I'm sure it won't stay that way very long he could not wait till it was complete with being fully skinned and started putting shit in it and I had to run his butt out cause I could not work that way around all his crap leave one day and come back the next and there be more crap piled in and around it like it was already built, and that was a constant battle every time...

But due to my health reasons! and The only people, anyone can find to work around here anymore are 99% Tweaker meth heads and dope fiends, This will be my last building and construction job I'll ever do... wish it weren't so but looking more and more like I'm really done doing anything hard and heavy and the simple things are taking the toll on me as well...

But the shop did come out fairly well considering all the major issues of allowing him to control the slab and other issues, he had to be a cheap skating on the slab, and the slab was more than 23 inches off and they sunk the weld plates at 25', 26', 24', & 25-1/2' But me being me I was able to make it work with a lot of fussing and cursing under my breath when I could hold the worst parts of my foul mouth closed... and materials were ordered for
a precut 25'x 25' building...

Just too bad I can't find decent help here and has nothing to do with pay cause I paid well and accordingly for skilled and non-skilled labor.
sad that drugs have weakened the mids of the younger generation and seem to be their only goal in life any more is to get high meth and chase the next high.. and then that opens up too many cans of worms for an employer one being, liability, trust and, dependability!

Yes, great job Randall. I noticed the junk accumulating and wondered why. Now I know
Concrete and layout of pillars should not be done by tweakers or cheapskates.
A fuckup is forever in concrete.
