Happy Spring!

Happy Spring!

We celebrated the first day of spring by finally getting a basement floor! The first load of concrete showed up around 9 this morning, and the race was on. There were 6 guys working (in addition to the drivers), and most of the time they were pushing concrete around, then finishing it. It’s pretty amazing that it can go from that gloppy, lumpy stuff to a nice, smooth floor. They do good work.

So now we wait for the floor to cure, and as there’s a “chance of rain” in the forecast for most of the next week, I’m not sure when there will be further progress.

  1. Let it be. The longer the floor cures the stronger the concrete. It’s a good idea. And, besides, there isn’t a thing we can do about it, is there;–) happy weekend, Joy!

  2. Happy Spring! Hurray for a basement!! How lovely is it to have visible progress again? πŸ˜€

  3. Now you’re cooking… does that mean it might actually be spring here in a month or so?

  4. We don’t have the blossoms yet but just seeing yours is uplifting. You are going to have a blast with that new camera! Can’t wait to see the photos.
