Well the exterior got pretty well buttoned up this week with the exception of the concrete apron outside the doors. It got it's Pecan colored paint job. Electrical rough-in and, HVAC rough-in are happening this week, insulation and sheetrock getting delivered, overhead door.
We had a stoppage of work for 2 weeks while we were out of town the first two weeks of September, just weren't comfortable with anyone being on the property while no one was home. Rough framing inspection got completed last Tuesday, then lost the rest of the week as we prepared for a shot from the hurricane that hit Cabo, but the remnants turned east and went to Texas. We lost the week other then getting the inspection done. The neighbors had 5 inches in their rain gauge when the got back in town the first week we were gone in September.
Late August, finally ready for the shop floor!

Today, walls coming out of the ground, the two deep corners have to be inspected at the 5 foot high level,
and then the rest of the block will get laid to bring it all up to the same height (Monday?). Block on the
walls gets finished this coming week, back filling the foundation and compaction, holes in the blocks get
filled with grout, and the floor slab will get poured Friday, if all goes per the plan this week.
