It was just coincidence that your blogger showed up at the site today when the first stake was about to be driven into the ground, marking the exact location of our house-to-be. The stake is right at our front door, at the corner marking the transition to the garage.

Surveyor Jonathan Fleener handed me the flag and showed me how to spot the location (though he actually did it, so we’re sure it was correct). Here’s the sequence:

First I act like I know what I’m doing with modern (very cool) surveying equipment, then I take the flag on a wire and stick it into the ground.  The ground, being red clay, was very hard and Jonathan had to come over after the photo shoot and hammer the flag into the ground.
