Notes, 16 Nov. 2015

The work week begins with the construction team continuing to build the forms for the garage foundation, filling sandbags, and, for the first time, compacting roadbase. Steel rebar is scheduled for this week, to be inspected possibly as soon as Thursday or Friday, depending on weather.

The forecast calls for heavy rain. We don’t want water flowing off the roof down to the dirt where the kitchen deck stood until it was demolished last week. All that water would quickly pool and, dammed behind dirt berms, would become a lake, spilling into the house. Ron asked the construction team to lower the elevation of the exposed dirt and to remove the berms by Bobcat.

That was fast. Steven called for this service only Friday of last week.

Now everyone can plug in at the rectangular box below the meter.

And, with the meter out of the way, we can now demolish the back wall of the existing garageĀ as we construct the new third bay.
