20050602 Deck

So, here's the progress on the deck as of today.

Yes, you are seeing correctly, where there once were supports, now there is nothing. After two days of nobody showing up because of other "emergencies" another crew came out and discovered (as hubby and I thought) that the holes weren't in the right place.

The whole thing got torn down, more stuff loaded into our yard, and a promise that this foreman would stay on the job until it was done, and done right.

Ok, it's getting very tedius, dealing with the construction, the weather, the dogs, the barrier (which Meeshka decided wasn't going to hold her back tonight, so she barrelled right through it and played among the holes in the ground), and frankly, I just want my yard back, I want a deck, but this is getting ridiculous.

So, it's going to rain tomorrow, so no work. Sometime in the near future (hopefully) they'll come out, dig more holes, pour more concrete, and maybe, just maybe we'll have a deck by next friday.

Tomorrrow, the grill, furniture, and fill dirt are coming (oh joy). We measured the grill, it'll fit through the kitchen door, so it's going into the living room (our first piece of furniture up there), along with the deck furniture, and the fill dirt will go somewhere in the front yard, I could care less at this point.
