That's a nice piece of land Hatch. When the pool is ready I would totally speedo it up in your pool, even if it meant going to Indiana.

Thanks! Been a whirlwind week but already discovering a few things...biggest one is the shower went cold on our first morning. We knew the heater was old but apparently on it's last legs. We have gas heat but electric water heater, trying to decide whether to covert to gas, and a decent water heater

If I am ever in indiana, I am 100% for sure just going to walk into hatches back yard and go into the pool. Hopefully he doesn’t shoot me. I apologize in advance for scaring your wife.

Side wall is “complete”

on to the longwall. I tried to wetcut tonight for the first time without the #festool vac. Made a huge mess. You can see where I started using it again.

all cutting is done. Not bad progress considering I started last Saturday.

What exactly are you doing? Putting in French drains or plumbing? I know you mentioned something about a tiny bit of water seepage in a corner of your basement the other week but this just looks like you need to rip thouse down or something. Yolo
