Favors = more hard work

Man i tell ya... my bro-in-law is a good buddy but his favors are getting intense....

He's been moving his trailer to a foundation to get out of that trap we call trailer parks... :bang:

Been working on the property and now the house...

First clearing 125' and now working farther back now..

Take apart and haul over a shed



Getting the truck and trailer back there was an event... as soon as I committed to the angle... ALL THROTTLE BABY! The boys said it looked like a chevy commercial...




had to haul over a tractor with the SS... the SS did very well with the weight... the auto air leveling works AWESOME.


unloading


backwards wheelie till the air released


Moved 16 yards of dirt


And do some leveling of some stuff that was there




Move some extra cylinder blocks by hand till we do the front porch


Put in drainage tile and a sump pump pit, then enjoyed some cold ones..









And of coarse... more clearing and burning..



And of coarse when the beer and pizza show up... more peeps show up..




and now he's got some **** on my lift too!

Looks like a lot of progress made in a short time. Looks like fun. I love doing stuff like that.

I'm working on building my own bike shop in the bottom of my folks' office building... once I get some more work done I will be making a big thread about it. It's gonna be a real 'man den'... beer fridge, tools, bikes. I'm very psyched.

Maybe eventually I will get a kegerator... for now it will just be a 4 foot by 2 foot small fridge full of individual beers. I've got a decent amount of work left to do before it's all together. I've got everything planned out in my head though. The whole place is gutted and the floor should be going in later this week.


Also, my reservation is that a kegerator may encourage me to drink heavily.... while working on my motorcycle that may not be the best idea.....: "ummm chit my cylinder head is on upside down"
