I am beginning to have some growing hitch-itch. For non RVers hitch-itch is the desire and even yearning we get when we are off the road “too long” and want to get back to traveling and exploring. We still plan to head west after the house is rented.
I follow several blogs, a few of which are other RVers. All of them are in the southwest right now describing the beauty they are seeing and oh, how it makes me want to be there. I know we will and then the hitch-itch will diminish as we take to the wide open roads again.
Don’t get me wrong, we are really enjoying our time building our small house in Amite, the roads just calling!
Our son Chip joined his dad Saturday morning in raising the walls of our storage building. Here’s pictures of their progress:
Chip left after raising the walls to go to his church and work, so I helped hold the trusses in place for Roy to put the screws in.
Just a side note, this $998 storage building kit has now risen to over $1,500 and it’s not finished. In case someone is thinking of buying one like this, it is well worth it but it doesn’t come with any of the flooring, no shingles or roofing materials, no paint. And of course Roy upgraded lots of things like using screws instead of the nails it came with (several boxes of screws!) and using 3 dozen more metal braces than it came with, so this building will be around many years! He read a lot about the kit before we purchased it and was very impressed with how they constructed the walls, etc. and laughed when he read that it took someone over a week to build it. I’d estimate he’s at least 50 hours of labor into it now, guess the other guy was right!
