Not much going on construction wise at the house over the last week and a half. Things are on hold until we can get the utilities squared away. After that, they should be able to get the concrete for the basement pad and garage pad poured.
As far as the utilities go, we have been trying to locate our water tap that was put in 15 years ago. After renting a metal detector and searching for about 4 hours, we gave up. The water company went out a second time and was able to find it, right under the temporary driveway the builder put in. So we are now in the process of working with them and the builder to get the tap moved to a better location.
We have also been trying to get the local cable company to move the pedestal box that is pretty far inside our property. After 6 weeks of support tickets and 7-10 day completion promises, they seem to be finally marking the ground to get the work done. The cable company’s construction supervisor informed me that they have approved moving it 22 feet over to straddle the property line, where it should have been installed in the first place.
In the meantime we went out on the lake to cruise around and get a view of the lot from the water. Hope you enjoy the video!
