Dear son and I took a break from morning lessons to watch our propane tank being buried and installed.
We left once the tank was in the ground. It was cold, we were hungry, and they still needed to level it and push the dirt over the top.
Overall, the house is coming along...
All the mechanicals are in and the utilities are hooked up.
I guess it took them 3 days and numerous phone calls to find the tap for the water line (the connection from our lot to the water at the street). Thankfully they were able to get with the contractor who developed the sub division and he actually remembered where it was! Hard to believe since the subdivision is about 8 years old.

The main thing now is getting through all the inspections, fixing anything they need to fix and get the inspectors back out.
Our project manager said brick and sand would be delivered Thursday and Friday this week. He was noncommittal as to when they would start laying the brick though.
Once all the inspections are finished, they will insulate the house and then start the dry wall process.
Unfortunately, our closing date has been pushed back and delayed.
I can hardly say the month without choking and my stomach getting in knots. The month starts with an "F" and ends with a "y".
As Scarlet would say in Gone With the Wind, "I'll think about that tomorrow."
I'll leave you with a nature picture from our "brisk" morning outdoors.
Toodles for now, hope your week is going well.
