We Have A Kiln Shed!!


Our kiln shed was scheduled to be delivered today. The weather forecast predicted a slight chance of snow flurries. We were so afraid our delivery would be delayed. Let's face it, here in North Carolina, the mere mention of a snow flake and business comes to a halt. 




But that was not the case. Shortly after 7 am the truck arrived.


Two men, in 27 degree weather, got the job done by 9 am!

Jeff and I researched our options for a kiln shed. We could have built a stick frame shed with a metal roof, but the materials alone were more expensive than purchasing a steel frame carport and having it installed. It would have taken days for us to get a shed built... this was up in 2 hours. Later, as money allows, we will put side walls up on a portion of the shed. 

Let the kiln building begin!!!!!

    1. The posts are 6' the center ridge is abut 7'. Jeff will cut a hole in the roof for the chimney. It's completely metal so there is no concern about clearance.

    1. Building materials are so expensive right now. I think that this was at least $500 less and we only had to watch.
