Smaller 4' deep on other end, above where work bench and lathe and probably drill press and who knows what else will go, basically free space.  Going to toss some task lighting under it once i know what is going where.  
 


 

shelves down side for bottles and cans of stuff


 

rack built into wall for fabrication pieces


 

getting so close to getting everything settled that i can almost justify staying out here for a few hours tonight and getting things wrapped up, but it's been a long day

Sorry obviously I suck as an enabler.  I should tell you how sexy your Devin is more often.

Happy to help! (And get out of the house!)

I must admit to oogling the Devin when I was supposed to be working, the wood in the pass side door kept catching my eye.

In related news, the only thing better than a friend with extra firewood is a friend with extra firewood and a bobcat to load it.  Bucking logs in the back of an S10 is way easier on the back.  Thanks Patrick!

The skidsteer went home yesterday.  I could use it indefinitely but I got all the hard stuff done and didn't want to keep his machine forever.  I have 5 giant pine logs on the trailer for the sawmill.

I think I speak for a lot of us when I say that the Devin is the most eagerly awaited build thread on the forum.

Patrick, will there be a centrally located knee brace under the loft back into the exterior wall....I presume the 2x4 was there for construction purposes? +1 for exposed wall studs to hide stuff in between.

In reply to 759NRNG (Forum Partidario) :

No am going to do the triangulation from above off the knee braces that go to the trusses.  Undecided if it's going to be wood and screws or cables and turnbuckles. 2x4 leg is indeed temporary.   I used 2x 2x6 to carry the front of the 4' deep one.  2x 2x12 for the 6' one and I'm probably going to put some railing up there because I anticipate kids running around on it while i'm not looking.  
 

the 6' deep one will be mostly for light bulky things that take up too much floor space like body panels.  Stuff i can carry up the ladder safely that do not need accessed more than once when they get installed.

It's getting to me, but i'm not leaving the couple half done cars half done.  I heart this little car so much.  From the first time i saw the pictures of it on craigslist.  Getting it was one of those epic chase stories.  It's been an adventure and a half already.

 

getting ready to move it to a sleepy corner for a while 


 

out of curiosity because i knew they changed drums along the way somewhere and this car has 2 steel and 2 aluminum meaning they probably used what they could get along the way somewhere, it's wearing 15" front and 16" rear wheels.  16's were later.  I have a set of 5 matching 16's with my later model drums.

You can probably just hang it off the ceiling like a bike or a kayak

Yep i have one manifold by the compressor and just used 50' hose to get to stuff.  That's going to stay but i'll tee off the tank and send one side to that and one to a new 3/4 regulator filter and the new lines.  One outlet by big door and a couple manifolds in other places.  Have a 25' retractable hose reel to go close to the lift too that i got when we cleaned out an estate house where they didn't want it.

Apparently the devin is slightly wider at the chest than at the hips where i was measuring and it would not actually fit through the golf cart sized door by 2".  So i ordered a roll of the clear slat curtain door stuff and i'll make a 6' wide door from that, which bonus will fit the Wartburg through so i can roll it right back instead of out and around.  Started dismantling the opening but it was 92 today so i only put in an hour
