New Projects To Start In Your Metal Building While On Lock Down

Use Your COVID-19 Pandemic Time Wisely

Everyone has been impacted by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. The global economy has ground to a halt and most people in the United States are under a shelter in place order. This means that people are only allowed to go outside for essentials such as groceries and medical care. This has had a profound impact on small businesses and independent contractors; however, just because people are not able to go outside doesn’t mean that time cannot be spent wisely. There are a few great ways that people can put that time spent in social isolation to use.

Metal Roof

Wood Carving

First, this is a great time for people to work on their wood carving skills. There are numerous types of wood carving projects for people of all stages. For example, those who are new to wood carving should think about taking on projects such as:

  • Whistles
  • Kitchen Utensils
  • Beach Bowls

This a great way to not only learn about wood carving but also make something that can be used later. Anyone who is looking for a bigger challenge might want to try something such as:

  • Letter openings
  • Ornaments
  • Chess Pieces

As people get better at wood carving, they can also take on larger projects! 

Build Furniture

Some of the larger projects that people might want to take on include furniture. For example, those who want to continue with their wood carving projects might want to build something such as:

  • Rocking Chairs
  • Dining Room Chairs
  • End Tables
  • Coffee Tables

Of course, people can also build furniture out of other materials as well. Some of the other ideas include:

  • Build a swing out of a piece of rope and an old seat
  • Create new shelving for tight spaces
  • Design storage with a bit of personal flair

Building furniture is a great way to use COVID-19 pandemic time.

Work on Cars or 4 Wheelers 

Furthermore, this is a great time for people who love to work on cars. Even though people might not get much use out of their cars, this is a great time to perform routine maintenance. This might include tire rotations, timing belt changes, brake pad replacements, and oil changes for those who are comfortable doing this on their cars. Furthermore, for those who have always wanted to upgrade their vehicles but couldn’t find the time, now is the opportunity! This is a great time to try out that new spoiler or engine upgrade!

Honey Dos for the Wife

Finally, this is also a great opportunity to carry out some honey-do activities for the wife. This might include painting the exterior trim of the house, fixing a leaky roof, or weatherizing the windows. While many people spend a lot of time and effort trying to get out of these activities, the quarantine and social isolation guidelines provide the perfect opportunity to get this list down to zero!
