    Knocked a little bit out today. Was pretty breezy tho so couldn't hang any steel.ended up being 6 foot short on tyvek so I had to make some phone calls the find some scrap to finish it off. Got all the trim around doors done and hung the last windows and walk through the door. Had a little time before dark to get some bushes in also. Hoping to get some the majority of the last side finished tommorrow but we're expecting rain in the afternoon

    Last of the steel went in yesterday. And started the trim pieces. Debating about trying to hang garage doors ourselves or hiring it done. Dad did his about 15 yrs ago so he's atleast done them but we're running out of time to work on closing it up before winter

    Personally, I would get them hung by a garage door person. Those springs can be a bitch.

    Only pics I seem to have at the moment. Neither are up to date Interior in full of crap at the moment from not putting anything away on household projects.
    Exterior is all finished. Concrete is in and some lights, outlets in. Hope to finish walls and ceiling over the summer. Leaning towards plywood for everything. Have r25 to install on walls and will blow cellulose insulation in the attic. Still need to add some sort of exterior motion lights.[​IMG]
