  • Well basement is done and the basement walls are shored up waiting for the setting of our house.
    So, Wednesday a huge crane was dropped off at our place for the setting of the new house on Thursday only to have the weather turn real bad , So...........They pulled the crane out ! they're shooting for next Tuesday !!
    Was really bummed watching that crane drive away.
    Lets hope for Tuesday!!

  • I like the supervisors chair sitting close by.
    Curious....No Bulk Head or walk out basement door cutout??? Without one, kinda hard to get furnace, oil tank, etc. and other stuff in the basement.

  • No, there won't be enough $$$ left
    over for demolision of the old
    house, as it is now we'll be in the hole for several grand and we still need to get furniture and a furnace and I'll have to install thay as well.
    One step at a time.

  • Looks great! Hoping for Tuesday? Me too. We are selling 3 acres on Tuesday for a nice tidy sum to put in the bank. We have been fighting government since last spring to get this done (Michigan, County, Township).

  • 40 years ago we built an earth sheltered home. As some may recall fuel prices were out of sight. I used a Fisher stove and had a wood floor with a crawl space and circulated air through the crawl space. Daughter lives in it now. Sometimes here in Western TN the temp will get to zero and on occasion lower. Most wood I ever used was 2 cords. I could cool the house with a 110 window ac except on the most brutal 100 degree days. We have heavy clay here and I must say I learned a lot about how to seal the walls.
