Day 4

by @ Saturday, June 4th, 2011. Filed under House Build, update

In just four days we went from having a lot with nothing in it to a basement dug out and walls poured.  It will be interesting to see what happens next week.

Basement walls poured

Day 2

It’s amazing how much progress can be made in just two days.  Today the entire basement was excavated and tomorrow they plan to pour the footings.  Keep your fingers crossed that the weather stays nice until after all the exterior work is done.

Emma needed to check out the excavator.

We have a giant hole in our yard!

Day 1

by @ Tuesday, May 31st, 2011. Filed under House Build, update

After the tornado last night we really didn’t expect anything to happen with our house, but I received a call from our contractor mid-afternoon informing me that digging had been done.  I guess we are officially starting the house.

May 31, 2011: Excavated our sewer and water, installed the pipe and buried it, then started digging the basement.

Last November after one to many emergency repairs on the house, Joe and I started looking at houses again.  We weren’t actually in the market to buy a house but we just happened to run across a builder we liked, a floor plan that we had been interested in for years and a lot we fell in love with.  We found that nothing else really fit our needs/wants so we came to the conclusion to build.  We have spent the winter planning and waiting to break ground and the time is finally here.

May 28, 2011 The excavator showed up at our house today, the goal is to start digging on Tuesday.
