Slab Poured

Finally we got the slab poured this morning - started at about 8:00 (slight delay while we searched for and found the driver of a car that was parked right where the concrete pump needed to be) - finished the concrete work at about 12:30.

Picture taken at 01:21pm today

Will be able to start tomorrow on the upper floor wall formwork, steel, etc.

Debbie left today to go and visit Betty up in Maine, with a stop in DC to visit Heather and Spencer.

Yes, we were supposed to pour the 1st floor slab, BUT, the concrete pump had a problem, so now we are scheduled for tomorrow early ---- we will see.
