Does this officially make it a shop?

Just finished a overhaul on my BIL's 2388 engine. Dropped a valve, wrecked the head, took the Piston and sleeve.  He pulled out the retired 6620 to keep plugging along on the beans. Going to see what the weather is going to do for the rest of the week, don't want to stop to put the engine back in if the weather is going to crap this  weekend. Did the overhaul in the shop dad had built last winter. Now if I can get him to keep it a shop not a machine shed! And a pic of a long overdue project, I hope to work on this winter.

Narrower wheel base on the BN. B is wider

Not a farm shop until you have a dog or cat in it. Better yet, dog or cat prints in the wet cement after you just poured it!

We got a new head from Abeline Machine.  The old one could maybe be repaired but with time against us we went with a new.  The shop is less than a year old dad tends to fill it full of misc. equipment. He seems happiest when you can't walk form one side of the building to the other.  The dog is sleeping in the house  too many cats to count.
