    The tractor was needed the barn is be built from true 2 by 6 Douglas fur, and it is much heavier than spruce we could not lift the walls in place so a tractor was purchased to help lift the walls in place.

    That’s the best excuse I’ve ever heard to purchase a tractor :)

    A half inch gap won't let air circulate so make sure the insulation is a full 6" or it will get condensation between it and the exterior covering.

    We are going to use Roxcell insulation and it will be packed in tight in between the 2 by 6 studs and the 2 inches of hard Roxcell will be attached to the outer side structure and then wrapped with a special vapour barrier and then all the seams sealed with Tuck tape.. and finally the metal siding.

    You got that right and it makes for a long building season and we would like to be comfortably.

    The new pavilion at the field is almost done. Just a ridge cap and some gable end trim left.

    They also started prepping for the new Geotex on the North South side runway. So we'll have Geotex on the East West and North South.

    Man, you guys are out doing me! Love the pavilion @Jetpainter and that airplane shop @Snoopy1 !!! I need to build a shed to store all my other stuff that shouldn't be in the house! Maybe this winter I'll sketch up some designs for this summer/spring. You guys are an inspiration!

    Spent some time in the shop and worked on the 3W engine. Well after some careful planing and some precise work managed to get a nice bead of RTV around the Reed holder and not get any of it on the reeds. Now it has to cure for 24 hours and then the reassemble the engine. Then mount it on the test stand and see if it runs properly.
