The MO Build has Started
« on: March 29, 2019, 01:10:43 AM »
Today is my last day at work (no more suits) Next week is the drive out to Missouri and the build begins!  This forum has provided a great sounding board and lots of suggestions/ideas!  With all the friends and family asking to be kept up on the build and the transition to "my turn" at living, I promised them I'd post videos of the progress.  I'll try and post them here too so those good ideas can keep flowing!  In case I miss one I'll post the link here, there are already two videos posted showing the plans or as some have put it "something to compare the finished product to".

Congratulations on no more suits.

When will you break ground on the project? I also subscribed to your channel to see the progress.

Thanks! I can't tell you how the thought of no more ties makes me feel! The foundation but arrives the week of 8 April and I've asked that he be done by the end of April - weather permitting. Excited to get started and share the journey. Thanks for subscribing!

I actually know the feeling of no more NOOSE, I mean necktie. I did some of that in my previous life.

Since you mentioned a couple of weeks time frame for the foundation I am assuming its gonna be a block crawl space? I like those since you can get to everything under the house.

/cheers, awaiting your progress vids.

It's going to be poured concrete walls, my foundation guy seem allergic to block.  ;D same concept though 24 in above grade plenty of room to crawl under if I HAVE to.

That will be nice to have a solid foundation.  I can add my voice to the chorus of people who wish that they had done that.

I've got a few people here to thank for the full foundation idea. I got talked out of pillars some time ago and I'm glad.

OK, getting there is some of the battle, right?  I'm packed up and headed to MO!  Road trip ahead and then the next page of "To Do's" starts.  There is an end isn't there?  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQRKBjPZkMNLdccme7CxIWA?view_as=subscriber

You win!!  I will say some of the stuff I moved was for the build.  I purchased all my electric, PEX plumbing, fixtures, wood stove, ceiling fans and lights. Well that's my excuse anyway.

Week Two. Rain made the site unable to get the well truck, shipping container, or the form truck in.  Still made a bit of progress and got the temporary "household set up. Also threw in a orientation of the property.

Week 3! Time flies!  The weather is slowing me down, I still have several large trucks that need to get into the property not to mention the excavator to dig the foundation and concrete trucks to pour it. That means solid, dry ground.  Rain doesn't help.  Oh well I've got nothing but time. I did get the well drilled before last weeks rain. I'm calling that a success!!

About to head to youtube and leave you a like and comment.

Somehow I forgot to post this here.  Week 5 has come and gone with me one step closer to water.

I'm enjoying watching your videos!  Look forward to following your progress, do you plan to do any of the construction yourself or are you hiring most things out?  I see the weather over the next two weeks looks really wet especially in the midwest.  Hope it doesn't impede progress too much.

Take care,
Jason

Jason,  the plan is to do everything but the spray foam insulation myself. You were right about the rainy days, but it looks like the sun may be returning. Still need to backfill and I've been keeping busy emptying the moving trailer into the shipping container. Hopefully the weather holds. Thanks for following along.
