Form inspection GOOD, Pour tomorrow morning.

My contractor told a white lie yesterday. Said he was ready for the forms to be inspected Monday morning. Well, he wasn’t ready at all Monday, and the inspector drove past the house and my neighbors home without stopping.

So now when he called this morning for the form inspection, the inspector made him wait. Dale was ready for the inspection by 10am. The inspector didn’t show until around 1pm. Too late in the day to order a load of concrete. Needless to say, Dale was a little upset. Oh well, you know the saying, “don’t upset the inspector”.

Received a phone call from Dale around 3:30pm informing me that the cement will be ordered first thing in the morning. I cautioned him that there are storms that are scheduled for our area around 4pm. He said that he is going to order the mix on the dry side so that it will hold up to any rain.

I guess we will see. Because I told him I have to have a “Final” inspection, and it can’t have marks in the cement from rain. He assured me it would be ok. So I guess I’ll just have to take his word for it.

Another adventure, and I’ll be happy when this one is done!

So until next time, be safe and God Bless.

Ah the good old days in the country-where inspectors did not exist, and one could do what they wanted to do with their properity.
