    Building a new shop with attached house - Done.

    Don't know if this realy belongs here since I not doing the work but that OK it does show construction from the groudn up.

    We signed the contract Sept 6th and they said it would be 3-4 weeks since they needed to pull pirmits. I guess the building slow down is helping, maybe that will mean that the rest of the construction may go faster then there estimated 4-5 months. The house is 3000 sq.ft with a 3 car attached garage that will serve as a shop until I can get the funds together to build the seperate shop. it is all on one level. Here is the plot plan.

    Don, it looks to me like those are the footings for the house and not the shop. Am I correct?

    That is correct, the shop will have to wait for more funding since LOML is spending the budget decorating the house. I'll use 2/3 of the 3 car garage for the shop until the funds become available.

    Don, where are you building? If I recall correctly you are in AZ and I used to live in Scottsdale until Dec '05. Looks like a nice spread but you might miss the trees. Did they clear cut or is this a planned community?

    Looks good Don,
    And sure a lot more builder friendly site then the house I helped build on Black Mountain, where me and my Mexican brother took first picks, then sledge hammer and bar to dig footings in caleche where the backhoe could not go.

    Next they'll fill in the trenches and level the sub slab and then pour the slab. I took a lot more detailed shots in case I need them later but I won't bore you with picture of a bunch on pipes.
