Since I last posted, our PM had the engineers out and decided ultimately that we didn't need the drilling and pilings. Instead they started digging for our footings this week.
This was yesterday:
|Starting to dig those footings|
OK, arm not lost, but our 8-year-old dove off the side of a slide in a mean game of tag with his brother and ended up with his first break. And on his very first night of summer vacation.
To cheer him up this morning we took him and and his brother out for donuts and to check out the work-in-progress. Here's what we saw:
|Working on footings, adding rebar|
|5-year-old checking out the final digging|
|They poured the footings!|
|Not sure what the step is about, but cool.|
|Crazy patchwork of cement.|
We also took our first neighborhood walk:
|Insert house in that empty lot, left side of the street, center.|
And then in tonight's "What RH model is this?" game, I leave you all with this:
Future neighbors, what house are you building? At first I thought Yorkshire, but the front is totally flat (and you can't see from here but the side profile doesn't seem right). Victoria Falls? Anyone? Who's good at this game?
(Oh, and still waiting on word about the ceilings. Haven't gotten a definitive "no" yet. The SR says to ask the PM. The PM to ask the SR. Fingers crossed.)
