    Metal building shop

    My mechanic is retiring but wanted a shop to do smaller stuff for neighbors and friends. I didn't plan on building any more buildings but seeing as how I suck as a mechanic and he lives right down the road, maybe I had better build one more. I don't have any more hired hands but would be able to get a little help from the guys renter. It's a bolt up and this picture shows what I got done in one day by myself. So if any one is thinking about building a shop, this is the fastest way to get in one.

    The next day, I was able to get the rafters up and most of the purlins with a couple hours of help from the renter.

    Today I finished the framing and now it's the tin guys turn in a few days. This is almost too much work for a 66 year old man.
