The plan is to get one more foundation in the ground before the real cold weather sets in, then I think we’ll be all set for the winter. However, if sales picks up (sales people say there’s a lot of activity on the weekends, which is encouraging), we’ll pour more foundations. Winter construction sucks!!! Everything slows down except costs, those jump terribly, but ya do whatcha gotta do.
These guys aren’t that young 30+ something but I’ve talked to them about the aluminum forms and they want no part of them. They do a lot of work in the winter and aluminum gets too cold, the cost of switching, they’re set in their ways. What can you say. So long as everything comes out plumb and square, who cares what they use!
They poured another section of the second foundation today, almost done. The foundation hole is almost complete, surveyor coming out tomorrow to pin the hole. The framer on the first building has the second floor almost done and are setting some of the gables. With the better weather this week, things moving along.
