What a big day. First, and foremost, we broke ground! The excavator arrived at 7 AM to begin digging the footings of the foundation....which was done by noon. We had much fun tonight walking the maze that will be the support of our home. Almost even more exciting, though, is that today we accepted an offer on our current house! What a relief. We will need to move out in October and find temporary housing, but we just feel so lucky to have sold our home (without a realtor!) in just 2 weeks...especially in this market. The final bit of excitement today was the delivery of our new (old) bathtub. We all tried it out...and can't wait to really soak in it. What a great wedding anniversary! (our 9th - yesterday)

We are actually starting construction on Wednesday! The surveyor has marked all of the exterior walls - it's pretty strange to stand where our dining room table will be and look at the actual view. While we've waited to get going, we've had our large White Oak turned into some beautiful boards. We also had a visit from a few "neighbors" tonight. Several wild turkeys live right around our lot....this guy was on our septic mound.

We moved in about three weeks ago and now that we are in it has been hard to get the house tidy enough to take photos. I managed to get the kitchen and dining area in good enough shape to get some photos done, finally. The house is nearly all finished and things [...]
