Another wedding to go to, this time in Texas. Will spend a few days helping my brother in law start building a small rental house outside of Austin. Spent the day setting the piers and tomorrow will begin the floor framing. 


But before we left Angel Fire, several things have progressed. The attics got insulated to R 49. More deck railing has gone up though much more yet to do. Gas is connected to the furnaces but I’ve still got to finish making the final electrical connection to each. Mechanical guy has finished his work on them. Will pick up some smart thermostats and get heat on in the house when we get back. Now that the attics are insulated, I’m less concerned about the house getting below freezing in the short term. Last week when it got to8F, it was still reasonably warm the next morning even without insulation. But before long, the temperatures will get lower and heat will be necessary. Landscaping is dragging, but they started again on Friday. Promise they’ll be done by the time we get back in a week and a half. Somehow I don’t believe that but it but wouldn’t that be nice?!

Piers for the rental house. Used the existing slab from the house that was there before. Drilled holes for rebar, set block and filled with hand mixed cement. How did I ever think before that I had mixed my last bag
