It warmed up enough to pour the slab today. One thing I noticed this builder does different from others I have seen is that he has 3/8 or 1/2" bolts (threaded rod?) embedded in the concrete to bolt the frame down. Most I have seen use thin metal straps.

For Christmas 2016, my wife bought me 1.5 hours of track time with an instructor in a 911 Carrera 4S. That was a blast!

We're just happy you are getting it running. I've always like old VW's, and my dream car is a Porsche 911. I guess I have a thing for rear engined cars.

Once my house is built, that would make a great towel holder for the sink in my garage.

Shutdown averted. Fortunately, my current job seems to be exempt from shutdowns. The one we had 3 weeks ago had no impact on me, but there were folks on this base that were sent home.

They look like they would give decent ground clearance as well.

I'll have to check with my builder. I do know one of the reasons his homes seem to take a couple of months longer than some other builders is that he takes his time to build a quality product and not just slap something up fast and move on to the next house.

I can't upload the plans here. My wife searched for a builder that she was happy with. He in turn took the plans and got bids from various subs (framer, plumber, HVAC, etc.) and put together a detailed cost sheet.

I don’t have any experience with manufactured homes. My builder is a former aerospace engineer and is very meticulous.

We hope to be in by late summer. Our builder projected 7-9 months, depending on weather mainly.

Slab is ready to be poured. Plumbing is in the ground now. I noticed a sticker on one of the pipes indicating the city had inspected and approved of the work at this point. About the house: Master suite downstairs. Open floor plan with large kitchen. Three bedrooms/2 baths upstairs. There are two half-baths downstairs - one of which is only accessible from back porch for pool guests. Att

The '65 and earlier didn't require a shut lid to pull air through the condenser because the unit is situated over the fan and having air drawn through it lid open or closed. As clunky as the 65 and earlier design is, it doesn't look like it would be preheating the carb inlet air like the 66 design does.

That's the fun part of restoration - trim parts that look good on daily drivers or even nice fair-weather cruisers look poor on a car with perfect paint and body work.

I would think you could either fill out additional cars on the back, or attach another form for each car. Funny that we've never been asked this after all of these years. And I know for a fact that people have shown multiple cars.

Curt - yes, we will have an underground shelter. I plan on researching some form of manual hydraulic mechanism that can force the door open if the house collapses over the door. Ken, the back porch will be screened in and have a proper roof over it. Our cats are indoor only, so a screened porch is a must so they can bird watch. I call it Kitty HDTV.

We figure we can keep some emergency supplies for us and the cats in there, plus their carriers. When time to seek shelter, we grab them and get inside.

The resistor is built into the engine bay harness by means of a special resistor wire.
