December 20, 2006

The foundation forms are gone, the plumbing drains are roughed-in, and there is gravel on the bottom of the Huge Hole.

I got to meet three of our to-be neighbors.  They all seem like really nice people.  I also got slobbered on by a to-be-neighbor dog.  Dogs do that.

Forms are off!

From the front of the house.  Things are definitely taking shape! From the back of the house.  I was surprised to see the drain rough-ins already in place! These are the bolts that will be used to hold the framing in place.  (I'm sure there's a technical term--I don't know it.)

I understand the garage area a bit better now.  It's pretty clear where the garage doors (one double, one single) are going to be! I don't understand this open area in the side of the garage but it sure looks deliberate!

Drains are roughed-in!

Pump area The trench along side of the walls is going to be gone soon, so Jordan wanted a picture while he could still get it.

Tomorrow's work is ahead...

The bulldozer was there when we got there.  The excavator was dropped off while we were hanging around.  I suspect the equipment will be used to move the gravel pile around tomorrow.

Maybe we'll get a better sense of how the grading will work!
