Spent a few hours today with my son Tyler working on the wood rack, so we could get the trailer loaded with split wood unloaded and stacked. Need the trailer empty for a tractor pic up tomorrow.

Sorry, no pics today. But its coming along great.

Today's work on the covered firewood storage area.

It's almost done, but 50' isn't gonna be enough. It's already 1/2 full and I have at least 6 more cords to split and stack. And no room for any GT attachments. I have enough stainless sheet to do another 20' Tree Wood Landscape Snow Winter
Wood Tree Gas Tent Lumber
Plant Tree Wood Building Road surface

Looking good Ken.. just one question... Do we need to send you grass seed?? lol
My entire back yard needs it, so sure send me. I prefer fescue.

Front looks great, sodded that a few years ago. The reason I have a 6' privacy fence around the back, is so that no one can see just how bad it is, plus it hides my collection of goodies.

The pictures are great. What are you going to do with all that work surface over the firewood?
"Work surface" ? Me no understand ?

If your asking about the roof, it's all going to be covered with 4' x 10' 18 gauge SS sheet metal, seems will be overlapped 2" and sealed with silicone caulk. And some sort of flashing hanging over the front, after I can get to my siding brake that is hanging off the 12' garage ceiling.

The roof is just C clamped down for now, I do have roof screws once I'm ready to attach it For good.

The white stuff on some of the sheets is the protective plastic that comes on it new, and it's been on so long, it doesn't come off real easy. But because of my "OCD" I'll get it off. It looks like crap that way. Rite Scott ? : )

Similar to the protective film on sheets of aluminum? We would get rolls of that for building fish houses, it would be old and tough to get off. Heat gun and paint thinner is what we used.
I'm not sure if its the same stuff. But we've used a heat gun to warm it up and it makes it pull off much easier. All the SS restaurant equipment we install comes in covered with that plastic film.

The stuff I'm using has been around and sun baked for as many as 8 years. It's the same stuff I used on my trailer. I tried heat, paint thinner, lacquer thinner, pressure washer and even paint remover and nothing took it all off.
It drove me nuts on the trailer, what finally worked was WD-40 and a razor blade. The WD just made the razor slide without scratching.

Whatever they attach that plastic with, is some tough stuff.

BTW, what is a "Fish House" ?
