      Re: Starting Project

      I would love to work on a jobsite like that. Surrounded by woods, clean air and peace and quiet. The concrete jungle has worn me down.

      Looks good but I have a couple of questions:

      This can't be a house or can it? 15' ceiling?

      What the long steel rail for embedded in concrete?

      Nice radiant floor heating..Kitek?

      and where's the wire mesh?

          Ok guys, this was an old job, I was just showing off some pics.

          Yes this is that garage I built and posted in here, some time back. When my computer crashed and I was searching for Windows XP disc, I found a disc w/more pics, so I went ahead and posted.

          There was a lake right there too, just you cannot see it in the pics.

          Beautiful country Minnesota is. Most houses I build are out there in the woods. But I'm done building for this year. Now its the smaller things, siding, roofs, doors and windows, remodels.

          Crack, I didn't do the plumbing, so I really cannot say what brand, I leave that up to the experts.

          Adam, I hate cement work, that is also done by the experts.

          I build or stand around barking orders or scratching my ars.

          Next build I'll try to remember to do a series of pictures during the phases of the build.

              Looks like a "post-tension" slab to me, real common around here with all the earth movement in the area, Clay

              Oh yeah, a bobcat for standing walls is cheating

                Do you guys build walls with bricks like in europe or with drywal like in california? i Know georgia uses drywall,in croatia we use bricks and cement on each floor,if the house burns down,only the windows go bye bye..

                  Drywall, but of course around fire places stones or bricks, and nowadays it seems like the whole wall is done in it, where as in the past, just a few feet away from the fire place had stones or bricks then drywall look beyond the stones....

                  We need to teach you how to take out pics or text from a quote. Its actually pretty simple, then we could teach you multiple quotes and edit in each quotes.

                        You won't see no cigarette in my hands no more.......

                        This boy inhales fresh Minnesota/clean air. I would imagine those smogged cities would pay some serious cash for our clean crisp air... Trying to lay it on thick there, gloating too......
