Apr-30 Monday

No work was done today. I assume that was the work of a thunderstorm that occured last night.

Again, no work was done today. Perhaps they're waiting for materials?

May 2 Wednesday

Hey, we got sand! It was like being at the beach... except, we're missing the ocean. The one thing that Boeing refused to give us in addition to our move package... I digress. At any rate, there is at least two dump trucks worth of sand in the front of our lot. This will be used to cover up our under the slab plumbing. Who knows, they could pour the slab tomorrow?

May 3 Thursday

They poured the slab today! Amazing, the amount of work they must have done. Not much more to say, other than we may begin framing as soon as next Monday!

May 4 Friday

As noted in the G+ post, they put in the etching so that the foundation would be less likely to crack. It has cured nicely, so they should begin work on framing after the weekend. Exciting stuff, eh?

the Week in Review
It was a big of a slow week in the beginning, but boy did things roll in the latter half. I expect that I will release part one of the time lapse video in a few weeks... not sure how things will work, but definitely won't happen until school's out.

I'd like to thanks those who have been emailing and contacting us. It is great to connect with you and know that you are following us and keeping us in mind just like we keep you in our minds.
