Finally putting the finishing touches on some rooms. Seems like we get 90% done, then get distracted and move onto something else. Ha. So family room is finally done. Just hung the curtains. The dining room is basically done other than wanting to hang a family picture canvas on the wall to the left, but we'll have to wait until spring to take it. Also the house across the street from us is almost done. Hope everyone else's progress is going well, and with any luck Spring is around the corner. (Again just crappy cellphone pics)
I'm basically blogging this to establish a timeline and for future reference. Our driveway was poured on Nov. 7th and the sidewalk that goes from the driveway to the front stoop about the same time. One part of the sidewalk is already cracked. The driveway is also spalling badly. All the dark spots that look like kitty litter is the concrete crumbling. No salt was ever placed on the concrete from the snow. I believe too much water was added to the top when they were finishing it and overworked the finish causing it to weaken. I remember the surface in that area looking "wet" for quite awhile. Also the sidewalk crack from not properly compacting the soil. Well, they better have their jackhammers ready come spring to rip the problem areas out and replace.
