    You must have some pretty talented friends and family members if that's what you mean by doing it yourself! Congrats!

    well they are going to finish the wiring this week I think then once it's inspected they can start insulating and then pine and sheet rock, the tank will be going by the stairs and we are putting a room behind it so I have a tank room for all the pluming and stuff... so as we get more done I will keep posting pics
