Our water meter was installed over the last week. Here is what $14k buys you!
Pretty impressive? Well not all that exciting to look at, but I am sure it will be nice to have some water up there to keep dust down, etc. Unfortunately, it feels like we are making much slower progress on the drilling front. It turns out that not only can we not drill from the road but that we cannot drill all the top holes at the same time! Additionally, in order to drill the top holes we had to cover over the middle four. In addition, we will have to re-drill all holes before putting the steel and concrete in to make sure that we have a solid footing. This is all sounding very expensive. Hopefully, I can cajole my friends to help with painting and convince Chris (Mom’s boyfriend/finance/partner/etc) to come up and help with some of the interior finish work. Chris, we can do it when the surf is good! I finally got in touch with Verizon, however, Charter who said they were going to move things still is a no-show. I’ll be meeitng with the Verizon engineer today. As you can see the lines are super low.
As you can see I can easily grab the wires. I was SOOO tempted to yank, but then I think my neighbors might get a bit mad since they would loose their service.
No more holes.
I’ll be up there again today, and will report back. Hopefully the structural engineer made it up to inspect the steel so we can push forward. Progress uber alles.
