I can't believe that I actually won! This forum has been so helpful during the planning phases. We are about two weeks from moving in and we can't be happier! Thanks again for all of the support and guidance that the website has given us!

:-(. It’s time to say goodbye to the trustworthy machine that did sooooo much heavy lifting on this project. It’s been sold to a contractor in Albuquerque who does disaster restoration.  That includes a lot of roofs that need replacing after fires, and this machine should do very well helping them pull off the old trusses and hoist up new. Saturday morning, tomorrow, I’ll drive it down the mountain and load it upon a flatbed where it will be transported to it’s first project down there for the new owner.  


It’s a machine that we really could not have built the house without it.  The framer, the stucco guys, the roofer, the landscaper the rock guys and most of all - us! have relied on it to reach to the highest heights, lift some awfully heavy loads, emptied dozens of semi trucks.  And for all of that, we have paid very little.  Some maintenance items and fuel. It’s being sold for $500 less than I bought it for.  A pretty good deal in my estimation.  I would suggest than anyone building a housethat needs heavy equipment, think about buying used and reselling when done.  The equipment is valued by the hours on the machine, not the year and the number of hours one actually puts on it is really pretty small.  In my case, a couple hundred hours over two years.  That really didn’t decrease the value.  And for two years, it was at my complete disposal.  Rented, it would have cost $1500-$2000 a month.

But it’ll be sad to see it go.
