    It's finally finished and ready to load up. I already installed the essential gear, and I'll fill the rest of the available space up with firewood, to the extent that it doesn't detract from the primary purpose. I'm sure I'll be improving on the accomodations in certain respects as time goes by, but it's pretty much useable right now. Attached are exterior and interior views taken today. Rick

    Where's the wood and brats Rick?

    Nice addition to your property. I see you can hang out there when the wife is down on you. Hope she lets you in the house once in a while. :)

    Yeah, savage, we were careful to leave generous spacing between both the siding boards and the floor boards. The floor's up off the uneven ground, too, so there's really pretty good ventilation through the thing. Rick

    It's a, uh...multi-purpose structure, you might say. The house? Ha!, not even close. It's gutted...still ripping out and framing...looks like an abandoned building (which it is for right now). Rick

    As to the video, you'll have to talk to my agent, she tells me I'm pretty booked up. As to the famous brats, I think you have me confused with Carl (don't worry, that happens a lot, we're both exceedingly handsome gentlemen). :lol: Rick
