Actually I though you were drinking

Waiting on a date for concrete and I will go down there for this
I'm hoping to be done by Feb. Once the building is standing everything will pick up speed since we'll have multiple contractors working at same time.


Next steps:
Concrete
Bulk storage tanks
Building install
Offices
Sprinkler system
Plumbing
Electric & lighting
Equipment

The blade you see on that mixer is 13" diameter. We're putting in one new machine with a 32" blade

Can't wait to see that. I would bet the new shop won't look like a Stalin era manufacturing dungeon either!

How old are you in the first picture? Maybe 6-7? What do you have in your hands? A yo-yo?
