to work on the shop. Glen again joined me shortly afterwards and we spent 6 hours yesterday getting into the siding. The first order of business was another layer of felt paper. Nature had removed much of what I put up last fall, and the sun wasn't kind to what was left on the building.

These are all firsts for me. Remember when I said at the beginning of this project that I hadn't ever built anything wood in the past - this is still my first project. But it sure felt good to get that first siding panel up! By the days end at 6pm, the shed started looking like a shed. I'm liking it for sure.

Later this week we may be able to work together on the north side shown above half papered. Then the south side would be next, with the east side against the fence done last.

For the exterior, that just about wraps up the building, and I can get a final inspection done. The gravel needs to be back filled, and I'm sure my wife will be happy to have me start finishing off the rest the the yards landscaping as well. The little shed will now come down as it will soon not be needed. I have to get some shelving up in the shop first and transfer the rest of the crap we tend to collect. Looking forward to all that.

But the project is far from finished, electrical is the next big step....

Siding done yesterday, my god what a relief! It looks great, I'm lovin' the look itself. Colour is bright, but it'll be durable for sure. The 24 gauge will make it durable as well from being hit with just about anything aside from a car. I do see aluminum plats being made fro the time beside the doors for sure.

I had no idea what I was in for regarding installation, thank god there were only 2 windows!

Choosing 24 gauge made it heavy; 13' long sheets are hard to maneuver even with two guys! Thanks so much to Glen for his help, couldn't imaging doing this job by one's self! We celebrated by going for a drive up to the Stave falls dam at sunset.

Now about that drain rock....

You guys are funny - just noticing your comments now!

Yes, copper and aluminum were involved - see below.

Thanks huge to Jason for supplying the 250M cables, all 3 cut to length on spools and the 4 gauge copper ground line.

Sorry Robyn, although the plums that come off that tree are awesome, I did not make any beverages out of them. In fact, my son ate more than half the crop himself, the 5 of use shared the rest. But back to the shop...

I also invested in a couple books....

A day after picking up the cable from Jason, I picked up my inside order of supplies from Bartle and Gibson. It was noce that i could actually use a local outfit as their price came in competitively.

IMG_7101.JPG

So between the two runs, I have $3k in wiring supplies now being distributed all over the place. A 200 amp sub panel, 34 full size breakers, 40 outlets and related hardware, 14/2 and /3 for the lights and 12/2 and /3 for the plugs which will be all 20 amp circuits and proper plugs. there will be an 8/3 wire for each the compressor, forklift charger and hobby lathe (all 240V) and a 6/3 cable for the welder outlet. Everything in CU - I'll still need to get the 240V plugs, but we are good to go otherwise.

The lighting will be all 4xT5 high-bays - all 9 fixtures. The 12' ceiling projects a light study of every area above 65 lum. I'll put them on 2 circuits, one over the 'machine shop' and one over the 'work bay'. I considered LED's, but right now they are twice the cost with minimal efficiency differences. So the pay out now isn't adding up. However in 5-10 years that will no doubt be a different story. The LED's are already half the cost they were 2 years ago.

Hopefully this is the height of this mess and when all the connections are made it will look better.

But I have been at work inside the shop.

Initially my floor confections were envisioned to look like this as I'm at the electrical supply.

In practice, there was far too much tub exposed to the area outside the wall, so I drastically cut back to this.

Lumex will run from the breaker panel to the box shown, strand wide to the two outlets in the middle of the floor. At the moment one will be 240V powering my toy lathe, the other will be 110V for the work bench located in the middle of the floor.
