House Update and a Yellow Belt!

Basement Plumbing Installed and Inspected!

We stopped by the lot yesterday afternoon to check on progress and were pleasantly surprised...

The basement plumbing has been installed and inspected...

Waterproofing on Exterior Walls and Window Drains Installed

and the waterproofing has been applied to the exterior walls.  

I did find it interesting that they have drains installed by all the basement windows.  I'd never seen that before.  Our previous 30-year old house didn't have anything like that, so I'm guessing it's some new building code.  

Our project manager sent us a note late yesterday afternoon and said they would be installing the steel beams next week, back-filling around the house and doing a rough grade.  

Seems like progress is finally starting to happen.

On another good note...  

Dear son tested out of his "white belt" and into his "yellow belt" in karate.

Dear Son Testing for His Yellow Belt

The group being tested had to show different kicks, blocks, and a series of blocks and kicks with the "commas".  The kids commas (in the picture) were rubber tipped and the adults tested with steel blades.  

Dear son will be getting is yellow belt next week!  

Congratulations little one!

I'm looking forward to a quiet Labor Day weekend.

May your holiday be blessed!
