    I'm with Rachel and Karl....I do have some sympathy, but it is finite.....And Mike, you know that to get out of a poopty situation is hard, but you can make that decision for yourself regardless of the station you were born into. Big pharma ans scumbag doctors are part of the problem, but at some point, it comes down to personal responsibility as well...Do I feel bad for a second grader in that kind of life? Absolutely! Hopefully that gene pool ends quickly or elevates above it....I am a "tear the band aid off/ sink or swim" kinda guy though...

    Yup, It's Thrusday Already

    In CT we have to do everything (building, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, handicap accessibility, (sprinklers, fire alarm shared with fire marshal)) So it is a little more than "building"...

    Are you opposed to one more post on the open side? 8' openings make for a smaller beam on that side than 12'

    I admit I don't believe I really understand addiction...I have some pretty great times where drugs were involved.....But I guess I never felt the world would take care of me so there was always work the next day to think of...I did date an "addict" at one point and always believed the addiction was a symptom of an untreated mental health issue...

    I am a big fan of Darwin.....Wish we would let him do his job more often.....Bet none of them would cure cancer....Play through...

    Any permits required up there? I assume you donn't want those timbers on the bottom? Must be a prefab shipping thing, but that would omit the concrete piers...

    All sawmill wood or lumber yard stuff? Siding or boards? Just a run in shed? What do you want for roofing? I am sure we can sketch up a post and beam type of thing on some concrete piers that after the concrete was done could be built in about a day (depending on roofing and siding)with a crew of around 5 with just a couple being experienced....

    Think I might take half a day "off" and go up to the new job and see how they do things to see what I can start making easier or better...And se what is in the hopper...

    I understand that planes are more complicated, but pretty sure i could figure out how to drive a car if I knew how to work on one....
