@Toyotaboy - sorry i never responded. I'm in Washburn county. Just west of Stone Lake a few miles. Did you start yet?Not much else to report here. I'm continuing to follow several build threads and work on my house. I just ordered my second set of plans from John... this time the 1 1/2 story 20x3x (instead of the 2 story). Seems like a good compromise on space and cost. With that compromise I'm deff. thinking of a walk out basement to give more space there for storage and perhaps room for when we have a full house / bunks but not legal bedroom.
I think I've built 6 times in WI. 2 above Solon Springs, outside Medford, near Oconomowoc (Darn forgot how to spell that one), near New Glarus and outside Watertown. Beautiful country, good folks, damndest government I've ever run across. I sent my check in for my contractors license and forgot my signature on one line. They removed and cashed the check and returned the paperwork for me to have another go... new check needed please. I can see alot of the DNR rules, a good bit of the state is sensitive wetland... they can also get mighty carried away at times.Darn, now I want a spotted cow and a friday nite fish fry.
Then before the house was done.leadership in the dnr office changed and when the house was finished they made them tear down the whole house (including the original section) except for ten feet along one wall.
