House Building Update (April 13th & 14th)

Yesterday (April 13th), they came to water proof the basement and put in the french drain...
The ugly black tar is where they waterproofed it...

This morning the inspector came to inspect the water proofing, the pesticide man came to spray around and in the basement, also they spread the gravel to prep for the basement slab!

Then Uncle Lynn and Mr. Head back filled up to the house!! It is starting to look good!!

Tomorrow, the weather is supposed to get bad so I do not believe there are any building plans for tomorrow. Everyone pray for safety during this storm...

Saturday they are supposed to pour the basement floors! Hopefully, next week the framing will begin (depending on the weather).

Have a BLESSED Friday!
