Construction Week 1, Monday 5/22 June 20, 2006

Posted by jeanne in construction news, Urban Development.

First day of construction, everybody but foreman is evidently late. He sits in his f150 talking on his cell, waiting for the driveway package, a couple of loads of rocks, so when the trucks come they can get down into the site, which is at this point a street level lot that used to have a dry cleaners and a gas station on it. and a whole lot of kudzu.

He sits there all day on the phone, his air conditioner running. Beefy guy with tattoos, mid 40s. Nice guy. Wry sense of humor. Seen it all.

His presence is the only sign that construction has begun. See backstory.
