Even Kramer is ready to get busy! It all happened at once. We signed the loan and I started back to work with Virginia Tech as an Extension Specialist in Family & Human Development. Virginia Extension is where I started in my career–so it’s full circle and I am already loving it! I worked hard from my home office while Jack supervised the pouring of the concrete basement level floor. It turned out as smooth as glass!
Of course now that we have re-started building, it started raining, But, maybe that will raise the lake water levels which are critically low. Some people don’t have enough chain on their lift to get their boats lowered to the water while others have boats docked on dry land where there once was water.
This week, Jack will start building the first floor deck in preparation for the timbers. In celebration, we had a little date in Roanoke. While in the big city, we delivered a gift basket of Bedford Landings goodies to the contact with Hometown Bank who helped us obtain the construction loan. He took it to a bank board meeting and the next day we got a thank-you note from the bank president saying how scrumptious Jack’s biscuits were!
After joining the Smith Mountain Lake Chamber of Commerce this week, apparently they sent a tip to WSLS-TV10 about our project. In turn, WSLS is sending a team to do a story tomorrow (12-17) so we will post a link if it turns out well. Then, hopefully soon, we will have part of that first floor decking to show!
Fa la la la la!! Enjoy the season!
