By car - it'll take them 2-3 hours depending on how hard they whip the horses.

 

Around here in Wisconsin usually they are picked up by truck, car and taken to the job sight and taken back home at the end of the day>>>>But yes I would look at getting Amish people to do the work for building.  They take great pride their work>>>I had them do all are cabinet work in our kitchen when we remodeled and are having them make me a new Medicine Cabinet right now>>>Nice thing is I have at least 3 places within 10 miles that do this type of work with the cabinets and plenty that do building construction also>>>>>

Might want to check into local building codes, and see if they allow such setup?

That's pin it or die type stuff there.. Nothing worse than coming around a corner and seeing a freekin pond that's the entire way across the trail and 50 yards long. Oh and of course the lip at the exit point on the pond is about a foot high straight up and your wife is right behind you on her sled and you say "PIN IT and KEEP IT PINNED!"... and she says "what?".

Tic knows how to pin it!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I've seen Amish builders in action. I didn't see a spectacular amount of pride in work. I just saw a complete disregard for safety. Just a bunch of semi-inbred disposable kids running around on and under rafters while an older guy looks on.

Thats how every job ever got done before OSHA.  Bottom line is they get the job done.  Nevermind the missing limbs..

Theres a large building contractor in my area that hires a bunch of Amish. The work they do is complete "edit for bad language".

We have both but we have one of the largest Amish populations in America.  I always say you can have good or cheap not both.

I'm sure that's generally the case, but not everything about different cultures is laudable. Don't the Amish run a large % of the nation's puppy mills?

We have lots of Amish and mennonites. They hide behind their religion to keep from paying their fair share in taxes.

You don't have to be Amish to hide behind religion as a way of avoiding taxes.  Lots of good people of all faiths, use all sorts of excuses and ploys to avoid paying taxes.   That's the American way.

What benefits to the Amish and other traditionalist Anabaptists get from our tax dollars? I can't think its all that significant. There are plenty of other more deserving targets of political ire.

How random, “ Garage Apartment/house thing” thread turns into a debate about Amish people....
