More House Photos

This weekend, was a nice break from the constant house work that Ethan and friends have been participating in. So, we poured concrete last week and we have some new faces to add to the ever growing list of people that have assisted on this project. Jose and Jaime. Jamie grew up with Ethan and actually lived in the house next door for a while as a child. The mixer wouldn't stay on (something definately wrong with it) so Fernando said, let's not waste time and let's mix by hand. So, four grown men started mixing cement on the floor of the house. I called the local rental place and asked if they had a mixer (they did), asked the neighbor if I could borrow his Suburban with a trailer hitch, and off I went to get the mixer. Man, were the guys happy to see me come back with a mixer. Best, $45 rental ever! It also moved the process a lot faster. Ethan has taken off almost all the forms and is doing some cleanup today with the jackhammer, but really this is a weekend off. Next week the plywood goes up!!!!

Ok, here's pic of the house. (same album as below, but moroe progress pics added).

Meanwhile, I have been hard at work planning this wedding. After the roof goes up, we are going to spend our attention on getting the lot ready for a wedding, including some ground leveling, planting, and maybe just maybe a fence....

More to come.... also, if you have questions about coming down here, please feel free to email me. I know tradition says, don't bother the bride, but really I like hearing from you!!!
