I'm guessing that may have been from Everett to Olympia then? As it had the 1931 Everett truck plate with it. That would be nearly 200 miles round trip, yes that would be a long day indeed. I am having a great time with it, thanks again Bob.

Some more pics of the slow build. I am almost done putting up the roof joists then I will strap between them. I will be framing up a small facade at the top of the front wall to simulate an old general store look, and to give the appearance of two different buildings, side by side. Then I can finish sheathing and papering the front wall. My next trip with the AA will be to get the tin roofing. Hopefully I will have a dry spot to show for all this within a couple of weeks.

Looks like its coming along nicely, but what is that green stuff on the ground? Haven't seen any of that around here for a couple months. Also were is the elevator to Henrys' Pent House suite?

I guess a trade off for not getting alot of snow, is getting alot of rain. Moss wants to grow on everything around here. Hopefully this shed will save some junk from going green.
As for the elevator, I was planning on building a small platform, maybe 3x4', lifted by a spare electric chain hoist I have. I would like to store some engine blocks up there.

I was thinking more "out of sight, out of mind". I have a problem with throwing stuff out, not sure having more storage will solve that, but we'll see how it goes...

I moved from a house with a cluttered, cramped two car garage into one with a 2,300 sq ft eight car garage. It is now cluttered and cramped. :D

A guy I know in Upland Calif did a quickie under-cover addition to his garage. Had it all prepped, and got his contractor buddies to throw it up on one Sunday.

Got red-tagged by the Building Dept. on Tuesday morning... :evil:
