Only a month behind schedule but FINALLY we have a great crew forming up the concrete this week and HOPEFULLY we will be set for pouring on Friday!! Rick Miller from Malta & his crew along with Curt Schmidt from Worden & his crew are working together forming and pouring the concrete. We have RL Schaff Concrete of Shepherd providing the concrete. This will be such a huge weight lifted for Larry once the concrete is finally complete & completed the correct way!! The first concrete crew hired by the ex-GC was trying to do 3' centers, tried shorting us on thickness of the pad, etc. It was so totally UNACCEPTABLE!! Thank God Larry knows concrete and got third party advice on what was right. Even the State of Montana Building inspector told us what they were trying to do was not even close to code. Larry had to tell the now ex-GC to get them off location and Larry hired his own concrete crew. They are great and there is no question, they know what they are doing!~Chasity
Concrete for the building is DONE!!! Yipee!! It looks absolutely amazing! We are so pleased with the outcome. Check out the pictures under the Photo Gallery. The first truck was there at 4:15 AM. Curt Schmidt & crew along with Rick Miller & crew did an AWESOME job! That is some pretty sexy concrete. He He :-)
BUILDING ARRIVED SATURDAY JULY 21ST!!!!!
Our shoulders felt a little lighter Saturday when the truck was unloaded and we could see our building. In pieces, but it was finally on site. Our GC & the concrete crew he hired left with several thousand dollars of our money in their pockets and we had nothing to show for it. As my mother-in-law says... "No good dead goes unpunished!" We worked directly with the building manufactur to get things straightened out and to get our building delievered. Its a horrible nightmare!! How could someone do this? But at least we have the building and we will continue to move forward.
As of Friday Aug 17th, 2012 ~~ 4 walls & half of the roof is done!!! It is so EXCITING to be this close to being completed!!!
Finished the concrete to tie up the existing building & the new building with the help of Clint Stimpson (my Dad) & his hired man. Thank you guys! Make sure you check out the Picture Gallery.
(406) 373-9800 We now have a land line & internet!! It's all starting to come together, EXCITING!!!
Erection of the new building is COMPLETE!!! YIPEE!

Lights are up and the Electricity is working in the new shop!!! A HUGE thanks to Lofing Electric of Columbus for an AWESOME job! The new shop lights are great, almost instantly bright lights, and the prettiest wiring job I've seen. Pete and Gary ~ I know the drive each day for a week all the way here was a bit of a jaunt, but you guys are worth it to us! Thanks!
