    You will regret not insulating the whole building.



    I didn't for a couple reasons, cost would have slowed everything down and putting the metal on with insulation between the metal and the frame is a pain and much harder. 


    I am hoping with a 10' wide x 9' high door on each end plus fans it won't be to bad, the doors are north and south which is where the wind is out of during the summer. It's way more circulation and openings than I am use to where I have been working, not saying it was not hot but here everything is hot in the summer, just being in the shade is a big part. We will see soon enough.

    That's looks like a beautiful setting, wow, now that's a hang out.

    I love the detail on the wood face plate, really nice, thanks for sharing.


    Thank you, it' the kind of thing that happens when you have time and get bored, I need to stay busy, don't do well without a project.

    RandyH, this is the place for a party waiting to happen.



      dtel, that will be a great place to hang out.

    Good looking XJ you have,



    Well it will be a good place for me to hang out but other people would rather about 100' away, just to the left behind the jeep the garden starts, in the garden is the bar. A much better place for others to hang out, and me.

    It's what I am best at hanging out, it's what old people do.

    I used to live in the general area....Elkhart, IN.. I can remember it snowing once late in May.  That was in the '60's


      I'm not ready for Spring.I have some dirt needing turned before it gets much nicer.  I hate cold weather and get reminded of it every AM. We may see high teen/low 20's tomorrow AM.  It will warm dramatically over the day... We should see high 60's.. maybe low 70's

    And I do have some flowers popping blooms. Narcissus and daffodils. Hyacinth will be along in a week or so...    


    gardening in this particular location is tough. Too hot and too cold in the same day for some things    


    Put a location in your avatar


    Yes a long way from the Mason Dixon line, he can almost throw a rock into Mexico.

    I can see how there might be a little reverberation going on in there @dtel!


    Did y'all use LocTite on all the bolts & screws?


    That is not bookshelf class equipment:o

    When the speakers were put in there there was only one empty table, the echo was bad. Just a few other things helped some so I am hoping once all the tools get in there they will help? The day I put them in I had it turned up, our daughter was by the house about 75' away and said I kind of like the echo sound. :o


    No loctite but it's tight, right up until something starts to rattle.

    Nice, it's always nice to have music playing while you're working, especially at home. Your choice of a first speaker is impressive. Just think..some people are happy with a clock radio.

    Have to have music, when we were building the frame there was what is about equal to a clock radio on the table, this is a little better.


    Those speakers were under the side patio covered and used for the yard, now they have a home but they can still be rolled to point out a door or picked up with the tractor for outside. I just have a problem letting go of speakers.

    Just cut the red meat out of the whites and skin that thin brown layer off thats on the fillets in a few spots and you have a nice white fillet. 

    Sounds like the same way you clean shark, red layer by the skin stays, the rest is white meat.

    They have been out there over a week now, and it has been played loud a few times, quite the echo for now but once all the tools go in and a little insulation on the West wall it will be better, sounds good enough for now as I work on it.  

    Just glad to have it going even to this point. There will be no electrical out there not on a GFIC, just to be safe. Only thing left on electrical is install the GFIC outlets at the beginning of each run and finish extending and hiding the hanging light cords 4 of those left and the inspector can come by. 10, 4' led lights light it up like daylight.

  7. Well it looks like something is going to happen with the roof, the city has approved a bid from someone ($$$) to redo the roof. In the meantime they will give us a place in the airport hanger to store whatever we want to keep dry until the roof is finished.


    I am hoping this get's the place dry, we will see.

  8. He was great, RIP.


    When the wife and I first got married we went to a small concert about 250 people, always loved Reggae, still do.  The concert was Peter Tosh, it was great show, mixed in my boxes of pics are some taken at that show, sitting about 8' away, this was about 42 years ago.


    It was a small place out in the country and when it got full they locked the doors, the band came out the back door, the first thing they did was line up spiffs on the keyboard, lit one, it went to the band then on to the audience through the whole show. 


    Still today I listen to as much reggae as anything else.

  10. There are a couple stations here that have non ethanol which is slightly more but we like it better, with no choice but to pay what they charge we don't pay much attention. It is much more convenient to pay at the pump so you get use to it to the point it's aggravating to walk into the building.


    It is what it is, still way better then lines at the pumps like in the late 70's. But it is like bait and switch.

  11. Not crazy about headphones instead of speakers either but they do give a little more of a controlled sound by removing the room. Instead of a sub for that visceral feeling one could always use some bass shakers on a recliner or sofa so you get the vibration and not as much as a sound in the room.


    When I shut down the stereo i start with the amps with the sub amp almost last, no speakers and just the sub sounds really strange, makes you realize the sub is not putting out as much as you would think when listening to music, except when played pretty loud.

    Jake update for the dog folks here. 

    Sorry to hear this, it's never good, you did all you could for the little guy, he was lucky to have you, and the other way around. 


    Good luck and hope he turns around, stranger things have happened.

    Might help control a problem until a permanent fix is done.

    It's kind of from different parts of the ceiling, for now there is garbage cans to catch water if it leak's more. That may be a better option than garbage cans.

    That would be sad after all the work you've put into it.

    Yes, but less work was put into that building than the new building that was bought, no leaks at the new building at least. The city needs to fix it, the rent is really very cheap but without fixing it they will be sitting with an empty building. Without fixing it who would ever want to use it, but things move slow with local politicians in a small town.


    I am not going to be part of trying to fix that roof, for me it's to high to play around with. I had 2 rules with helping the museum, I don't get on roofs or under buildings, no exception. I 'm not scared of heights, it's just not worth it to me. As far as under a building, I don't like spiders and not crazy being under a 100 year old building no matter how solid it feels.

  14. The first Klipsch I bought was bookshelf speakers and I mounted them on shelves for the same reason, not worrying about little kids doing something to the speakers or knocking one over on themselves.


    Then over time the kids grew up and the speakers got bigger to the point now the grandkids can't move one.
