They went to 485 today and said production went up a bit. (Not a lot) I'm going to check the static level next time I remember. They were confident that as long as we don't start a pig farm that we should have enough storage to run our house- even if children come along.

Yup- it's in the works. Leaving it up to the General Contractor who seems to be on top of that sort of thing. I'm hoping to just make it work in conjunction with a duct system for central A/C. Everyone thinks I'm crazy for spending the money on A/C but 1)I hate heat 2)I hate humidity and 3)it doesn't seem to be getting any cooler out there.

In other news I just got back from pouring more footings all by my very self. First time I've done any concrete work by myself. Thankfully it was a small and easy job. I told the driver I was a noob and he took it easy on me.

Tomorrow we'll start building walls on top of those footings and we'll be ready for a pour in no time!

Thanks for reading- nice to know that folks are watching progress.
