Very neatly done. I like the subtle but noticeable variation in color on the floorboards and the proportions of the wall.

Mike thank you; I used a little larger lumber for strength and stability.

Yannis thank you for your interest; great having you following along.

Rick thank you. I figured the floor's appearance would raise a red flag; but all in due time.

Jerry thank you for your kind words. The third shift spent most of the night cleaning up after the flooring installers left. Yes Rick should have plenty of dust to spare.

Michael thank you for your positive comment; much appreciated. I must confess though that the post that I linked to earlier was a good reference for the walls.

Moving right along on the back wall:



The back wall was sided using scale 1x6's vertically. Didn't want the walls with the same boards as the floor; wanted some variety and also because I had them on hand. Also added an extra 8x8 in the middle of the non window walls for more support of the siding. The window frames were painted red for a "pop" of color. Sadly this pretty much depleted my framing and siding lumber so I ordered more from Northeastern Lumber which arrived in 2 days..nice.



The wood was stained with a maple minwax stain, then a coat of A&I was added after the stain dried and the red window frames were also given a coat of A&I to tone them down a little. Added a second coat of A&I to the top portion of the wall to show more dirt which collected higher up. Next will be to paint the outside of the wall as well as finishing the windows and adding fake glass.

That's it for now. Comments/suggestion much appreciated.

Looks good to me. Nice weathering on the wall.

Michael thank you.

Mike thank you; that makes two of us. The Climax should be a commanding presence in the Shop.

Rick thank you.

Jerry thanks; I was pretty pleased with the weathering myself.

Now that I have more than enough lumber on hand I can finish up the walls. Also ordered four machines, a boiler, and some detail stuff from Crow River this morning. If there's room I may scratch a pedestal grinder as my fifth machine; we'll see.

Larry, brilliant job on the framing. The stain colour is great, and the red windows just make them stand out. Excellent.
