Extremely busy at the Duke's Horse Stable!  Have picked up a few more Ponies and I was very limited
on space in the Stable and I needed to come up with an answer for storage. So my answer was to finish
the Stable Interior and build a platform so I could stack these tractors double high. This platform would have
to support 2,700 lbs of tractors 6 on top And 6 underneath so I could double my storage in the same footprint
of space. To lift these tractors on the Platform I purchased a scissors hydraulic lift table and had a larger table
top made to support my tractors to Lift them safely up on the platform. There was much work to do before this
all happened, I had to to clean my  1200 sq ft garage in order to get the tractors out of the stable so I would have
room to work in the stable. After that I had a lot of work to do on the stable rebuild, Wiring, insulating, sheeting
with OSB, Painting, Lighting, trim, Platform Build, Shelving, Floor finish, Decorating. Needless to say there was
a lot of work to be done and to be honest with you I have been at it since November every night every weekend
every waking hour it has been quite a project.
