Let the holes begin!
When we returned home, we were greeted by a passel of horses near the corral. We had been keeping the horses off our entire place for the past several weeks so they wouldn’t interfere with construction, but on Sunday there was the annual roundup for their hoof trimming, shots, dental checks and so on. After each horse was dealt with, it was released instead of being led back down to the neighbor’s place. Oh well. We’ll pen them up, then string them together, then return them to where they’re supposed to be at least until the foundations are poured and the forms removed. They won’t be able to do too much damage to hardened concrete with long steel bolts sticking out.
We think the house parts may arrive in a little under a month. Until we’re ready to assemble them, they’ll be stacked to the north of the site.
And the horses will be far, far away!
