Remember in Pulp Fiction when Mia (Uma Thurman) returns to the table at Jack Rabbit Slims to see the food waiting for her at the table? :
Mia: Don’t you just love it when you come back from the bathroom and find your food waiting for you?
Vincent: We’re lucky we got anything at all. I don’t think Buddy Holly’s much of a waiter.
Well the architects equivalent is when he/she goes on holiday with a job barely started and returns to see (although not finished food on a plate) a huge amount of work completed while (although not in the restroom) taking a break of a few weeks.
Anyway, analogy over: here’s a few piccies of the job in question, when I left there wasn’t even foundations poured. Luckily for me, have great person to take the reins while away (Structural Engineer Paul Cuddy):
And Mia didn’t get to have a nice dessert ready for her too, as this nicely done Part M compliant wheel chair ramp on another job started while away and ready to eat on return:
Contractor: Howard Healey Construction, Swinford, Co. Mayo
