Default The RV Hangar Rises......



While Louise and I are enjoying the fact that our new home is in the final stretch when it comes to finish (plumbers, painters, electricians, masons, tile guys, appliance installers all in at once...), Mikey, Tsam and the Val are much more excited that their new home is taking shape!

Frame is ready for inspection, roofers and stucco guys descend next....and the Horton door is installed and all ready to go!

Thumbs up

50 ft by 65 ft?

Looks good. I like the door...

Check with the inspectors if they want a sign off on the nut/bolts torque? That almost got me during my construction.

Nice, looks good, it looks like you did your homework facing the door south to melt the snow and ice, our door at KMEV will get ice locked if not maintained with shovels and salt.

Looks tall enough to get another three RVs in there on hoists, too.
