    Shack on LHS is full with about 70 ton of salt, needed more room so...........emailed coverall got no response. Got blocks and lumber and 3 farm boys. That nice empty corner was full of trailers, tires,shelving etc, time to build.

    It must have been a pain in the a$$ to get those mud sills down and the leveling sills level. It's hard enough to do it on a concrete footing. Looks good so far. Keep teh pictures coming.

    Day 3

    Creative told me a big storm was coming Sun. night so we didn't work on the w/e. After staying up late counting raindrops and waiting for nothing, we got a late start today.
    See how cell phones have made life better........1 call = 2 not working.

    Are we really going to be that picky, as it seams like its not a 911 crisis if he is talking on the phone. After all, if you go by that theory toss the camera in the dumpster and get working.

    Looks like a nice project!!! Hope it turns out the way you wanted!:drinkup:

    What does one of those fabric/steel shelters bolted right down on top of your concrete block run? It seem like it would be a lot less time and material. IMO

    mid ohio- it seems you missed his second sentence in the original post.
    "emailed coverall got no response"

    I think a coverall was his first intention.... but when you need a shed, you can wait around for coverall to get back to you.
