It is the end of the work week. All four porches and the garage and Pete's workshop have their foundations in and today the excavators began the back filling process, finishing the garage and two porches and making a small dent in the sand dunes.
Craig has been working alone most of the week as our carpenters unexpectedly had to stay on another job longer than planned and will not return until later in July. He has marked placements for the doors and windows and put down blue chalk lines where rooms and hallways begin and end, a graphic floor plan. We were all disappointed about the carpenters delay but seeing the backfilling process begin and the landscape around the house return to normal is gratifying too.
