    Should have the power company out next week to hook up the meter and the new transformer for this. Since I went 200amps and 40 circuit box separate meter for it.

    Also have concrete guy coming out to get the floor ready for radiant heat on Tuesday, then the radiant radiant floor guy will come in on Wednesday to do his part. Concrete guy will come back on Friday to pour the 50x36 floor and a 5x36 apron out front of the pole barn.

    I went so over budget on this but might as well do it right the first time.

    Should be able to be up and running doing powder coating in 3 weeks after concrete poured. I am so stoked... Don't know what i am going to do to occupy myself during this time.

    Then when winter gets close i will have to insulate it and get a boiler setup for the radiant floor heat....

    Probably going to have to sell some of my parts I have acquired to get this all done.

    Nah and that wasn't me driving the trencher, it was the electrician and being careful of tree roots ;). Just got to wait for it to settle and then push the rest of the sand on the divot.

    Yeah you want to move in the man cave your more then welcome too Mark ;) .. Might have to put you too work sandblasting parts and getting them ready for powder coat ...:crazy:

    Looks great! Lots of room in there, but as they say: "No matter what the size, it's just a different level of clutter". :p

    Looks great man!

    Just out of curiosity, what brand of trencher did he use to dig the trench?

    Edit...nevermind, I see him pulling what looks like a Ditch Witch 1030 off the trailer in the 1st pic.
