Pole Building

Hello All,
Everybody is asking about our new Pole Building garage. So here are several pictures of the progress this week:

(click on all pictures to enlarge)

They continued getting all the sheeting on the roof, sides and front.

Jim and Ellie Meacham stopped by to look at the progress. Here the roof and one side are covered with the metal.

Here is the back side.

Now the garage door is installed.

OH YES, had to have one of these!!! What ever it's called?? I like it!!
Below is a picture of the Weather Vane we put on top.

Builder's trademark.....Michel's Post Frame,,,,,,,,,,buildings.

Electric is roughed in. 100 amp.

Now the Concrete work begins.....

Hauled in many loads of fill base rock. Leveled and packed it in.

There,,,,all ready to pour next week!! Pat is checking it out!

That's it for this week,,,,a lot accomplished, plus we managed to ship out 4 PressurePro Systems and The DelRosario's stopped by and picked up a full system and Repeater for their New 2008 Phaeton. They are staying up at the beautiful Hart Ranch Resort near Rapid City. Don has been full timing for 14 years! Wow, a year longer than us!!! It was enjoyable meeting this neat couple, who have just been married for 6 months.......CONGRATULATIONs are in order!!!!!

The FISH were all safe this week, we didn't even have a chance to go fishing!!! Ha! We've been hitting it TOO HARD!!! Ms Pat wants a vacation,,,,,,,can you imagine that!! ??? I thought we WERE on vacation!!

We had another WONDERFUL "potluck/BBQ" yesterday afternoon at the Broken Arrow Campground. We had lots of folks attending .... a few that couldn't make it last week...and we lost a couple. Attending this week were: Jim & Ellie, Jim & Donnalyn, Ray & Barb, Larry & LeeAnn, Dick & Lou, Doyle & Feona, Reve & Susan, Larry & Geri (Broken Arrow Campground owners & wonderful hosts), and of course, yours truly....Mike & Pat. Read Ellie's Blog and LeeAnn's Journal for a few pictures and details.

We managed to get our meat cooked and had just finished eating when we were "rudely interrupted" by one of our FAMOUS South Dakota thunderstorms. Sorry we all had to take off in such a hurry but that's a small price to pay for an otherwise beautiful day and lots of fun and fellowship with our friends.

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by. See you next week. Mark and Dale, we'll see you Thursday!!!:-)

Travel safe!!!! But TRAVEL!!!!!

Pat and Mike - Pole building looks great! We've known the DelRosarios for just a short time, Sharon longer than Don. Nice folks!

Sad to say, we aren't completely happy with our PressurePro system. We've had to replace senders too soon, and one is sending a reading for 139 pounds on a tire inflated to about 36 pounds. HOWEVER, we still believe in it, and will eventually get the kinks worked out!
