I have not done float tube in a long time. I just learned to cast further from the shore.

Windy today but I managed to get the vapor barrier completed at the front wall..
Installed three windows, cut in installed the soffet and trim at the overhead eave leanto section..
tomorrow my buddy Mark Is coming over to help me install the last roof panel and trim her out... yea buddy....

This thing is going to run me around fourty five- fifty thousand with the concrete pad and the finishing touches... I initially told the wife around fourty five so I'm still good with her...(lol)...

My napkin math puts you at about $12.75 per square foot then. Not too shabby!

I have to imagine getting the slab poured (entire footprint) is going to be the biggest line item, at least by what we're paying here for flat work. Unless you're doing prep yourself I'd guess it to be in the neighborhood of 15k here in the midwest. Your labor rates are probably way lower.

Benefit to doing the work yourself is keeping the cost down. I would say anywhere between 50-80% of construction costs are the labor.

My offer still stands on the table for you Walz.

Yesterday was windy and rainy but I did install the girt at the skirt level on the leanto side and also installed the ledger for the soffet panels...
Today all I did was cut the soffet panels and drive the tractor around for a bit...
Lift is still dead on the up mode and I have a mechanic coming fri or Monday or... to fix it...

Getting a little burned out and need a break......
So I'm driving the 1400 miles down to Bakersfield to camp out for the weekend with a great bunch of people....
The SPEW event.. I really need this and can't wait to see everyone and meet new people..
I have a special build I did a few years ago that I am going to present to someone for all his years of generosity and just being him.... can't wait to see his face..
And I will get a picture....
See you there I hope...
