Building At Last!

Busy times ahead as yesterday we actually began grading the lot for our new home. Today found me playing in the dirt, finalizing the back deck material, watching the grading of the backyard and a nice little picturesque spot for a picnic table. I have no idea how the hole in the ground will be transformed into a lovely new house, but eventually we can call it home.

Check out my website, "This New House" over on the right sidebar if you want to follow along.

What is the house in the background? Will that be your neighbor? I could see the garage without you even pointing it out... JK!

There are three houses in the background across the street. The center one is a darling log home. We have a two acre lot.
