The parging has also been delayed because of the rain. Friday dawned sunny and hot and the first coat of parging was completed. Goodness knows when it'll be nice for long enough to do the second coat. It looks so much better now without the pink insulation showing. Starting to look like a real house again. The dumpster was delivered in the afternoon. There's still a ton of stuff to go to the dump. They also decided that it would be easier to start fresh with the wiring, rather than try and figure out where everything was going from the electrical panel. We start our 10th week in the trailer tomorrow (63 days) and there have been 25 days of rain - but who's counting?

After delays because of the many soggy days, the backfill was finally completed, and we can enter the cottage without the aid of a ladder. Yahoo!!! There were three dump trucks full of sand, and after the torrential rains on Saturday, much of this ended up in the holes that had been dug for the porch sonotubes at the front. John was one whupped puppy after digging all that out.
