More updates with the termite battle

A couple of weekends have passed and more work has been accomplished in getting the wood shop back together.

To start with I ended up with termites now in the machine shop and wood storage room.

This tube was in the clean room.


And the second door to the machine shop.

What this means is that more holes had to be drilled.

IMG_6362sTo do this of course everything had to be moved once more.

First the tool boxes and semi portable equipment.IMG_6363s

Then all the bigger wood working equipment.


But my all time favorite was the surface plate.

The wood shop extension has now been sheet rocked and taped and mud on all the joints.



The pocket door for the well and pressure pump room has been installed.

    Have you considered the container?
    It takes time and effort to see your battle with termites.
    There are almost no good results.
    Have you considered buying a used container into a laboratory?
    You need to deal with the foundation well, maybe you live on a termite nest。
    good luck!

      It has been a battle with the termites, I am hoping that we are finally turning the tide. I have containers for part storage but the shop is already built.
