Week Two

Tim held down the fort this week here as I had to travel to Florida for my grandmother's funeral.  Construction continued and I arrived home just in time to see the new concrete poured.

Site is prepped for concrete

More cool equipment- a concrete pump truck

Major Yard Work

We are lowering our patio and replacing foundation drains around our house.  Yes, our house is not yet 4 years old.  We try not to focus on that.  However, if you are building a house- get it right the first time is my advice.  It is not what we'd like to be doing with our vacation month, but it needed to be done.  Thought we'd share some pics.  While Tim and I are weighing the decisions, the kids think its just really cool to have large equipment working in the yard.


DAY 1:

DAY 2:

Its now ready for all the new piping, concrete, extended retaining wall, and new yard.  Carter is having a ball playing in the dirt.  I am already anxious to get it all put back together.
