In the meantime, the landscaper has started the retaining wall and it is starting to take shape. We're now in a race against time, as the interest rates have dropped dramitically since the government took over Fannie and Freddie and we would like to refinance before the rates go back up again. The only problem is that the project (excluding the landscaping) has to be finished before the appraisal. So we have approximately 3 weeks to finish up!

Well... we're heading into the final stretch with the second phase and you know what that means - time for a break, this one courtesy again of the city of Cupertino. The atrium and garage is all prepped are ready for the foundation concrete, but the inspector wants to come back and inspect the rebar before allowing the pouring to commence. Another couple days wait while we have to practice for the NFL to get to the front door.
