Looking At Cabins

Sometimes you just have to stop and take pictures and look at the old Colorado cabins.  In my small community of less than 2000 people, South Park, Colorado, there used to be 150,000 people living…Continue

Log Cabin Restoration Videos

Citizens, this is how we remove old concrete chinking from log homes.  The tool being used is a Makita Power scraper.  This tool has helped us remove tens of thousands of feet of old concrete.  Water was leaking into this 100+ year old cabin every time it rained and no furnace could keep the place warm anymore at 10,000 feet so it was time to re-chink.  The home is located in Fairplay, Colorado.The second video shows media blasting with crushed recycled glass that we buy from Sashco in Denver,…See More

Jim, some people need to do themselves (and us industry folks) a favor and buy existing. Building something new and special takes guts, resources, patience, vision and trust. These virtues don't come easy. Why this thread has even been allowed to continue, must be asked of the site moderator (there obviously isn't one). All this prospect (with no land, but a load of experience) has done has riled a majority. "Some people, you just can reach". It's not worth the aggravation.

He has a point about forecasts and scheduling so nobody has a blank check. But the adversarial attitude comes thru loud and clear, and why would anyone want to do business with such a gem?
So let's hope there are legit prospects with respectable dialogue that can benefit from this site. Otherwise, life's too short to deal with _________.

Hello Folks, You may have noticed that I let myself respond to Chuck's discussion on contracting and the things he required of his Builder. This Gentleman represents a situation that can teach you every thing not to do when it comes to contracting. I have been in this business for over 30 years and in this case it is all about the price and it may be difficult to get paid. I caution anyone considering this project to think long and hard about it. When it happened to me my wife cautioned me that this client would be a problem and I ignored her to my peril. The whole time we were building the home he kept in touch with his lawyer and it became a financial nightmare. Rely on your gut and pass up a situation you wish you had. Good Luck out there and do good work. Jim
