A lot of things happened while the Big Fockers were unloading trucks, picking up truckloads of housewares and electronics, taking our regularly scheduled days off and enjoying our regularly scheduled Friday afternoon partnership meeting at Henri’s.
The wind was blowing hard on Thursday, April 29th–40 mph. (“Forty miles an hour? Bah!” said Kendra. “You Arkies are such wimps! In Kansas, 40mph is just a breeze!”)
The Fast Boys from Morrell Construction had originally planned to put the metal on the roof of Shack v2.2 but, despite our generous offer to pick them up 30 miles away in Green Forest–just in case they went all Mary Poppins off the roof–the Morrells wisely decided to wait to fool around with large, sharp objects until the weather got less… uh… breezy. So they hung the door instead.
Meanwhile, Judy’s Insulation installed the soffit in the generator shack/future employee break room (the plugs for the fan, blender & bug zapper go right under the second “G” from right):
Meanwhile, The Dons tore up the lovely pad they had just built to install a 12″ drainage pipe. As Donny the Don (not to be confused with Don the Don) put it, “Some people. Give ‘em something nice. They’ll just tear it up.” And they did.
Meanwhile, back in Shack v2.2′s Inner Sanctum, Stephen McGeehee The Electrician started getting us juiced up:
Rich & John from P&P Plumbing stopped by to re-run the outdoor water line they capped twice in last winter’s two deep freezes. And we know that Dan, Dan the HVAC man was by because we see his unmistakable tracks of conduit:
By Sunday, it was like nothing had ever happened. Except that… the metal roof was on and Doc had clearly marked the next step on the warehouse foundation:
BOB willing and the creeks don’t rise, we’ll be drilling piers for the overpass/warehouse foundation tomorrow (Monday.)
