    Under Way

    As we posted earlier today, we have a building permit. I'll save the gory details of that struggle until another post, but we were able to finally pull the permit this morning at 11:00 a.m.

    Never one to let grass grow beneath his feet, our builder went straight to the lot and started laying out the building for the excavator. We will eventually live between the spray painted lines.

    Because we had been really hoping to have pulled our permit by the end of the day yesterday, the excavator delivered his track hoe to the lot last night. This turned out to be great because once Davido was finished with the layout, the excavator showed up and got going right away, hence our construction began in earnest at about 2:00 this afternoon.

    I had to run somewhere at 3:00 and when I came back at 4:30 they were done and had displaced a LOT of dirt.

    I can't even imagine what it would look like if we were digging out a basement.

    Through your grandfather's blog I was able to get here. Congrats on
    the house (soon to be a home.)

    I've always thought that "permit"
    was a four-letter word. Glad that
    the "word" here in the midwest is
    easier than where you are.

    How about an address so that us "disconnected" family members can Google Map your new abode ??
