Today’s house pics

on September 5, 2014

Rain on, rain off. Rain on, rain off. That is how today’s weather went. 

There doesn’t appear to have been any action on our construction today, and that’s fine. The painters will be there before we know it; I don’t know if anything needs to done before then. Time will tell.

Our site supervisor asked us yesterday if we wanted to keep the surplus bricks, so of course we said yes. Otherwise they would be going to the dump. I’m sure we can find a use for them, there are a few piles of them around the place. And we are paying for them in our contract price, so they are ours.

Anyway, here are today’s pics. Only a few today, you saw so many yesterday.

2. Front centre third of the house. I think some of those bricks will be used on the pillars of the porch to be built.

3. Drainage is crucial when you are dealing with reactive soil. It’s known as black soil.

extra drainage was put in to allow water to get away. reactive soil.

Back with more when there’s more to show.
