Best of luck with this endeavor. One day you'll thank yourself for all this headache/hard work .
It's Sunday evening (about an hour ago) and my foundation guy calls me from jail. Says he needs $451 to get bailed out.
So, he says if I'll come down and pay it, he will finish all the rebar work tomorrow, arrange for the inspection, and have it poured on Tuesday. (We'll see.)
I still owe him $1,200 of his original bid, so I went ahead and got him out. (Am I nuts for doing it?) I told him no more money until it's finished and cleaned up. (I am paying the for the actual concrete separately from him.)
Mike, I wish you worked in San Angelo!
Hmmm... Just looked at the forecast. A 50% chance of rain tomorrow and 20% on Tuesday.
