    Larry keeps changing the pictures. Where did the frame laying on the asphalt go? It is like watching a slide show. LOL

    This is Denny, Ted's helper. You can see the third panel is in. That is the first one we put in from the top. We did all the rest from top after this one worked out so well.

    These are the styrofoam panels that I will put all along the outer edges of the floor to help keep out the cold.

    This is the ditch we had to dig to bring in water, electric, and gas lines.

    The lines for gas and water and electric are in place but we are having problems with the furnace. We can't get the gas to work. I have help coming Monday to help solve this problem. The water works but I need more fittings to put in the filter and tap. You don't want to know how many times I went to the hardware saturday for fittings and also had to get more gas line. The power line is in place but not wired in yet. This has to wait till Tuesday. Then maybe I can move some plants in.

    I have a man coming the end of this week to check out the gas line. We can't get the furnace to light. We have the water line and electric enclosed in pvc pipe and the gas is outside the pvc. I don't know if this is ok or not but the guy that is coming will tell me. He also is with the fire department. I have made 3 large cash deposits for brick and pavers for the floor. It looks like I will have to make a couple more.
