Week 2: construction update

In the past 2 weeks, we have gone from demolition to a big flat lot of dirt. It took truck load after truck load to get all of the debris off of the lot.

BEFORE: lot was on an angle

Just before they demolished the old storage shed, we discovered some fun crusty industrial pendants in the back shed that we hope to reuse in our new home.

This baby could go for $200 on eBay...and we found 8 of them. SCORE!!!!

This week, we hope to see the footings for the retaining walls and foundation poured. The lot feels so much bigger now that all of the overgrown bushes and weeds are gone. We are so proud of our dirt pile. LET THE CONSTRUCTION BEGIN!!!

A retaining wall will go behind the mound of dirt in the back corner where the old shed used to be.
