What can I say? I had to call in sick to work. Cough Cough and one more Cough. I've never seen a crane of this size that can lift and transport 165 tons up close. We only need a 90 ton crane but why not get a bigger one if you can. Of course I asked how much it cost.
I arrived at 7:12 and the crane was there as well as the first modular unit. There were two units 15'-10" wide and another two at 8'-0". The 15'-10" trailers required safety drivers behind them and cost an additional $1,800 than a typical trailer. Now you know.
I knew this would be done in a day but being there and seeing it took my breath away for the second time in my life. The first time was when I asked Daniela to marry me on the beaches of Colombia in the spur of the moment 12 years ago. That day with Daniela everything went wrong and not according plan. Yet in the end it was the exact way it had to happen because on that beach I knew Daniela was for me. You never know the outcome unless you keep moving forward. I got lucky with Daniela that day (actually every day) and today after 18 months of frustration we realized that we did it. We still have another 4-6 weeks but damn it we have a HOME!
There are a lot of photos so please enjoy.
There you go. 30 days and we got to this point. That includes about 4 days of no construction and another 3-4 that were only half days. I think it would be a reasonable assumption to get to this point in 15 days if organized and scheduled correctly. That would be amazing! I now have a new goal to strive for. Onto all the finishes!
