02.10.15 The start of our stained concrete process and Roy working on well pump building!

tuesdayTuesday, February 10, 2015 – Our stained concrete man needed Monday to finish up another job so he started this morning.  The vinyl guys also came today to finish up what they could while the boss is away in Colorado for two weeks!  One day this year we hope to be in Colorado so I’ll have to ask him for recommendations of places to see when he comes back.

The stained concrete guys were here early this morning.  Since live and speak godstained concrete seems to be something people don’t know a whole lot about and are interested in, I will be showing pictures and providing more description of what they are doing than I usually do.

The first thing they did was to score the concrete which makes what looks like big diamond shapes carved into the concrete leaving a 10″ space all around the rooms by the walls.  We only had the living room and kitchen scored.  The rest of the rooms will just be stained.

Next they sweep it out really good followed by wetting all the floors.  They mop them and suck up all the water and dirt with a big machine.  Then they buff the floor to remove the pencil markings and scuff marks on the floor.  They clean it again with clear water to remove everything the buffing brought up.  They leave it overnight to dry and will return tomorrow to do the staining and putting the Fleur de Lis in the cement.

AND ANOTHER VIEW!!! SORRY FOR ALL THE PICTURES OF THIS, I’M JUST LOVING IT!!!

The doors are locked on the house so no one accidentally goes in and disturbs all that cleanliness!!  I actually like how love in your heartit looks without any staining so there will be a lot of thinking on this going on between now and in the morning.

The vinyl guys were suppose to come back today but it’s almost noon and they haven’t arrived yet.  Hope they do, the house sure looks weird with only part of the exterior done!  Just learned they will be here Friday along with the wall insulation man.

Roy is focused today on working on the water well building.  Here’s pictures of his progress today.

I took a walk to the other side of the pond to see the house we’ve been watching being built.  They were putting down the wood floors.  Their walls are painted and the cabinets are in.  It’s a really nice looking house and we’ve enjoyed watching it being built across the pond these last few weeks.
