We’re ready to pour the floor slab for the workshop. For the Kiwi’s here, the white stuff in the pic is what the rest of the world calls insulation. It’s a good idea. You should get yourself some. That way your house won’t be freezing cold every morning.
Much as I’d like to be bolting machinery down to bedrock, this slab will be 100 mm thick and should prove fairly solid. Milling machine and lathe will go to the left, welding bay at the end, big bench, assorted gubbins and windows to the right.
And today’s scenic view is Te Apiti wind farm, east of Palmerston North. There is now getting on for two hundred and eighty wind turbines above the Manawatu Gorge. Yay for progress.
