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.  

New water meter for our home

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.



  1. Hopefully the builder is just saying that month as "worst case" and hopefully it will be sooner. Crossing my fingers. :)

  2. Wow....first time seeing something like that, very , very interesting......You may have gas for a year or more?.....I had learn something new today...thanks for sharing part of your daily living..... Have a great weekend .... :)


    1. Thanks Luna. I hope that will be the case. Thank you for your nice comment. :-)

  3. It's looking like a house! Hope you're able to get in there sooner.

  4. This is interesting to me. There are tons of propane tanks around us, with so many houses out in the country, and almost all of them are above ground. Even the one we had was above ground. Hubby used to work for a propane company, so I asked him if he ever heard of one being buried, which he has, so I guess it does get done around here, but not very often. Sorry about the delay for your closing, but the house is coming along nicely. :)

  5. How exciting to be watching it happen, piece by piece, board by board, and now it coming together!!!
    Can't wait to see you move in!!!
