Beer fridge? You asked for things which you should not forget during the erecting of the structure. I feel like beer fridge and insulation/electric/lighting type stuff should be in an interior finishing thread.

I added the word erecting for you all to giggle at. Buncha 13 yr olds. 😁

Looks like my house appraisal is next Tuesday. Any tips for that?

Let the appraiser know about any work or improvements that have been done over the last 5 years. (Roof, plumbing, electrical or modernization) it can help either support a value or even tip it to a higher value if the comparable sales will support it.
