One thing about windows and doors, as long as the framing is in place, they are relatively easy to add later.

When we built my brother’s house years ago, it was solid sheeting on the outside for a year or so, with the exception of a couple doors. It gave him the time to work away at electrical, plumbing, insulation and drywall before adding the expense of the rest of the windows and doors.

Since this should be a money generating project in the future, focus on finishing stuff that will get it to be able to make you money. That way it can help pay for itself to an extent.

20 years ago I was to broke to build it..

30 years ago is when I first wanted to create a school..

10 years ago we moved here and 7 years ago I put the deposit on the building.

I honestly don't know about what or when it was supposed to be done.. For last year is when everything came together..

the site work, the foundation contractor.. Etc, etc. It's been a struggle but luckily that ( Do it as good as I can thought process pervades).. it just means having to keep going.

I just realized yesterday that no matter what at this point.. Everything on site is paid for.

Great advise and was the plan at this point..

I am going to focus on the front and getting it buttoned up then I will spend my time with the back doors.. I have so far not cut in any of the spacing for the forges ..

I will wait for sure.
