Why the need for walls?
Of course there's a need for a bedroom and kitchen, where else do you expect the cat to eat and sleep?
Paint is done!!! Inside and out!!
Next up is flooring then electrical trim... but then final electrical inspection which will take AGES to happen
But still - nice to see a cohesive look at last!
Wow, home sweet home.
My feelings are hurt (almost). I thought you were going to use my pink paint.
Only kidding, Dave. Kudos to the excellent progress.

Got an antenna or two? (At least, THEY survived!)
I know, jealousy will get us nowhere. Glad you are able to recover so quickly, and it looks like a real "dream" setup. Hope you can get back on the air soon.
ADDED: BTW, what antennas are up there?
Good morning Larry!
On the 65' tower is a Mosley TA-33MW (3-elements on 10-15-20 and dipole on 12-17) and above that 6 elements 20' boom 6m Cushcraft. The roof tower has my old 6m 5-element beam, 9-element m2 2m beam on the bottom (horizontal for CW/SSB) and a Diamond 2m beam on top for FM repeaters).
The "big tower" went live only about 3 weeks before the fire!! It was only ever rotated maybe 20 times before it all shut down. But I've since acquired a new controller (old one died of course) and thankfully, no bad mojo "went up the wire" to ruin the motor (thank goodness!) - it turns just as it should. The roof tower took no damage at all either, other than its controller also burning up in the fire.
Wow. All I can say is WOW! (I can't even DREAM of such a set up. Glad you can actually DO it!)
I take it insurance paid out without problem?
Man you lucky.
