    Like the US steel gal
    The China is thin coating of gal and will rust sooner.

    When I building metal buildings we put roof on first.
    Next side where the wind blows.

    That give some wind protection
    A lot work we had [Tee hangars] internal walls to and once the outside done I could work indoors.

    Wait for the spring

    I sent door's to ALASKA and call me in January ask what color is the steel we having prob for parts.
    I ask why "we 3 feet of snow ❄ "

    The only time I ever shutdown a job was for thunder and high wind. Electrify down flying iron work would not look good on 6:00 news.

    Back before I retired I was VP of my golf league and our golf tournaments were managed by me. Twice in 15 years I had to shutdown play due to imminent lightning.threat. My son makes the call on wind and temperatures. Not my shop!!!

    Golf clubs are a magnet for lighting and thunderstorms.

    It is alway best to error on the side of safety.

    In fourty years we only had one employee with 3 stitches and that was because he took off his gloves.

    Weather has been either too windy, too cold or too much snow for the last few weeks to work on the shop. Garage doors are in, so weathered in now. Working on interior wiring tomorrow. Lots of holes to drill in the wall studs.

    If that's one of the convertible ladders that you can set up on stairs, they come in very handy...

    I have both, and there really wasn't much difference in price. I use the convertible one a lot more... but he's the boss...

    Re: Son's New Shop

    Yesterday got 5 more sheets of tin on before the winds came up too high. Got half the wiring runs drilled in the studs today and ran some wires for the ceiling lights. Mounted some of the outlet and switch boxes. Pics coming in a couple days.

    Re: Son's New Shop

    Yesterday ran wiring for the two garage door openers and wired in the indoor switches for the garage doors at the son's shop. Showed the son how to wire a single outlet box. He struggled a bit, but got the wires all done correctly. Also finished the wiring for the led south side ceiling lights and hooked to the CB in the panel.

    Went to see a neighbor of his to check out the twin baby goats born 2 hours earlier. All seemed well with the little ones.

    Re: Son's New Shop

    Finished up the roofing tin, less the gable end trim and the ridge cap a week ago. Did get the gable end trim holes drilled and completed all the wall outlet wiring. Was too windy to install the gable end trim so finished doing the garage door trim boards and reinstalled the door seals. Next two days are snow and wind, so some time off for me.

    The wind has been relentless here this winter... not much fun working outside in it. I hope we get out of this weather pattern soon or it could spell dust storms this spring.

    We have a lot of days just like that here in WY. I like winter, but I have had enough for this year.
