Passed, passed, passed, and passed!
I wish I had a sexier picture to share. Visually not much has happened since the last post. The good news is that the plumbing, mechanical, electrical, and framing all passed inspection. Insulation is getting delivered tomorrow. I'm not sure how long it will take to get it installed and inspected but I'm shooting for starting to hang drywall on July 15th. Once it starts going up things will really to shape up in the basement. The fun part of painting the walls and laying the floor is right around the corner!
We had some out of town guests over the weekend. Trish and Steve came all the way from West Palm Beach, FL to not only see us but also so Trish could participate in Ironman 70.3 Coeur d'Alene with us. They arrived on Thursday and we went to Idaho not once but twice before the race, toured the Gonzaga campus, and ventured into Spokane during Hoopfest. Hoopfest is the countries largest three on three basketball tournament. They shutdown the streets in downtown and tape off basketball courts. I'm not sure of the size of the crowd but I've heard it draws close to half a million people. Based on the lines we saw at all of the food trucks I think that is pretty good estimate.
It's hard to tell but the other side of the river is wall to wall people.
After touring the city and the country side on Friday and Saturday it was time to get down to business Sunday morning. The triathlon started at 6:15 AM. We were out of bed and on the road by 4:30. The weather started off a bit overcast but by the time we started the bike it was full sun.
Unfortunately it just wasn't Trish's day. She had a lot on her mind and even though she tried she couldn't focus and dropped out of the swim. The WPB Trish and I endured the hills of the bike course and the lack of shade on the run and eventually finished.
Of course we celebrated with a big juicy cheeseburger at a local pub. Now that the race is over it's time to concentrate on the basement. Let's git 'er dun!
