When Tammy told me that the first plumbing inspection would happen
this week, I was quite skeptical. After all, it's the week between
Christmas and New Year's. I wouldn't have been surprised if the
entire inspecting office had shut down for the week. Fortunately,
they weren't closed down and the drains and sewer hookups were inspected
yesterday! I don't have any pictures of it, but it did happen!
The builders didn't waste any time. Yesterday: drains
inspected. Today: basement and garage slabs poured.

been moved, it's clearer how the garage door entry is going to
||There were 5 guys working--it was more than a bit cold!
One of them teased the next-door neighbor about having the best
looking driveway in the neighborhood. Guess who put it in?
||The driveway is actually fairly evenly sloped. It probably
would be closer to flat except for our desire for daylight
windows in the basement!
Basement Slab Poured
There is a drainage area to the left (north side) of the property.
We're not yet sure how they are going to resolve this one. Tammy
said her dad is really excited about the solution--but we'll need to
talk to him to get the details! It sounds as if the drain will be
moved further away from the street and back towards our side or back
