It has been an uphill battle. The battle of materials. Buying crushed rock, sand and cement is easy. Getting said material delivered is a nightmare. From “rain slick roads at the quarry” to “it’s on the boat” and the Philippines favorite saying “sorry sir out of stock”.
Finally we have made some head way. After a six day delay on cement and a four day delay on rock we are pouring a slab. As of today approx one half is covered in slab. Hopefully we have enough material on hand to finish in the next two days.
Day 52 we had thirty bags of cement and were able to pour the master bedroom and one half of Reez’s room. Day 53 we had zero cement therefore the crew started to install real walls. How exciting to see our master bedroom start to take shape after looking at only foundation walls for 52 days.
Our foreman “T” does not allow for slack time even with a material delay. During this time he has also built the septic tank above ground and installed a good part of the storm drain system that will also be incorporated as a french drain.
