Stopped by yesterday to rout the intake and discharge openings and
developed the beginnings of a case of workshop envy. With the rest of
the south wall in place, it looks a lot better than it did the day

They'd drilled a 1/2" hole through the 5/8" ply wall paneling to mark
vent locations, so all I had to do was insert a 3/8" trim router bit
and follow the outline of the vents in the solar panels.

It was the first time I've ever used a router while standing on a
ladder and didn't feel all that much different from the first time I
took a chainsaw up a ladder.

It's not exactly FWW, but I thought folks might be interested in
seeing a self-heating shop and how it went together.
