Construction Journal April 2004
Underground plumbing and electrical are done and inspected. That was a fairly smooth process except for that it took what seemed like forever with all the delays! We had our first rattler that I had to have Monty, the plumber kill for me. I just couldn’t kill it and Mark told me I had to before the kids got up here that afternoon. (2020 sidenote: we learned how to catch and relocate after this)
18 - We had a stray dog wander in and it will not leave! I guess we now have a dog and have named her Coyo since she looks kinda like a coyote. (2020 sidenote: Coyo became a beloved member of our family and was with us until August of 2012 when she sadly passed away from cancer. We still miss her terribly)
24 - Concrete was finished pouring on Saturday afternoon and we started standing posts on Sunday.
28 – Mark and I completed all the posts, hardy frames, and sill plates by that Wednesday.
It's really looking like a house now…
