    Project "C" Has Begun!

    I've wanted a cabin at my picnic ground at the farm for a long time, but didn't feel right doing anything until the farm was my property. Mom wouldn't have cared what I did out there, but it didn't seem like the thing to do until she passed. I inherited the 140 acre farm, 30 miles from home two years ago. Now that the CRP is seeded, I know I have the money in the farm account to buy the building I want & finish it the way I want it.

    So, today I marked off the spot for a 12 x 24' portable building & used the 790 w/300 loader to clear the sod: Click image for larger version.

    Next is to get a load of base gravel (3/4" & down) hauled out there to set it on. Then order the building, One similar to this: Click image for larger version.

    This will be a bit of a long drawn out project, but I'll keep adding updates!

    Nice setting and good looking building. Me and Jeff Taylor will serve as "special inspectors" to do the required inspections for this project. Do you have one of those go pro cameras to put on every now and then for the record? How soon do you need the C of O?
