Iím a chronic builder/property improver. I donít do it for money, I just do it where ever I live. This is my current effort. I plan for it to also be my last. A couple before and after pics - one year from purchase to tamed front yard.

I work full time at a Recycling Facility. My hobby is working on the bus. We camp locally for two weeks and go home for two weeks. We are about to sell the S&B and move to an rv pad on my son's property and go debt free. Hope to get to retire in the next couple of years.

As a full timer, my hobbies have gone smaller. I like to buy old torches to restore and even made one into a lamp. The brass torches polish up real nice.
It's a big step down from restoring 30+ old farm tractors.

Retiring refrigeration tech. Had our own business and are in the process of closing it. S and B was listed today. Lots of repairs and stuff that have been put off. Place looks good. Hopefully will sell soon and then sell the fiver and look at at DSDP. Hopefully.

Still getting service calls. One last night at 2am. Walkin freezer down. $200k worth of product in it. Got it going ok.
I'm getting too old for this. Lol

The latest from Projectland...

68’ of 6”+ slab 24’ wide along the garage. it will have a wall and gate along the front 8’ out from the front of the garage to match the wall around the courtyard (above) but higher - probably 6’ and a solid wood gate for aesthetics. I’m building it to coach but I doubt I’ll ever go over 40’. For now it will be perfect for my new-to-me Ventana and I can park it and my Bay Star side by to swap the solar over. Also will have full hook-ups of course - right rear of the slab.

And of course with lots of work left to go on this project, the DW just announced she wants a nice garden shed. Which is perfectly reasonable given the awesome garden she started this year. With over 20 different types of vegetables are no longer buying produce.So now we have that as well as home grown meats and eggs. I guess dairy is next....?
