Default The day the framers were finishing up this happened.

[IMG][/IMG]
We had tried digging the lift out with the skid loader nearly all morning.
[IMG][/IMG]
Eventually the lift broke because the starter wire got pushed into the exhaust from the mud and started on fire. That caused a lot of people including myself to move for extinguishers. Luckily we got the batteries disconnected before to much damage was done. By the way the tow truck didn't move the lift at all and drove home with a broken wench. Crane wouldn't hook up to it in fear of pulling it over. We ended up digging it out with a little backhoe and pushing it out with my excavators bulldozer. Don't mention the many inches of rain that fell while it was in the hole. [IMG][/IMG]

This week Thursday we poured the garage floor. I can't wait to use the extra space. [IMG][/IMG]

Thank you for serving our country.
Thank you for sharing all the pics.
You have to be excited!
We built our home in central Missouri in 1993. That was the big flood locally and I got sick and tired of renting sump pumps to keep our footing trench dry.
My point is.., hang in there!

Wow!! Looks like you've had your share of challenges in getting the build this far. Hopefully now that it's dried in and final grade done things will go smoother from here on out.

Looks like a great house on a great lot. Good luck finishing it out. Please keep us posted as it goes along.

Thanks and yes its exciting. I can't deny some stress but for the most part I'm still on the having fun side. The whole reason this started was schooling and now that the kids have started we are 100% right on the change. The school dynamics are much more about success then just completion. I said I wanted a larger garage if I'm moving and this what we ended up with.

Default Rotary SPOA10TRIO discussion

Since we are finally to the point where its relevant to the site I have decided to go with a Rotary 2 post 10,000lbs. I originally was looking at the BendPak but after talking to a local Rotary dealer who had a used one I decided to go that route. Any reason to stay away from Rotary? Something i've never had before. Can't wait to change my oil.

It's looking great... It rains every other day once you decide to build a house.

How long has it been since you broke ground and approximate finish date? I'm right at 8 months on mine and my GC is telling my Sept 30th, but I'm not buying it.
