Building our House – Day 1 and 2

It’s official, we started building our house!  I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to see a hole in my life.  We hired a worker to dig our walkout basement with a track hoe, if you could’ve seen this guy work you would’ve been impressed.  Not that digging a basement is impressive but the fact that this man could use such a large machine and use it to dig a very precise level hole was very neat.  I’m sure hubs would be rolling his eyes right now if he knew how I was describing the excavation process.
Here hubs and I are standing in front of the basement while the track hoe digs.  We look tiny.  When hubs had staked it out I thought it looked small; no wonder he shot me an if looks could kill look.  Hehe.
We also hired the local grid road maintenance workers to build up the road and most of the lane into our yardsite with a Yuke tractor and thank goodness we did because we misjudged how much dirt there was to move in order to have the correct slope from our walkout and away from the house and ended up hiring the Yuke worker to excavate our walkout and landscape around the yard.

  1. Having read this I believed it was very informative.
    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this information together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
