Our Build This Week – Episode 1 & 2

Hey guys! Well week two is all finished up and it can be summed up in one word. Rain! We had made a ton of progress from day one to seven and after that the rain stalled us.

Day 15 they prepped the basement for concrete floors. When we showed these pictures to Bens dad he noticed what a clean, good job the crew is doing. That always makes you feel good about your choice of builder when dad approves.

Below the bay window, in the notch out in the middle of the photo, is where the basement bathroom will be. We won’t be finishing off the basement, but I do believe we are going to go ahead and have the bathroom put in now to save money down the road.

Day 16 the sun started to shine and they poured the basement floors!

Our builder texted us that morning to let us know the big pump truck would be there so we could watch. It was really neat to watch the crew work the concrete. I’ll link our YouTube for you to see video from above the crew working the concrete.

The finished product! We have floors. The builder said it would be able to be walked on in a few hours and fully cured in a few days (I could be wrong on the timing).

Then it rained for two more days after this. HAHA As I write this, its Day 19. It’s been beautiful today, we are excited to head over to the house after work to see what they were able to get done in the mud LOL. I am going to try to start weekly recap updates here on the blog every Sunday.
