Schaefermeyer Home Addition Vlog #17

Well so much for videoing the progress.  They built a wall first thing and blocked the rest of the progress.  Some people just don't like being videoed.

These framers are great guys!  They are very thorough and clean.  Guess that's what happens when you have been doing it for more than 30+ years.

Please enjoy the latest video.  Not much work shown.

Tuesday was another day of framing! They are making some good progress.

They came and delivered a Porta Potty (Honey Bucket) for the workers which really helps.

These guys are very good at keeping the mess to a minimum.  They also are very good at getting this the floor joists and walls all lined up with he existing house.

Enjoy some comedic relief at the end.

Schaefermeyer Home Addition Vlog #15

It's been a while since we have had any progress on the addition.  This was Monday September 28, 2015 and we have the downstairs exterior walls up.

The framers are great guys and fun to talk to.  They are very conscious of keeping it clean knowing that our kids are going to be running around.  (Thanks Chuck!)

September 15th & 16th were both really "fun" days!

I called our contractor on Monday and asked him about getting a tarp put up for the storm that was forecast.

He said that it shouldn't be a problem.  Then he called me back and informed me that he needed to go to Moab as his son was going to be getting out of surgery by the time he got down there.

So now, not only is he telling me that he isn't worried about the water, but that he's not even going to be around!

Well the rain came!  And it came down!  I ended up taking the day off work and getting the tarps/billboard covering up the basement only after 1/2" of water had entered the basement.

The contractor's son had a gall stone blockage and had become septic so I can't feel too bad about him not being around.  I just wish that he would have taken the precaution when I first called him.

So it goes!  Please enjoy the video.

We have a place for the kids to ride their scooters and play.  This is while construction waits on the framers.

This isn't a construction video but is more an insight into our daily adventures.

Sept. 8th, 2015 was cutting out the existing foundation wall and hauling it off.

Labor Day was spent re-routing the sprinkler lines and testing them.

Another day another video that's 6 days late!  Trying to get these edited and posted on a daily basis isn't easy with 3 kids and everything else going on.

Our kids love watching these guys work!  I'm not going to lie, I do to!  This is pretty fun for us to be able to look back on our addition.

Today we got the footings of our addition!  I look like such a dork in these videos!  I'm sorry if you guys are actually watching these things.  Maybe I'll stop being in them and just let the construction guys do all the work!

This vlogging is not easy!  I need more hours in the day so I can get these done in a timely manor!

This was a dirt removal day and pouring of the footings.
