Thursday began like Wednesday ended. Load after load across the street and anywhere else we can think of. Finally I called a contractor friend of mine that was needing dirt for the guy next door. He showed up after lunch and took about 150 yards in the space of a couple hours. He will be back tomorrow and we will finish excavating a pad 50 x 80. The top floor excavation will be backfill for the bottom floors.
Of the pictures, the most telling is from across the river. Despite shelving out into the riparian buffer, we have made almost no visible impact on the shoreline.
Kevin sent me some stunning photos of his concrete work. I hope to have him join the effort. Rick talked fireplaces with me for about 30minutes today and sounds excited to be a part of this. Debbie finished two days in Chicago with Kohler. They are designing each of the bathrooms and have asked permission to come for a photo shoot when we finish. That’s cool.
