Man, the weather has been amazing here the last two days, which meant that the grade beams went off without a hitch. The grade beams "sit" on the top of piers and provide the foundation extra stability. If there is a tornado we'll all be holding on to our foundation.
They ordered 6 trucks of concrete and needed 8, busy day at the job site. All this means that we will, weather willing, be pouring our foundation next Friday. It's perfect timing for driveway drunk!
Little plug for our contractor. He's done a great job preparing us for the things that are coming up, feeding us little decisions and listening to what we want to do with the house.
