Well, I wish last week was more productive regarding our home build. Unfortunately, only a few, but important, things were done. Our PM told us that the framers were running a few days behind so they probably wouldn't start framing until Friday or Saturday. On Monday they applied the waterproofing to the basement walls and on Tuesday they backfilled around the basement. YAY! On Wednesday, all the lumber was delivered so I got pretty hopeful that they were going to start framing on Thursday....but, nope! Then, it rained on Friday...and Saturday....and Sunday (sad face). Needless to say, they did not start yet.
BUT, the nice thing is that Ryan homes hires local Amish men to frame their homes and they actually do part of the framing indoors and then bring to the job site. This means the wood spends less time outside in the elements. Great idea unless it pours rain for 3 days after they bring the wood. Anyway, these men have a great reputation for being efficient and accurate framers so that is a bit of a relief. Thinking of dropping by with donuts one day next week....just an extra incentive:)
