Another update! My wife and I just found out last night that we got our approval to build a house! We are doing it, we will be signing paperwork later this month!

On a sad note that may mean for the next 4-5 months posts will be even fewer then they have been, but on the bright side once I have my own garage I can really pick things back up!

Building a house is sooooooooooo much cooler than building a 401!!!! Congrats to both of you!
House poor is better than Jeep poor! You gonna start a build thread for the house? you should...

HAHAHAHAHA depends on who you ask, my wife would agree with you! I might say otherwise, except for having a garage will make this all the better.
I can't argue with house/jeep poor! I will post pictures of it going up over the next months, probably with a Wedding Wagon in the foreground as to not break any thread rules (obviously knowing you guys aren't that crazy strict)

Hey congratulations! You can't live in a wagoneer.... Well not comfortably anyway. What part of OR are you building in? I moved from there 5 years ago. Good news on the house.

Fantastic! Good area too. I moved 5 years ago from the (PDX) Forest Grove area. Portland was getting to be to much for us. Take lots of pictures to look at later. Plus alterations too. Seeing interior walls stuff when you want to run wires or cut something, pictures are handy.
Congrats!!

YES!!! Lots of pictures! When our house was being built I went out at least once a week (usually a couple times a week depending on what was going on or being built at the time) and took pictures. I reference those pictures at least once a month, now. Get pictures of things like where pipes run through the walls and foundation, where wires run, direction of joists, where gas pipe lines run, Where/what brands HVAC parts are there, where are the plumbing accesses, what plumbing is connected to what (like what is the highest point of your sewer lines, is your washer hot water line the same as your shower line), how the bathroom fan exhaust is routed, etc. better to take too much than not enough.

No joke, you will use these allllll the time. Want to put on a lawn sprinkler system? Sure is nice to know where your water enters your house without digging holes. Want to hang a heavy shelf? Sure is nice to know what you are drilling into in your wall. Shower is backed up? Sure is nice to be able to trace the plumbing without digging holes on your walls.

Good ideas.

When/if I build my dream house it'll be on a raised foundation a roof with some pitch. I hate having to go up in the attic of this house with its dem 3-on pich.

Thanks so much guys!!
I will be sure to take lots of pictures then. We are so excited to finally start this new chapter in our lives, this house will be amazing for us and give us and our two dogs some more room. We never would have thought that building a brand new house was in our price range but here it is!

This build is not exactly our dream house, but will still be amazing.

Our end goal is to use this as a stepping stone in 5-7 years to buy 3-5 acres of property and build a house of our own design on!

Gongrats on the house. Keep the updates coming on the house and/or Jeep. But I will say one thing. Moving sucks But it is one way to clean out the clutter of stuff you haven't touched in a while lol.

But remember, when you finally get your dream place, the shop has to be twice as big as the house. It's the rules.

The wife is well aware that there will be a big shop in the future haha but she is on board as long as the Wagon has a spot in it!

Thanks rws31! not alot of room for clutter in our 2 bedroom apartment but amen on moving, I have moved from apartment to apartment alot recently and am for sure tired of it!

First quick update on the house, still no permits yet but should be getting them this week. Still just an empty lot.

Second had a small adventure this weekend up to Washington to pick up some Jeep parts!

Found a guy selling hub covers in the 3 screw on the outside of the wheel style (which is one of the last things I needed) AND 2 grills, 1 in the Egg Crate (boobie) style like I have but in way better condition and 1 Razor grill that is in amazing condition. Sold me both for $45 a piece which I though was pretty good!

First pics are of me trying to fit them in my car because I didn't think about how wide they actually are

Next the beauty shots!

[IMG]IMG-2664 by Taylor Poppitz, on Flickr[/IMG]

The junk in the bottom corners of this grill is just dirt.

[IMG]IMG-2665 by Taylor Poppitz, on Flickr[/IMG]

Still would have to convince the Wife to change to the Razor Grill, here it is sitting on the rig. I honestly can't decide which I like better, if I was going to change the grill I think I'd go with the Rhino. Anyway...

Boobie! hands down! Nothing against the razor, (I really like the razor) but there are not a lot of boobies out there and it makes it more unique to you. Either way you are golden but my worthless vote is for the boobie...

Also, while the progress on the Wedding Wagon has slowed. I am preparing myself to have a garage of my own for the first time in my life! Whoa Hooo!

Here is some frames I bought and started modifying to build some work benches. I have some really nice table tops (well nice for a work bench) but they are heavy duty and should hold up to a 401 engine block being slammed on top these will be 60"X30" tops with a slightly smaller frame so I can clamp stuff to the edge if needed. I am also putting a half shelf underneath.

First cuts!

I appreciate the vote Marc! I agree, there are not that many that I see either. Another reason to keep it.

SCORE !!!
you got a deal on those parts !

if you ever want to polish the razor
I used easy off oven cleaner and an S.O.S. pad

repeated several times till anodized coating was off
then polished with mothers billet metal polish

on FSJ parts fitting in a vehicle,...

when I was transporting my wagoneer headliner
I found out that there is not many things a wagoneer headliner
will fit into, other than a wagoneer !!!

I transported it in a 78 K-5 Blazer, Good it was in 2 pieces.

thanx for the photos/update on house and FSJ
