The Lulls of Construction

We have had a lull in construction this past week or so.  You may remember me telling you about the time it would take for the slab to cure?  Well...  We had a cold snap right after the slab was poured.  This made the curing process a bit longer than expected.

Things have gotten off high center.  The cables for the Post-Tension System were pulled to their 25,000 PSI.

The cables went from this,


When the brick is laid, it will cover the cables.  There are a total of 27 cables in the slab.  At 25,000 PSI per cable, there is A LOT of tension in our slab.

Yesterday afternoon, I got a big surprise.


I heard a noise, looked out the front door and this is what I saw.

I screamed!

All of the sudden

It was better than seeing Santa!

Can you believe ALL of the walls to our house were on that truck?!

This time, I was able to send Flower Boy a text!

Hoping and Praying for walls by Christmas.  Maybe even today!
