Another week of our arena build has passed. Some days the builders worked all day, some partial days and one day they didn't work at all. I am sure they have their reasons for when and where they choose to work, while juggling multiple jobs, sharing key equipment and dealing with Mother Nature.
I walked past my window and took a few photos of the outside action from the deck:
three of these things are not like the others
There was some miscommunication about the weather vanes. When the sales guy asked me if I wanted the cupolas to look the same, I said yes. However, on the contract we signed I didn't notice the weather vanes were listed as "M" (one damn letter!) my bad. So, they put M weather vanes up on the arena with the first letter of their company name. Ugh!! Who the hell wants mismatched weather vanes? Not me. They were nice about the whole thing, and we all agreed if that is the worse thing that goes wrong on this build we are golden. Needless to say, we have horse weather vanes ordered.
end of building day nine (16 sec)
The arena should stay warmer with insulated walls.
We hired a company to blow insulation into the ceiling, once it is up.
Purr loves the arena, and the extra insulation
It was a half day in more than one way.
The builders told Brad the sky track lift is not working
so he used this piece of equipment
See the pallet...I shared some words and left.
Didn't want to watch Brad misstep and land on the ground.
Thank goodness Brad went to get a man basket from work.
Much safer. Once in a while he listens to me.
The builders plan to finish putting the ceiling up on Monday, and then come back when the door and weather vanes come in to finish up. With walls and a roof, it actually feel like an arena!!
