    Default Dactel's Build

    Almost done with inventory! Being on the road all the time is not helping but I'm getting there...

    I'm sure someone's already told you this, but my advice is to leave it all in the sub-kit boxes it came in. It makes parts easy to find when you need them.

    Thanks, Brian. Yes I had schemed up all sorts of ways to organize and store the parts but I did realize as I took my inventory that KFA took care of that already!

    I have also been working on my 2 car garage which was only an exterior shell that was built back in 1936, to convert it into a workable shop. Installing insulation, boarding up the interior wall with OSBs, updating the electrical system, etc., etc. Also, before I can dive into building the plane, I will still have to build a shed to reduce the clutter in my 2 car garage.. There is just way too much "stuff" in there... Phew, so much to do!

    I went through similar contortions getting my work space ready.

    Sorting through 25 years of accumulated stuff, didnít know I was a hoarder till then. I have sold several thousand in tools, camping equipment, and some of my archery gear. New air compressor, lighting, shelving, and some tools for the build. Also put up OSB and painted it white to brighten things up.

    Keep bangin away at it. One step at a time. 👍

    Building a shed so that I will be able to pile-shift all the clutter from my garage shop...

    More space for the airplane stuff is a good thing! Keep on charging ahead!
