You're going to have a first class shop. I like the use of Omni blocks. I used conventional blocks on mine and I've been happy with them, so the Omni blocks should be a real plus.

Interesting soil, ever had it assayed?

End of 2nd week Friday

Friday and the first two rows of block is in. A special inspector (blue shirt) was called in for the gout /concrete slurry to be poured. He was a former nuclear engineer and ride his motorcycle to all the job site. Each hole had a vibrating hose to get the concrete into all the small area. #5 rebar 2' oc ..





Plumbing will be here Monday morn. to dig the trench for the electrical and water line. We flip flop the bath room so we could save on the ejector pump. Shit would have flow up stream with pump.

Wk 3 day 2

All construction has their faults. The inspector didn't turn up until Monday pushed every thing back until today.

Plumber was here most of the day. The damage that was done in the front of the drive digging a trench for the new water pipe. All my electrics to the street lights have gone black. All the water lines were cut. Even had them marked and still gone.

A new ejector pump put in place. Yes, shit will flow up stream.

Wed plummer hook up

The plummer was by himself today. Laid out 300 ft of 1 inch water line from the main T to the garage. The sewer pipe had to be adjusted for negative flow.






White PVC from the mainline in the street to the house. The blue line feeds the garage.

The inspector will coming by in the morning than we can cover up the lines.
Hopefully we will not need sand to cushion the piping.

Will have pictures of the copper piping in the morning.

If you mind me asking then do not reply.

Roughly what is the cost of building a structure like that? Just the building with finished electrical and plumbing but no tools or benches or shelves or TV's. I am looking for my next house and considering having to build an outbuilding. There is nothing like having a separate space to work in. Close to the house but separate.

cost est.

The cost will be roughly 160K. We could have built it for a little less and use wood or other lesser materials. With matching other structures in the neighborhood .. we had to go a little higher in construction cost.

Electrical bid : $8700
Plumbing : 3600 to run a new line from the main to main house and blue 1 inch line to garage / casita and injector sewer. We found ways around running a new waste line to the septic tank and tied into the existing 3 inch line.

Email me if you need additional info.

Thanks for the info, it is just the ballpark I needed. I have got to say it is more expensive than what I thought by about 2x. Just my ignorance here though.

It looks like it will be really nice!

Are you going to put in any overhead lift capability? I think it would be nice to have a spot where you could back in a PU truck and lift 1000-2000 pounds out of the bed. Not that I have anything in mind but it would be nice to have the capability from the get go, for a shop. More of an engineered lift point to put a chain fall if you wanted one.

The other thing I thought of if I were building from new would be a covered trench in the floor to provide access to the underside of my cars.

Maybe both ideas would not meet the budget axe on my side!

Oh, and don't forget a floor safe poured into the concrete! I think that would be cheap and handy.

lift and hole in floor

yes, we are going with the lift. I can back the pu in between the lift and just lift things off the truck. A mechanic friend of mine told me to always put lifting chains under a load so you back a pickup in and just raise the arms.

It depends in the material. I'm running a full bath and 100amp box. I have it plummed for AC and I have used a higher R factor materials. Plus in the Scottsdale all the crazy inspections are extra ( block inspector for the Omni block)

Neighbors

The next door ASS... neighbor came by today and said you are grading
on my land. That is the marker stake. NO, it is not. That is the building restriction land.

I was grading a fire break in the dirt. It's high fire season here and the wash (on his land hasn't been cleaned out in years) I'm doing all I can to keep my house safe from a fire.

They really should stuff a sock in their mouth before they open it
