    We are not messing around, folks. We had a building permit at roughly 11 a.m. on Wednesday, our contractor had an excavator on site by 1 p.m., hole digging started at 2 p.m., and the footings depths were all dug out by 4 p.m. Wednesday. Then, Davido set forms for footings yesterday to prepare for an inspection and concrete pour this morning.

    This is the beginning of our first pour this morning:

    And here's the finished pour for the footings, an hour (!) later:

    I do not have words to communicate how thrilling this is for us.

    (And yes, yes, we will post elevations/drawings as soon as we can get pdfs from the architects. Then those footings will make sense.)

    What a difference a permit makes.

    AMAZING! Hopefully that permit will be the only major delay and you guys can knock this out and move in.
