Last week’s rain gave way to sun as we hoped and prayed for a few dry days to complete the footers for inspection. This is the mucky mess last Saturday morning (just 4 days ago). But we pumped the water out and began working.
While Jack and hearty neighbor, Steve, started framing the footers, I went to Raleigh to pick up our seven-year old grand daughter Destiny to come spend a week with us. She has been a great help. At seven, kids want to be helpful and she loves to hang with us!
This photo shows today’s completed work — AND WE PASSED our first INSPECTION!!
These frames show where the concrete support footers will be poured (hopefully tomorrow).
In the meantime, we have both gotten our Virginia Driver’s Licenses and new Virginia plates. While getting inspections done, we EACH ended up getting $450 worth of repairs on our vehicles. The auto shop has a deal that they reject you, then they tell you how much it will cost to fix said rejected items, then they pass you, and take your money!
