I just hired a crew here.† Going rate is 400 day for carpenter, 600 day for supervisor† and 600 for electrician.† We are at day 3 and have footings dug, most concrete forms built, and could pour Friday except for some reason the ready mix guy wants to see the site before he sends a truck.† I\'m going with ready mix cause I want to do the pour in 2 shots, not endless mixing resulting possible substandard concrete beams.†

We should have forms removed by next Friday, and roughed out with metal stud walls with cement board.† Bought a concrete stucco sprayer, not screwing with hand throw stucco like last time.† We can do it in one shot in one day.†

The crew will go down to 2 guys after next week and I get the shop set up before holy week.
