1st Floor up!

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

Check out the new fun pics – I went by @ Lunchtime today…. talked to one of the guys and hopefully they’d have the 2nd Floor up by the end of today, and would bring in the big crane to put the roof on top…. YAY!

View from the left (I didn’t get to walk around that much cause I didn’t wanna get in the workers way!)

Went by at lunch today to check progress

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

Not much has happened. It rained all day yesterday, so I doubt they did anything. There is a green layer they appeared to be finishing today right on top of the concrete foundation. I put a few pics up in the Photo Gallery.

Foundation uncovered! Wahoo!

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

You can definitely see a difference with the actual foundation of the house showing. They took the foundation “walls” off yesterday, Jan 22nd.


I also added all the pics I took on 1-19-08 & 1-23-09 to the gallery.

Foundation walls set!

Monday, January 21st, 2008

We had some pretty major progress last week!

They set the foundation walls on Friday, 1/21/08! They covered it to protect it from the cold (even tho the curing concrete gives off heat!).



Next step: Remove Foundation Forms. (Hopefully tomorrow, 1/22/08!)

Excavating & Laying the foundation

So, even more exciting than STAKES is FOOTERS & foundation! By the way, why do they have to call it EXCAVATING? Just to make it sound special I guess. It really just means building out that big hole in the ground where your house is gonna go ;)

Seriously, who knew that having footers was going to be THIS exciting!

We officially have a driveway layed out… here is our driveway so far! (Remember you can click on these to make them bigger)! p1000050.JPG

Here I am standing on the edge of our “Driveway” and you can see the hole in the ground from a distance. I know, VERY exciting ;)

There’s a man in the ground, working on our foundation….

And finally, our foundation FOOTERS!
