Me too Dave. We are in the home stretch now (me and Scout). Got the bathroom trim painting finished this afternoon and the door rehung with new hardware. Also got the corner trim painted and will get it up tomorrow. The ceiling is still bare but have ordered the stuff to finish that out as well. One good day of cleaning up and I will get the inside video done too. Then it's swarf time  :cartwheel:

Bet I can Chris, but will also clean up after myself. It can't be any worse than it was when I began on the inside, but I don't plan on letting it get that bad again ever.

That is quite the transformation Bill, looking forward to seeing you be able to get back to doing some ME projects.

With the exception of a new ceiling ( will pick up those materials today), the bathroom is now finished. This proved to be quite an undertaking as there was a good deal of damage to the old floor, walls, and as usual one thing leads to another. At last I am happy with it though. Clean up in the shop area has begun again also so will try to get a video this week.

Where is the bookshelf? Every workshop room of convenience needs a bookshelf to keep near at hand those references like "How to Run a Lathe" and "Fifty Projects You Can Make from Scrap Metal" to pass the time while  engaged in 'inner contemplation'. Also an old Sears & Roebuck catalog (or Machinery Handbook) just in case vital supplies run short...

 :thinking: Lots of pics of the bathroom but not many of the machine area and none of the model engine casting store  :disappointed:
