suspense and drama
we had another inspection today. I wasn't aware it was scheduled and we hadn't yet tackled a few minor items on the list. a few frantic phone calls and faxings etc and it was mostly smoothed over again. we are hoping that we can get the same inspector from now on. the problem with two is that they have differing opinions on what needs attention to pass.
inspector decided he didn't want us to pour retaining walls w/o approval from the engineer (the same one that drew up the specs for the wall). this was caused me a great deal of stress since this was at 3.30 and the concrete was scheduled to start arriving at 3. it was close but we did get through to the engineer and he gave us the go-ahead to pour just before the trucks started to arrive.
it was a tight squeeze.

they were short two yards of concrete. a third truck was quickly dispatched. we didn't stick around to wait as the sun was gone.
pocket door frames are in to get ready for the drywall that is creeping up on us.
first drywall is up and has been taped/floated
