That is a very nice space to call your own. Given that you have a safe up there, I hope you reinforced the floor in that area. I agree that taller walls would have been better, but we all have to accept what space our better halves are willing to give us, and then deal with it.
Thanks all! I really liked my design of an open ceiling. Each end of the room has walls that extend up to the ceiling where I can put the big stuff. The entire floor was overbuilt so I could put the safe anywhere I wanted. Good to know about the UV protection. I hadn't thought about that.
The builders lifted it up through the front window before it was closed up using a small crane and then slid it across the floor using protective pads. But there is a YouTube video of two guys taking one up stairs just using a hand dolly!
Hello Bruce, I think you are still in Africa?? I just sent payment to Bulls Eye Taxidermy to have 3 of my animals mounted, it has been years since I have had anything mounted. I hope Ronnie and Jimmy had a good hunt down Kimberly way. Anyway, so nice to have met you Bruce, it was wonderful meeting you and spending time with you in camp. I hope your store closure and building sale go well. Cheers, Andrew Fike
Just had a yarn with A G, and he has filled me in on how much work he puts in to such developments, referencing QuikLoad, tightening tolerances, load development, range testing. He indicated that of you wish to contact him directly he can go into details far better than I.
If you wish , contact him directly, he has given the OK for me to pass that on.
