Great Room Build

Recommended Posts

Here is the first post of my Great Room build.  I will be self performing most work with some sub contract work.  My Goal is to be wintered in by Labor day weekend.  These are the preliminary sketches.  I have a meeting with the architect this morning who is a fellow hunter and fisherman.  

We raised the walls to 11' and the peak inside to 15' along with some other small changes, the stepped down roof in the renderings goes away as well.  During my build I will be posting here.  If anybody does construction up north (Hackensack area) I am willing to entertain sub's or side work guys (PM is best).

If I tag out in Late September with a Bull Elk, I will be hosting an NJWW Elk dinner in the Great room.

Yes sir.  3rd time Elk Hunting with this particular outfitter.  In a total of 4 hunting days I have taken 2 Mature bulls....  Hopefully the luck continues.  I am not looking for a Monster, just a good bull to fill the freezer.  I will be looking for a monster Mule deer if I draw a tag.

Met with the building department yesterday with the preliminary plans.  Looks like we are good to go on coverage.  The Architect will now supply a full set of construction documents.

Plans submitted to town, there is a chance I will have the approval by next week.  Good chance to start on footings in 2-3 weeks.

Approvals from Town are done.  Wrapping up a LOC and maybe putting a shovel in the ground by 4th of July.

He won. But second place to him is still not that bad.
