(3)Monday January 21, 2002 - I mainly worked for my day
job today and then went with Patti and the kids to the dentist.
I did manage to put my two stage dust collector together and hook
it up to the pipes in the floor. Below is a picture of the sunrise
(6)Tuesday January 22, 2002 - I got my well permit today
and called to schedule that to start. I have to clear out an area
for the truck to sit so they probably won't start until Thursday.
I also called the bank to discuss an extension of 30 days on the
construction period. I also finished the trim in my office including
the stair skirts. My painter is sick so I don't know when he will
be able to get started but I am ready for him as soon as I fill
in a few more holes and do a little sanding. Another thing I did
was to cut off the posts on the deck to the correct height and trim
the exterior door with cedar.
(5)Wednesday January 23, 2002 - I went and got the backhoe
from Wink's this morning and cleared the area around the well so
they can get the truck in there. I am to meet with the driller in
the morning to discuss the placement. I've been working for my day
job out at the house. It sure is peaceful and quiet out here. I
also talked to the bank today and decided to wait on locking in
the interest and get an extension of 30 days. I am going to have
put my house up for rent in the next few weeks so if anyone wants
to rent a nice house in Wimberley, send me an e-mail.
(5)Thursday January 24, 2002 - I met with the well driller
this morning and we discussed where to put the well. He said they
would probably get started on in on Monday. Realistically, it will
be about two weeks before I see any water being pumped out of the
ground. Patti came by to set some tiles in the kitchen and got about
40 tiles put down.
(6)Friday January 25, 2002 - I got a late start this morning
and didn't get out here until about 9. I cleaned up the area where
they will be drilling the well and piled up some dirt to direct
the waste away from the house. I also built and installed the toe
kick for the kitchen cabinets. This needed to be done to know where
not to put tile. I also found a couple more places where I forgot
to put molding and caulked, sanded, and filled nail holes some more.
(6)Saturday January 26, 2002 - Patti and I did more tile.
(5)Sunday January 27, 2002 - We did some more tile today
as well. I cut the pieces and Patti put them down.
