120" beams are typically 5" deep and the pair will typically support 2,500 pounds. 4" will be closer to 2,000. I think we'll be good.

So it was recently pointed out to me by a fellow member of the board that I have been lax in posting any new pics of the house now that I have grass growing and a few other projects are moving along. So, for those of you still interested, I will take some shots later today of the latest which includes:
1) Grass growing.
2) Playset for my son also referred to as "Joshland"
3) Basement finishing (drywall is up, sanded and ceilings are textured)
4) Pole building (construction begins tomorrow - Thursday)

Pics will be posted later today or tomorrow.

It is kinda exhausting doing all this posting.....

I've considered doing a House Remodel thread of my own but right now we are in the THICK of getting it complete. Trying to hit graduation in a month! I've uploaded a ton of pics to photobucket but just haven't had any time to make a whole thread on it. I can hardly keep up with the contractors!!

When we built I adopted the attitude that "Sleep was unproductive time" something I am sure you can attest to as all you do is dream about the work you have to get done anyways so might as well be up doing it!!!

Hang in there, it is all worth it in the end.....and no, the projects never end just because you built a new house. I have a list a mile long for the next few months but wouldn't have it any other way!

I would argue that sleep ISN'T unproductive and many times, I have come up with a solution to a problem during a dream.

I charge extra for those.

Seriously- I have done this in many cases and it worked the first time.

Breaking ground on our new house today. I signed up for quite a bit of work to do myself, so it's going to be an interesting summer. The boat will easily fit in my new garage.

April 24, 2014 Update: Grass is growing, basement drywall is done and pole building!

As promised, here are a few new pics:
1) Front and backyard grass is growing in nicely and I may actually get to cut it this weekend.
2) Playset...aka "Joshland" is up and getting a lot of use.
3) Basement drywall is all done. Next up is a little clean-up then on to painting next week. The finished basement consists of an office, full bathroom and a large family room with gas fireplace. So far we have a pool table and air hockey table and this fall the plan is to add a 60 inch TV and surround sound.
5) No pic of the progress but the pole barn did begin as expected this morning and as of this post, all of the holes are drilled and poles are standing. By the end of the day they should have everything framed, trusses in place and ready to put the siding and roof on tomorrow.

Enjoy and I will get pics of pole building later to post.

April 25, 2014 Update: Pole barn is framed after day 1.

Despite a delay caused by the inspector:
They have to inspect the post holes after they are drilled and while the crew was here at 7am to start, the inspector did not arrive until 11am, so the holes were drilled and then they had to wait.

The building was nearly all framed by 4pm and the crew arrived at 7am this morning to get the roof on before the rain starts. Amazingly they said if not for the delay by the inspector, they would have had the roof on yesterday......all of this with a 3 man crew.....the Amish are amazing.

So, here are a few pics and the details of the building:
Size: 30x50
Roof: Metal
Siding: Metal
Front Garage door opening: 20' wide and 11' tall
Rear garage door opening: 8'x8' centered on the gable
Electric: Not yet.
Floor: Eventually concrete.

Enjoy.
