No quilt blocks;
the blocks worked on this week
were of the cement variety...
Seven pallets of lightweight block
were delivered around 3:00 Monday afternoon.
Jesse and his crew had 4 of the pallets unloaded in no time.
They showed up at 8:00 Tuesday morning
and worked a full day,
taking a short break for lunch
and a tiny ice cream break mid afternoon.
The guys were super nice,
patiently answered questions,
taught us a little about block work,
and let the kids and I help a little (on the places that won't show ;-)
(except Bran' - he helped with the real work...)
Jesse said Brandon caught on quick
and was pretty good for a beginner.
We'll have to go back and add the block under the LEM after we move it,
and Brandon feels pretty confident that he and Tyler can do that themselves. :-)
They came back this morning again,
a little before 8 this time,
and finished up before noon.
|speaking of garages.... This was snapped right outside of the boy's bedroom - looking into (or rather, under) the garage|
|front of the house, the mudroom is there on the right :-)|
|the back porch area - the living room is straight ahead.|
(I may end up with a nice little collection of pallets :-)
|crawlspace access, under the dining room|
Daniel (the concrete guy) comes back
to get the garage ready for concrete on Friday morning.
(Jeremiah wasn't really keen to do any block work;
he was more interested in fishing...)
