He continues: "It was built with board and batten construction, using reclaimed lumber that formerly finished my basement. Everything else was found or reclaimed (most of it gathered by bicycle) with the exception of coroplast roof sheets and pressure-treated floor joists. The ornate wooden vent above the door had a former life as the grille over a P.A. speaker." It gets the official Shedworking Thumbs Up.

Well, tomorrow is THE DAY. The bank’s appraiser will be coming by the house to do a walk-through. This will be the second appraisal of the current home and Live/Work Propoert. The number we need to hit is ambitious, BUT the new appraiser agrees that it’s valid to use duplexes as comparables. The reason duplexes are [...]

I’ve been having a hard time finding the time to post this week as I’ve had to actually act like a developer. With ground-breaking on the 100K project approaching and a second project beginning, I’ve had a lot of development duties to tend to. The first bit of good news is that we officially sold our [...]

Leave it to the Japanese to come up with the best way to demo a building. No muss, no fuss. It’s just brilliant. And 20% faster than the old way, which is messy, indeed.
