Monday, final week for cinderblocks.

5 man crew this morning. 3 to work the grout hose. We are now 14 ft mark and grout going up the hose gets heavy. Jerry (blue shirt Inspector) was here early to inspect the steel work. 3 man the hose one pouring and one with the vibrator in the cinder block.

This afternoon was quite. We are waiting for block (will arrive on Tues around 9)

Concerns were the saddle for the beam was not tight enough. The scaffolds are now at the 3rd level. One more to go.

Had time this afternoon to hike up the ladder and take a few pics:

Top looking down at the finish front level. Bolts are ready for trusses

Cactus next to garage. Just a great old majestic cactus with lots of woodpecker holes.

Old fashion way of hoisting block up

Natural open space land behind my lot. Clear view to the south (Phoenix and South mountain range.) Fourth of July you can see the fireworks from Phoenix

The house is my neighbor behind me. So far he has not been here
since the winter. He is going to be surprised when he return to see the back of the garage.

Picture of the tree where my son's tree house will be built.
