Didn't realize how long since I updated this.
" />

4,000 psi mix, low w/c ratio, super-P additive for flow, two shots of retarder for hot weather.
43 yards total.

One rider with pans the other with blades.



Pond cured for just over a day, then floor cracked and couldn't keep water on it so covered with plastic at that point.



My 400A power supply. 200 for living quarters and 200 for shop.


17' of siding up, going to have to rent a man lift to finish. Called 5 or so siding contractors and none showed.
This is the uphill side away from the road, building runs east/west. South facing metal roof is white and road side is colored.

Road side of house.

Getting some drywall up on partition. Plastic is under the drywall so spray foam will not stick to drywall so panels can be changed easy if they get damaged in the shop.

Sealing up the home with 2" of closed cell spray foam on exterior walls, 3" on roof deck and 1-1.5" on shop partition wall. Going to cost $7,000. Then I can do wiring rough in and add either closed cell, cellulose or some other sound deadening insulation.

Very nice. I was wondering how you were doing on the build.

The old camper was replaced with a slightly newer one that has two slides. Bedroom and 13' super slide for dining/living room.

Spent too much time fixing issues from the framer.
I'll try and upload more interior pics. Used 16" tall manufactured floor trusses capped with 3/4" advantech decking screwed and glued with their new urethane foaming adhesive. Had to order it out of state because it wasn't rolled out nationwide yet.

Found a used Dupont storm room only 5 miles away. FEMA rated, SIP walls with Kevlar reinforcement. Less than 1/2 price of new and we were able to disassemble it.

Thinking about a 40' shipping container for storage next.

Planning on building a below ground reinforced concrete bedroom in my next house. Lots of people killed at night in their sleep unaware a storm is approaching.

My "dream" retirement home is 12-1400 sq.ft., full 8'+ poured wall basement, attached 2 car garage, single roof pitch. Large detached shop.

Maybe my next one.

Sweet progress. When is your projected completion date?

Looks great, I'm jealous.

Any idea why none of the siding guys showed?

My guess is they don't want to do the hard work because setting up pump jacks that high will be difficult going that high while the pay is not worth it to them. I had a similar thing on my house, I went up as high as I could but ended up paying my brother to finish the high peaks. He would have done it for free but it took him away from other paying jobs so I insisted on paying him.

No time frame, cash flowing as I go so far.

Siding people were called before I even started. Told them over the phone how tall it is and they still set appointments but didn't show or even call back.

Having issues with spray foam now.

I really like the idea of spray foam, but having helped someone build a tiny house and seeing his foam shrink and crack makes me think it's not quite perfected yet. I'd probably still use it though, just go back and fill in. What I don't like is the low insulating qualities of studs, look at a house on a cold frosty morning and you can pick out every stud by the frost melting as heat radiates through the walls. Means about 10% of walls uninsulated.

Yeah, I've seen studs through siding before. There is 1/4" foil faced fan fold insulation under the siding. Main reason was it helps the siding lay better but also gives a thermal break too.

We didn't see our closed cell foam shrink back in Wisconsin. Going with closed cell here too.

They will call when work slows down, then they have all the time in the world for you. They shouldn't set up appointments and not show or call.

When they call you should give them the address and ask to stop by and ask what they think. Just let take their time to come out and see it all done and their services no longer needed.

We would like to get the occupancy permit by December.
The next big thing is the HVAC system.
Have several estimates on a standard split system and now getting some on ductless mini-splits.
