The crew got in four days work this week, as Friday brought heavy rain & storms coming through. They got the logs stacked to the second floor and the first floor framing done. We are having an issue with water running into the basement so David dug it out in front of the door so the gravel will drain into the french drain pipe properly. Eventually we want to do a retaining wall and steps – plenty of cinderblocks left over for that! We also hiked a few miles and saw the beavers again. On the way back to DC we stopped at the South Branch river for a swim and met a really nice couple who bought some property in Ashton Woods recently as well.
