Guess what? We passed our footing/slab inspection! To celebrate we are having a party! Too bad I forgot to send out the invites, but you were all invited to our pour party!

It was yesterday!!!

The day began bright and early (a bit too early for this girl, which is why I did not post anything about what happened yesterday until today, I apologize, I was tired, but I took lots of pictures!!!).

I used to like to party into the early morning…but these guys like to party in the early morning. (Yeah, I’m cheesy).

How about that brown grass? Pretty classy right? It’s okay, I know you’re just jealous, it’s the middle of August and I don’t have to water my grass…winning.


To the tune of some mariachi music, they started in the inside then partied to the outside.


And these boys were absolute artists, the finish on our slab is smoother than butter. If we wanted exposed concrete floors I would be proud to show these honeys off, but exposed concrete flooring doesn’t really go with our plan.

Regardless. Matt Blaha, from Blaha construction was Mike’s sensei. He guided him through the diy part of our foundation improvements, then sent his best guys out to pour and finish our concrete. Thanks Matt! (Yes, that was a plug. He deserves it. And no, we did not pour and finish the concrete ourselves, we may be crazy but we are not stupid.) slab7_second_story_addition

And because Mike and Will (Mike’s bff – who btw hates blogging so I know I am safe to say whatever I like about him here because he refuses to read it) can’t just stand around and watch other guys work, they decided they should (quickly) build some more forms for the extra concrete.

(That’s not Mike in the pic btw, that’s Will and the pump guy – who they enlisted to help them dig. These two can talk anyone into anything.)


Now we have someplace to place our two new AC units, yay!

P.s. Today is our Raise the Roof party, and I hope you stop by! We are tearing the roof off our house.
