    There has finally been some more progress on the new GH. I've picked out the stain and started coating the front. A friend is coming to help wire up the sub panel so I have electricity out at the GH. I had to have some place to put the box so I had to start with some siding.


    I was able to get a good chunk done. All the exposed wood siding is coated. So if it rains we are good. That chaps expenvice at $32 a sheet!!!! But it looks so good compared to just plywood!!!







    I mount sub panel and start running conduit tomorrow. Supposed to pull wire on Sat!!!

    For those still interested. More work was done today. The sub panel box was mounted and conduit run to under house in prep for wire pulling on Sat.





    Sorry for all pics from the same angle. My phone was plugged in.

    Trench dug to the house.



    Conduit glued into place and ready to receive wire.



    More to come tomorrow as I run water pipe.
