Well, I was hoping we would have the electricity to the welder and compressor. Two weeks!
Anyway, they have the sand in, the vapor barrier, and the remesh. Concrete should be here Monday (?)
I am going out and finding a couple more items to put on ebay.

Must come down. They dropped the house today! It finally feels like we are on the downhill run. I feel like it won't be long before I have electricity back to the air compressor and welder. I am anxious to get back on the 41.

It has been wet here. Wettest year on record through Jun 17th. Been hard for the guys to work. So two weeks have turned into three weeks and we are barely past half done.
The block perimeter is now set. The treated 2 x 4 sill plate is bolted in place. The repair work on some of the rotten sill plate and studs is complete.
It was interesting to see how the insert fireplace was installed. I had never seen one set in concrete. And the concrete slab came up with the chimney!

The city is going to have one last pass through to pick up the last of the ice storm damage starting next Monday. So we are cleaning up the trees in the back field. One left to go. It has 2" long thorns. I can hardly wait!
And one last photo of the jacked up house.

They jacked it up today. I doubt it will be done in two weeks, but maybe three? Anyway, it is good to see progress. Downside is that the compressor and the welder no longer have power, so I couldn't do too much even if I had the time. They should form and pour the "wall" tomorrow.
