So, I have posted previously about my planned layout, under a couple of other topics. At this point, I have to fix the concrete floor, in the room it will be in. I hopefully have a concrete contractor to deal with it, and will start working on it in the next 4 weeks. This allows my original plan to start construction in January. I still need to restore electric service to the room, but this should be minor. I will likely add a couple of circuits to the electric panel, just to make sure things work. Details, details....

This all after a move from NYC area to the Nashville, Tennessee area... I'm still kinda unpacking, but wasn't planning on starting the layout until January. This still is possible, but we will see.

Ok... We have a concrete contractor company coming in a couple of weeks, and are currently cleaning stuff off the floor. Six contractors garbage bags full of stuff, and more to go. I hope to get, and fill a dumpster later this week. Short of that, we will rent a uhaul, and drive it to a garbage transfer facility... Plus we will get a local electrician to fix the power to the back barn. The drainage issues are a work in progress, but improving. Such fun....

Well, the barn is more or less cleaned out, and will be pressure washing the floor, then painting it. Next big step is to retrieve stuff, from storage and getting ready for the big build...

Well, I was working on the storage shelves a bit today, until.... CRACK. Never have I backed out of a spot so quickly.... Guess I gotta rethink the shelves. I don't really need them, and will likely pull them down, replace with a couple of garage storage units, and build a work bench, with some of the salvaged wood. Like to ask the guy that built it, with little support and 1/4 inch plywood, exactly what he was thinking....
