Week 8 – Please stop raining!

WEEK 8 – Please, for the love of everything, let it stop raining! We’ve had a whole April and now May’s worth of cool, soggy weather, and anytime it’s ready to quit is good with us!

Despite the continual showers all week, we passed our foundation inspection and were able to start to backfill this week. That’s extra good news as it should help the lot continue to drain through all this rain, and admittedly while the dirt still mounded around the foundation are completely saturated mud piles, the actual foundation itself is very well sealed, and has tolerated the water just fine.

The walls and lumber on the other hand, have largely sat tarped much of the week. So with a break in the rain late in the week, Josh was excited and ready to start getting some of the framing started! A huge shout out to “the other Josh” and Ryan for coming over on Saturday to help move all the first floor framing lumber onto the site. If/when the rain finally stops this week, we’ll be ready to put the floor joists and sheeting down on the first floor!
