Houston, We Have A Problem!

It seemed pretty simple. Pour a foundation that is EXACTLY parallel to the existing shop.  If I looked down either side of the addition, all the way to the back of the current shop, I should see a perfectly smooth STRAIGHT line.

That didn't happen.  Instead, the new foundation is NOT square and not in alignment with the current shop.  If this occurs in a small way, let's say a 1/2 off, it can be corrected by adjusting how the walls attach to the foundation so they stay square.

This foundation is 2 inches off, veering toward the house.  Resolution?  Tear it all out and start over!

A very expensive correction for the concrete company.

It looked like it was good to back-fill...

Shop Expansion: Day 2

Forgot to press the power button on the external charging battery for the GoPro today. Camera held on for a little over 2 hours of footage and then the internal battery died. So today's addition is short and sweet. Lessons learned early are gifts... as long as I pay attention!

Rick & Deb Revisit The Mariner Inn

When was the last time we stayed here?  19 years ago!

It cost us $26 dollars a night back then.  Not much has changed.

We stayed in the same room!

19 years later with a Kindle.

'Our room' is the one on the far left of the building.

19 years later!  The trees have grown and they paved the street!
