    So thats the "right" way to work on lights in a tall shop? Here I thought it was to put a ladder in the back of a pickup truck and stand on the top rung? :whistle:

    Good luck with the new shop Chuck, if you move. Only been to SLC a couple of times, and enjoyed the trip both times. The streets are very wide, the people are friendly and nice.

    I guess I'm about to join the small shop club. We are going to be making an offer on a house with a 16x18 garage. There is an approximately 10x10 falling down shed in the back to store stuff. And eventually (a year out or so), I'll Build a real shop out back where the shed is now. Somehow I need to fit all the tools and two jeeps: parts off and parts on the new one. But I am thankful to be out of a rental and back to home ownership.

    As someone said in this thread, cleaning out garage leads to playing with stuff. Had to dig out a puller to fix my table saw and found this guy. Brought back fond memories of working on my brothers 55 Olds with my dad. Had to put it together and crank it just a bit for old times. IMG_3379.jpg

    Seems like every weekend lately has me working on something I wasn’t planning on or helping someone else for a day. Then the next day is spent on the shed, fighting the wind, and just generally not feeling like I got much done. This was another one of those weekends. Last weekend was another yet. Managed to get some paint on the the trim on the front of the shed a week ago. Trimmed out and almost finished the wainscoting today.

    Feels like eating a whale.

    I matched the brown from the windows. Didn’t want to bring in another color to the mix. Still need to decide what to do for finishing the big doors but it’ll probably include cutting some panels and painting them white to match the walk door.

    It's hard , especially when doing this yourself & working full time too. But it looks great . (y) BTW, your "Walk Door" only has a very light grey/ white primer on it.

    Another day of sneaking in time between needing to get other stuff done and dodging the weather. Three sides are totally done minus slinging some silicone around the window frames. Almost forgot about the snow bars still needing to get on the roof... I found those tucked in a corner.

    Still a long road ahead.
