Oh, and since I'm sharing good news of the day:

We could only watch the live stream from home.
This is a clean facility Ryan could easily compete with Martin J Filiatrault in neatness
Congratulations to your son Jake ! Good job young aviator!

Finally finished my last wing skin rivet (besides tips and body fairing). Now to figure out how to store both wings in my basement shop and start reconfiguring my small adjacent garage shop for the SB body construction, expected to arrive hopefully in May..

Finishing SB wings is a huge milestone! Congrats Jeff! Your project is looking great!

I've been jockeying assemblies trying to free up build space too in my garage for the past 3.5 years. At different times, parts have been placed in the master bedroom, hung up in the home office, on couches, on beds, and stored in upstairs bedrooms, etc., and thus now I know what "home built" really means!

That looks like some excellent work! What a comfortable-looking build space too!

Thanks Ryan, yeah it still hasn't sunk in -such an incredible thing to be doing, building your own plane! It seemed like all the wing skin holes & rivets took forever but eventually it's over. It sure is nice having real airplane parts around the house -going to miss them when I have to take them to a hangar.

Is that an old Honda CBX in the back of the shop I see?

With the lighting in those photos, and the reflective wing, all I could think was Bow-chickee-bow!
