What Things Cost

Hi Folks,

This won’t be a philosophical post about costs, but a statement of actual costs to date.  So far I’ve spent just over $29, 000 – mainly for my truck and trailer and associated fees and repairs.  About $4000 has been spent on things toward the actual building – mainly $2500 for my windows and around $500 for a workshop with the Tumbleweed House Co for me and my architect/engineer.  I found the workshop helpful, but I’m not sure Scott (my engineer) did.
