As we build our "Fortress of Isolation", Lisa and I are having a heated debate over which is slower. Turtles or Sloths. One thing we both agree on is that our house project is slower than both. We have been discussing amongst ourselves about these construction companies in our area. The building season is short, there is a ton of work to do and the fact that they keep telling us they are way behind for one reason or the other. What we can't figure out is,why can't they work on Saturdays if they are so far behind? None of them do and we have asked all of them. Weird. Work when there is work because you know you will be taking the winters off. Sorry for the rant.
13 days since my last post and I expected to have a lot of progress to report. There has been steps forward but it is the ole' hurry up and wait game. One day while we were waiting we got a surprise call from our plumber. He said he was in the building putting in the floor heat and he had a question. We really don't know why these people don't call us ahead of time to say they are going to be there on a certain day so that we can meet them. But he was out there which meant the concrete people had to have been out there also. Communication is a wonderful word when used properly. (I don't know if you can tell by now our frustration levels are getting higher.)
Sure enough, they had been there and by the time we got there they were gone. I guess we shouldn't have slept in that day.
The top picture is the barn floor with the rebar waiting for the concrete. The other picture is of the bungalow with the floor heat installed. So we were excited that we were going to get concrete any day now. Then mother nature had to throw a monkey wrench into the mix. Rain. We got a storm one night that dumped over 4 inches of rain on our property.
