I love those dogs. Super fast and smart as a whip.

We have a pad! Concrete guy is Jerry Solomon and did a phenomenal job getting me a dead flat, super slick finish. It's got two piers buried in a corner for my lift at 8 inches. The rest of the floor is 4 inches thick. They also graded the area for a new lawn and laid all of the gravel for my trailer parking area. First round of inspections went without a hitch. Onward to framing next week.

hahahaha- concrete shoes! Was kind of funny as the inspector that's been assigned to my structure was very confused. He is an older guy with a ton of experience. One of those guys who knows his stuff and doesn't rattle. He asked how I got a building permit without paying the fine to the tree shrew first. I of course couldn't answer that as I'm just going through the motions as directed by the county. Soooooooo......I asked him if he would be willing to sign all three inspections without me paying the shrew. He looked at me over his glasses and said "I could care less what you do with the tree lady. If you build this structure exactly as you told us you would, I'm going to sign you off as completed. "

The shrew may not get that call.

This is my first construction build of any kind and I'm learning quickly that allies inside make all the difference man.

Thanks Josh. We're pretty excited.

I have wood! Truck rolled up last night and delivered the dimensional and the siding materials. The trusses showed up this morning and look excellent.





We also spent the weekend building a small retaining wall. It's lined with water barrier and has a 4 inch perforated drain system under crushed rock behind it. That's some hard work man. No Oak trees were harmed in this process. I'm beat. Framing starts today!
