            I finished up the 1X12 pine roof sheathing this afternoon and have started working on my barn trolley

              It was kind of comical today. That shot was from a couple of weeks back. Here I am... an old fart... wrestling 12' planks up onto a snowy garage roof by myself... fighting to get those last three rows up... just about set a new snow jump record!

                Over the past few weeks, I've picked up two maple leaf hay trolleys that were made a block from my house. The Trolleys came from Sydenham... The Beatty track and centre drop pulley came from a guy down near Tilbury... The Beatty hangers came from up near North Bay... I picked up a double block and tackle to give me some mechanical advantage. I am assembling the track and hangers now to align with my upper floor rafters. I plane to life an old factory cart up there... and my canoe. I have the second trolley just to run back and forth on the main floor - I have about 9' of clearance.
                My second floor is going to be made up of 2" hemlock planks - so I'll have lots of carrying capacity.

                    The new shop is looking good Doug, it'll be great to move some of your collection in when the structure is complete.

                      I am working on a build sequence that allows me to do that. When I had the trench dug for the gas line, I ran conduit with several Internet and security cables. I cant really store much until then.

                      I am thinking I might start with a temporary run of electrical from the adjacent garage. There is conduit and I salvaged a whole pile of armoured cable with receptacle - boxes in place a while back. It would give me temporary lighting and power as I close in the last wall.

                              I will be picking up the other half of the hemlock for the second floor this weekend.

                              I keep coming up with new ideas. In the first photo attached here, is the second floor where I have already installed the 2” hemlock on the south end. I had a friend over last weekend and he suggested I put in a trap door below the hay trolley beam so I can move stuff between the first and second floor inside, as well as outside. I have the head-room on the first floor for a second Beatty Trolley, which would mean that I will have to put the trap door on the south end of the second floor.

                              I’m also thinking of extending the middle 5” X 6 ½” Floor joists through the front wall on the second floor, creating a shelter from rain outside the doors on the lower floor and a platform for underneath the hay trolley beam outside the second floor.

                              Rather than build a staircase which takes up room, I plan to use a rolling ladder (similar to the second pic) that came from a general store.

                              The steel roof will go on top of the pine in early June.

                                I am pushing hard on the interior of the timber frame right now because I need to lay out a good part of my tool collection for the Wellington County Museum... my collection will be there on display between September and November this year. With a house reno going on and me desperately trying to put together the timber frame, I need the space to lay everything out for them to know what they are getting... using 300 square feet to show what will fill 650 square feet. I have to pull it all out of the Shipping Container and then after they're gone, put it all back in.
