I had plans to enclose the "Old Carport" and convert it into a Shop/Garage, but a building contractor got me for $600.00 in materials&labor. So, I do "All construction" on this cottage from now till I die!

A contractor gave me a bid "Labor Only", to Carport a 24x30' sq. ft. up to code is $3,556.00 Mein Gott I am truly saving money doing this myself. The savings will allow for a Garage instead of a Carport structure.

I've begun again! 3 holes dug 2 3/4 ft deep for 4x4 post cemented into the ground, concrete and post bought and placed in holes and cemented into ground. I did the transport in a 98 Mercury Villager.Lol. I have an early Christmas present for my Custom Car Concepts business. It's a 2013 F-150 ecoboost 3.5 L pickup with 3.31:1 gear. Yes I will build it up some, it came with a "Roll & Lock" bed cover in great condition at 86,500 miles. Now I can finish my new Garage/ carport/back porch remodel this coming Spring! Hauling ass & materials! Yes this is taking me a long time but is Free! I was a remodeling contractor in the early 80's.

Projects blend together as the garage & patio are designed, also I have a new "Old People's Bath" remodel I had done by two guy in three days! I am working so much to pay bills I have zero time for events or any other fun activities.
