You know once the stuff is put in "temporary" is grows roots to be permanent.

Agree 100%. And never sit stuff on front fenders or deck plates either.

LOL!!

My 2 dr hot rod is a great workbench!!  With that big, flat trunk lid it gets piled with lots of stuff.  Then it all gets moved to somewhere else when I want to drive the car.  Ugh...I need a bigger garage LMAO!!!

The Mack isn't far behind, as stuff gets piled on the back of it randomly.   Again, all has to be moved when I need to get the truck out.

years ago i hadda 49 ford,,,,and at one point i had so much shit stacked on it,,,you could even tell there was a car under all that stuff...bob

Got 1 row of  9.  1500 lumen can lights wired up.   I think when the other three are wired in I should have more then enough light .

I plan additional bracing to the sides.  It is a yellow pine 2x6 right now and will have a 2x6 brace v ‘d off each side.  The sides mounts near the wall will just go horizontal to the rafter above with a 2x6   But can you sketch out what you described.🤔

 

One more row of lights wired in only two more to go.

Needs a diagonal brace so it can't sway. If it sways while a door is up, it will drop the door on your head. If that 2x6 were run past the collar tie and attached also to the ridge beam that would suffice without cutting into ceiling work height.

It's nice to leave as much working height as possible, never know when you'll have a dump truck in there and need to put the body up to access the chassis. If you have diagonal braces there that could impede your ability to do so.

Had my brother and dad out to help put up the back peak section after thanksgiving dinner.  

Much better now that it isn’t a wind tunnel anymore.

It's amazing how quick all those drafts go away when you plug up the holes. Same thing when I built my barn that top section is the worst to get up there and sealed. If a good dinner is all it took to get a little work out them you got off cheap.

When you going to start working on stuff and not on the building or is this side just for storage?
