Monday, Walt and Vern completed the rest of the rough electrical and the heating contractor installed the heating unit. All the rough electrical, plumbing, framing and heating had to be in before the inspector came Tuesday.
Many prayers went up for our inspection, but we didn’t pass. Most of the items were plumbing and some work a local contractor had done for us. The rest of Tuesday and all day Wednesday the guys worked on correcting those items to get ready for re-inspection on Thursday. Diane and Marilyn sanded and stained deck boards. The plumber came back Thursday morning to correct his mistakes. Praise the Lord!! We passed the re-inspection Thursday.
The insulation was begun right away. By Friday noon it was about two-thirds complete. It will be finished Monday and we will have inspection on it Tuesday.
The gas company dug the trench for the natural gas line and the contractor sent the concrete truck in to pour the footings for the deck posts.
Wednesday afternoon we welcomed Norm and Carolyn to our camp. They are a welcome addition to our group.
Thursday, Diane baked fresh cinnamon rolls for break time. They were enjoyed by all!
This little community has many artists in it and on the weekend, they had an artist’s open house. Saturday some of our group went Christmas shopping at the artist’s homes, and others of us went to garage sales.
This week has been full of ups and down; anticipating passing the inspection, then failing it, but then the joy of passing it. A definite up was the arrival of our new couple, Norm and Carolyn. Every day is a gift from God and we take what He sends us, good or not so good, and praise Him for it.
