    Default The camp

    We got a little place that is actually ours as some of you know . And to be sure its breaking my little piggy bank
    but I thought I might show a few photos of how its shaping up . I bought an old travel trailer from a bud for 1500 and put up a 20 x 40 concrete slabbed pole barn over it for an additional 8500 as a new spot to for us to camp when we hang out there .
    might have to slow down on the cash bleed as I am a working joe and 10k put us in the eat beans and rice plan for a few weeks
    I have to run the water and electric but here is what we got so far .
    and yes they got one concrete truck stuck in the sand out there ...lol
    stay tuned and have a great day

    Not sure the pole barn roof was a good deal, but probably so because of the location. But the camper looks like a steal. Lucky you. Won't take long to catch up. Beans and rice are good anyway, having them today with a bbq meatloaf.

    the slab cost 4000 and I got 2 bids that didn't know each other at that same price . the structure was built on the heavy side with heavier than the norm steel so it possibly will withstand a big storm . I was told it was going to be around 10,000 to get built like I specified .
    I have heard from several folks it was a pretty good deal but I am like you on the ouch part for sure .
    the lady that I got the rv from wanted 5000 but I told her no thanks and she had to move it off my friends property .
    he gave her 1500 for it to leave it where it stood and sold it to me with a get it off my place condition attached .

    Nothing like a lil place in the country. Ours was abandoned in a tiny hamlet and they were going to bulldoze but my buddy saw it's potential and we have rehabbed it. Couple of the locals think we were robbed at what we paid and I replied we thought we stole it so it's a fair deal. 6k but property taxes are a killer. was $9 first year!

    course you are enjoying it already and can live off the hogs and deer meat you kill there. Plus the fish goes well with rice and beans!

    Have seen those metal buildings where you have a living quarters with two door garages for less than $10K but don't know what foundation cost would be.

    the buildings they offer as kits that cost like that are not near tough enough to stand being on a hill in west texas . I looked at lots of them and the steel is much thinner even if you but the beefed up version for about 50% more than the advertised cost and when you enclose one in that county the downside is its worth 150 a square foot in tax value now out there . travel trailers are not taxable as of now out there .
    the internet research said a concrete slab 6 inches thick was on average 5 dollars a square foot , I had an 800 square foot one made ,hence the 4,000 for the slab .
    according to the folks I know that put up these types of structures for what I had built in this area it should have run about 10,000 total and the county tax assessor told me that same figure when I asked about how much my taxes were go up .
    I did lots of research on it before I built it and I was astonished it was going to be as costly as it was for a slab and a heavy duty pole barn . but in the end I guess you get what you pay for .note the monster oak tree the storm took out last week at my gate 400 feet from the structure that has no damage .made me sad that oak was an old timer and a deer magnet in the fall and now its a large stump ...west texas gets rather windy sometimes
