It has been the rainiest May on record, so we have had to re-schedule and push our concrete pour out multiple times!  Fingers crossed we can pour next week.

Meanwhile, this weekend, Austin built the stairs to the 2nd floor. This was quite the task, and involved a few hours standing in Home Depot picking out the right fasteners and lumber.  In the end, he determined it would be easiest to notch the stringers rather than install a fastener clip to each tread.


You can’t see it in the photo, but the landing is spiral-stepped to allow for the 180 degree turn and return to the 2nd floor.

It’s so convenient having access to the 2nd floor – this will assist the concrete finishers greatly when the come out to place the concrete.  Hopefully soon!
