I'm working on the concrete slab for our retirement home. Forgot my beautiful wifes advice n didn't try n get the 2" thick pink board foam insulation early. Wasn't any in the state except for 300 miles away. Except for the ones that were 20 bucks a sheet more at a local place. Kinda like being over a barrel n get gouged.
Good fortune did shine through though,,seems lowes go a load over night. I was able to save 1600 bucks. If you all are planning on building on the cabins get your materials in. Beautiful wife is ordering electrical stuff from the net,, which I don't like. But holley molley when you live where competition for building materials is hard, getting the job done gets worse.
All squeeked by n we're rolling along. Hopefully I can get out to the cabin n finish all the major building stuff while the slab is curing.
Life in the last frontier, gotta go while the suns shining.
And that's all day long
