This week. It will be this week. August 19, 2006

Posted by jeff in house.

Okay, you heard it here folks. This is the week.

You may be asking “After having been wrong the last 7 weeks, what makes you think you stand a gnat’s chance in a hailstorm of being right?” If so, I can’t say I really blame you. Heck, I think I’m crazy too!

But I’m going to be right.

You see, this is the week Heather and my lives get a bit crazier. We start our fall sports seasons with tryouts on Thursday. I have a double session of volleyball and she’s got the first day of field hockey. You know that Murphy guy? No, he’s not trying out – he’s way too old. But he’s the one who’s going to make it happen. We all know that both the house and the season are going to kick into gear at the same time. That’s life.

Tripod rod #2So Heather and I got ready today. We sunk a couple of threaded rods into trees on property that are both:

  • Remaining standing when the rest the house site is cleared
  • Have a nice view of where that house thingy is going to eventually be

Put house hereFunny enough, these threaded rods are the same type as you’d find on a camera tripod, so now our camera screws into the trees. Solid enough for ya? The goal is to be able to take the same photo day after day and create some time-lapse movies of the build. The really cool thing, of course, will be to play it backward!

So, we talked to our builder and mortgage company yesterday and are ready to roll on Monday. Next week. You heard it here first (7 weeks ago).

What’s it look like now? Just like this. Without the house, of course. But soon. Very, very, very soon…

What is it they say about insanity… Something about repeating the same action and expecting a different outcome?
