This is working out well, you will be framing in much better weather now. I might come help some now. I can tell you driving to your house in the snow was pushing it, there was no way I was going to help frame when it was really cold and wet. Now, if there are adequate barley pops available, I might be able to make it.

There is always an adequate supply of beer at my place. Pizza and baked goods always flow as well when work is required.

I'm hoping to get this electrical fiasco done by next weekend. At that point I'll hopefully be running all the utilities out to the shop, inspect, cover, move on to the slab. Still might be a month or more before I start framing.

Another problem resolved. Had the new 4/0 cable run from the street to my newly inatalled 320A (400amp) meter box. Ran the new lines to my exisitng service and to the new cut-off that will go to the shop. All done and inspected. I "located" my water line with the trencher.

My old meter was 12" square, my new one is 14" wide by 33" tall. Had to cut a nice hole in the siding but I trimmed it out well. Maybe some pics tonight.

Next: running power, gas, water, network, and anything else I can think of to the shop. Getting close.

Well, that trench I dug several months ago for the utilities has filled in about a foot. I spent the day last Saturday digging that foot of fill back out. I was able to run the power conduit and am ready to run the communications conduit and gas. Just need to finalize the location of my radiant floor heating unit and get approval from the county.

New 4/0 power from the transformer to my house... check.
New 320A meter base installed at the house... check.
New 200A disconnect from the meter installed... check.
Conduit runs started... check.

I'll get some pics soon and post them. Pretty boring work but some interesting stuff here and there.

If it all works out I can have a gathering. I'm hoping... it doesn't need to be "the" gathering.

Doesn't look like I'll have one this year. I'm out of town till the end of the year, and possibly a little more.

I'm in Moses Lake till the middle of May, then I'm off to Palmdale CA till the end of the year. If we have one, I'll try my best to be there. I will get time off, I'll just have to time it.

Gale, I'm working the flight test program on the new 747-8. I'm doing QA. Pretty cool stuff. Long hours and few days off. Been doing this since the beginning of Feb.

The new 320A 400 amp service...

This is before I cleaned up the extra wires. I added the 320A in the middle and the 200A disconnect on the left.



And this is what the HUGE 320A 400 amp service looks like on the outside. I had to cut a rather large hole in the side of my house to get this to fit. Just need to prime and paint the trim.

More progress. I should be framing by the beginning of May. I need to have final inspection before October.

My utilities are all run and I'm ready to cover the trench. The slab area has been excavated and leveled. Now I just need to bring in some gravel, run the tubes for hydronic heating and pour the slab. Hoping to get that done before the end of the month which will set me up perfectly to start framing in May. Be aware, I'll be looking for helpers!

View from my house towards the shop. Power on the left, communications conduit in the center, black tubes are water (duplicate), yellow is natural gas.




Here is my new gas meter and where the communications conduit enters my garage.



Here is where the power terminates. The service panel will be installed just above the loop when the wall goes up.


Septic cleanout, and natural gas stub out.

Here you can see where the water comes in under the footing and stubs out above where the slab will be.


Here is the excavated and leveled dirt before gravel. We just finished this today. I had to remove between 4" and 12" of dirt by hand over the last two days. There will be 4" of gravel, 2" of insulation, 4" of concrete, and 4" of stemwall left above the concrete.


Another view


Looking back towards the house

Lookin' good Darren. I've had two houses to build get put on hold, one indefinitly and the other I'm not sure about, so if the timing is right, I just might show up with hammer and saw and see what kind of damage I can do around there.

Jim.

Looking good. Did you give it a tad bit of slope towards the garage door? Or did you go for a level garage?

I'm going for level... don't really see a need for the slope. My main garage is sloped but there is never enough water to flow out, even when I park my truck covered in snow. It might be nice for when I hose it out but I figure a squeegee broom would suffice. Main reason I don't worry about it is because it is going to be a woodshop primarily and a metalshop secondarily. It is beneficial to have a level floor for that.

I see. Looks like it will be a nice place. One story or 2? Could be very useful to have an upstairs to that shop. I envy your soon to be mancave.

2 stories. About 1,100 sqft in the shop and 950 upstairs. Will have a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and a 20' X 15' open area. Should be pretty nice. Looking forward to having the extra room.

I can't believe your wife went along with this. Now you don't even have to leave your shop to eat or sleep.

Actually it is how I talked her into the shop She gets the upstairs for an exercise room and office. My dad gets it when he comes into town.

I'll have a bathroom in the shop itself and an office as well for browsing the forum and drawing up plans etc...

Getting close to slab time. Just need to insulate on top of the gravel and then tie the PEX to the wire mesh. Should be done this week. I had to spred 15 yards of 5/8- with my step father... that was a full day of work.

Some progress this weekend on the slab prep and hydronic heat. I decided to add one more zone to the system so I spaced the tubing closer together. Placed my order for 300' more of the PEX. Should be ready for pre-slab inspection by Thursday if the PEX arrives as scheduled. I also ligned up some pro's to do the slab finish work. Happy to be relieved of that work.

Heated flooring in the garage? Dang. Your Cobra is spoiled.

That is awesome! I have heard that type of heating is a very efficient way to heat. What do you say when a guy's car has a better home that the guy?

Do you need to worry about rubbing between the pex and the wire? Will there be spacers between the wire and the foam? Are you going to make the slab strong enough for a two post lift?

Just trying to learn so that hopefully some day I'll be able to do something similar.

Looking good!
Nate
