Construction 101 so... "let's have a party!"

...this was last Friday: a good sized hole where the deck and the memories once where! Today, the men and the trucks greatly enlarged the hole and got rid of the concrete wall. The hole is deeper; squared off and forms are laid for concrete. A new crawl-space was placed under existing stucture; and Hubsy (mine) crawled into that to do something "electrical". The plucky homeowners / Gardeners bravely invited the whole tribe of "high-chairs" and their Mommies for chocolate-chip pancake breakfast so the kids could watch the work (from the window). I think the Mommies took off and went shopping for fabric--it was pretty noisey around here. But the digging is over now. I think "concrete-pouring" is next. Stay tuned...

  1. Barb, thank you for the documentation. It is fun for us to be sidewalk superintendents from 700 miles away. Tom and Cheri Dueber
