If all goes well, you'll be just like us....with a big muddy hole in the back yard as we host friends and family for Turkey Day dinner. Let me know if you devise a good plan to keep any kids and/or dogs out of your mud pit...I'm failing miserably down here in Katy!
Family emergencies seem to be prevalent with the PB's this season. Our PB had 3 (self, business partner and daughter), our Project Manager had one (father in law), our stone mason had at least 2 (no detail on which family member) and one of the carpenters had one - all of which were given reasons for delays. I like to think that I am a compassionate person, but I must admit the number of family emergencies has tested that and I began to question whether or not that was also in the PB's school of business "reasons to give a customer for delay" training chapter. A successful business would have a key man risk plan where for certain deliverables they should have additional subs or backup planning for those cases. I hope all works out for your PB and you are back on track soon -Karen
.....And the project has officially started. We have dug the pool!! It was really fun to watch, plus it has been a long time coming. My wife and I have saved like gazelles (for all you Ramsey folks) since the first of the year. All of our sacrifices and saying no to friends has finally paid off.
The grass was scraped for the patio cover.
If you look close, you will see 3 sewer lines (2 PVC and 1 Clay). Of course the junction of all three were right in the way. Luckily the sewer pipes drain well, no smell no mess. These will have to be rerouted, I am not looking forward to this added cost. Stay tuned.....
I did receive good news last night. Due to the rain chance on Friday, my PB was able to work a deal with the steel and gunite guys and get them both out today. The steel guys are already at the house at 6:37 am.
