We were very excited when Laurel our designer told us that the excavator could start work on Monday, May 13.
So we were delirious when she said that they could actually start on Saturday, May 11!
The first thing I did was to take down the wall calendar and with my so-handy-for-labelling-moving-boxes Sharpie, marked a big “30” on the box for Saturday, May 11, and counted down each Saturday until November 30 — a 30-week build!
We were pretty busy yesterday with moving chores, but DD was on the spot to commemorate the moment when the excavator arrived.
It didn’t take long until the concrete slab at the back of the lot was demolished.
We dropped by after the fact to get a good look at a big pile of dirt. No surprises in the way of oil tanks, boulders, or abandoned graveyards.
We are definitely on our way.
