One of the builder’s guys showed up Saturday and staked out the house’s location and started digging a trench for the footer. That is what the picture is – a trench and some line is visible. Ooooh. The fella doing the work told Stephen that he thought they’d be pouring by Thursday. This may mean that I get to go out and start trenching and doing my underground stuff as soon as next Saturday. So, we are underway. As underwhelming as it may be to just have a trench, I am all a twitter about it.
