After 2 weeks away from the building site, Paul and I anxiously drove past the new house today on our way to church. We had received updates from our future neighbors and had heard of some progress (although maybe not as much as we would hope). They have moved around some of the dirt piles and back-filled in the area that our garage will sit on top of. Apparently they have also dug our septic tank. We'll definitely need that!
The picture below shows the foundation with the first floor boarded off.
The picture below is the first floor as standing on the front porch. Imagine a family room to your left and stairs heading upward to your right :)
The final picture are the trusses we hope to see up by next Sunday.... fingers crossed!
