:D it looks awesome though. Thanks for using Tyvek. I work for DuPont and even though its a different division, if the company as a whole continues to sell product we all stand a chance of keeping our jobs till things pick up.
haha as for the bar yes it has to rain first then bar, you got to get the priorities straight :)

Tyvek is too expensive thats all I can say, this was all done with left overs from other jobs ive done. As for construction around here it hasn't dropped a bit, still full speed ahead....

house is looking good! Its a good change to work on some residencial buldings. I've worked with my dad for many years in construction, but its all commercial buildings. We are starting to build a new cabin and It will be just me and my dad should be fun. Hes gona use huge cedar logs for the basement walls instead of concrete. I didnt know that existed but I guess they work really good.

Love the garage! Are you going to have the driveway extend all the way out to the road or are you going to have gravel between the pad and the street?

the one nice part about taking a one month hiatus is that projects move much faster ha. looks really good, once drywall goes up it seems like game over

Finishing work is the longest part to every job. One mess up there can make all the hours of labor on everything else seem worthless.

Good looking house. Glad I dont do dry wall anymore.

yeah I used to do finish work for my dad, trim work etc. etc Lots of tedious work for sure. And you got to watch out for the painted walls and the new floors. stepn on egg shells wherever you want to work. that and tryn to keep it clean wherever you go.

you usually put rock and sand in the bottom and it drains under the foundation or back in ground around it. the main problem is a bunch of critters getn into them
