    BUILDING RV PAD / TEXAS HILL COUNTRY

    We are "on the road" this week... well, "in the air". Flying to Boston to broadcast an event... 2,000 miles each way... so we decided it would be cheaper to fly..... we'll be back soon though!

    99% done... just minor details and the decorating..... Today we had our first "live broadcast" from the "outdoor studio". (We have a live show every Wednesday on Radio Trop Rock from wherever we are.... ) DreamWood Builders did the RV pad/cover and the 12x28 storage building. I did the landscaping and covered deck/bar/studio area.

    95% complete.... just the "details" now...… and all the decorations that are in storage to put up........ although... people that know me are aware.... I'll never ever be "done".

    Yes we do! It is a redneck table... I'm going to work on it a little... but we needed something bulky and tough so this fits.... We have A LOT of outdoor decoration / bar stuff / neon signs etc.... in storage that should be here in a couple of weeks... but.... Here are the latest....

    What "songfest" is in Kerrville this weekend? Here are today's updates!

    Awesome! We've got a couple work trips in March (Mass. first weekend and BVIs last week) but should be in town for MOST of it. These were 8x8x16 and had to be special ordered..... I suspect they were a large part of the total cost.

    BUILDING RV PAD / TEXAS HILL COUNTRY

    Yes please. I don't mind sharing the info.... just the cover itself, which is a 54' x 24' roof (8x8 posts are 50' x 20' apart), was about $22,000. Utilities: electric and water only was about $2,000 and that included a separate meter and 200 amp box. No septic.... they wanted another $15,000 for that due to rock... no rock it would have been about 5 or 6K. The "pad" itself is caliche, so, much less expensive than concrete, was about $1,000 to level / grate and caliche. Here are the latest pictures of the bar area, and Wilke's "Bad ***" fire pit.... about 80% complete:

    The shell is built and painted... hopefully tomorrow I get the roof on and stain the deck. Then the details begin. (decorating)

    haha..... If we owned the land I could show you that..... we're on the in-laws acreage.... so, not our call to allow "guests". That would be cool though! Here is the latest update.... building the deck/bar/outdoor studio ……. in the rain... what a mess. About 1/3 done with it.

    BUILDING RV PAD / TEXAS HILL COUNTRY

    We're getting close.... almost done.... only 16x16 covered deck/bar/outdoor studio left to build and lighting to add. and... of course the "detail" work.
  11. ERIC@BABIN.COM

    BUILDING RV PAD / TEXAS HILL COUNTRY

    Yes....we have a lot of issues with rock here.... don't even think about digging a hole....

    BUILDING RV PAD / TEXAS HILL COUNTRY

    We have given it some thought but undecided as of now. We'll probably wait for summer to see how bad we'd need it.

    One man and one skid steer can get a lot done in 7 days: (still not done though)

    That is my gray water hose.... it's up on the fence while I drive the skid steer around.... don't want to crush it before it's put into place. We're in the Pipe Creek TX area. Not too far from Texas Custom Coach if you know where that is. Here is our schedule: http://radiotroprock.com/tour-schedule/
