Well, it's happened. the guys finally showed up for ground breaking.

The whole thing is a crazy fiasco of random acts.

Filed for the building permit last year and the building inspector never processed it..

2019 the process is totally different having to be done online. So all the work I did last year to get it done was for naught.

Here are some pictures so far.

The trees had a few dead sections so I asked the guy putting in a septic next door to come over and dump the trees over with the excavator. It worked great but cost me 500.00 for a broken windshield and light.. :)

And here is the footing being installed. Picture number 3 showing just how high the water table is.

Rebar in place, with the columns ready for a tie in with rebar.

Great start, keep the pics coming.
Are you building the same "Bison Steel building 40X60 12 or 14 sidewall height with 20ft front shed roof" that you were originally looking at?
