Basement done, Garage begun - now

The basement floor is done, except for sweeping.

On to the garage. They framed it
and poured the walls.....and when they took the frames down, Dave said, "where's the cutout for the door." AAUUUGGGHHHHH!!!! big deal, they cut them out. But they did forget. And when Dave told me, I wanted to run as far away as I could run, which isn't far because I can't run! But they don't know the last 'door story'...the one where I was up at 3:00 a.m. in the morning when he said, "They didn't cut out the door."

They poured the garage floor yesterday (Thu) and moved some dirt.
The pad between the garage and the house is a breezeway.
And the framers showed up and started the walls.

See that pile of wood to the middle left of the pic. That's the wood they refused to use. So, last night we went to Menards and bought some wood. Carter's was closed. And we took it to the land and unloaded it, but there are more walls up and we had to squeeze it through the slats onto the concrete. And my poor shug fell over a bolt because it was dark out and he is tired. He needs a break. We need a break. But it just moves so fast.
They are moving this pile of dirt today in front of the house. The septic guy is supposed to start today. Today is the last day for the concrete guys for a couple of weeks. And I should be out there taking pics of the dirt being moved, but I have a long list of stuff to do here, at home.
