Construction: Day 1-2

Holy Cannoli.

There is "movement" on our lot.   Things are happening. Shit is getting done!!!

As a reminder:  This was "before"

And now... look at our (soon to be) house!!!

They knocked down all the oak trees that were in the way of the house - and the cedars.  
(those of you allergic can thank me later for killing a few of the evil texas cedar).
If you want a re-fresher of our floor plan... click here.  

As I mentioned before we have a greenbelt behind us.  No backyard neighbors, and we get to look out into the wooded area. 

This is the front left (if you're standing in the street, looking at it) corner of the house.  

This is the back of the house.  Look at those awesome trees that will be in our yard!

The view when I'm standing at my (pretend) front door.  Obviously, there will eventually be houses there.

This photo was taken at the back left corner (when looking at the house from the street) of our backyard - looking onto the backside of the house.  We're thrilled with the size of the yard.  That was something that was very difficult to visualize with all the trees everywhere. 

So yeaaaaaa! We're so thrilled to see progress.  They said there were going to start digging for plumbing and should have it "roughed in" by Saturday.  I'm not sure what that means, but we'll find out.   It's amazing how small the footprint of the house seems at this point.  I know it's an optical illusion, but still... it's strange.  

We going to see it again on Saturday to see what the builder accomplished on construction days 3-5.
