WE BROKE GROUND!!!

I drove by our lot today to check on the ground breaking! Since it is 35 minutes away from where we are currently living, I texted our PM to make sure we were on schedule. He responded in less than a minute! 10 points to the awesome PM! Building our dream home is super emotional for me. I didn't think that seeing some construction equipment digging a whole would affect me that much but I must admit, I totally got teary eyed driving towards it! Ok, fine. I definitely cried a little! I didn't take too many pictures because I couldn't get close enough. You will just have to look at pictures of my big dirt pile for now! They are pouring the footers today so I might go back tomorrow after-hours to get some close-up shots! Might? Who am I kidding?! I WILL be going back tomorrow.




I also took a picture of our neighbor's house. Those little flags around their property are markers for an invisible fence. I'm totally jealous of their 3-car garage!


Here's our other neighbor. They have a Dyanni Home. There were only a couple of those built before Ryan Homes took over the development. They are also the only ranch-style houses in the neighborhood. The garages you see past that house belong to another house that is at the dead-end of our street. Somehow it's not part of our development. I swear they have more garage space than house!

  2. Congrats! If you think you got emotional about the pile of dirt, just wait until there's a house standing in front of you. It's an amazing feeling. Each time we visit and there is more and more done, it gets harder to leave. In a few short weeks, we will be there to stay!
