    I haven't been to the State Fair in years just because of the heat but today its only going to be around 80 degrees so the wife and I are heading there in a bit. Our main goal is to stay away from the Midway Carnival but our second goal is to look at the real reason we have a State Fair. I plan on visiting with Dirksen Portable Buildings display. Loren has a nice 12 x 24 cabin he thinks I will like for my new hunting cabin on my place. He says he can get me a good deal on this one on display since it will be labeled USED. We shall see just how good of a deal he offers.

    We were the first ones in line! Always ate there each time that we've gone.

    As for the cabin....the one he had there had already been sold but it wasn't exactly what I wanted. We did pick out a style and color and decided on a metal roof plus added two more windows. Looks to be mid to late September before delivery and set up. 12 x 24 barn style with two loft areas.

    Yes.....$$$


    Didn't do the final numbers but it looks like around $5000 to $6000 delivered and set up. For the month of August you get a 5% discount which should cover the cost of the extra two or three windows that I want.

    Make sure one is big enough to put a window A/C in. You'll thank me later!

    Now I have to figure out how and who to contact to put in a buried power line from my pole to my new home away from home. To many trees to string overhead lines to cabin so a power line needs to be buried to the cabin from the power pole. Digging a trench will be a chore with all the rocks a trencher will find along the way. Rough estimate from pole to cabin will be 50 to 60 yards. Right now I have a meter and a breaker box big enough for a home and have two pigtails below the breaker box able to handle 4 plug ins. One a 20 amp and the other if memory serves a 50 amp. No idea who in that area does this kind of work but maybe if I contact Como (power company) they can recommend someone that can do it right.

    Rent a mini excavator and do it yourself. If you think you have alot of rocks, a mini would be better than a trencher.

    Are different County regulations different from one another as to the required depth of a PVC pipe with the required electrical lines inside? I have no idea as to what the regulations are for Morgan County. For the most part they are pretty lax for out in the sticks like my place is located. I know around the lake things are a different ball game.

    From what I have heard, that is more regulated by the electric company. You said you already have a meter on the pole, right? If that is the case, I think 24" is the regulation. But I'm not in Morgan county. I'm sure someone on here has that info. The electric company will only regulate it if it is the main line, before the meter. But they should be able to tell you what is required.
