The work on the house continues to go not as planned. We were suppose to have a company who can cut cement come and cut the foundation from the house so the old basement can be removed. We’ve been waiting for them for some time. No luck. Then we were told Thursday of last week – then we were told Monday as in yesterday…no show. Now we are told for sure tomorrow.
That brought our cement guy to the house to mark where they needed to saw.
Just check out the orange spray painted lines to see where they will be cutting.
Hubby is busy tomorrow and can’t get away so plans are currently that I need to be in town at least initially to make sure they get going. I just hate all of that but if it gets us a step closer I’ll do it.
In the middle of the conversation he informed me that the saw people need water to run their saws. WHAT?? We don’t have water to the house. Now what? I called Hubby and he called the neighbor and the neighbor said no problem, we’ll run a hose over. We honestly have amazing neighbors to the south of us.
While talking to the cement guy I questioned him…I tried to it politely but I’ll admit…I did question him.
So I asked what the next steps were with the house and when could I expect him to be back to pour the basement……He explained that his partner was on vacation. He had a basement to do in Elgin and one other basement but he might be able to bump the second basement…ah that would leave us at the end of the month…WHAT??? I am so disappointed. The end of the month. At the end of the month on July 31st it will be one year since we bought the house.
Can you believe we are only this far??
I can’t. The other day Kalissa’s boyfriend was at our house. I told him guess a date that we’ll move into the house…he said March 1st. Oh could it?? So blog readers…take a guess. What day do you think we’ll be in the house. Don’t be afraid to say any date…I think I am getting immune to being shocked.
Stop by tomorrow and I’ll update you and let you know if the saw guys actually showed up.
