Two more Pics

One is the stairway...which is wide for getting things upstairs easily. The other is a shot of where the the halfbathroom will be.

End of Day Two

The framers have left and this is what it looks like....I didn't go up the stairs b/c I didn't know if they were secure or not.These are from different angles in and outside the garage and the roof trusses.

But wait there is more...............

Today I hit the snooze button almost one too manay times. As I was moving the last car out of the driveway the delivery truck was coming down the road. The framers showed up again and got busy. They are still working and I will update tomorrow to show how much they got done before they left today. They are a great crew!!!

Then on Wednesday they started building!!!!!! One wall at a time.....

Bob the Builder came by over the weekend to get things ready for the lumber to arrive on Tuesday. Eddie tore out the old bar in the basement so the plumber could access the stuff he needs to get to to do his job. On Tuesday the lumber arrived. It was the load for the first floor.

A week flies by................

I can't believe that a week has flown by since my last garage update............sorry. The short nights haven't caught up with me and I haven't taken too many naps. I will try to do sevearl posts today to get things caught up.

They got the cement poured last Friday.

I really hope my neighbors like us!!!

Well I didn't these pictures posted yesterday because the guys were here until 10:30PM laying the block. I was glad that I went out to check things before I turned in because they had left the water running. This garage is going to be expensive enought without the added cost of a large water bill!

Well today was a day of waiting.....the inspector took all day to get here....but the concrete/excavator guy was on top of things and got the footer poured late in the afternoon. YEAH! So tomorrow they will be doing the block. I only took a few pictures to share.
