Sun Room.....Day Ten (up-date)

Today was spent finishing up the outside & waiting for everything to happen. They waiting for the building inspector to check the sonar tubes for the porch & steps, the electrical inspector, & for the delivery of the insulation & the knotty pine for the interior. Of course everyone showed up at once.
Molly decided they were all there to entertain her!
How many guys does it take to unload a truck?  Especially when that truck has the wrong stuff on it!  Yup, you heard that right....they brought the wrong pine.  Jim was livid as he had special ordered it.  Supposedly the right order will be here first thing Monday!  We'll see.
This is a sonar tube filled with concrete.

  3. Dear lady from New York who is building a sun room in the winter with regard to your comment, doesn't look that cold...... looks can be deceiving. LOL

    it's 48 degrees here this morning and blowing a gale!

    It'll be a blowathon not a walkathon and I'll be putting lead bricks in Rosies pockets, just to keep her grounded.

    Oh and BTW, like the other foreigner asked, what is a soner tuber?

  5. Piling....isn't that what holds up bridges & piers? Piling as is piling stuff on top of it.

    Sonar tube refers to the actual tube the concrete is poured into. It makes a "footing" which supports the building( as in feet that support a body)...very logical!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
