Yes , it certainly has a process so far. Have lifted and installed many lbs of steel so far. Should be able to get the 220V panel installed and service pulled for it next week and then hopefully get the roof on in the next couple weeks.
Man I just cant wait till I get it dried in. I will then be able to work inside rain or shine, night and day.

Yes I have come to the conclusion that it's physically impossible to install the roof by myself. I am hiring out to do the roof and gutters, should be done early next week.

It's located in Goliad county.

The roof is done. Still have gutters and down spouts to install.
I have begun to fabricate and install the substructure for the vaulted ceiling in the kitchen / living area. Plan on using old barn tin for that. Also some metal beams suspended 10ft or so above the floor that will be boxed in with wood.

Will try to get some pics up of the above soon.

Default It's coming along .......

Finally got the roof on and it mostly dried in. Needing to hang some steel before having it spray foamed. I had to use a chain fall and an electric winch to put the square tubing up. Must have been up and down that scaffolding a 100 times to get it up, leveled and welded by myself. Hoping to pull wire for the service this coming week so I can get more electricity for lights and a few outlets. I can start moving saws, a air compressor, work benches and other equipment in there now. Thinking out loud I may just drag a wire feed welder to help with the welding chores.

It's going to serve a couple of purposes. Its main purpose is to support the vaulted ceiling. I am dropping the height down a bit in the middle to allow a space between the roof and ceiling. The 2 outside post(one of those hadn't been installed when the pics above were taken) are going to be in a wall and not seen. The 2 in the middle will be seen but they will be boxed in with rock/wood and provide a place in the middle of the room to attach beams running across a 40 foot span. In turn the beams will provide a place to install indirect lighting and ceiling fans.
I hope this makes sense. There will be a 12ft island bar just behind them
to separate the kitchen and living area.

On another note I got the service wire pulled. Three 3/0's and a #4 ground.

Pretty much done with the exterior other than the front porch area.
Getting geared up to start the interior framing. I am going to be looking at metal framing soon as I like the ease of installation and it's clean look. If I go with metal there are still some areas that wood is still going to be used.

Here are a few pics of a build that a friend of mine did using metal.










Here are a couple of shots with the trim, gutters and carport nearly done.

Got the outside 220V panel installed and wired up.




This afternoon I made some "faux beam" models to show the Mrs as examples of what I want to put up to cover the sq tubing in the center of the vaulted ceiling. I have a 26ft span for the one I am going to build. The upper one is the size I will need, it's about 11"x11"

God blessed me with a pair of hands and a strong will to build things myself. I cant help myself from not wanting to tackle things myself when I get a chance. Consider them personal challenges.


Today I have a bunch of 2x12 to cut/rip, distress, drill, glue, screw and install. We will see out this day turns out

Well I got a good start yesterday. Working with 2x10 and 2x12's has it's challenges but I am working through it. Made a bunch of sawdust!

Not great pics but here are a few....






Should get some better ones today.

Thanks for the kind words.


Supposed to have a spray foam contractor come out tomorrow and look at want I want to do. When I get that done I will move on the framing the inside,


Here are a couple more from the other day in the daylight. I think it's going to turn out ok. It is quite a bit of work distressing the wood but on the other hand I don't think you can make a mistake.

Time to get this thing spray foamed.

Spray foam guys showed up yesterday and were about 3 minutes into it and had a pump crap out on them. Now waiting to see when they can repair or replace it.

I use three 4 1/2" grinders, one with a straight wire wheel, one with a wire cup and one with a plain metal grinding disc. The wire wheels are great for taking out the softer wood and leaving the harder stuff which enhances the grain and gives the surface some depth. Run them with the grain.

I use others tools and various things to strike and impact the wood which adds to the distressed look. Different hammers, wrecking bars, hatchet, draw knife, gouge chisels and various metal things.

Really don't think you could do this wrong. It does take a lot of elbow grease. The hard part is trying to hide the seams/joints were the different grains are running opposite.

I was able to get the last pieces up yesterday to complete the 27ft long beam.
Still have some work to do on it but the hardest part is done. Will try to get some close up pictures when I am done. The beam is about 17ft off the floor so that alone will hide some boo boo's lol

The spray foaming is done. Time is limited, started on hanging the purlin that will support the rusted barn tin I am going to be installing in the kitchen/living room area. The vaulted ceiling will use a bit more than 1000 sq ft of tin. It will be 10ft off the floor at the side wall and 17ft in the middle It's going to be a lot of overhead work for me but I will figure a way to do it. Going to have to have the lighting figured out and fixtures in at the same time as the tin is installed. There will be a small space left to install some raceways of some sort so I can get wiring/duct work etc. across to the other side so it's out of view.
