For those of you that are wondering why there is not a Kitfox 1 flying around in Iowa this is why. I finally have the time to build a spec house this winter. This is something I have always wanted to do But I am always busy building for others. So Here is the lot my wife and I bought It has a nice view of the golf course.

Wow, that is some interesting dirt you have around there.  Straight sidewalls on the dig.  Looks like you dug it with the skidsteer??  Nice the way you have the bottom so nice and flat as well.  So much easier to work the forms and such.  All poured out also.   I love the smell of concrete in the morning.  (wish I had $100 for every load I emptied)  You are going to have a fun fall.  Stay busy and beat the winter??  Looks good.  JImChuk

How about a little education for a machinist from you Home-builders - Just what is a "Spec House"?  Does this mean that all of the houses there are exactly the same?  I have owned several different types of houses and have no idea if any of them were Spec Houses.  Looks E$pensve!   Thanks,  EDMO

Ed,

I believe Spec means Speculative.  He is building the house with no buyer yet, hoping someone will like it after it is built.  For a builder, there is the possibility of making a lot more money than building a house under contract.  There is also the possibilty of losing money.

Thanks Mark,  I thought it had something to do with the blueprints or materials being Specified by someone in charge of the area.  Your definition makes sense to me.  I may have owned some?  EDMO

Correct building to sell on the market. Cross your fingers some body will drive by and like it.

Any good jobs around there besides making moonshine to put in the gas tanks?  Maybe some farmer who likes to play golf?  ;<)  EDMO
