Timber trusses finally made it today after delays related to getting a wide load permit.  No one understands it.  The roof trusses were wide loads and a standard wide load permit was fine. But a police officer with the commercial vehicles office decided he wanted an escort for the load, in direct opposition to the requirements that are laid out already regarding size.  I don't get why someone can simply think they can run over statutes and then get away with it.  And to top it off where he indicated the short distance where he wanted the escort, someone in the office writes it up as an escort for the entire 4 hour drive.  You can't fight city hall they say and the shipper finally gave up and got an escort for the truck.  It's put us back two days at a critical time since the roofer is coming in a week and a half.


They arrived late today and I saw that one for the front of the house was not made correctly.  Looks like they made it according to an earlier design, rather than the last we had come to agreement on.  Have a call into the fellow and will talk to him in the morning.  Not a hard fix, but will require new material to be ordered and installed.  And it'll slow down the roofer.  

On other notes - the excavator has set the pump tank, and I have gotten the electrical and fiber conduits run from the retaining wall into the house.  (We still have to dig and run electrical from the meter to the front of the retaining wall.) this allowed more backfill to be placed and I can now set the window well tomorrow.  Backfilling will continue and should be close to be done by the afternoon.

About a hundred tons of road base were brought up to the site on Monday, which was spread yesterday, creating a great parking area at the house where we have easy access into the garages, plenty of space to maneuver vehicles, and a place where the crane can set up next week.  AND - cover much of the dirt the has been blowing lately. We still need probably another 75 tons to finish the parking area, and many times that for the driveway rebuild.

Road base spread. So nice to have a clean, flat surface to work on.
Timber trusses finally arrive!
