Tahoe: It's a shame your not closer.  I have two 5 step risers(3 per) that I took off the back porch and deck when I tore the house down last month. They sure would have made forms easily You could have formed 15 steps at a time. . I'm going to sell them, but it's a long drive to Ohio.

yeah, that stinks, probably would've worked great. It will be a next summer project most likely, mom is pusihng for my family to move in with her and take over, but tons of work more important to be able to move in than the steps.

Yeah, slowly but surely. I hope to have the roofing on before the baby comes!! And yeah, that is just a small utility trailer that I've been using for saw horses. As soon as I'm finished with the scaffolding it'll be going back to my folks place.

LOL, thanks buddy! Actually, the plow day is how I am kicking off a weeks vacation! Then Sunday will be unpack/repack day and Monday morning I've leaving out to go on a week long wheeling trip in TN! Yeah, I know good timing with a wife that is 34 weeks pregnant! Her and the girls will be joining me later in the week though so it's all good.

I'm finally getting back to work on this. Started the purlins to night. I'm using 5/4's deck boards. They came with the posts and rafters and there is enough to do the whole roof (maybe minus a board or two). I ended up getting two of 18 rows done tonight. I hope to finish them this week and order steel Thursday or Friday. I'll also try to get some pictures tomorrow night.

 

This dark at 7:30 stuff doesn't allow much work to get finished.

One half of the purlins are finished... it was DARK when I quite so no pic's again tonight. It's looking like I will quite a bit more 5/4's board than I will need. That's a good thing when building on my budget!

Looks about the same as it did when I was there a month ago lol. I need to build one. I've got a barn I need to strip down before it falls completely to the ground. There should be enough lumber, metal roof, and siding to get a decent sized building. I'd like to have something for storage so I can use my shop to actually work on stuff without having to move 47 things. Your progress is coming along nicely

Yup, progress is slow but it should pick up quite a bit. Some paint and tin will really change the looks! Considering I've only got about $500 in it so for I think I'm doing pretty good on budget.

Great job on the budget! I'm accumulating materials for my barn, got the poles and some framing so far, I'm out an old router and a bunch of time. The rest will be more expensive, I'm running out of time to make trade deals.

Yeah I looked a long time for a good deal on some reclaimed lumber. Oh and go to Lowes at opening time every morning. get busted/rebagged quikrete for $1/bag instead of $4/bag!

Now that will save me 20-30 dollars alone, thanks!
