We have been very blessed with good weather!  Will it last for another week or two?  We (Ivan, Matt and Bob) spent the weekend getting the house ready for the second floor plumbing.  Unfortunately, we had our first accident/injury on the site.  Bob stepped on a sheet of plywood before it was fully braced.  He caught himself before going all the way through but bruised his ribs badly.  He's ok but sore.

Last weekend was spent putting up the steel joists and beginning the plywood inserts.  We finished both this weekend.  All the plywood (to support the concrete pour is down and fully braced.  It also has a thin coat of veggie oil to allow easy removal once the concrete is sufficiently cured.  The bad news is that the plumbers are overbooked and bumping us out a week.  At 4,766 feet of elevation and as late into the season as we are it is getting scary as to whether or not we can get the slab poured.  The long range forecast is for rain this weekend then clearing next week.  The concrete contractor has insulated blankets to cover and we can also put in some heat below.  I guess we'll just keep moving forward using the extra time to plastic over the windows and doors, tidy up the job site, get all tools covered and further prep for the pour.  Enjoy the pics. - Craig
