    If the integrity of the seat mounts and frame rail is not affected by the rust, I'd patch. Especially if you're not worried about aesthetics. I replaced my Swiss cheese floors mainly because the rust was in all the edges of the rail underneath and the front seat mount. I also cut the roof off so I needed the floors to be solid along with the addition of stiffening tubing. It looks great, but it's a lot more involved than patching. I have a cheap flux core wire feed welder you can borrow if you'd like. It's what I used to do my floors.

    All it needs now is garage doors, down spouts, some trim paint and a final inspection.

    So, after digging a trench 24" deep and 120' long and laying 2" conduit containing my electrical service line..... ...I was able to do this... ...and finally, some of this. Doing a little finish work inside while waiting for my stucco guy to get back to me. Garage doors are also on the "ToDo" list.

    Sounds healthy too. Always a good feeling when it runs for the first time. It’s no longer just a bag of parts. Well done sir!

    My first inspection went well. Only a couple of corrections needed. Add a few brackets to the shear walls and blocking. And add one concrete anchor. Inspector said he'd sign those off at the next inspection and gave the go ahead to install the roof and rough electrical. Took this pic this morning. With the roof and gutters installed, I'll be mounting electrical boxes and running wire soon. And I have a guy lined up to do all the stucco to match the house.

    It's come a long way in the last three months, but still a ways to go...

    Glad to see you’re back at it , Nathan. It is amazing how a simple thing like a broken stud can cause so much anguish. And I certainly understand how moving can interrupt a good build. It’s been almost four years since our move with no progress on the VR. Waiting for some dry weather so I can start framing the shop. Are you still local?

    Lumber arrived last Friday. Now if it would just stop raining long enough for me to do some framing.

    I though I was being flippant with that last remark. As it turned out only one of the concrete contractors, that had previously bid the project, even bothered to respond with their availability. One out of eight! I am however, very pleased with who I ended up using. Instead of questioning the over engineered nature of my plans (like most of the others did), he and his two sons simply built a massively strong foundation. Waiting now for our nephew, who's a general contractor, to create a materials list from my plans, so I can price the lumber.
