      When's the siding going on? They'll have to work around the tank now, shouldn't be a big deal.

        Won’t do any wall punctures until siding goes on. Should have started already...

          There’s a space for it. And a space for the tv on the wall. All in good time!

            Funny, my wife asked where the beer fridge was going to be. She knows me well. In other news, the heater is operational, if not currently needed. If the siding material would go on the walls instead of sitting right in front of the new garage, the boat would be in its new home.

              It's much easier to keep clean and there's less splatter. My buddy installed one in his shop and was really glad he did.

                Interesting but it only serves that one need. Just saying.

                    Heck, I thought it was actually written down somewhere. On an update, the siding guy is supposed to be here tomorrow. Heard that a few times before, though...

                      Last info on siding guy...he says he will be here next Monday. He has about $5000 in materials in my driveway that I’ve not paid for, so I guess he will make it here when his materials bill comes due. Gotta be soon since it’s been sitting there for weeks.

                        I still owe a contractor about $10K eight months later but cannot get him to finish a smaller task than yours.

                      These massive steps are now complete. Drop is probably 20 feet but the attic storage is a clean 300 sq ft.

                        Construction contractors are an interesting bunch.

                        I'm in a middle of arranging for some paving work at my part time job. Out of five that I called, three returned the call, two actually showed up to look at the job, and only one gave an estimate.

                        When our house was being built I heard horror stories about contractors not finishing work and/or not taking care of the punch list items after the final walk through. Our contractor was building 5-6 houses in the neighborhood and had an on-site supervisor in an office trailer. I befriended the supervisor and would occasionally bring him a bottle of his favorite liquor - Jim Beam. As a result, our punch list items were all completed to a high standard within a week of the walk through. In contrast, a neighbor with the same contractor ended up fixing things himself after six months of no action.

                          this guy was pretty good on framing and roofing until his commercial construction season started back up. He’ll be here eventually. In the meantime, a neighbor has offered a place to keep the boat. Rural living is great.
