Lyle, I'm jealous.
My pitiful shed which is really just a pavilion type structure, is 12x26, open on all 4 sides  and cold in the winter the few times I saw then.

Do you eat? Sleep? Bathe?  ??? or just work?  :D

Do you have other plans for that Kenworth other than scaffolding?

I haven't seen a cab over KW in years, one of the first semi's I learned to drive on.

Really enjoying your build.  :)

Almost ready for the roof. Dave and I worked most of the day tieing in the top portion of the building. In the next coupl of days I will clear a spot next to the mill and prefab the whole roof on the ground, tin and all then get a picker to come and lift it into position, That will save a whole bunch of up and down work.

Just bought the ol KW a couple of days ago for 500 bucks, it has two brand new front tires on it and had about 300 bucks worth of fuel in it. I dont think I lost on that deal..lol I drove it home about 20 miles and she run like a dream!

The ol KW come in pretty hand so far as scaffold. I will be combining oats soon so it might be used as a grainery for a while. I can probably get 1200 bushel in the old beast...lol

if you search youtube for videos of houses build in one day(mostly by habitat for humanity) a lot of those build the roof on the ground and then lift it into place, but when i went through i couldn't find one that had much detail, just a quick time lapse where its just a frame or 2 and then its attached. but i have seen it in person before, they just had a little extra bracing and a big crain...
