So, today Benji showed up early this morning. He layed the rest of the rebar for the workshop and the two-car garage. Jaime came again to inspect for the second pour. Again, we passed! God is so good. At 2 pm the concrete truck came and Benji and Chris poured the pantry/laundry and workshop areas. They look beautiful! Tomorrow at 9 am the second concrete truck is coming so we can finish off the two-car garage. Boy, will that be a beautiful thing. I can't wait. Below are pictures of the stages of pouring and finishing a concrete floor. Pretty cool.

Early Morning Scramble & The First Pour
Let's start with yesterday morning...early, early morning. Tom was up until 4 am getting the insulation in place aournd the pantry/laundry area. Benji showed up around 6:30 am to finish up laying the rebar in the pantry/laundry. Mike came around 9:15 am to grade and add cinders in the workshop area, which Benji then compacted. Jaime, the inspector, came around 10:15 am and...we passed! Yeah!! We had permission for the first pour. Unfortunately, Benji didn't have enough men in place to pour the concrete. Oh well, Sammy had fun playing "like Mike".
