    ok all finally an update



    as you can se here there was nothing to attach the walls two for about 2 feet so i added a 2x4 i planed down to give me something to screw it too.


    I used this to attach it to the building so i could put bolts through on the other side ant i wouldnt keep falling down and be cock eyed it worked amazingly i dont know how well it would hold under stress but it held up great . for my needs .

    im kind of jumping all over the place i got all of it insulated and i cut my time down by over half i cut a peice of paneling down to the size i needed in the walls .

    A peice of 1\4 to cut the recessed parts in between i finished in about an hour that was taking forever only wish i had thought of this long ago.



    This is how im going to do the braces for the back wall.

    I was going to dot he sides the same way but they neeeded extra bracing i thoguht running the wood this way would help more plus it is a lot longer than any 1x4 s i have .


    This was a christmas present form my ife that helped me a lot




    I used this tool to drive the screws in throught he oak and into the metal i used drywall screws made to go into metal studs that selfdrill




    What keeps me going and my sugar from bottoming out i tend to work non stop when im working on something and for get to eat .



    i took some scrap paneling fom the celing and finished the front wall it will have pegboard over it anyway
    so it didnt have to be perfect .




    Since those boards are 10 to 12 feet oak they eould be pretty hard to hold up and put a screw in at the same time so i would put a couple in spaced out close to where i needed them then rest the boards on the





    this is what i ended up with .






    then i did some work outside on a couple of spots i was tempted to try to get the old taillights from the bed working but were in bad shape i didnt really have the money for new ones .


    first i cut some patches from crap sheetmetal .


    Then i used some more of the griplock stuff.



    then i went with the window flashing .


    after some of the roof patch tar like stuff i but the reinforcement mesh and more tar

    i did that on all the sides that needed it .
    all comments welcome .hoprfully i am making ground if noting happens iwill start onthe walls and floor soon.

    This thing is really coming along! I love that Loctite Powergrab glue, excellent stuff. Puts Liquid Nails to shame.

    Just stumbled on this today, simply awesome. Wish I had somewhere to put a container to do this in. I live in a trailer court tho so..... no room and no way the landlord would allow it. Great ideas tho. +rep for recycling, reusing and making do with what ya got . I'm still so jealous.

    wow this thread rocks!! makes me want to start building a simple shed that I could use. but I really REALLY want to build an actual shop, with a pit for some mechanikin. that would be sweet. alas, money restraints. I dig the old box truck idea, would be sweet to make a mobile modshop/mancave! I used to deliver furniture and when we would go on 4+ hour road trips I always wanted to bring a generator or ac converter and set up a tv / fridge in the back of our del. truck! + rep for sure!
