    As some of you know jmason is getting a new roof over his head. The wife is rather exited. Here's a picture of the pile of dirt I wore out the shovel on with my daughters standing on it. The next one is the place all that dirt used to be with my oldest standing in it. Not hunting related but I have many friends on this site and it's an easy way to share.[​IMG]

    If you did that with a shovel, I could use you. Always looking to hire a good pipelayer with experience with a shovel.:)

    Im sorry, I was just thinking the exact same thing...........hahahahahahahaha
    Good work. hope you left plenty fo room for bracing and stripping forms. Dirt loves to sluff with weather, and its a real ''bear'' to strip forms when you have to use a ''shovel'' for real. LOOKS GREAT tho.

    Yup summers over before it started! I can shoot about 700 yards from my yard to the hill across the way. I am upgrading my "Man corner" to at least a "Man wall" in the basement under the new roof.

    One of the great 'signatures' I've read here on LRH said:

    "My greatest fear is that when I die, my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them"

    Congratulations on breaking ground...appears to be alot of it. Are you going to build it entirely yourself or sub various stages out?
