Update June 18
We had no blocks at all along the east wall yesterday. This evening you can see nine nicely stacked courses. The crew seems to be getting better and better at manipulating the blocks. Progress was also made on the other side of the house in the studio, where you can see the clear story window bucks which will give Maureen her highly-desired northern light in the studio.
The plumber said he'd be out in the morning to try again to install the pump in the well. It's generally thought that the first attempt was hindered by torque clips catching on a section of liner deep in the well shaft. Oh the things you learn when building a house! What's a torque clip look like anyway?? I'll be happy if, by the end of the day, we can use our own well water to spray down the CEBs at night.
