Palo Verde looks like it will be a constant pain in the ass.

Yeah solid ground here, about 15inch down in most spots they hit calichi which is solid.

And yes cut down one palo verde already. Going to be cutting the other 2 quite a bit to keep away from shop.

It's overkill for AZ. Don't have to worry about frost heave and shit like that. Most house slabs don't even have footings.

Yup if my building was smaller it would just need a thickened edge and some 12" cubes under the posts. The foundation design they said is for lifting more than it is for settling. The wind will want to lift the building more than the weight will want to push it down.

2 5 ton ac units going in since I dont have 3 phase power.

And its 95% done. Need door handles and some sealant around doors. Roll up doors going in next week hopefully.

Also will be sheeting the inside and adding more insulation as well as building office and bathroom.

Really appreciate you sharing $$ with the class,

is the roll up door cost per door? or is the 7500 for the 3 x doors.

I am seeing prices for doors - 12 x 14 in the 5K range, insulated, glass panels, fully auto.

Haha. Hopefully not. I had to rig up some extenders for front jacks to load camper onto my dodge when I bought it. Make extenders wrong so they are a bit shakey. Have new ones made much better but haven't had time to swap them out. Some strong winds the other day braced it up better safe than sorry.

My mom and dad cleaned windows for last 30 years so she doesnt mind climbing up ladders. While I'm not a fan of extension ladders.
