Yesterday was more of the same on our building process. The builder and his siding "crew" were supposed to show up Monday morning. Finally at 10am one guy with two helpers (ie his wife and son) showed up. They were painting the trim and caulking, while the guy tried to side by himself. DH asked where the builder was. He was told he's "busy trying to chase down money" and that they won't be back now until Wednesday. Good grief. And of course he still has not turned in what our banker needs on the house construction documents, so that she can get the appraisal ordered. They ended up working a whole 5 1/2 hours yesterday (typical day for them, it seems).
Today the rockery guy is back to work on the rest - put in a culvert under the shop driveway and a short rockery alongside the driveway. We also need to finish where it tapers down from the main rockery wall at our main driveway. I finally received the bid on our house garage doors. I wanted a bid, now that we had picked out doors, so I could see how far off builder was and make sure the right number was in the loan. He did better on that. He was only off $423 and it came in over $1000 less than I was expecting, based on trying to use shop garage numbers. The labor for the garage is a lot less than I estimated.
DH is sure disappointed in his friend that lives about a half hour from us. DH has tried to talk to him a couple of times in the past few months and has even asked him twice if anything is wrong and he says no, but he doesn't call or text DH anymore, nor does he or his wife interact with any of our posts on Facebook anymore and his wife used to all the time. Once in awhile she will click like on something I posted, but never anything about the shop construction. And to not even send a message of condolences about our nephew.....well, that's just wrong.
DD and her fiance are still trying to decide what/where their wedding will be next summer. They had an appointment a couple of weeks ago to look at a small venue, but the lady had to cancel the appointment, as her flight got delayed coming home. DD asked her to get back to her with a new time and she never did. DD is like "well, I'm not going to beg her to take our money". LOL. Then this weekend they went nature exploring to a place her fiance spent a lot of time at with his family growing up. It's a place he loves and has a lot of wonderful memories of. So now they are thinking they will just invite 10 people (family) and have it here:
