We got back yesterday after being gone a week, expecting the see the excavator far along in the list I presented him almost three weeks ago. As of when we had left, he hadn't been there in a week and a half despite promises to do so. During the week we were gone we learned he had spent the day before our arrival backfilling the back of the house, bringing it up to near where it needed to be. That was it. The side of the house that was a top priority was still vacant of any fill. And all of the other items on the list were not touched, including backfilling the water line, important as it is freezing at night.


Enough is enough. I called the excavator that had brought over the hammer during the initial excavation. He came over this morning, looked at everything that needed to be done, gave me a price that was not far off of the other guy's, said he'd start Monday and it would take him a week. Backfill, driveway, septic. I told him to line everything up he had a deal. Now, I expect it might take two weeks as he has to pull a septic permit, but to get the rest done in a week is fantastic. He actually called tonight and said he'd get somebody over in the morning to start.

Now I go tell the other guy he's done and he gets all pissed! Asks me why I need this done so soon? So soon? I've been waiting months, and getting nothing but promises to come while he keeps taking other jobs, milking mine. Right there I knew I made the right choice.

Meanwhile, the framer and his crew continue on the decks, finishing the west side and the SW front on both levels. They started the SE front this afternoon. They are really coming out nice, eight foot deep on the front of the house and twelve on the west side.

I'm continuing to apply scratch coat ever so slowly, but I'm making a dent in it.
