So, are you going to fill in the foundation? I ask because there appears to be doors and windows in the "basement" area. What will you use for a floor in the garage area if you don't fill and pour concrete?

Looks great though. You only have $100.00 in the whole thing?

It definitley pays to look around My dad was an old carp he'd take any thing you were throwing out but some how he would find out when they were demolishing a building and we would go down and strip all the T-111 and electrical conduits and what ever else they would give him.I spent many a saturday stripping wire and pulling nails out of ply wood.
