  • English is not my 1st language so I miss some of what you say in your videos. I’ve been wondering the amount of the crushed stone the projects need, not only this one. For example this over 1000 tons! Though I am not sure if the unit is the same for you as what it is for me. 1 ton = 1000 kg. The material seems quite a lot the same as what it is in where I live. For that we usually have from 0 to 16 mm or from 0 to 32 mm (and anything between). I also was thinking the cost of the material. I have paid about 8 to 10 € per ton (about 9 to 12 dollars I guess) and that is only the material. Then the transportation cost comes over that and it depends on the distance. For this project I also thought that there are no pipes underground for the rain water. Is it not a problem? Thanks for the exellent videos.

  • Did you know that the self storage unit business got its start in the US around 1964 and now there is over 2.3 billion square feet of storage space. With an annual revenue of $39.5 billion. Who knew building small metal garages next to each other would be so profitable. FYI, a few smaller storage businesses existed before 1964, but they say that 1964 was the year it became recognized as a mainstream business.

  • I live in Kalamazoo, MI. they are currently widening I-94 between Portage Rd and Sprinkle Rd. It looks like the are totally tearing out the original 1950-60's era exits to update them into the 21 century. Their first project objective. They brought in a few Volvos with thumbs to start clearing about a mile worth of trees and brush in the south side of I-94. These guys were nowhere near as quick and efficient as Chris. Of course, they are paid by the hour with Whitmer dollars.

I am not making myself out to be an expert, I'm pointing out this is shoddy work if finish grade is supposed to be firm and unyielding, and perfectly fine work if there is no compaction specification. If you had better reading comprehension you would already know this, and if you had construction experience you would already have noticed the things I pointed out. Basically, you're demonstrating your complete ignorance and lying about what I said. Well done.

You come on here criticising someone’s work, a bloke who has made enough of a success to have bought a fleet of his own machines, bought a farm and built a house, and you’re making yourself out to be the expert here? And yet you have absolutely no videos of your own to demonstrate this expertise you claim. I think we can all just ignore your bollocks as you clearly have no idea what you are talking about. Don’t forget to slam the door on your way out.

    • I’m sitting here thinking the same thing Dave. For Pete’s sakes man, we have interstate highways that weren’t built with this much groundwork and a foot of substrate underneath of the concrete or asphalt!! Maybe if Chris would get some of these state and federal contracts, our roads and INFRASTRUCTURE would hold up longer than three years without having to be replaced again!! I keep wondering just what in the hell is going to be inside these storage units that they need a base that is literally better than our highway systems, better than any house built in the past 100 years etc, or did this customer have a case of expansive soils at this particular location and they were required to cut it out and build a good base?? There’s got to be a good reason to spend more money in your groundwork than what the completed project from concrete up is going to cost cause this work ain’t cheap at all!! I’m sure Chris has explained why somewhere and I just haven’t got to it yet but it’s a beautiful job, that’s for damn sure!! Well done Chris!!
