Last Friday, after our afternoon get-together, we went to a birthday party across the street at Mae and Craig's house (Craig's 58th - Happy B'Day) and finally got to meet our new neighbors, Mike and Shelly. Mike is the new chiropractor in town. During the course of the evening, they invited us to come over to their side of the fence and take a look at the construction that has been going on for months.
Since we've been sidewalk superintending the project from the comfort of our front porch since it started, we were curious and leapt at the chance to see it up close and personal. Bright and early Saturday morning, we grabbed the camera and headed off to see what things looked like over there.
It was a fairly short hike, as such things go, since Mike and Shelly just opened their new gate in the front wall facing the road.That and they're just next door.

Several of the rooms had pipes, located up near the ceilings, that at first, seemed a total mystery to us, but then we decided they must be conduit for air conditioning, for the water supply and return lines and electrical power and control lines.

Here's a view of Mike and Shelly's boat dock. Enough room to tie up the fleet. Should look really nice, all landscaped and finished.
At the other end of their dock area, I snapped this photo. I've been wanting to get a piece of iron similar to this for the end of our dock.
