    Nope. Slab was done 6 weeks ago. Building is paid for. Still waiting on the building guy to show up. He keeps putting us off. Bo talked to him yesterday in a not friendly manner and supposedly he will be here in a week or so. If not then I’ll be making a trip to Pontotoc. I’m tired of the bs and ready for a building and I want either it, the money, or some satisfaction soon. If we hadn’t dealt with this builder in the past and been pleased then I wouldn’t have been this patient

    Ok here’s an update. Building has been up for a couple months but between working on the road and weather have been slow getting it done. As of tonight all the electrical conduit to pass inspection is done and we pulled 2 runs of wire. Too wet to tie in water and sewer. One baby step at a time. I was holding off on posting pix til all the lighting was done. Right now we’re running on 2 of 7 overhead lights and extension cords.

    Made the sewer tie in 6’ deep and got water to building today. We dug a bell hole I could’ve buried my truck in. Running two frost proof faucets on Saturday and the plumbing will be done. Off to the ER in Starkville tomorrow

    Mark I’m about 90%. You can come anytime. The rain is killing me. I’ve been trying to pour the slab for the powder coating oven for 2 months. The plasma table is up and running, bandsaw is like new, and I’m set up to weld. Just need to build the oven and buy a sand blasting cabinet to be operational
