Day 1: The beginning looks like This

leave a comment »

This photo was taken on Saturday, December 11th, but the work you see was done on Friday the 10th, the first day of construction of our house.

What you see, according to the Project Manager, is the footer of the building.  Beneath the hay there is the concrete that will anchor the building to the ground.  If the temperature warms up enough (you can’t pour concrete if it’s too cold) they will remove the wooden frames you can see, put on new frames, and pour the foundation slab and walls for the basement later this week.  On that time table, they’ll run in the plumbing into the building next week.

More pictures to come, as things progress, but it is a start!
