Once the slab was poured and polished we watched for the next step in the house building. Several of Patty’s friends said it could not be a CBS house at the price we were paying but yesterday’s delivery set our minds at rest on that point.
First Thursday a hugh truck arrived with what looked like nothing on it. He stopped took off his fork lift and deposited a bundle of rods and a roll of tar paper and left. That was all the action we saw that day. Friday this truck arrived early in the morning.
We all went out to watch but only James and I stayed to watch him unload. I guess Colby didn’t think a fork lift was a very exciting piece of equipment after all the big pieces have been here to watch. But James and I got the bench and sat right on the edge of our drive and watched him take of all these cinder blocks and another truck load later. James could picture how they would build Uncle Tyler’s house because they are so much like his lego blocks and he loves building a house with those.
It took a long time with that little fork lift to take all those blocks off.
Some of the blocks were stacked on the dirt and some right onto the slab, if I ever doubted it the slab was dry and set I had no doubles after watching him drive that fork lift right up onto the slab. We hoped they would start building today but there was no action all morning. Then when Patty and I went out to the store to pick up a couple things a truck of some kind must have come and delivered the bags of mortar and sand as it was there when we got back The boys were not here so no one was there to greet them. Now we know for sure they will start Monday, or at least pretty sure. That is a nice pile of clean, pretty sand and if it rains hard a lot of it will wash away so they had better get to using it. There is no wood and I have no idea how it all goes together so I’ll keep my eyes open for the next step. Have a good day.
