It's turning a bit chilly here
Finally we're building the much needed and much longed for garage. Not to put the car in - what a silly waste of space that would be! I see it more as a large cupboard. We've worked and worked, dug out, levelled, built the frame (and it's straight!)
and this morning at first light we were out applying the finishing touches, plastic membrane, steel mesh for reinforcing the concrete - I know my footings and foundations!
Ready for the arrival of the concrete at 9am.
At 11am we rang the concrete man, it was raining quite heavily by now
it appears his concrete delivering lorry wasn't working. I'm sure they had meant to tell us that delivery had been postponed until Monday
I am sure all will be well when the rain stops and the concrete man arrives - in the meantime just enjoy the wine and the view.
Look forward to seeing photographs of the finished result.
Into each project some rain must fall. Sorry about that. But it seems like every time we take on a project something throws a snag in it. Hope it turns out ok.
Oh dear! But what choice do you have except to be philosophical? I hope things fall into place on Monday, literally and metaphorically. Your house, glowing with its lights, looks so inviting and cosy.
Oh and thanks for the laugh re. the garage-as-giant-cupboard!
I seem to recall that your house is a long way from anywhere...I'm thinking of a post about your trip to your "local" Ikea. I imagine that the "local" concrete batch plant might not be exactly just round the corner, either! I don't know much about concrete, but does remoteness cause a problem with getting the concrete there in good condition (when the lorry is working)?
