Construction Update ~ Wk 3

This was a very productive week!

We had two more loads of dirt brought in for the shop area to finish preparing it for the cement.

Then, the plumbers came in to do the rough in of the pipes for the shop and the downstairs part of the addition.  We will be adding a full bath downstairs, full bath upstairs, and a half bath in the shop.

After the plumbers finished their part,  we had the inspector come out for his approval and the termite people out to spray the the foundation areas before the concrete.  Next, they finished the prep work for the foundation.  Inspector came out for another approval.

We had a little rain while they were pouring the cement but not enough to bother the process.  The next day we had a down pour which is why you see water on the foundation that is now ready for the next steps.

Awesome!! It was so neat to watch when we did it and I bet your kids had fun checking it all out. Was there a spot for them to carve their names in?
