    Can't wait until next month!

    I have read everything I can read on here in last 6-9 months and have learned quite a bit, the amount of new posts is so small in this forum that I am chomping at the bit to get to the member's side to get some real "meat & potatos"! Jan. 15th can't come soon enough!

    ramblin

    I loved those teasers before I took the class! I did read the members forum 2-4 hours a day after taking the class. Still average 3 hours a week ;)
    love the RPSL teaser pic. I didn't use a Lull, I used the FORCE :


    well maybe the force of a 75 ton Terex crane, but it was awesome watching that log hover 100' over my driveway ;)

    i know..

    there is nothing like the site of a huge log dangling from a lifting strap 25ft in the air. LOL.. and what about the kooky way we end up lifting our 24ft long 4x12 rafters?? : ))))

    rafter or battering ram?

    That's almost as, ummm, 'creative', as RockClimbers RPSLs on cabin #2...
    Dare I ask HOW or Where were you unstrapping those? You're a braver man than me...
    I wish I had time to stain mine on the ground... I was racing winter....

    Yep...those are teasers

    Yep...those are teasers alright! Can't wait to see what all is over there on the member's side! I found some info on another website that referenced a lot of LHBA material last night. These folks had taken the class back in 2001 (I think) I was kinda shocked at was was on there since it seems everything is "top secret" and there are rules against that. But they were true to form in urging folks to "take the class". They told quite a bit about the class and notes they had taken in class, tool lists, etc. I'm sure you "old-timers" have probably already seen it though. It looked like good info and got me fired up even more. We will probably start looking at land as soon as we get done with the class. I've been land searching for months on the internet, but waiting until after the class to actually go look. I don't want to get attached to a piece of land only to find out after the class it wouldn't be the right buy. We hope to find 100+ acres on which to construct our dream home. Ah...anticipation!

    Three things to ask 'em...

    In class there will be three things to ask you instructors about:

    1... How to pick your helpers...


    2... How to choose your ridgepole...


    3... How to choose the most important part of your build... Your BANKER...

    Sounds like good

    Sounds like good advice...especially about the helper! We wouldn't want any "seedy" characters such as that pictured! LOL
