We are so thankful we finally sold our house this past October. We had various back-up plans for where we would live while we get a house built. The sale went through so late in the year we aren't able to get the house until next summer. We knew all along we would be building a shop first. The plan was to get the shop built and live in it until we had a house. Little did we know building a shop is no easy task if you are not a builder. Do we hire it out or ask for help from friends and family who do have the experience? We got some bids from several contractors and decided to go with the friends and family route. My Dad has the experience and the equipment and he was willing to take charge. He got here in October from his job in New Mexico. Since then a lot has been done but a little at a time with whatever help we can scrounge up. It is no where near ready for living in. Our temporary home here was only until winter hit. This week winter hit hard. We have been cold and drifted in out here in the country so it is time to move out. We are moving to Union to live in mom and dad's abandoned house for a little while.
Work will continue on the shop as the weather allows.
