Build - Day 9 - July 20, 2011

First of all, I have to say that I am blown away by our construction crew. Historic flash flood lifting our dinette off the foundation? No problem, just a three hour delay. Record breaking heat wave the next day? No problem. Hard at work, as usual. I am seriously in awe of their ability to work THIS fast in such energy-draining conditions. There may be a popsicle delivery sometime tomorrow.

We had expected today to be a nice, slow day mainly letting the basement wall concrete cure. But, much to our pleasant surprise the crew started on the non-ICF walls today under the front and back porches as well as the garage walls.

When we arrived around 9 this morning, they already had a great start on the garage.
Cement quietly curing.
When we left, about 10 minutes later, these guys were getting blocks ready to start the front porch.
Back before lunch, the front porch is done, and the three-car garage was almost done.
Men at work.

Garage is done, and I can finally start to see the size of the house in proportion.
Getting ready for the subfloor!
Our future front entry.
Back porch foundation is done.
Coming up: sub floor.
