New Home For TT's (pics)

Ive owned about s of an acre next to my house for 10-12 years and Ive done nothing with it except keep it mowed and plant a few pine trees. A few years ago I decided that I should build a pad for the tt , so I started planning and saving. Finally reached the point that we could get it done.
Ive been busy with this project for the last month and finished up today. Because of imposed budget cuts by my DW I was only able to have the cover built with the back gables and a few side panels. As time allows and when the budget freeze is lifted, I will add more side panels myself. At least for now the tts will be under cover.
The next few post will show pics of before, during and after.

Here are a few before pics. The lot is 75 wide x 430 deep.

These pics are of the electric I had installed. The electrician installed a 100 amp disconnect next to the meter on the house. He buried the line 2 deep in conduit. The pedestal has 20 amp, 30 amp and 50 amp breakers and plug ins. Its located at the back of the pad and is inside the cover so I can easily hook up if/when I enclose the cover.

Heres the cover being built. Its 18 wide x 41 long and the sidewalls are 12 tall with a center height of approx 14, so my AC will easily clear and I will be able to open the slides. The lien to at the back right is 12 wide x 21 long and the roof slopes from 12 to 9. I can pull the pup out from under and set it up on the pad if I need or want to.

The completed job. Of course I will fix it up here and there, every now and then.
The LaCrosse is currently at the dealers getting some minor warranty work. I figured now would be a good time to have that done while the pad and cover is being built. I should be able to pick it up by the end of this week. Cant wait to see how she fits.

I'm jealous of both the 3/4 acre next to you and the new building, and I vote for a congressional lift on the budget to finish it for you!
