    So I gather this isn't another shed thread?

    You guys don't mess around, Chuck. Nice progress for two days.

    Probably helped that it was back filled already. Around here, that seems to be one of the last things done. Would love to have a house built with those i-joists some day. Looking good!

    I have heard horror stories on those I joists delaminating due to moisture from basements. Evidently you are a believer in them?
    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.

    I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.

    Great job Chuck. I think i could live there quiet easily. No neighbors.
    Johnathan i have those engineered joists in my home. My complaint with them is the glue joint between the real wood making up the top and the osb wafer making up the middle.

    Rich no such thing as to many trees. Just get a smaller hammock.
