I now have new roof on wiring was connected today and walls are finished also office area Is done.
Need to start to work on the cupboards shelves and basic reorganising etc.
I wanted to say as you will remember this has been a very stressful experience for me as I reported before, the new roof was installed it took three days when the guy finally finished I was in the words of all who saw me a new man.
The relief is tremendous I guess I was worrying about how I was going to get it all done with winter and that means rain rain and more rain here in Scotland with only sheet of thick visquine plastic held in place by a few batons and aided by concrete slabs to hold it all down and save all my hard work from the inclement weather was really getting anxious.
Anyway with the aid of a friend who did the roof with me I now feel much better. The reason I am telling you this is that sometimes we take on tasks forgetting we are a little older ten years ago I would have done all this and then some but I really feel I need to get myself to be more realistic about what or more importantly how long things will take.
After Christmas (as soon as possible after Christmas that is) I will start on the new metal shop and then its chips chips chips .I love you guys like brothers, have a great Christmas and a happy new year when it comes. I will take pics later when all is done and post them possibly spring kindest regards to all especially Dave alias (thrud) Martin alias (ragarsed) and John (the lord of the lathe) Stevenson and Neil our moderator.

I feel the same way you skinny bugger! http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif
Merry "Smithmas" to all! And a Joyful and most Prosperous new year to all my Brothers and Sisters.

And special thanks to Neil and all the gang at Village press for both this wonderful BBS and "Live Steam" (that I purchase from "Roundhouse Sales" for far more than I should http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif), "Machinists Workshop", and "Home Shop Machinist" (both renewed again for two more years, btw) - keep up the good fight - you have done well by my accounting!

Darn, I can't get anything done now because of the kids (altough working with them is reward in itself...). I figured by the time they grew up I'd start getting some of my projects finished, Now you're telling me that I wont get anything done then either because I'll be old. Darn, my whole "start as many projects as I can now (and store them in the house to keep the "fire" in my relationship), then finish 'em when the kids grow up" strategy is crumbling before my very eyes. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//eek.gif
