Your site is helpful and an encouragement for all. Thank you so much for building it. :) You have no idea how helpful it has been already, and I am just in the very beginning stage of the building process.

Framers are still at work on getting the exterior walls up on the fourth floor. They had gotten the two end walls up earlier. Today, they got the rear wall up, and two wing walls on the front are ready to raise. Last Friday they set the rest of the sill plates on the top of the third floor for the beams and the roof trusses that sit there. 


Sandra and I took a few days off and returned to the job site today. I had an idea to see if I could skip getting a jackhammer to break up the blowout that covered up the holes in the retaining wall. Those holes were for drainage, electric and fiber. Decided to see if I could break it up with the hammer drill I have. It took nearly all day, but I finally got it cleared and could stuff the 6" PVC drain pipe through and cleared the other three inch lines that were intact. Tomorrow I'll haul the 18-foot piece of 6" PVC up and around to the backside of the wall, connect a elbow to it and the piece that I pushed through the wall and strap it to the wall. With that in place I'm one step closer to being able to get that area backfilled. I do need to run the electric and fiber conduits. Hopefully I can get those in place this week.

Excavator Kyle has not showed up to dig the water line. Hopefully tomorrow. I think I have all of the materials to get that in place once the trench is dug.

Final electrical inspection on the meter base and disconnect took place yesterday. Waiting for the utility to place the meter and we'll have temporary electric.

Waiting on pilaster block I ordered three weeks ago. Need to get that set. Now it's going to be here on Monday. Argh! 

Waiting on another quote for the metal roofing. A lot of waiting these days. There are so many things that are in queue that things being late are going to cause problems.
