Chapter 15 - Rain, Rain, Go Away
As everyone in East Tennessee knows, it’s been raining non-stop for the last five days. Now normally I love the rain-but not when you are trying to install bathrooms/pour concrete. This week is a huge week as far as construction goes. Our projects are:
-pour the concrete for the patio in front of the barn
-dig out the footers for the bathrooms
-pour the concrete for the bathrooms
-lay the drain pipe (prior to pouring)
Oh and did I mention that the Brown family is leading the construction project to build the bathrooms?!? Yes, you read that right!
These guys can do anything! I’ve got to say-I’m impressed every time they do a new project.
This week they built the walls and dug out the area for the bathrooms. This project couldn’t have gotten off the ground without Mr. Hardin! He has been a God send with all his help!
In theory, the concrete gets poured toward the end of the week. After that-they can put up the walls they have built and order the tin roof.
Even though the rain took up a lot of the day-this crew stayed productive. By the time the rain stopped they were ready to kick it into gear.
Let’s just hope that the rain gives us a break over the next few days!
