Waiting for weather

Filed under: Uncategorized — aroundthebend @ 9:12 am


Well, we’re still ready to pour, but the weather is not cooperating.  Showers, an hour here and there of sun, lots of wind makes concrete work too risky, so at 5:00 am this morning the pour is called off.  It is now booked for Monday….. 

In the meantime, Gerda and Marianne and Dennis begin to construct the box columns that will be used for framing the walls.

  1. i am amazed – it all does bring me back to when we built our house 15 yrs ago – it takes a lot of work and courage to each day want to go out there and do the job. especially when it is very hot!! i hope to be there probably on the september long weekend. Till then – eat well, get lots of rest and DRINK LOTS OF WATER!! 🙂
