An update that’s not much of an update. Since the actual structure for the steps is going to be steel, we’re in a holding pattern waiting for him to get it built. It was supposed to be done about 10 days ago. I was there this morning and it’s only about half ready. Not sure why the delay.

More later

Being on someone else’s schedule is one of the most annoying parts of any job.

I understand completely. My daughters new house was promised to be done before the baby arrives (Oct 26) and now they say it MAY be done by the first of the year :( They are currently living in a 30×40’ house that we built.

Sounds like the old story of hurry up and wait, but at least you know that you are not the reason for the hold
up, and you can relax from that viewpoint.
