We finally have a patio! On September 27th, they came and poured the concrete. There were many, many, MANY delays, even on the 27th. They were supposed to pour in the morning, then at 1, then at 2...I went home from work early, when I got home at 2:30, they said they were going to pour at 3. The concrete truck finally showed up at around 4. They put a board down so we would have a little bridge from the other side of the patio to the sliding glass door, so we could get in and out without walking on the patio while it dried. It is such a relief to finally have it. The rest of the work is, of course, still behind schedule. They got the pipes routed and buried before they poured the concrete, but they didn't do any of the inside work. They've showed up one day this week to do work, so there's still inside stuff to do. Supposedly, they went to pick up the windows on Monday and the window place told them that they had ordered the wrong color. They are now scheduled to be in stock on Friday (tomorrow). I've told the contractor that we need to cancel the order if they can't get us the stuff we have ordered, so we'll see what happens with that.
