I got only 10-ft done tonight (perimeter is about 110' (24'x48' building with (4) car doors), but chalk that up to getting into the swing of it. Had to wrestle two Buick 455 blocks out of the way (I have 3); next bay has 2 DeSoto Hemi blocks and a bunch of those parts to move. Next bay from that has about (5) Turbo 400s. By 'bay' I mean the space between each vertical structural timber- they're about 7' apart.
Once the shop is sealed up & clean out, it will be a LOT more inviting to me, and I can get back to work on the B-59.
Anyway, I intend to post in here on occasion as to the progress; a log of sorts to keep my motivation up.

Here's a lil' sketch I did of the perimeter issue: the yellow 'board' is what's degrading, the 'curb' goes over top of it, about 1.25" tall & 4" wide, right up against the metal sheathing. Should prove impenetrable.

'Cat door' is out of the question; other, larger guests are only going to get in. It's like living in a freakin zoo here.
After I clean the whole building, it's one matter, but right now there's a few pounds of metal shavings sprinkled over the floor, too.
And I really am not interested in taking care of an animal- it's not my thing.

The barn is way overdue for this sort of attention...

Sweet job on that pour, It will really help you gain a warmer, cleaner and varmit free work zone.
...that and he keeps digging in there, he might even find a Buick!
