Re: New house for the herd

Looks great so far! My dad & stepmom live north of you near Sandpoint ID. I love it up there!!! I’d love to move out of the humidity belt and be up there.

Re: New house for the herd

Thanks for the compliments. I need to update my profile, I live in Island Park now. And yeah, it’s been cold the last few days. Too cold for October. Feels more like January.

When I was younger I thought about living in a tee-pee. But I was in San Diego, where you could. They dont make garage tee-pee's though so thats out.

Re: New house for the herd

Well, we survived the winter. I got it enclosed with the garage doors on. Getting the floor poured in the next few weeks. Then insulation and lean toos on both sides. I’ll post some more pics soon.

Re: New house for the herd

Here is the progress. Getting ready to pour the floor. It will be 5” with radiant heat. Extra rebar and welded wire for the lift bases.
Any suggestions for more improvements?

Re: New house for the herd

We got the floor poured last week.
Now I have a quick question. Who has used a concrete Densifier? Have you liked it better than an epoxy finish?
Any suggestions or recommendations? The floor is 1700 sq ft.

Re: New house for the herd

I don’t have any new pics. We had to move a bunch of stuff in for the winter so progress has been slow.
I was able to get the lean too on both side before winter hit. And I put metal on the ceiling.
I’ll get some current pics soon.
