Construction Update ~ Week 2

Not too much to report this week due to some scheduling problems.  However, they formed the dirt area where the foundation will be added to the house and for the foundation of the shop.

Here’s a picture of the 24 inch footings for the house addition.

They put up a plastic covering around the house to keep it dry in case of rain.

Next week, we will have two more loads of dirt brought in for the shop, have the plumber out, the termite guys will come spray the new areas, and the cement is supposed to be poured.  It should be a much more active week.  We’ll see how much gets done and how the weather cooperates.

Moving along! Good thing the tarp was put up. All this beautiful sunshine we've had and now it down pours!!

Oh even all that takes lots of time! I remember when we did it when building our home from the dirt up.

Good to see progress~
