What I consider “major construction” of the obs is now complete. Still lots left to do, but it all falls in the category of “finish work” or ‘electrical/electronics”.
A roof was framed up w/ 2×3, 2×4, and 2×6 lumber
Rolling hardware was added (man was that thing a bitch to flip upside down!)
Corrugated PVC roofing was added, and she was ready to install!
(Sorry…no pictures of the circus that was me, Alex, and 3 friends lifting that SOB up onto the building!)
Ordered the drive mechanism from McMaster-Carr, and rigged up the controller box…(Details and more info, along with links to parts, code, etc, are in the video description of the video linked below)
A few days of tweaking, adjusting, and fiddling…and behold!
Finally, this weekend, got around to making the door, and hanging it.
