Re: Shop improvements and upgrades. Better Space!

Anyway, a step closer to bat proof. East gable end is done. And the bat guy will be here next week to seal up all the little gaps.

Re: Shop improvements and upgrades. Better Space!

Boy, do you have a nice shop!
Lots of work gone into it, I can see that.
I have seen your ďoldĒ shop in pics, but didnít know this was behind it. Its doubled the space now?
I live in the middle of a small city and have to drive 3 miles to get at my shed, when I take the bicycle it is half of that....
So, Iím jealous!

But not of your bats...
We have them here too, I see them flying around, donít know where they come from. I think from the nearby park (I hope).
Hope you get rid of them and keep your things clean.

Re: Shop improvements and upgrades. Better Space!

Working on organizing my shop better. Building an office space, closing in my area to climate control a smaller area. Trying to make it easier on myself.

Organization is hard for me to do. Office space and climate control will be really handy. Good luck with your project!

Thanks Kees! Yes, the back half was there and with the upgrades it is like space has been doubled since it is so much more usable. We are very fortunate and I just walk across the road to get to the shop. Three miles would be tough, though I watched you build a very cool truck in a friends carport. Canít beat skill and determination!

We are having fun with it too. Boys were bowling with lawn mower tires and water bottles.

You bet Mike. We will have some good times on projects over the next several years!

The bat guy was here today sealing up all the gaps the old fashioned way...with a ladder. Heat index warnings out today and kept checking on him to make sure he was OK. Nice hardworking young guy. He only has about 20 feet to finish up tomorrow.

He put in two, one-way bat valves. One of the valves is at the top of the clear plastic tube.

Bats can check out and they canít check back in....hopefully. Keeping fingers crossed.

Here is a video of the cattle hornets I mentioned earlier. The hive in this car is about half the size of the one in my neighbors garage

Holy cow! Your friend may have to burn the building down!

In other news, I am not noticing any new patterns of guano so hopefully this has worked! Will do a good cleaning up this week end and continue to monitor.

Happy Labor Day!

Re: Shop improvements and upgrades. Better Space!

Dang ..that's a big ol nest...reminds me of one I got into a couple yrs ago at the hunting club....dang things built a nest in a ground level shooting house...I went by on my tractor and they covered me up..they got me 7 times before I could get away.....I slipped back in there a couple days later and stuck 2lbs of tannerite in the window...a shot from my 25.06 sent em to hornet hell...the 4x4 house was about 1/3full of nest...

Fingers crossed here for you Doug...maybe that'll be the last of em....

Re: Shop improvements and upgrades. Better Space!

Thanks Greg.

It rained pretty heavy and with the back door open a low spot channeled a good amount of water in.

All good for scrubbing out some guano. Hopefully there wonít be any more!

Those hood pins on the suburban seem a bit obstructive.

Yep...my first project on that one is hood pins that look like quarts of engine oil.

I think I can put away that plastic sheet now that was protecting the faded paint.
