My Heaven on Earth
 
I started building my house three years ago and I'm almost there. I drew up the plans and came up with a 30x44' house with a 150'ft attached Sunroom facing 12 degrees West off due South and a 28x30 2 car garage attached. I wanted a hunting cabin with modern features. I did all the Millwork, hardwood floors, tile, wiring, and landscaping...the Kitchen, main entry, Mudroom and both baths are tile while the rest of the house is Pergo hardwood floor. The basement and structure were contracted. The exterior is all steel with 5 1/2 inch blown in insulation and the roof has 18 inches of batts. I still have the millwork to complete in the Sunroom and that's about it other than minor stuff. The house is surrounded by a covered 8 foot deck which is 16 feet in the back. Welcome to Heaven on Earth. Regards, Rick.

Rick, we saw the owner's picture in #7, where are the staff quarters you get?;D
The cat's chef should enjoy working in that kitchen, the last house I built for us had 22' of counter with an 8x8' walk in pantry, now we are stuck in a trailer with 8' of counter, bummer!

Rick,

What Alboy said and I will add one more adjective....Superlative!! Can't have a house without a cat or two! I also noted you have a soft spot of the B-25 Mitchell..I would love to take a ride in that particular aircraft...:biggthumpup:

Really like your whole setup!

Ol' John...:Banghead: :sleeping:

The B25 was the plane my dad flew in WWII while assigned the the 42d Bomb Group SN 34381....I built the model for him complete with the Group markings and correct SN. It is a cherished heirloom.

Constituted as 42nd Bombardment Group (Medium) on 20 Nov 1940. Activated on 15 Jan 1941. Trained with B-18, B-25, and B-26 aircraft. Patrolled the west coast during 1942. Moved to the Pacific theater, Mar-Apr 1943, and assigned to Thirteenth AF. Entered combat in Jun 1943, using B-25's and operating from bases in the Solomon Islands. Attacked Japanese airfields, personnel areas, gun positions, and shipping in the central Solomons. Engaged primarily in the neutralization of enemy airfields and harbor facilities on New Britain from Jan to Jul 1944, but also supported ground forces on Bougainville and attacked shipping in the northern Solomons and the Bismarcks. Later, beginning in Aug 1944, bombed airfields and installations on New Guinea, Celebes, and Halmahera, and flew photographic reconnaissance missions, while operating from bases in New Guinea and Morotai. Moved to the Philippines in Mar 1945. Attacked shipping along the China coast, struck targets in French Indochina, bombed airfields and installations in the Philippines, and supported ground operations on Mindanao. Also supported Australian forces on Borneo during May and Jun 1945, receiving a DUC for its preinvasion bombing of Balikpapan, 23-30 Jun. Brought its combat service to an end, Jul and Aug 1945, by attacking isolated Japanese units on Luzon. Ferried troops and equipment to Manila after the war. Moved to Japan in Jan 1946 as part of the occupation force. Inactivated in Japan on 10 May 1946.

Regards, Rick.
