Well, it has rained so much that the ground water has been seeping a bit but it's looking like it will be dry enough to plaster soon, maybe even in the next few days!!!!! The pergola is finished and the hot tub will be delivered tomorrow. WOOHOOO! Thankfully we're in for some more cool nights so I intend to use the heck out of this while we can.

i called the paver guy this morning and said he may not be able to come and they may stop working for 10 days. he is the company the pool company works with (but i am not required to use). i was concerned that he wouldnt provide the best pricing anyway so i did contact another paver company. so if he wants to wait 10 days, i may not be waiting for him.

Personally, I would bet he is observing a work stoppage due to the cv. I would wait forever rather than have a guy who has been going from place to place. It is not like it is July and swimming weather.

I think most places are considering construction crews and companies to be essential workers. They are considered essential here in Texas anyway.

Apparently here there is a fine line. They are not allowed inside a home if the owners are present. My sister is having work done on her hone and they told her they could lose their license if she were there.

There are certain instances outside that they can’t work outside.

But a lot of people wouldn't want workers inside their home if they (homeowners) weren't there. (I actually have several workers that I've worked with for years and I DO trust them to be there when I'm not, but the first time using someone, no way.)

But that really doesn't make sense if this is all about preventing the spread of the virus, since the virus could be all over the (asymptomatic) workers or all over the inside of the house (asymptomatic homeowners) or both. So ... what is the logic?

Can you please give an example? You've got me very curious about these "rules." This is in Delaware? (Just going by your location.)

Please keep posting pictures of your progress. It is a very pleasant diversion right now from the daily gloom and doom. Somehow, I find it comforting to envision you enjoying your new pool while we all practice social distancing

yeah, im not looking to punish him but i feel like if i dont try to keep things moving the delays will pile up and suddenly ill find myself without a complete pool area in time for summer.

I don't know, that was what the paper said the other day. I am guessing that was written that way to allow the contractors to have some latitude, OR, it was a poorly written article.

Re My sister had been in the house exposed to these guys for several weeks, so her attitude is that she would have gotten it from them by now. She redid a master bath, installed hardwood floors and carpeting, remodeled the kitchen and replaced a few windows. She found a fabulous house that needed some updating and she is almost ready to move in now. She has a few more days til it is done.

I did a little research and this is what I came up with. Apparently the Dept of Homeland Security has a loose description of Essential. Check out the PA. section. All kind vague. https://www.levelset.com/blog/constr...s-coronavirus/
