Scramble

Just curious. I've got an uninsulated garage, and a project truck, which means I'm trying to get as much work in on it before the weather turns cold. Am I the only one scrambling to get projects done?

I still work out in the shop even when it is cold, and my shop here isn't even close to reasonably heatable... I do need to get done with my current project for the fact the farm will be needing it for the winter, but I can still do some things every so often.

I had a pole building put up last year.... no insulation, but I have one of those kerosene heaters ... some guys call 'em torpedo or a salamander - works great! For me #1 get a roof and a wind block ( the building) and #2 get a floor! Got tired of loosing nuts in the the dirt/gravel.

I guess I'm the lucky one here, I have a two vehicle shop with concrete floor and insulated walls with a wood stove- I am of the belief that the shop is for winter projects to be finished by spring. To me winter means quality time with the welder, torch, grinders, etc, couple of bottles of Pepsi (or beer if I feel like it) and the radio cranked up on Lazer!!

i started insulating the ceiling of my garage last year, but still havent finished it yet. the walls do pretty good, as there are buildings less than 4 feet from them, so it blocks most of the wind out. if we owned it, id do all the garage, and drop a stove in there, but we dont, so we dont want to put to much money into it anyway. i wish the owners would have sprung for the gold and did the whole garage insulated, but hey at least i got a roof over my head in the winter.

Just did the last pour on my building. I'm not too worried about insulation since I spent the last few winters with gravel floor or no building at all.

I'm always scrambling to get a project done. Been awhile since I've posted (or even been on FTE even) because of that scramble. This year I've almost finished my kitchen rebuild, installed a tin ceiling, tore down my shack of a garage and replaced with new 24x24 garage, and moved my wood shop from the basement to the garage. I have 6 new windows coming in 2 weeks to install too. All of it behind schedule. After the kitchen and windows are done I plan to spend my winter on my truck. Rebuild my 63's 292, tranny swap, disc brakes and new radiator core support for starters.

BTW, my garage is uninsulated, unheated, and no electricity except for the extension cord running from my house. (power will be coming next spring) Besides the power, I could care less since it's a million times better than working in the back yard.

Sam - LOL - that's exactly where I am ... a million times better to have a roof and walls and extention cord for electricity!
