    I booked the LHC several years ago and couldn't make it. Had work hassles, then an accident/surgery and a break up so I figure I am overdue to come over by the end of this year I would love to be the first!!!

    I think some of that eucalyptus that grows as straight as drill pipe would make a great house.
    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.

    I'm not sure I've ever met an Australian before (except Keith Urban at the mall once, and he denied that's who he was). Then I met two this week... My neighbor 2 doors down and his dad that recently moved here. He was telling me about his bitumen (sounded like "bitch you men") driveway. I had no idea what in the bloody hell the bloke was talking about, apparently that's asphalt. I got a laugh out of bitumen being the same thing as asphalt... There's a joke there somewhere.

    hahaha 'bitch you men' is exactly how we pronounce it
    Aussie accent is pretty harsh on the ears, even when we are trying to sound fancy! lol

    True LHN! How is your build going? I haven't been here for a while

    Well, it has only been two years since your last forum post. I'm thinking our place looks about the same as it did. We were all set to move in last Christmas but decided to wait til the place is liveable wit a Certificate of Occupancy instead. Currently we are at this stage of the build.

    Deedee, Try not to think too much about the pace of my build. It is discouraging to some folks, and your pace will be different. I am retired now and I waste time as I build at a feverish pace, enjoying it all the more.

    Take the class.
