It Is Another Frivolous Friday - Part 2

What a day! But The Villa is on the property! Kelly called me about 4:00 p.m. yesterday to tell me that she was driving by the property and the home had arrived and they were attempting to maneuver it onto the lot. I rushed over to meet her. Before the evening was over, a number of church members were present, a handfull of neighbors and Kelly's grandparents. The drivers were a bit peeved. They really don't like having to do much more than drop the package off then leave. This project was proving to be a bit more difficult than they anticipated. As it turned out, they were able to get two of the three pieces in, but the third was too long to maneuver into such a tight space. I was given the choice for them to go ahead and push the thing through, destroying a foundation wall and doing damage to the house or having them leave it in the street for anothe crew to come out. In the street it stood - all night. This morning Kelly and I were up early and over at the property to assess the situation. We spent the day on the phone with the contractor and doing a bit around our current home preparing it for an open house tomorrow. We got the call about 3:00 p.m. that a new crew was at the property with a small remote controlled dozer, putting the third piece in. We rushed over again and watched with amazement as two guys who obviously had training as kids with remote controlled cars toyed with our trailer getting it into position. They did an incredible job. So, the Villa is present on the lot. We're thrilled and anticipating the house to be set up next week, the remainder fo the foundation completed, the interior to be finished out and then we will begin to paint and get the flooring put in. A ton of work awaits us. But we are nearing completion.

...so they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly....Hills that is...

Sweet triple wide. Looks like you took the scorched earth approach to clearing the lot. Not even any weeds left that I can see!

Precisely Chris - a real beaut! 2900 square feet of trailer trash. Me being from Texas originally and my wife a true So. Cal. Valley girl, she became quite resistant when I suggested that we remove the wheels and secure them to the roof to keep the wind noise at a minimum. Yup, we 'scorched' the place - no mo weeds on this lot.
