You probably know how many times I’ve mentioned our Metal Building. Or our lack of Metal Building. We bought the building back in early October from Diamond Pole Builders in Delaware. And truly, they have been great. But because of permits, and surveys, and soil testing and planting plans, oh and yeah, the weather, our building has been delayed many, many months. But now, we have a Metal Building.
I know it may seem a little crazy to keep talking about this, after all it is only a metal building. Practically everyone down this way has one. And all it will do is house the “toys”, the boats, the tractor, the ATV, etc. But to us it represents progress. Moving forward with our plans. We will move stuff from the garage to this metal building, and then we can move the bins and boxes we’ve packed up here in New Jersey to the garage down there.
After we move the bins and boxes from our garage and living room, we can proceed with fixing up this house to get it ready to sell. We’ve done quite a bit so far, but we need to fix up the garage, redo some sheet rock and paint it, and paint the outside of the house.
So finally, now we can start working again. We originally thought we’d be able to move down there in May while we put this house up for sale. How naive we were! Everything has taken much longer than we thought, especially the permit process!
The company, Diamond Pole Builders, uses the Amish to build their buildings. And they are working machines!
And by Friday night, March 28th our building was done!
So now, back to work. We are ready to move forward. And our two thoughts, exactly how long is it going to take to get the permits and soil testing and survey when we want to start the house? And can we get the Amish to build it? They were amazing!
