We have a foundation!

Drove over to the lot yesterday morning to see if the guys had finished setting the forms. There was tons of activity going on over there. The forms looked like they were all set, and maybe the concrete would be poured later. The workers were also digging a trench around the perimeter of the development for utility cables. The local electric company was also there with huge spools of cable ready to be laid. We really couldn't get a close look because of everything that was going on.

Fast forward about seven hours. Carolyn, my wife, and her mother decide to go back so they can give me an update while I was at work. They timed it perfectly, because a concrete truck was pulling up to finish pouring our foundation. I really hated missing it, but she took some video with her phone.

Went over this morning and the forms were already off. Again a lot of activity going on, so we really couldn't get too close. We did see that another hole had been dug, so that makes eight homes under construction, at one stage or another. It's really getting busy over there!

I'll update this later with some pictures.


  1. Yay for progress! Frank, it's going to go by in a blink!

    1. I know, it's crazy how fast things are moving now.
