Concrete is strange stuff in that it will actually cure under water and keeps gaining strength for years after it is strong enough to use. If memory serves most places say to wet it down for about a week and then you can continue building, but it takes longer than that before you should drive on it! Anybody remember the times? I know it varies with type of concrete and thickness, but I am not remembering good.

Ruby, your garage is starting to look real nice. I can't wait to see it when it's done.

I hope the framers will show up this week since we finally are going to have some pretty weather. We went out & bought a outdoor fountain that we plan to put in between the garage doors. I wish I had thought to take my camera to take a pic of the one on display but we had no idea we were going to buy it. It is one of those things you just have to see to get it but the color & shape of it made it just look like it needed to be there. We also looked at different ideas for floor coverings, wall coverings, etc. As for the trenches the concrete truck made in the side yard, well part of that is our property & part our neighbors. We had talked to her before starting the project & she had no problem with it getting messed up but of course it will get fixed afterword. Unfortunately driving around the carport on a regular basis or making that part of the driveway is not an option. The whole driveway will eventually also be concrete. We are accustomed to playing musical cars so no biggie for us. BTW, a nice option is that the builder thought we needed 10' wide doors so we had less worries about parking our babies! Obviously, we loved that idea. Only thing is that will move the "people" door to the side which we don't mind.

Hubby just called to say that the framers arrived & already had the walls framed up. He was really impressed by the workers saying they were moving in sync working very fast & efficiently. Wooo Hooo! Garage soon!

Looks great I have never seen a builder put on the siding before the roof until now. Although I can't see that there is anything wrong with that. You are going to love having a garage.

I guess the guys were just frustrated because the roof trusses did not arrive until today. It was raining today so no progress. :( Hopefully they can get a lot done tomorrow. Yeah, we are looking foward to it.

Mike called to say they already have the roof braces up & the roof almost on. I wonder if it will have shingles on by the time I get home?

Well, I agree with another post from earlier. I've never seen siding up before the roof and yours is on with house wrap. Hell, you may have a roof and garage doors by the time you get home!

We went out & got a couple more things we needed today so the electrician can get his work done tomorrow. We hooked up the fountain to be sure it works (not in it's intended place in front of the garage). I also planted some climbing roses by the carport fence & some vines by the ornamental fences on the other side of the house. We also added a new trellis for the vine in front of the house to grow on. Mike & I decided to take down the rails on the front porch & re-do the posts. (I will have to look for some before pics of the house when I have more time) Mike started work on one post but the rest of that job will have to wait. 2 Camaros needed quick baths. Funny how a new Garage necesitates sprucing up things around the outside of the house. Here are some pics:
