what's going on? not much...

Some of you may be wondering, "what the heck is going on with the garage?". Well, I'm here to tell ya; not much.

It's been since the 4th that the contractor and his workers have been out to work. They have another job that they are working on, so I guess it's down to priorities now. On the 8th, the subcontractors for the waterproof membrane came to lay down the torch-down. But since then, it's been very quiet.

I recently sent the contractor an email with pictures of the completed torch-down, the pile of deck material and the roofing material that have all been delivered.
He replied that he is planning on being done next week. He's hoping for Saturday. Well, unfortunately, he'll have to wait for us to return in order to get paid. As I mentioned to him, we're going on a bit of a vacation with our MINI club to the Upper Peninsula starting next Thursday and we will continue our vacation until the following Tuesday.

Plus, this is what we believe still needs to be done:

Roof installed
Siding installed
Windows and Door installed
Decking installed
Boulders moved
Dirt brought in for grading
Caulking (...ALOT of caulking)
Approach cemented
Electrical completed
Garage Door installed
...and this is if I'm not forgetting anything, then inspections.

I think the contractor is a bit optimistic to say the least. We'll see.

Damn....doesn't that tick you off when they start something and then move to another job?

Has the contractor looked at the weather? It's suppose to rain M-W.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that it gets done this week.

When will we see photos???

I'm nosy!!!

Wow I never would have thought a garage redo with some extras would be so time consuming. Cana't wait to see the finished product.
