November 24,2010

The floor joists were put onto our basement today.

The first picture is my future scrapbooking room in the basement. The second picture is my future kitchen on the main floor.

The house is slowing getting closer to ready for the construction crew to come and build. Just not quite sure if this is an indoor swimming pool? It was a bit of a problem getting the sump hole dug because the water kept filling the hole before we got a few shovels full of dirt out. That was some tough digging.

The garage floor is done too. It will sure feel good to have an attached garage on the house. To not have to walk outside to unload groceries will be a new thing for me. But I am sure looking forward to it.

The New House!

Well, I guess it's not a new HOUSE yet, but it is the beginning of it.

The basement was dug on October 25th, 2010. I had to drive past on my way to work that morning just to see if they were working there already. My stomach did a little flip just to think that this was really happening...this is really our basement that was being dug.

These pictures are all not in the right order, but I'm sure you can figure out which way they go.

The move to Chris and Joel's basement happened quite smoothly, other than that it was an AWFUL lot of work. But I guess after living in the same house for just over 25 years, what can we expect?

We are all settled in now and waiting for the house to be roughed up, which is supposed to start happening at the beginning of next week, MAYBE at the end of this week. I can hardly wait to see the actual house taking shape.
I'll try to keep posting pictures for those of you that are interested in the progress.
