Day 69 – Footings are poured

After several delays the concrete contractor finally got our footings poured.  The contractor delayed the inspection more than once and on one occasion I went to meet the building inspector at the lot and nothing at all had happened.
When I arrived the day of the pour was already a concrete- and a pump-truck waiting,  Graeme from Mayco gave us a good price on the concrete. The guys got to work quickly to pour the concrete.
The pour itself went very quickly, and before we knew it it was done and everyone had left. The whole thing didn’t take longer than a couple of hours.
