                                              Step 88 - More Materials Delivery and Preparation
                                  We know when its best to have building materials professionally delivered!  We love Mitchell's crane.

                                   This load was shipped from Miami; it's been ages since we had a large load of materials shipped in.

     We worked together to wash the plywood with a 50 percent solution Clorox to kill mold that always comes on the wood. 

We didn't have enough 2x4s so this time we used 1/2" wood strips as stickers.  Unfortunately their wasn't enough ventilation,
       so we got to wash the plywood and spread them around to dry inside the house.  This slowed Chip down a little, but
                  he was able to work on the sidewalk mosaic while he was waiting for the materials to dry.
