    My new cabin.. Spare time project/ full time project.

    The new house. Started in sept 2015. Last pic of sheeting on the roof was taken today.
    The hole was dug with a mini excavator loosening up the dirt and the skid steer carried it away. It took a couple of weeks to do.



    Just finished the concrete floor pour and it rained an inch.



    Some of the 55 inches of snow I shovelled out of the house.



    The case is a great machine.

    The windows went in before the wall was stood up. 400lb window(man & wife) insert and winch the wall up.

    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.
    There is no place in an anti's head where reason can enter. from a Napoleon saying with a tweak.
    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because thatís the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    Hoping to get the membrane on the roof to get less rain coming inside. Just the betterhalf and I doing the build. Having fun with this one. It will be my 5th house build. I am also the electrician and the plumber.

    So... do you install pipes that are in the way when you do the electrical, you know, for authenticity?

    Or perhaps hack away at structure to run pipes?

    Seriously, that plywood looks like it is lining up nice and square - good show.

    Electricians are so whiny.... Maybe if you guys shortened your coffee breaks a couple hours a day you could be in the walls first.

    I'll take a picture tomorrow.
    It sits on the spacer and the sheeting edge and has 4 - 3 1/4 nails holding it to the 2x6 and 3 more to the brace. It held 300+ pounds.
