Finally, My Dream Shop #11: AND THERE WAS LIGHT

2443 days ago by Calgirl | 12 comments »

Well, I have three flood lights (but no bulbs yet) and one two-tube flourescent. Finally I have electricity! I have found that if I start working out there at about 10 in the morning, by 2 in the afternoon, I have to take a break to rest my back. Then after supper, I’m ready to get back to work. So far I have made a “scooter” to help me get all the heavy stuff out there. I’m going to tackle the drill press and maybe the lathe tonight.How glorious it will be to see...

Finally, My Dream Shop #10: He says I can start moving in.....

2445 days ago by Calgirl | 7 comments »

The Gen’l Contractor says that I can start moving in, even tho we have not had the final inspection. He had to have the plans redrawn because I moved the doors and windows. Then he has to have the plans stamped by the city before he can call for the “dry-in” and the final inspection. The target date is Wednesday but he is concerned that the holiday week will cause delays. So, I can start moving in, I just can’t place any insulation or wallboard yet. But, I can sta...

Finally, My Dream Shop #8: Rest Stop !

2464 days ago by Calgirl | 3 comments »

Wow, I’m bushed. Everything is as cleaned up as it is going to be, Someone on the cement crew liked candy bars because there are at least 6 wrappers scattered about, but my back is too sore to pick them up tonight. The lumber will be delivered tomorrow. My contractor wanted to give the cement (especially the driveway) another day to cure, so the framing won’t start until Friday. I’m supposed to figure out where to put the porta-pottie and the dumpster…......heck, h...

Finally, My Dream Shop #7: There is Certainly No Drought Here!

2467 days ago by Calgirl | 5 comments »

You would think that the trades would take Sunday off especially since it continues to rain intermittantly, but the electrician just left after installing the outlets that will be in the middle of the slab. The form (cement people) fellows were here yesterday afternoon placing rebar in the foundation and doing a little more compacting. I think they are going to try to pour cement tomorrow, however, the plastic barrier has not been placed and a part of the form where they drove their mini-tr...

Finally, My Dream Shop #6: Good to Go

2481 days ago by Calgirl | 5 comments »

Well, the stumps are ground and we’re ready to start bringing in the fill and preparing the foundation this week. We have the permit and zoning approval. The cement sub came out and placed flags for the extension off of the driveway, and also to demark where the foundation of the shop will sit. My contractor says that it will take 4 trucks of fill for the driveway extension and the shop foundation. They are going to have to approach the shop on the grass beside the driveway and will...

Finally, My Dream Shop #5: Do tadpoles jump? ~ And, I GOT GOOD NEWS TODAY, I THINK.

2486 days ago by Calgirl | 5 comments »

Whatever is in the “pond” where my shop will soon be jumps. They are tiny things so I can’t describe them but they jumped out of the way as I paddled thru on my tractor lawn mower. At times I needed fins and I almost got stuck several times in the mud. But, be it known that I was successful in cutting the water off at grass height, and we are good to go for the tree trimming tomorrow. The “Tree People” are going to bring something to lay down over some of the...
