I Tried to move this from “Coffee Shop” to here but it Didn’t work. I would of had to Repost and explain EVERY Picture. Thank YOU for your Understanding & Patience.

EDIT: Nov. 1/2018 It Took Its OWN Sweet Time But It Moved Them ALL Over To Here. HOW is BEYOND ME! ...lol…

Now I really Screwed it up!!! They took their time and moved ALL of what’s in Coffee Shop over to here. Now I THINK there is only ONE Picture in “Coffee Shop” & ALL Of Those GREAT & APPRECIATED COMMENTS! I’m NOT Going To Delete Them!!!

That’s not all of them but it’s ENOUGH! I don’t even know how I managed to get this far!!!

Reminds me of some home building we were doing in Honduras after Hurricane Mitch. Our team of 10, plus some locals, built six houses in five days – single room, support beams, floor joists, flooring, walls framed & sided, rafters & corrugated roof, plus stairway from the ground because the houses were on 8 ft. concrete columns.

Thanks Rick S for the compliment. I should note that the houses included NO plumbing or electrical. All of the materials were pre-delivered and in the exact amount to do the house.

On the following three years we were building homes in El Salvador following their major earthquake – steel reinforced concrete block homes with steel rafters and corrugated composition roofs. We did well to complete a house in a week. These had a single light fixture and no plumbing.

WOW! Phil! You certainly have had a VAST amount of experience! I know these sound like pretty Basic Homes but that doesn’t matter. You and your Guys did a Hell of a Job for the Benefit of a LOT of other Families. That’s what I call “GOOD STUFF!”

Now your just doing Basic Carpentry/Carving and little things compared to what you did before. You Poor Guy ..lol..

Thanks for your Responses. They are Much Appreciated! If it’s okay with you, I’m going to add you to My “Buddies List” and am pleased to so!

I just did that and your Profile is Very Impressive Indeed.

Do you ever just SIT DOWN and do Absolutely NOTHING …... LOL …. ;-}
