Well one more big event: The basement floor was poured today!

I had to wrap the plumbing pipes a little higher because the plumber didn't get it all the way above the slab. I also had to wrap the line that went through the bearing wall footing.

Got the termite pre-treat yesterday evening.

Met the framer today and went over some things. We are leaving the floor deck 3/8 inch low to allow for a backer board to give more rigidity when tile is installed. I stressed a lot of glue and screws on the deck so the floor doesn't squeak. I think I will put construction plastic on top of it to keep it dry if the monsoon storms come in.

Have wood ready to drop on Monday. Next week the basement will be framed and start backfill the following Monday.

I am getting the first draw of our loan. It is an 8 draw loan with two extra draws for septic and the basement. It should give us some cash to find good deals with.

This weekend we found a steal on a front door. We were going to get a 42" by 8 foot fiberglass door that looks like wood (same style as the one we got). It would have cost about $1,300 or so. We found a solid wood door 4'x8' and it came with the frame. He asked $1,000 and we offered $850 which he accepted. It is a nice and heavy door. They guy seemed to not want to let it go because he paid $1,000 for the stain alone. It will look nice in our home and give Audra the "Wow" factor she wants. It may be the only "Wow" item unless we find more deals, which we probably will.
