    The ductwork is looking great, Rennie. Seeing the pics is making me restless to get my shop going again. (Still wrestling with the money/space/time/physical ability equation on mine.)

    Only if we can get Rennie to wear a Carhartt sock cap
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    I started putting down the floor today! This is a cheap floor and every piece in the box is the full 48" long and 8" wide, so it goes down very fast.

    The 2x4 frames will support the lower cabinets and help bring them up to a better working height. More on that in a future post. Also, I've found it to be a lot easier to level these frames than individual cabinets. Once the frames are level you just place the cabinets on top and shim/secure them to the wall.

    Flooring update

    I can only spend so much time crawling around on my knees these days. I got quite a bit done in spite of my knees. I also leveled the platform for the cabinets and got them in place. Not attached to the wall yet but that will happen soon. There was a full inch drop in the floor from the center of the floor to the back corner.

    This is really helping to make the space brighter and feel more open. I can also tell that is is way easier on my back. Hard to beat for a total (floor and underlayment) of 70 cents a square foot. Not much more than epoxy and a lot easier IMHO.

    More flooring tomorrow as I head into the more difficult sections working into the closet and office.

    Looking really good. I don't envy your knees and back, though. BTDT, when I did Mida's quilting studio (14 X 42). Could hardly stand up straight for several days afterward. Hot tub, inversion table, and chiropractor helped...

    BTW, you're gonna need a new blade for your saw by the time you're done. The laminate flooring really eats blades - even carbide.

    I do have knee pads and they help a great deal. Also, Jan has been handing me the sections and doing some of the cutting. This saves me from getting up and down so often. Knew about the blade problem. There is a fellow just down the road that does sharpening. Might give him a try when all this is done.
