I live in a community of about 5000 people. We aren't even an incorporated town. I have a small 28x36 shop, but it is fully insulated and has a pretty decent pellet stove so I can work out there year round. I can fit my CCLB in it to work on it, but I don't have ceiling height to pull the cab. I keep my backhoe in a lean-to I built off the side of the shop.

Debt free

Nice, can't beat small towns. My town population is 1372, closest town to me is Belfast with a population of about 5400. Closest Walmart is 34 miles away.
Don't know ho big I'm going to make mine, the cash on hand vs the price of the slab will determine the size of the slab. If I only build on half the slab this year I'll be happy building the other half next year.
I'm debt free and will stay that way, don't even have a mortgage. Utility bills and property taxes.

Happy wife, happy life.

I'd like to redo this old drafty farmhouse but I'd need a bulldozer. This thing is a small old "foursquare" with the smallest kitchen I've ever seen in a farm house, only 2 bedrooms, one bath. Sometime in it's history they jacked it up and added 2 courses of block on top the ancient sandstone basement.Needles to say it gets wet down there. It needs either torn down or a huge addition, trouble is I can only build on one side.

If you're planning on a 2 post lift, don't pour your slab in sections. Cold seams are the reason I didn't put mine up in my big building. Well that and no heat.

One pour

One slab, one pour.
One section will be thick enough for a lift but the lift itself will have to wait a year or two if I get one. Can't break my "No debt" rule!

Is there a difference between hitting the "Reply" button and the "Post" button? Never belonged to a forum before.

I was looking at doing a lift too. A 12k lift would require 6 inch rebar reinforced 3000+ psi. I have no ide what the current slab is. But i read i can cut a 4x4' area for each pole of the lift, reinforce it into the existing slab, and make it 6-8 inches thick. I would have to drill the existing slab and slide the rebar in and epoxy. This may be the route i will go. It may cost alot to remove all that concrete and pour a new slab. 40'◊50'

LOL old 4square with a leaky basement you say? It's not to the point where tearing it down and starting over would be cheaper, but it's not too far off. That can't happen tho cause it's wifey's family homestead, her grandfather built it in 1905, so it has to be redone not demolished. I also have a lake in my basement at this very moment, the sump hasn't stopped for like 4 months now.

Agree with the "no debt" thing, after paying off the mortgage we planned to stay out of debt. But I decided I needed (wanted) a new tractor last year, I put 30% down but I financed the rest, wish I wouldn't have done that! That's why my shop floor is waiting till Aug to get poured so I can pay cash.

If you just want to chime in or make a simple post you can use the Quick Reply box and post it, if you quote someone that'll open a reply box but if you do a multi quote you select each one and when you're done hit the Reply button, it'll bring up all your quotes. Look for the [/QUOTE] thing and make your replies there, then go the the next one and reply etc. etc.

For a homeowner a 10K would be plenty, we had quite a discussion on here back when I bought mine. My 10K call for a min of 4" of 3000psi. You can beg, borrow, or rent a hammer drill and test the thickness of your existing slab. Or you can do what you said and tear out a 4 or 5' square and pour that, I almost did that in my machine shed since the ceiling is cathedral style and high enough for my lift (need 13') but I decided I needed a dedicated workshop, that'll give me more room to spread out in the mach shed and have a nice heated shop. All went according to plan until I started adding up the PEX, manifold, vapor barrier/insulation, 5" of concrete and paying my Amish builder to pour it. That would have taken every cent of cash on hand and that didn't sit well. My oil/gas lease will pay off the tractor and floor come August.

I got my lift from Greg Smith Equip. their lifts are nice and they're well built. Trouble is with the steel tariffs the prices are up. (The only thing the president is doing that I don't care for, a tariff is a tax on consumers) They're still more affordable than most people think. This is like the one I got, mine is just an extra tall and not the extra wide, only difference is this one I linked is 6" wider between the columns. You can save some money if you pick it up instead of the "free" delivery, when I picked mine up in Indianapolis the guy threw in a set of truck frame adapters and an 18 gallon steel pressurized oil drain, saved me a few hundred bucks on just that, plus what I saved picking it up. They have stores in like 10 states so there might be one near you. If we stay here, I'd like to get a 4 post lift for my other bay, another place to work on stuff plus double my parking area.

And it was a good excuse to drive the 7.3



Another good excuse was when I went the other direction to the east side of PA to get this...

Yeah ours is prolly over 100 years old, nothing but cash stopping me from bulldozing it. Can't believe they went thru the trouble of jacking it up without going ahead and tearing out the sandstone and laying up proper walls.

My sister-in-law has a newer double wide here and we're thinking of buying it from her. If we do that, we'll gut this house and make it nice. Our boy always wanted to stay here but now as he gets older he's talking about going west after graduation. Me and the wife fully intend to retire from farming if he does that. So if we fix the house up, buy the double wide (run pex to it for heat from the new boiler) get everything painted up nice we'll probably sell out and find 50 acres of woodland somewhere, get another Harley and a newer bass boat and retire. After this winter we both decided it's time to relax.

Cool. There is a dealer in Portland.

The 10k scares me, as my truck is heavy with those bumpers and all. I need to step up to the 12k or 15k i think. Better to be safe than sorry.

So I have a question about stand pipes for the earlier build 6.0 . I have ordered two of these and neither one has had the gasket at the top end of the stand pipe does this sound normal?
