This week, especially the last couple of days, has seen major activity at the house. For two days we had ten people working with three pieces of earth moving equipment, multiple saws operating, nail guns blasting, generators going - you get the point, a flurry of activity.


Howard and Todd installed blocking and insulation between the floor joists where they met the wall, while I was cutting the blocks and insulation to throw up to where they stood on scaffolding. Excavator Kyle returned with his crew to backfill and compact the first floor. Concrete John and his crew were feverishly setting the second level, with all the lintels over the six windows, the two French doors and the stairwell opening, as well as having to make and set the rebar cage for the bond beam the engineer required for the next level of floor trusses. Overall, we remarkably stayed out of each other's way for most of the process.

It is wonderful to have the first floor (mostly) backfilled as getting into the second floor was becoming a challenge because of the height. We can now enter through a side door. 

It's been hard to get this out as at the end of each day we are dog-tired and right now we need to get to the site as there are a couple of last minute things I want to check before they start pumping concrete for the second floor in a about an hour. Pics later!
