PROGRESS!!!!

So we broke ground yesterday and they were supposed to pour our footers today. My husband and I drove out to the lot today so that I could get a picture of our hole. I couldn't get close enough yesterday because they were still digging when I stopped by. It turns out that they poured our footers yesterday and poured our basement walls today!!!!!! Does this mean they will start framing next week?!?! I AM SO EXCITED!!!

We also got to meet one of our neighbors. He was out doing yard work and walked over and asked if we were going to be his new neighbors. His name is Ryan and he is super nice! I didn't get to meet his wife. They also have a dog so maybe they can play sometime!

Here are some photos of our progress!

From in front of the garage, looking left. I think? Garage not pictured.

Our shadows are waving hello! We are facing the morning room. Oh, and my car is in the background!

Yes, I met my neighbor while wearing a shirt that says: "Talk Nerdy to Me"

  4. ok, the waving shadow pic is cool.
    They will pull the forms off a day after they pour, so I would expect you to see framing started and finished next week unless they are waiting for wood.

    1. The wood hasn't arrived yet. Hopefully they ordered it! When do they pour the basement floors?

  5. Congrats! Do you know when your lumber is scheduled to arrive? Ours didn't come for 15 days after they broke ground. They still have to waterproof. For our house, they waited almost a week for the walls to cure before backfilling and also had to get all the underground plumbing. Just wanted you to be prepared that things could seem a little slower between now and framing.

    1. I have no idea when the lumber should arrive. I don't plan on visiting until next Friday because I figured nothing this cool will happen between now and then!

  6. Our Yorkshire took about 10 days from basement walls to framing. There are 2 inspections before they can frame with the waterproofing being the important one -- so those can add a few days, but you might get lucky and they will start in a week. I sort of remember the PM saying they had to cure for 6 days minimum, but don't quote me on that.
