Not what I would typically consider a house, but hopefully you are saving up for some walls and a roof.

Nice!!! I gotta ask, how much for the work? I got a quote for a 2000 sq ft pad for my yard, ludicrous price too.

My house is nearby out of the pictures. This will be my garage.

The pumping rig is sitting on what will be a 50' driveway/basketball court and of course there are large footings all around, and this is 5" of 3000psi, the concrete will total close to 30.

That will look nice! I was quoted $25k to excavate and pour a 2000 sq foot pad. I'll be doing my own excavation and land prep now.

Very nice. Can't wait to see the finished product. How many vehicles will that thing hold?

You going with a pre-fab steel building?


Forgive me if I missed a thread with details about the build...

Rent a skid-steer and buy a laser level and get to work! Pays about $500/hr.

Should have put it at the far end of your property, then a nice concrete slab for full throttle burn outs to the road.
