There seems to be a pattern emerging, I get a bunch of non jeep personal projects to do(tractor repair, Mower deck repair, build the wife some cornhole boards etc etc) I get done, clean up the mess I left behind(I really gotta get better at putting my stuff away) Make some space so I can put the ZJ away, then the phone calls begin.....lol. My garage is a 26x26 pole barn thats 20ft tall. I've cut the center supports out of it and replaced then with 20ft 2X10's to carry the roof, working on building a partial 2nd floor inside for storage and a mini man cave. Doing it on the cheap, using salvaged materials. So far all I've paid for in materials are the 2x10's that were 20 feet long, dropped about 60 bucks. I've closed in the front of the barn and used some old house doors to make two big doors, and done a partial second floor at the rear thats holding most all my other wood. The barn was on the property when I bought it. It's got half a concrete floor, so I built up the other half temporarily so I can get in and out with a vehicle, and hopefully, come tax time, I can sock away the 600 bucks I need to get the rest poured. After that I can put in my staircase up to the planned catwalk so I can have access to the upstairs easily. I scored 1500 sqft of 1 inch fiberglass ceiling panels for free, these will help with insulating(steel sheathing on 3 side and a metal roof) Found a couple of 55 gallon drums to convert to a woodstove for winter(did I mention I have picked up about 100 wood pallets for firewood?)and I have a deal with a guy for a used 10ft overhead door for 300 bucks. I have my eye on a hydraulic scissor loading dock that I can convert to a low level lift (got about a 4ft lift on it, it's enough, and hopefully I'll get it for free.) Been finding a lot of used fluorescent light fixtures, but used wiring is hard to come by because the copper is worth so much, and the new stuff is waaaaay expensive, I'm still looking though. If I can ever get the inside organized(still a ton of stuff in there from when we moved in) I'll have plenty of room to play. Working on building a lean to on the side to put the extra lumber in, but the salvage pickings have been thin recently. Then once I get all these darn fords fixed, I'll get to my Jeep. There is a warehouse near me that may be getting torn down soon, I need to find out who the GC is and see if a couple of twenties will get me inside for a few hours to pull wiring and conduits. I found 400 feet or wiring on Craigslist, but the guy wanted about 20 bucks less than I could have bought new for, it's a local thing, everybody around here thinks their used stuff is made of gold.
