    Awesome looking floor! You are doing great work, Buck. Do you need such high load rated shelves for anything but ammo?

    I actually won't be using them a lot for ammo, but do have some fairly heavy items to load them with. Might be more than I need, but I am tired of cheap flimsy shelves that
    bow up when I put tool boxes, camping gear, a few boxes of MRE's/can goods, etc, on them. Just got back from looking at an 1,000 gal propane tank. More than I need
    (I wanted a 500 gal), but hard to find this time of year. It is close by and would be easy to move, but he is a little high on it. Make him an offer Monday and see what happens.

    Not great pictures, but got 1st rack put together - 7' long, 24" wide, rated for 2,000 per shelf or 8,000 lbs total. This one will stay in container, but likely will move
    it to back corner. I will buy a 2nd shelf for the corridor where the toilet and water tank are located. BTW the shelf came from Lowe's.

    It is a good pt and something I have thought of. The one in the container is not a problem as the containers have a number of cargo tying pts on the walls and corners and I can strap it to them.
    I will have to think about the 1-2 racks I will put in alley way. Anyway today back to working on last stretch of floor with acid wash and get it ready to epoxy. Once that is done I can start out
    fitting the main open area (in short move in (LOL).

    Put some cheap mattresses on them and you're ready for company.

    LOL, be hard on the head if you sat up in a hurry.

    Negotiated deal on 1,000 gallon propane tank, so need to haul it out here and hook it up in coming week. 200 gal of fuel in it so not going to be lite.
    Things are coming together to get this project finished up.

    Made a bid on some simple center two sided wood (20 gun) rifle racks on ebay. They have similar one sided 10 gun racks I could use for the walls. Trying to get a length on them
    to see how many would fit. Wet damp weather really slowed me up on getting last section of floor dry from acid wash. Hoping I can epoxy it tomorrow and be done with it. BTW
    I am using 2 part epoxy, which you have to mix a hardener in just before use. The stuff is tough and should hold up for many years. There is a couple of spots in the area I
    already done I am going to touch up while I am at it.
