Awesome man. I hope someday I can build something at least half as cool.

Used a 6 cell maglight on mine. When the sheriff showed up and took statements he asked if I wanted to press charges. I guess I was within my rights.

Wk 4 Monday

Day started early, the electricians were here to run the conduit.

They were pissy about digging up the ground to lay the conduit.

Inspector came by and ok everything. Concrete floor to be poured in the morning. The termite treatment (got me concrete and block ) is required before the pour.

Sparky will be back in a few days to run a line to the injector pump and we should have a six foot wall by Friday.

Made a field change in the morning. We are adding a 3 x 4 window with the idea of building the deck from the second floor to the tree house. Will take pics later,












I have asked my contractor to provide me with the PLANS IN JPEG form. Open to anyone who would like to view or copy.

^I've been following your progress, and you've got a very nice build going.

I was going to ask about keeping the concrete wet - especially considering where you are. When I built my garage in a hot New England July, the concrete guy put plastic over it for about 48 hours.

Looking good!
