Insulating Weaving Shop Storage Area

Before the interior of the weaving shop which houses the Draper loom can be started an attached 15′ x 20′ storage area needs to be completed.  Two walls are now finished and a third insulated today.  The ceiling needs to be put up after the metal is put on the long outside wall (right) and the centre wall is done.  After this then storage units need to be built, items put in, and then the work on the area of the Draper and work tables can begin.  Work on this goes along as the weather is rainy outside…usually at least a few hours early every morning.

Power Loom Shop Pad Excavated

It took all afternoon to excavate and level the rest of the 20′ x 40′ area with the loader on our Kubota B3030.  This will be the shed for our power loom.  This is a 6′ high, 8′ deep, and 20′ long pile of soil that came from that excavation.  The pad is dug deep enough to fill with gravel that will compact to 6″, with a 6″ concrete pad, and 9″ of curtain wall along its edges.
