The "South" isn't for everybody. Throw in family obligations and such and the fact that Michigan is a beautiful state. 98% of it anyway.

Pretty sure I recall 1969sag stating some time back some of his reasons why he lives where he does and why he plans to continue to do so. None of which are really relevant to the core topic of this thread if you think about it. Nor really any of our business or anything he has to justify.

Besides, you get on a rollercoaster, you don't get off until it comes to a full stop.

I have some cars. With a long list of parts on them that if anyone was interested in, they'd ask.

Update!
Yesterday. I meet with Keith the new contractor. He inspected the job site, left me updated and detailed quotes, and we discussed all the details of the foundation work to be done.
He has applied for all the necessary permits. He has discussed this project with the city building inspector.
This time it will be done right. He said if the permits get approved he can start work this week. It will take 2-3 weeks or shorter, depending on weather.
My lawyer has agreed to extend our next court date a few weeks. We will monitor their progress closely. If they default on any part of the settlement my lawyer will get them.
Just a reminder. I am not paying this bill. The new foundation is being paid for by the prior idiots.
The new foundation will be a spread footing poured, and block wall, grouted and water proofed. The inner slab, and outer 20' X 25' apron will be 6" inches thick and have reinforced steel wire mesh.

I am only paying for a few additional things to be done that were not on the original contract or part of repairing the area. I have decided to run water and sewer lines to the garage for future use.

Maybe I will get the garage built this year.

The foundation is the biggest PIA. The actual structure and getting it closed in will only take weeks if it's timed out correctly. 4 walls, premade trusses, roof, sheeting/siding.

A friend just had a 30x40 metal pole building built... 4 days! Done. First day was the poles and structure. Day 2 was finish structure and roof structure. Day 3 and 4 was all the metal work.

It's about time! Can't wait to see pics of it!

just a tip if you know approximately where you are going to install a lift go out and buy #4 bars @ 12" oc ew to place in that 12x12 or so zone of the slab where the lift will be mounted, it wont cost that much, if its a 4 post lift then your area might be larger but not that much. it's cheap strength to add yourself. buy the bar chairs and get the bars centered in your slab, or you can make the chairs with sacrete, dixie cups and rebar tie wire just cast the doubled wire in the cup 3" tall then after it cures cut the cup away and you have two wires sticking out to tie to you bars.

I talked to the new contractor today.
Despite the constant rain this past week. He feels the ground should be dry enough to start on Friday. We will see.

On that note. Can someone tell me how to attach pictures. I forgot and do not use PhotoB anymore. I have an IMGBB account.
Thanks.

I really, really, no, really don't want to pile on here, but a contractor starting a job on Friday will be a first. I continue to wish you well and honestly hope this contractor does as he/she says they will do, but I'm thinking if they start on a Friday, I wouldn't expect to see much done. If they are young and "gung-ho", maybe, but that presents other problems also. Most Companies I see (and people, because they make the Company) are usually trying to finish the job/sliding into the weekend on Fridays.

Good luck...

MANY a time I have "started" a job on a Friday. Starting might involve putting up a job/permit board. Marking a bunch of stuff. Getting some equipment on site. Basically doing everything you can to have the site ready for when the lower paid labor piles in on Monday. The idea being to get the whole place to where the only thing lacking is warm bodies. Thus giving the foreman/supervisor/crew leader a head start on the nullifying at least most of the excuses for why the warm bodies couldn't start actually doing something productive. Those of you who have run a crew of people doing about anything are probably saying "Oh yeah!" while those who have not might not get this.
Though I'm no longer in construction I still do this to some extent in the shop at work. On Fridays and every day.

Congrats, you're an anomaly...If you think this man is expecting a board to be put up on his job site on Friday, maybe you should read the thread...

I don't FEEL like an anomaly. But come to think of it, my mother did once say...ahem, anyway... I've worked for a couple of companies where such planning ahead was the norm. Construction in particular. Though come to think of it, I've managed to avoid working for too many crapbag companies so my view might indeed be skewed.

As for what we should expect on Friday....well, we can always hope. Even though I've read every word of this thread I can. Sag's had more than his share of real world negativity dumped on him already so I try only to add positive input here. (Trying REAL hard to lead by example here.)
