Helpful Visit

20 Aug

We had a decent amount of progress Saturday, despite the ever-present heat. My Uncle Aldo and cousin Nick came over to help us, and we put them right to work. We pulled back off some of the joists we installed the other day (they weren’t nailed in the joist hangers yet) so they could get underneath and do some last minute concrete repairs. We wanted to make sure that any water that got through the deck would not settle, pool or run towards the foundation.

Some of the concrete we had dug up with the jack hammer exposed some dirt below, so we had them fill that in and pitch it away from the house. One of the footings for the header also had some dirt exposed so we filled that in as well and pitched it away as well.

Once the cement work was done, Ishi snuck out real quick and left her mark…
