Hi Leon
My wife is doing very well thanks. She's a great gal and was recently honored. Here is a link to her newspaper article.

The rest of the family is doing great also. I have a three month old grand daughter who I haven't seen yet. But my son and his family will be home for Christmas for the first time in six years. He and his wife are in the Air Force. He has been doing some great things for his country in the past year. I am glad there are people like him. I wish others understood reality a bit more.
Life is good.
Thanks for asking

Hey Tom: Thanks for posting the photos, they look great.
Looks like the MOAL is running to spec and kicking serious butt. You'd have had a hell of a time getting that entasis right without being able to turn the blanks. Looks excellent.
I'm thinking this place is big enough to carry a couple of super tall, curved staircases in the entry foyer. Any chance of that? Please tell me they didn't give away the stair work.
Looks like big fun, Tom. Take lots of pictures.

So, how many s/f does 2,500 yards of concrete make? <thud> 3-4 acres, eh?

...or more importantly for us WW's how many BF of concrete:
2500y^3 x 27f^3/y^3 x 12bf/f^3 = 810,000 bf?
That's a bunch of board feet of concrete!

Let's hope one knows how to sharpen one's edges, wot? Since concrete is usually poured (in rich folks' homes) in 4-6" depth, cut that down a bit. Hmm, mortising that would be, er, kinda rough, even with timberframing tools.

Fur sicher, fur sicher. Even more interesting is a rough calculation of the cost of 2500 cubic yards of concrete. In the pre-inflation olden days, we used to figure $100/yard in place. Even at that low price, the mud in this joint comes to a minimum of a cool quarter Mil-a-buck.

I'm sure the rich dude got it for a cheaper price per cube. It helps when you buy the total output from a company for a week or three, y'think?

And you can safely round that to 1 million bf, since the 2500 yards is true, not nominal. (There is probably closer to 15 or 16 bf.ft^3.)

Well, let's see:
2,500 cu yds concrete = 67,500 cu ft concrete, which could make a 24"w x 12" d footer about 33,750 ft long, or about 6.39 miles.
Considered another way; If'n you laid out the footer to the proportions of a golden rectangle (1.62/1 approx), you would have a rectangle about 6,500 ft x 10,500 ft - which would make a damned nice shop.
Seems like a lot of crete until you consider the following:
Hoover Dam (including power plant, buildings, etc.)    4,360,000 cu yds.
The Pentagon                    435,000 cu yds.
Empire State Building                62,000 cu yds.

Not to mention:
