In the world of home building, you never know exactly what adventure you’ll wake up to. We were a little bummed Thursday evening when we were left with a half complete gravel fill. Around 9:00 this morning we got a phone call from a truck driver Ryan had met way back. He asked us if we wanted to get the rest of the gravel and finish off the job. Generally the quarry is closed on weekends, but as the truck driver explained to us, the Blue Ridge Parkway is being worked on and so the quarry was open until 1:00 today. We dropped all plans and within ten minutes had ordered three truckloads of gravel, re-rented the Bobcat and tamper ram, and oriented ourselves in this new direction. I had to run off to work, so it was all on Ryan to knock it out. He did an AMAZING job. We are now so much closer to pouring our center slab. Hoo. Ray.
The day ended with a soak in the YMCA hot tub. Gross? Yes. Awesome? Yep.
