I bet you that those concrete pads make the floor heavy.

Looking good Jerry.

How come you didn't set the anchor bolts
for the machinery when you poured the pads?

Thanks for looking Roland. No more sand for this year!! Darn it!!!

Bill thanks for finding that. I guess I was drinking that day and didn't notice my crew forgot them!!!

But I'm working on the framing for the front and back on the building!!!

Star drill and some lead will take care of the lack of mounting studs. :) Just get one of your lackeys to do the hard work.

Here's the door I have been working on.

I can't make up my mine on the color so I left them Silverwood.
The brown is the inside color to match the floor.

This is the question which looks better the smaller window which is about 2' or the bigger one which is about 3'??

It's like one I like is the bigger one but in real life is it to big.

Looking great Jerry, colour contrast between in and out is nice.

I prefer the larger window, it seems more proportionate to the door.
Of course the pictures you show are out of context and incomplete so I may be wrong.
The larger window definitely looks better at this point. Throw in two mullions to divide it into
horizontal thirds and I think it will be just right.

Nice looking door Jerry. I like the look of the bigger window better. I also like Karl's idea of dividing it into thirds.

I like the bigger window area too.
I'll deviate from the other comments by suggesting to divide the opening for four panes of glass.


As you think, so will you be.

I'll go with the smaller windows. To me, they look more realistic. Sorry to go up stream..

It's only make-believe

Thanks for the input. I will divide the window area I just wanted to get a size.

Actually I tried to divide it with real glass but gave up because I really need to make a jig to do it right.
