Not Much To Show

There really isn't much to show for progress the past week. They have carved out the place for the second wall, but they haven't started building it yet. I'm glad that we didn't have to build the driveway from the lower road. We looked at a lot of steep, cliff faced lots and the driveways take up a lot of room and can be quite steep. Admittedly we don't have ice and snow, but still a long driveway is a hassle unless you have acres and acres.

We didn't see any more showrooms as James had to go to Maui to answer another set of ridiculous requests on the pedestal for four Maui electric meters that is on the edge of our property there. The county thinks everyone in our subdivision should lower these to four feet tall, though that will make the meter reading more difficult and could even damage the meters during flash floods. We have been fighting the county over this for longer than a year. So as frustrating as dealing with the City of Henderson has been it is nothing compared to trying to build anything in Hawaii. I will leave you with a short video of the only activity on the site this week -- screening rocks.
