Default Attached two stall Garage build

This will be my build thread We might start slow but we will start.
My contractor came by the house Saturday to mark out for excavation. We decided because of my variance we had better get the actual property line to be safe. I only have 2" to be off any closer to the property line and I will need another variance. Which I don't need to deal with.
I got in touch with the surveyor and he informed me this is not in the deal we had so I have to pay for him to put monumentation for the property line and for the as built after construction. It feels like I should be getting a french kiss when someone does this to me. So I hope he can get here early Monday or this will be another hold up.
This may seem small, but not to me. Anyone who has gone through the variance process knows how big this is.

Wayne --

After we got permitted for my shop and driveway and the plans all signed off on --- THEY found the "bridal trail" on my property... and so it was an all stop - and re-do. The surveyor guys use GPS and my shed is less than ONE INCH from that bridal trail! They assured me they could get within about a quarter inch.

Of course 10 years from now -- we'll sell -- and they'll have new fangled equipment which is more accurate - and they'll tell me the shed in 1/2" into the bridal trail! LOL

These things can cause you to pull your hair out - shorten your lifespan - and put bags under your eyes... IF you let it.... so don't let it get to you -- it'll be fine -- they're NEVER on time - things go sideways... it's how you deal with it that counts. In the end -- it will be GREAT.

Default Today was a good day!!

The excavator got to my house at 9:30 this morning. They told me they would be ready for the form contractor to form and pour the footings. I wasn't sure they would make it, but here's the proof.
The first one was from Saturday when they cut the asphalt

The next one are from today




Excavation done by 2:00 ready for forming.


And poured by 4:30




Sorry for the pictures through the screen door.
Tomorrow they will strip the footings and form the walls and maybe pour them.
Were styling now boys!

That has to be exciting! Looks like one hell of a garage across the street too.

Yes there are more behind the house. That woman didn't want me to build my garage . She would never let anyone rent any from her. To try to stop me she offered me one of the garages, until I told her I would have to work on it for quite a while before it was finnished. She never asked again.
