Or in the case of building a new home, What a difference an hour makes!
This is a picture of our land yesterday morning.
|Nothing Going On!|
Now here is a picture of our land at around 9:00 in the morning.
|Property Lines Marked|
They surveyed our property, marked our property lines and then staked out the footprint of our house!
I LOVE where they positioned our home! We have a shorter front yard but a HUGE backyard, which is perfect since our goal is to put in a beautiful pool with a great pool deck. And with the way they have positioned the house we will be able to have a pool with a deck on all sides plus still have some yard left over!
Just about an hour later....
I think I scared the man in the Tomcat so I did my very best to stay away for a few hours.
I did sneak down at lunch time to see what was going on and here is what I saw
|Lots of Dirt!|
Here is what the land looked like yesterday when Micah got home from work (around 6:00 p.m.)
|Almost finished with the clearing!|
They are almost done clearing the land (I think they should finish sometime today). You can see where the drive-way will be when the house is finished (it will be stone pavers, not crushed gravel).
|Love the placement of the house|
You get a much better idea from the above picture of how large our home is going to be. The two red flags in the front mark the corners of the house.
|From the back of the house|
We have our pre-construction meeting this morning (I made three different kinds of muffins- recipes coming soon) and so I should have another update tomorrow with more information and of course more pictures!
I cannot even begin to tell you the JOY that I felt yesterday when I walked down to the land and saw them working! This has been such a long road and full of long days and sleepless nights but it has also been a wonderful time of seeing the Hand of God in our lives. With everything that has happened in making this dream a reality there is no way that we could ever believe that this house was not a Gift from the Lord.
