Day 6.5... 2 man crew. The Morton work is done. The concrete is scheduled for next week followed by the electrical and garage door. I can't wait to "move in".

That will work. Plenty of room to move whatever you want through the door. That is a wide door for sure.

I've pointed out the most obvious identical features. If you look closely, you can easily identify at least 12 identical features in these images. It's like one of those "What's different?" puzzles they used to put in the Sunday papers.
I think they were comparing these pictures of this house to the house in the you tube link back on post 589 or some where in that area. Looking at the you-tube link will make sense of what's said!

Ha ha, makes sense. I read the comments and was like; "but they are the same house"

Wow-

Morton and Home

It has taken a bit of work but the Morton is now finished except final grading and landscaping. It has been worth the wait. The process included tree clearing for the building and road. When I think back to the amount of work it took I believe it was worth placing the building in the current location.

Looks really nice! You have a nice piece of property there too!

Pictures of MH garages

No major progress today. The building looks the same except the big pile of gravel is now spread out in the building and under the porch. That happened this morning, followed by the termite treatment. (Side note: I also got a good deal on treatment of the house and existing garage while they were out, and have that scheduled for next Monday).

The concrete is scheduled to be poured tomorrow morning. The electrical is scheduled for next Monday. The garage door is scheduled for next Wednesday or Thursday.

Since I have shared pictures of the shop with no reference (and since nothing much has changed since the last update), I'll show a picture from the deck. Please disregard the bare spots in front of the pool. I have worked for 4 years to get grass (or weeds) in that area and it just never works out. You can barely see the shop through the Penn Oak tree and the Bradford Pears.

Fortunately, we have access via my neighbors driveway as long as we both live here but also have an undesirable option of accessing the building by going from our upper driveway and around the left side of the pool. My plans for next year are to tear down the brick retaining wall at our basement / lower driveway and install my own entrance (just in case he moves and the new neighbors aren't as friendly).

Finally, someone that may do as much mowing as I do.

Hard to tell from the picture, but this has been the scene all morning.... Concrete trucks rolling in delivering 30 yards.

Here is ours. 60'x96' with heated floor and full RV hookup. I don't think I have shared it here before. It serves two purposes our business and Motorhome storage.

I enjoy the peace when cutting the yard. With my radio head set ear protectors it gives me 2 hours of "quiet" time! lol My Scag Cheetah is an awesome cutting machine!
