We have walls!

Well today was really exciting as the concrete and pumper trucks were at the property to pour our foundation walls! For those from Vashon, that's Max from Highschool in the back with the hose. I can't wait until they take off the forms and we can see the walls.

Foundation Pouring

Yesterday the footings for the foundation were poured and today they are building the forms that the concrete will be pumped into for the walls. They'll probably pour the walls next Tuesday, then its onto the floors! It is feeling a lot bigger now that the walls are taking shape. We closed on our Loan on Monday so we can officially pay for the work being done to build our house. The construction part is just beginning but its been so much work getting to this point that I can hardly wait to get to the furninshing and decorating part! --Jenny

Foundation prepping

They're getting ready to pour the foundation! It's just a matter of days and we'll have something solid down. I hope the sun stays out and dries up the mud some!
Standing inside the footprint, it looks so small but I'm sure once it's all together it will seem much bigger.
So we'll see. It's got to be bigger than the house we're in now!

Ground Breaking

Today we broke ground on our house! Yay! I didn't think I'd ever see this day come to pass. But it finally has. Today the rest of the trees in the drainfield area were also cleared and there's a huge pile of alders to take to the mill for lumber (which means cash for us :o) We'll probably start posting things more often now that progress is being made, so check back often :o) Our goal is to be in the new house by Christmas. We'll see if that happens.
