    Snowblower chute idiot bars…

    Those bars lasted about 1 hour of use on mine before I removed those. I did have to work through a safety pledge before I did however..... "Self, are you dumb enough to ask someone to put something in that chute while you sit on the tractor and keep the PTO going?"........I answered 'No' and...

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Today was more of using the B2601 as the expensive wheelbarrow it is.....lol. More trips from the garage up the driveway to the Morton with "stuff". Built up two shelving units. Since the Kubota will live in the Morton I moved all the fuel, oil, maintenance items etc. up there, moved...

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Moved some hay around that my wife had sitting in our garage......had the forks on so might as well. Then while I had some extra eyes here at the house for the holiday, my buddy and I moved the Winnebago TT from the side of the house into the new Morton Building, I move it around with the...

    Solid suggestion......... Honestly I wasn't supposed to be involved in the pour etc. at all, this was going to be a "just write the check for the guy" type of job. Then when I checked on them I sensed a high degree of urgency and they were kinda pissed off due to the change in mix they didn't...

    Well.......we finally got here. Cement floor was poured today......it had some wild moments but overall it came out well. The second truck evidently mixed in more calcium carbonate than they should have so there was a little "urgency" to some of the work. There was also about 2 yds of cement...

    Heck of a good point. I have the battery pack an didn't install it as I didn't want it to just die due to no charging capability, might look into a solar charger for short term.

    Update: Friday the overhead door was installed, came out great. Until I power the building it is "fine" to manually raise and lower the door, no big deal. The Liftmaster opener is already installed and just needs to be plugged into a power source. The even bigger news is that I was able to...

    After a couple decades of marriage at this point, I clearly have learned to pick my battles. The fact that she was "excited" to have this new Morton out in front of the house (long 600'+ driveway) was a good thing, if she wanted control over the colors.....fine by me. That is clearly something...

    Fair question...... On a Morton Standard building they use their "Morton Galvanized Stilt Support System" with Redi-mix concrete. So, 48" hole, galvanized support and channel, PT lumber nailed into channel with stainless nails, cement around that and then soil the last couple feet. While we...

    They used them but they are buried just below the grade............ Yeah the 2601 was the first thing in. Ram 2500 is next to it now. I can't get too crazy until the floor is done in the Spring but for winter we are going to try and cram our travel trailer in there as we are trading it in for...

    OK, time for an update. Building was delivered in September, and they just spent the past 4 business days assembling it. Everything is now done with the exception of the overhead door (next week) and pouring a cement floor in the Spring. Very pleased with things, always want bigger but.......

    Site work has been going fairly well. Although I cringe every time another dump truck of clean fill comes in......lol $ Bringing things up to the driveway grade. It will be nice to not see the neighbor's house at all once the building is up along with the solar and landscaping.......

    OK to close out the "Red Tape" portion of this saga: I got the email from the BI yesterday with the approval of my Building Permit with the specification of the cement floor. For the permit I owe the town $230 which I need to go pay to get the actual permit. I spoke to my site work guy and...
