My internet service is real slow. >:( But I will try to get one up for you. By using the power wheel chair controller which is 24v, I use two 12v lawn tractor batteries. On the motors, the gearboxes can be shifted in and out of gear. That is how I am able to control each motor for what they do.

Cost wise, I think at this point I have around $300.

In the future, I will be swapping out the controller. Member Kbeitz did a great write up on what is need to swap everything over to a 12V system. 8)

Your setup is looking good Paul, and yes, working alone requires much ingenuity as well as clamps.   ;D
and a crane!  ;D

I know what you're talking about Paul. Honey do want a mud room so my pump house has been put on hold. So now I have two projects to finish before the snow flies.

The winds of change are blowing at hurricane force and I don't like it but good shall come even though I see not how.

I like it too! ;D I did have a couple that had split. I will try some chinking to fill in and then spray some clear log sealer on the building. That should help it last longer.

Kind of been under the weather. Got out this morning and frozen my butt off. Was only 47f with a stiff wind. >:( Guess my blood is to thin.

I just kind of took it easy and built some steps and built a sticker box. I use 24" stickers. Reason, I stack all my lumber on 8"x16" cinder blocks. I use 26" -36" tin roofing panels to cover the lumber. It is so much easy for me to move things around in this size bundles with my tractor. ;D

 

 

Once I was happy with that, I need to set up the hangers to hang my old pirogue to get it out the weather. Dang thing is over 45 years old. ;D Using some bike cycle hangers that have pulleys from Harbor Freight, done.

 

 

Fixing to do a add on to the other side of the shack. ;D
