    Things are about done on the outside. They have to order more clay color gutter to match the section that is brown next to the inset porch. I have to find someone to install my overhead doors. I wouldn't want to mess with doors this size. The doors are a tan color with windows across the front, 2" metal backed, polyurethane filled.

    The doors are actually super super easy to do.

    Don't tell the guys that spent 3.5 days fighting those big doors how easy it was Picasso.;) I'm happy with how well the chain hoist work for them.

    I used 6x6's as a temporary solution for the doors until I get concrete. It's going to be a long time before I get concrete ($$$). They are held in place with 4' rebar.

    I've moved a lot of stone with the little Bobcat. I found a janky solution for that pain in the ass wheel until I get another platform. The chains hold the wheel about 5" off the ground. I don't know what bonehead at Bobcat thought that wheel was a good idea. I will say the ride is much smoother with the wheel.

    I spent all weekend cleaning up and redoing my enclosed trailer. It went in today to have a custom quick fill nurse tank setup for my Zmax installed. I will be able to pull in and refill my max with quick connects mounted to the walls without ever having to touch any herbicide. The pump is metered. I will put up pics when its done. The guys that are building it plan to market it to Ltrich customers. I am their test guinea pig.

    Also, I went to the work truck show in Indy last week. Pretty cool stuff there! I think I need this truck...

    I think my dump truck is better on fuel though.
