We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our house from NC, but in the mean time we have quite a bit more work to do. My husband's friend from work has done all the dirt work for us and the two of them are working on putting up forms for the concrete. We plan to pour Sunday. Not the ideal day, but we don't have a lot of leeway and need to get it done as soon as possible and while the weather is cooperating. So tomorrow they will work to finish putting up the forms and then pour concrete Sunday.
I don't know how well you can tell it from the photos, but the forms around the outside are up as well as the first pad on the end. After they get this all done, they will still have to back fill and then level everything out so that the movers can just pull through with the trailer sections. We're getting closer anyway.
See the little dirt pile on the left? Some of that will be used for back fill but the rest will have to be hauled off.
Here's what it looked like this morning. You can see the dirt pile a lot better here. Thankfully all the equipment we need is provided free by my husband's employer - including this track hoe. My husband drives a cement mixer so they will be able to pour concrete Sunday even though they are never open on Sundays normally. We also get a considerable discount on the cost of the concrete. It's all starting to come together nicely and we are very appreciative of all the help we've had. The trailer should be out here in a week or so, depending on weather across the states.
