Our foundation has been released from its casings and is now taking on the semblance of a house. Pat walked around the entire perimeter today taking lots of pictures and doing an ‘inspection’ – between his training with Mr. Mole (to dig the hole) and Mr. Beaver (to build a home), he is truly an expert. If my new home turns out looking like a mound of sticks held together by mud, there is one apprentice I know who is going to be beaten to a pulp!
The lumber will be delivered around May 10th – so not much will probably go on until then – other than back-filling the dirt and possibly pouring the driveway. I’m sure Pat will claim to be an expert for those steps also — having been apprenticed to Mr. Dog and God only knows what other strange creature!
