Headquarters


Figured I'd do a thread for the new office/shop remodel.

So I'm going to go ahead and say it should take 5 months at the most, I'm figuring on moving in next August. LOL.

Got a lot of things up things up in the air as far as capital and cash flow, don't want to spend money anywhere I can save it on this thing. One of these days maybe I'll be rich and be able to sub out everything on our own stuff, that day sure ain't today though. LOL.

Will most likely form and set rebar, hire finishers. My brother and I will run our own DWVs and rough in

We will frame it in the evenings and weekends like we did our houses. I'll have a couple guys works Friday and Saturday to set trusses and may have a couple do the siding. My dad will cut for us.

Sub wiring

Were thinking about using 5 Mini Splits off of a multi-unit condenser. Each office and two in the reception area. Definitely sub that out as well.

Sub spray foam

We will roof it with single lock standing seam

Hang the rock, sub TFT

My guys will do cabinets, I may do my built in book shelves.

My dad and brother and I will do the trim

I don't paint

I don't set tile

I don't do floors

We can build the screen porch why maybe 72 Chevy does all that lol

Mason will do out door kitchen

We will see if it goes down like that. Lol

Shop will get FC board and batten and Boral mechanical fastener stone wainscott

Whole shop needs revamped inside and major clean out

There is two sheds getting knocked down, and the one in the back that needs to be finished on the outside and painted is my project managers/supers offices

That yellow shed we will cut off foundation and tote down the rode for an old lady. Good shed. Built like a brick chit house - my old man built for my mama to do laundry !

Shop is to the right 75 ft. I'll include in the thread as it's finished put redone

Fun fact:

This building (before two add ons) was a weight room my dad built (we helped ) when I was a young kid man. He bought a full weight set for us as well

When we first started this deal we remodeled, he and I poured two grade beams and reframe the door with the walls in place. My brother helped on vacation from college. We used as an office before moving into town

My mom had far left desk, I had middle (never there at that time), old man far right

Joys of buying family homestead. Everywhere you look are memories and nostalgia

I will holler. I'm still contemplating cutting it in, I think I've got most of the material in my lumber Bays, but I don't know how much work I have to do to straighten them up.

The front office on the left is mine, putting hardwood Maple I took out of a gym and there, main areas Mesquite flooring we have left over from having some build up, the rest should be tile.

Are you saving some of those trees, or is this going to look like a shaved crotch?

Definitely saving the trees. If you look on the floor plan it actually shows the oak tree in the front to the right of the front screen porch, the dark circle.

By the way Davis, I know you old timers are used to full on 70s beards, but shaved is pretty normal now, or at least very trimmed.

The beard would be the one that would look out of place these days unless things have changed in the last 15 years. Lol

LOL, I don't care either way. I just didn't know if the trees were going to be in the way or you were working around. I figured you'd work around, because those are some nice trees for that area.

My very large collection of 60's and 70's, uh, reading material would prove you very correct.

In fact, if you turned them upside down, they would look like a young Santa Claus.

My experience was 33 when I was 18. So she would be 51. Meaning she was born in 1968.

Still a pretty young thang... at least compared to many of the old goats around here.

As for beards. It's a crapshoot.
