Photo Bomb!

We visited our lot today! I'm not sure how to best add labels under each picture through the blogger app, so in no particular order:

Second Week

These pictures were taken on Sunday, May 20th after the second full week of building. Today they filled the sides with dirt to surround the foundation. This week the lumber arrives and our PM hopes to begin the framing by Friday!

We plan to meet him tomorrow after work, so we can walk the lot and get some better pictures!

It's really awesome to visualize the size of the house at this point from the "base." I also love how much space it seems like we'll have from our neighbors on each side since those homes are already there! I can't even imagine what it'll be like to own a house let alone property with it. This truly is a whole new world we'll stepping into as homeowners in 2.5 months!

This week has produced our foundation!

Hopefully we'll get up close and personal with the house soon. All of our pictures have been taken from a slight distance as we usually visit after work or have our daughter with us! Once they start framing I think it'll be easier to walk the lot. I'm getting so excited!

Hole in the Ground!

The first week picked up pace by the second half of it! Next week they plan to pour the footers and foundation. It's funny how I continually check the forecast to see if they're calling for rain. Here's hoping for clear skies!

In other news, I've been organizing and creating a ridiculous pile for a big neighborhood yard sale at my parent's house tomorrow morning. If we haven't used it in a few months, then it's outta here! The majority of the pile is baby girl clothing as those of you with kids know how quickly they outgrow 0-12 months.

Here's a few pictures from this week:

Dirty Job

Drove by our lot today to find a big pile of dirt! It rained this afternoon for a few hours but they were able to begin "digging" this morning!

PM called to say they'll continue to dig tomorrow and start the foundation!

**I'll be blogging from my iPad for a while since my computer's battery no longer charges. I'm not a huge fan of the mobile blogger device so my updates will not be very lengthy!

Thursday's pre-construction meeting was superb. We finally met our project manager and sat down to go over the logistics and selections we made weeks ago for our home. He was extremely friendly and made us very comfortable and utterly anxious to see the upcoming process.

We are set to break ground on Tuesday morning! We hope to close by the middle of August!

Yesterday we walked the lot with my in-laws who were in from out of state. We also took them to tour the model of the Milan a few towns over from us. It helped to visualize our space again since it has been months since we had been there.

Here are a few more pictures of our lot that was staked out this past week:

Nerd Alert!

This post has nothing to do with our house, but it has everything to do with blogging.

I can't seem to figure out how to "follow" any new blogs. I used to just click on the "follow" up in the top of the blogs but now I can't seem to see that on sites. I only see "share" and "report."

Is there an easy way to follow new blogs that I'm not seeing?

Our meeting today went SO well! I'll recap this weekend when I have more time!

Pre-construction Meeting...


These past three weeks have moved at a snails/turtles' pace! (Figuratively and literally as a turtle crossed the street on my drive home yesterday from work. I slowed down to 3 mph to let it make its way to the side & thought the moment was rather symbolic.)

Meeting tomorrow at 4:00pm!
