They have even less than the big box stores or Amazon. My fastenal DM friend was out here early yesterday morning bringing out a few knockdowns of blue bins and said they are having the same problems. It seems to be everywhere, except here and a very few other select small businesses. I have told countless peeps in person and on the phone, and as I have said in a separate topic about "Prices going up everywhere" 6 months ago, to the mentions in several topics where I mentioned "If you're gonna buy anything buy it now", and "I can see what's coming", I actually saw what was coming. I'm not sure why other execs or peeps didn't see it but that's their problem lol. :tounge2

Dad and I got the ditch dug and covered back up by the end of the day yesterday for the main to the electrical box. I also got a pic of the main Foreman of the Morton building crew in his "Super Morton Man" as I've been calling him shirt. He did a job for someone years ago that owned a t-shirt printing business and he made him a bunch of those shirts, pretty cool lol. :smile2

Here are the pics of the ditch and the reason why dad's place is listed as some of the best farmland in the US. It was a riverbed at one time and you can see in the pics that I dug down 2 feet for the pipe and it was all nothing but rich topsoil and not a single rock. :thumb1

Dad and I are gonna dig on the other end today and get the sewer and water pipe leads in the building so we can get the concrete floor poured. I'll get some pics of that in here later. The Morton guys got most everything done except the roof and a few other small things, and plan on being done today. They have been great to work with and even let me put in the porch light cans and run a lead wire for those before doing the soffit for the front porch. They will be coming back after I get the wiring all done, inside band lumber on for the walls, and interior walls put up to do the ceiling metal, Dad and I didn't think we could do the ceiling metal with just the 2 of us :thumb1

This is where everything is so far.

The electrical stuff from Amazon came in yesterday and Morton finished up a little after lunch time. It was nice to see everything I ordered in and everything we bought locally so far has all been made in USA. :woo

As soon as the Morton crews cleared out I started digging and getting the sewer and water lines in and set up so we can do the concrete. I was on the backhoe a little after daybreak this morning and just got back home. I dug so much yesterday and a lot of today that when I got ready to get in the truck and leave my first thought was to pull the stabilizers up lol. :laughing

It was a little over 100' but we went on down to the septic tank for the house to get sewer and water was close by so they will both be in the same ditch. Dad is headed out first thing in the morning to find a 3" 22.5 sewer elbow we need and I'll be there early to start putting together the water pipe and getting it set in the building before the rain comes in tomorrow. Hopefully the rain will hold out till late tomorrow like the weather ding a ling says but I'm not betting on it so we're going like the wind... :tounge2

I've been running a little behind so this is yesterdays pics.
