We left town for the weekend on Wednesday afternoon, after Brock put in a morning's worth of work preparing the wood for the stair treads. Before we left, the gas and electric company dropped by some equipment.
We were excited to get back this afternoon to see all of the work that had been done; however, the progress from Wednesday was minimal. The electrician, who was supposed to have worked through the weekend to finish up, had only installed some of the outlets and switch plates, the backhoe hadn't moved an inch since Tuesday, and the stuff from the gas and electric company hadn't been touched. There were a few small signs of headway (a light fixture here and there), but given the fact that we were supposed to be moving in the next few days, it was too discouraging to photograph.
