No roof yet…

No, no roof yet, but the back patio does have its new slab. The builders poured the slab yesterday afternoon, and it managed to survive last night’s rain and howling windstorm none the worse for wear, due in large part to the emergency canopy they erected. The winds tattered the plastic cover to shreds, but it worked for the most part, and only minor touchup was needed this morning. (I’m not sure if the neighbors appreciated—or even heard—the canopy snapping around in the wind all night, however…)

And unlike the original slab that was demolished, the new one is properly graded out towards the lawn (the old one wasn’t, leading to a small pond forming on the patio whenever it rained hard).

Once again, pictures… blah blah blah.
