I only know a few people in the building/Construction business, but they tell me that there are more families then homes.

740 feet of footings set up for a 7am pour. I think we will get rained out though.

Nice!

I have to confess that many times I have thought about my project in the context of what you are doing.

@hashbrown How are you able to get materials? In Iowa you can hardly find lumber and roofing material is like finding a sasquatch. One of my church friends is a roofer, both steel and asphalt. Last fall he and his wife bought 4 suppliers out of their inventory. (They own a lumberyard also, so they have connections.) They're just about the only small contractors around who can keep working continuously now. He is booked over a year out and won't take new jobs. And you have to choose your roof from what he's got in his stockpile.

Your stuff looks great. Keep up the good work...

@Spikedriver I buy so much that the suppliers keep me going. The prices I'm paying for materials are unbelievable and even more unbelievable that people aren't batting an eye about the price of my units. I've raised prices 50 to 70k across the board and have 23 units presold. I don't get whats going on.
Same thing with son in law,he can't build fast enough.But he is having trouble lately with materals,but his is in a large metropolitan area near Atlanta.

Two hours? You were moving. I ran a small factory where we made concrete septic systems. We had a small batch plant where we mixed our concrete. Nothing nearly as impressive as what you pulled off.
