Ever heard of, “All’s quiet on the Western front?” That is what our build site looked like this week. A lonely, desolate foundation sits and waits this week as the tumbleweeds blow lazily by…..there is hope on the horizon. “Do you really have tumbleweeds blowing by?”, a curious on-looker asks. No, but being in the middle of autumn, leaves are certainly starting to fill the foundation as we wait for the sub-floor and decking to arrive.
Thursday….there is a distant sound of a truck, a very LARGE truck heading up our road….is it?? YES, it is our truck….delivering our sub-flooring, right on time!!! Tomorrow the sub-floor contractor arrives to begin the work needed for the plumber and the decking.
Friday comes without a sound….you can hear the wind whistling through the trees, but there is no hammering, or signs of construction. The sub-flooring is not being installed today…but you know, that is OKAY…we’re sure they will show up on Monday. In the meantime, we decided to have some fun in what will be our backyard.
We decided to have a campfire and ate my grandma’s enchiladas (she taught me how to make these when I was about 16. I miss her) by the fire. Then we got a little creative with Skittles….
So, Sunday morning we were awakened by the sound of……CONSTRUCTION!! Whoohoo!! Okay, so we’re not great big fans of Sunday morning consturction sounds, but today was the exception. The contractor didn’t want to get us or himself behind schedule, so……HOORAY!! Tomorrow or Tuesday, the plumbing contractor is scheduled to do his thing in the crawl space areas, then the decking will go on…from there…things are going to dramatically change very quickly!!
