You have to be grinning ear to ear, seems like it's taken a long time. More details please.
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

Shop's already finished and filled.  This is the 3 br house.

Here's a pix of the shop and the tractor I used to dig the basement.  Pix of basement walls was shot from in front of shop, about where tractor is sitting.

Looking good. That was allot of digging but luckily easy digging. Here it's rock hard black clay or solid rock or a combination of the two hence basements are rare because the basement would cost more than the house to build... 

   A friend of mine in Oklahoma bought some property and it's two seperate plots. His shop is going to be built on one of them and the shop on the other. They said he can't build his shop on the other piece of property because it doesn't have a house on it. Now that's moronic...
