I hope it'll have a better plot line than we usually get with these kind of things! Mad

I shall make sure it is done properly: not too stiff in presentation, but also not sloppily handled either.

Halfy, it is much less than it would normally cost. I acquired as many materials for free from work, and elsewhere, as I could.

There's no need for AC in the coastal climate here, and there's a propane heater.

Everything has increased in cost greatly since a few years ago, but thankfully lumber has returned to a slightly saner price after a large spike that happened about a year and a half into covid.

Still, if I was building the place at current prices I'm sure it would cost me something more like 60k.

That being said, boards are the cheapest component. The expenses really start to add up once you get into plywood, roofing materials, insulation, windows, hardwood floors, tiles, drywall, paint, appliances, etc.

Well, I never did get a video done, and now I've moved to Iowa!
Here is how it looked the day before I left:

The finished interior I can post later once my sister takes some pictures of it for me.

Moved to Iowa?! I suppose if MY erection lasted 7 years I'd have to do something drastic as well. You shall have to tell a story.

(damn fine looking erection, I must admit).

{{{ That is indeed a very fine erection you have there Forest. Nod I hadnt expected it to have quite such a fine flourish to it nor be quite so vibrant in its colour.
Though I do fear that this Saxon humour may be about to take a turn for the worse now your sister has her hands on your erection Shocked


love the dragons- Figg

Mine has dragons too, I think....oh no its ok, its just a burning sensation where I spilt my buckie Mad }}
