Hi, y'all. My dad and his dad both have done construction all of their lives. Growing up I did a decent amount of building with my dad, but now I have a desk job. I'm working on building a 24X30 shop in my back yard, and today came up with a question I figured I would run by everyone here. I posted in in the construction section of this forum. Anyway, I've been taking lots of pictures of my shop as I work on it. Here is the mostly up-to-date project, and I'll be updating the page as I go along:

Oh... I redid the header over that side door and now have 2X12s in place rather than the double stacked 2X4s. Just in case someone noticed that needed to be done. :-)

Welcome, but I do have to ask, what do you do now?

I work for a company that makes internet equipment like routers and switches and stuff like that and I test the new products to find any problems they may have before we ship them to the public. I work in a lab maybe 20% of the time surrounded by those routers and switches and hundreds of miles of cabling and the rest of the time I'm at a desk where I can perform most of the tests that need to be done. I can still swing a hammer, but I get sore a little easier than I used to. :nerd:
