It has been awhile from my last post. We have made some progress, not a lot, but some. Western Washington has been hit with just days and days of rain, I know that is not really news, but it is so wet and muddy nothing is getting done very quickly. The forms are all set, the local county has inspected and everything has passed, we should pour on Monday, March 20th, form striped the next day and then drainage and back fill. Framer is scheduled to start on the 27th.

We had a couple of problems, the first being incorrect grade for the wall. The foundation company placed the final grade too low, this would have not left enough room for the floor joists and a very tight, like no, craw space. I had asked my framer to check levels and grades and he caught it before the forms were set. But we had to excavate an additional 18" to make things work, that put us back about a week. It is so muddy the excavator operator was afraid of getting his track hoe stuck.

I still have to move the telephone and cable runs from the road to the house, last 10 feet or so, just a bunch of hand digging. The main electrical cables must be dug up and ready for the local power company to move to the new meter base location, that wont happen for a couple of months. Also, need to move the septic tank wiring and panel and a couple of conduits, one is for the generator and the other is the heat pump. Will be moving those wires inside and have already removed the sheet rock to make it happen. Most likely get to those smaller jobs done next weekend, I hear the rain is supposed to stop...
