Giddy as a school girl, I am!

I got hurt Tuesday at work and suffered through till thursday morning. My reward? Thursday afternoon & Friday of to visit the Chiropractor... an be there for my new favorite erection!!!!!!!

Ok... they're amish, well the boss and his 2 of 10 sons are. I live in the country and... it is a barn... so... anyway. They started @ 9:30 am and knocked off early (3:30 pm) because they couldn't get the concrete til monday, or it would have been turnkey this evening! Epic bearded construction workers FTW! I'll have more finished pics tues when I get back from Wisconsin :doh:

Like a puppy with a hard peter, I am.

Good call! The ultima hombre "Pete" and I talked about that. I live in mixed Amish Menonite country. the Mens drive cars and tractors to work but horse and buggy at home and church. The amish obstain from motorised vehicles. I pointed out the pnuematic hammer and he laughed and said "the genorator is gas but the air compressor is electric so it doesn't count". He showed up in a 6.5 td suburban with someone else driving of course, and the forman (not amish or menonite) drove the 6.7 in the back ground. They heard my 7.3 whistling like a jet when I pulled in after the Chiro and we had a nice discussion about diesels. Though he wont drive he was VERY interested in making his 6.5 better.

We had the mennonite put the frame up on a Aaron's for my work, no safety harnesses, OHSHA drove by and had a fit. Long story short, they wear there harnesses now after a 10,000dollar fine.

what are the dimensions? looks damn good

40 wide 24 deep 13 tall with 15 at the center of the trusses, 10 x 9 wide doors. The whole thing including site leveling, 52tons of gravel and concrete a smidge over $18k. If I could get a do-over i would have went 30 deep to get some room around cclwb trucks but this will work. The windowed 1/2 is going to be office with storage loft above, and a 2 post lift in center bay. No more laying on card board!

Hell yah Joe. Im jealous:D

You said they were waiting on concrete... Is the floor going to be concrete?
The concrete went in this morning @ 9am and we were walking on it @ 3pm! 2% cal/chlor and hot water makes it pop! The trash and garage door pieces you see are laying on it.

That's one fine shop man. Been trying to talk the wife into one just like that. She's hell bent on a pool though. Were still hagling over it. Think I may have to wait for HER truck to break down. Then tell her to just drive it off into her POOl and fix it her self! Oh well , shop looks great man.

Looks great! That's a lot like what I eventually want, but your really going to wish it was 30' - 35' deep!
