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.


  1. Being the sronger sex i sould know but whats a soner tube in english please ?.Weather here more snow down to -12 cold for us.

  2. Does the up-date explain it?
    "A picture speaks a thousand words"

  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?

  4. Oh now i see we in england call it piling a logical name.

  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!!!

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!"

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
