that thing's one bad mama jama!

Im just say'en because i could never afford an H1.
Cause the hummer is a damn big pig and doesnt fit to well on a lot of the local trails. So I have a YJ and it tends to be great just needs a lot of upgrades. LOL
And that H1 cost less then 40K out the door.

Well . . .

I've been working on building a storage shed this summer. Started in March or April. Still not done. Pretty much sucked up all spare resources and time this spring, summer, and fall, and it looks like it'll go through at least half the winter, too.

More detailed write-up and photos at my website, here.



This was the 3D model I made.




Then worked out all the drawings and details.




Tore down the old shed.




Got the site laid out for the new shed with the strings and batter boards setup.




Then did the excavator work with a rental excavator (freak'n awesome
piece of machinery).




After the footing went in, got the rental formwork all set up for the wall pour.




Stripped the formwork and backfilled the foundation a bit.




Framed up the walls.




Walls sheathed and roof shingled.




Got the small shed building sided. Almost finished with the big shed building.

Oh, and poured a new patio extention when I did the concrete work for the sheds. Last year I built the retaining wall.


Just after the patio was poured.



Patio in use for my son's 2nd b-day party mid-August. I'm really j
azzed at how well it turned out. This spring and summer I wand to
work on finishing off the landscaping around the patio, though.
Been spending all the time on the shed.
