On Wednesday the 15th, construction began on the house. They began to dig the hole for the basement. I went with my 4 year old after preschool. On Friday he asked "Can we go back to our new home to see how big the hole is now?" So, we went back and were surprised to see they were already pouring the footers. This next week they should be pouring the cement for the floor and walls of the basement.
Here is the true 'before' picture of the site.
Action shot! Pile of dirt!
One of the footers before it is completely covered with straw.
I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking at in this picture but it's part of my house so it's cool!
