Yep. I'll have it completely caulked by the weekend. I'm getting in two tubes in the morning before getting ready for work. This morning was not too bad, but the forecast is 98 degrees for the rest of the week. The heat has made a difference.

Now it's time for the big ladder to the the front and back overhangs. I'm glad I went with white paintable caulk as I can see what been done so far.

Caulking is finished. Tomorrow, my neighbor and I will trench 110' for Electricity and 30' for a water line.

Looking great Ed!
Hey, is there any chance of you guys getting hit with the remnants of this latest hurricane? It looks like it is headed for Texas.

I don't know. Gutav was supposed to come up here, but made a U-Turn and headed east after making land fall. We could use some rain.

What a day. My neighbor showed up to dig a trench with his backhoe. Life was great till we hit the last 8 feet to the BrewHaus.





The brewhaus is sitting on a massive slab.



Luckily, the Equipment Rental place is only 3 minutes from my house.

I said a few words. It's going to cost me another day. On a good note, the connections on both ends are ready for me to pull three #3 cables through the conduit once the trench is complete.

I had an electrician hook up my 100 AMP service breaker. It's hot and he installed the service panel in the brewhaus today along with a main breaker inside as well.
