With leafs it?s once and done, with coil overs you?re increasing your maintenance load. I like trucks to ride like trucks though, I know a foreign concept to you Chevy guys.....

Dave, she already commandeered the whole mezzanine. Why would she need a rack? A rack indicates permanence & that ain?t a happening....

Couple hours today on loft, got almost all of the floor laid and the posts at bottom of steps added. Need to pick up a chunk of engineered beam & some ijoists drops to finish framing around stairs completely.



Then I?m down to assembling on last rack but not sure where it will go.

I have one, we use it for canning and camping trips. I bought the full length griddle so we can cook breakfast on it when camping & also the large carry canvas bag. No issues, it works really well. Think we paid $100 on sale for it.

Funny, I asked about your level because I thought it was another DeWalt tool I needed to buy. ...kinda became obsessed.. should probably start a new tool thread to show off all of the yellow..

Not sure, level I know isn?t dewalt but that case might be....

We stopped by local farm store today (Jax) after church for paint supplies and they have HUGE dewalt tool selection. I was definitely eyeballing a couple more. I am going to have two garages now so I have a valid need! :popcorn:

I had checked Costco & HD both, neither had shelves locally that were rated at 2500# per shelf. My steel parts weigh up quick.

I found these online and had HD ship them in for free from Cali. The gladiator units were also an option but the lead time was quite a bit longer and price wasn?t any better. The solid single shelf for me to use as a work bench between two units was another selling point.

I like dewalt though on tools as you mentioned. Worth noting other than these shelves and my cordless units both big saws were either bought used or clearance for new models. My cordless I received a large rebate to trade old units in.

Pulled muscle in my back this morning before church. Most likely a result of tossing heavy boxes up to loft in shop from third ring on step ladder yesterday. Took two muscle relaxers and fought not to fall asleep during service (should have skipped I guess). Feel like crap and it?s a three ring circus at home getting things ready for listing photographer tomorrow.

Moved more of the wife?s stuff to shop loft. Then moved stuff from last weekend in the shallow bay to the loft (nothing like moving stuff 3x!). Baylee helped, other two were MIA. Then ran to HD, shelving units arrived 10k, 2500 per shelf. Bought three at $200 each and free shipping. Wanted ones in NT but their shipping is obscene to Hippyland. Set first one up today as a 3 shelf unit, 4th shelf is going to be positioned as a work station between two racks. Each shelf unit comes with one solid shelf & 3 wire racks. Solid top is leaned up against wall to left or rack.

Forget the X cable, my wife sent over more of her junk. That loft ain?t going anywhere unless it takes a direct hit by an F5 tornado (shop is in weld county Colorado so it could happen). Sorry forgot to snap a pic...

JR, honest answer on website is I?m not sure. Making progress but I?m the hold up and it?s down the list on priorities at the moment. If you need something specific PM or call, I?ll get you pics and pricing if I have something suitable. Best I can do at moment, my apologies.

Started this morning adding some more bracing. I had to leave for several hours mid day but was able to get a good chunk of stairs complete. The extra bracing really stiffened this structure up. I don?t think I?ll have any issues once I get this finished.

That last sentence sounds pretty useful, as in:
#1-changing light bulbs
#2- better built than those Walmart fold up shades (Will it fit in the Jeep?)
#3-add chain=mobile gantry
#4-add ramps and cut floor out=mobile lube "pit"
...and last
#5- mobile speach platform, for when Shawn runs for Gov'ner

Front to back it?s already very solid & im missing a few braces yet. Side to side it sways a bit yet but I have 4 more braces to install & then the 4 posts and stairs. I am closing on the 24th so after that then I?ll bolt it down and think it will be good honestly. Some of the sway I?m getting is more of a wobble as until this is complete and weighted down it can slide on the Crete a bit. I can actually push it and move it by myself if I care to at the moment.

So I?m going over my 2 day estimate a little. Have roughly 20 hours in this project now and that includes swapping out a junk 2x12x16 they sent me and buying some 4x posts and more timber lock lags.

Today was time to square and stiffen up things a little. So I started by cutting 45 degree braces from the 4x4 posts.







And this is where I left off today, 3/4 of decking has been laid and I ran out of timber locks so I bought more on the way home. Finish attaching 4x braces tomorrow and frame the stairs.

Shawn, it was his ex's brother. He had framed my brother's garage about 15 years ago and we were pretty impressed....but now he has a crew, and rides around in a truck all day. The phone call went as expected:
"my guys are saints", "why do you have oddball sized doors?", "why didn't you double check my guys' work?", "why did it take you a year to realize the issue?". I swear, my brother talks tough but sure lets guys run over him.  He can't say I didn't warn him..."I'm going to sub my own house" he says. "how hard can it be?" he says. 
:facepalm:

It?s all in the little details....... :popcorn:

Well, I notched two 4x6 posts incorrectly for my mezzanine two days ago. Wish I would have known then that if I screw up framing somehow it is Dave?s fault! Guess I had better up update the build thread....
Just turn them over and cut the other side. Or just shorten the height of the structure by your mess up height.  Lol

In the morning I?m going to return a junk 2x12 they sent me as it?s split down the middle and won?t make for a very good stair stringer. Will pick up remaining cross bracing material and some 2x8 to frame in the upper portion of the stairs.

Was able to squeeze in 4 hours roughly today. Started by installing those two middle posts and per the plan (which Dave beat me to the punch on as he described in his last post) went about bracing the i joists with drops from them. I was able to get about half on each side from drops. Then started sheeting the deck with liquid nail and screws. I?m using all timber locks or screws on this build.



Here is where I left it this afternoon.

Copy on stiffening it up, still have to square things up down below as well.

I haven?t officially closed on the property, think I?m doing that the 24th. I told owner I wouldn?t drill the floor until I owned it. But I?ll make angle iron floor mounts.

From there it was trimming the i joists to width of bay which was 14?



And at days end today roughly eight hours into the build.

So yesterday was about three hours worth of work, maybe....

Today I was able to squeeze in around five hours. I started the day trimming the engineered beams to 16? then braced them to a single post and stood them up.



Then stood another post up and bolted them together, square, brace and repeat other side of the bay.

Acquired access to the new shop Friday. Wife moved a bunch of her house junk into it Sat. Nothing like moving stuff three times....

So at 11 am the local lumber yard dropped this off from a roll back bed truck.



A little sorting and we had our components for the mezzanine. 



I had two hours, so I cut posts down to 8? & started notching them to accept the engineered beam that will be cradled into the posts.



I had two cut and had to head home to meet window cleaners...... :rolleyes:
