So we officially broke ground today on our new home!! We drove by the lot today and as planned there was a huge hole in the ground. The RH's crew works really fast because you could actually make out the layout of the basement. We were both surprised at how large the base of the house looked. We were once amazed at how large the lot looked and at the size of the backyard. Well, unless they change where the home sits on the lot or our eyes are fooling us on the size of the hole that's been dug, our backyard will be a lot smaller then we anticipated. I think we're both okay with that considering you couldn't pay me to cut the grass and Dwight wants to limit how much time he spends caring for the lawn. Having said all of that---we're just happy that the show is officially on the road!!
Oh wait...we're expecting another snow storm tonight and into tomorrow. This will likely slow things down a bit and if this frigid cold and snowy weather continues then it's likely that the process will be slowed down even more....oh mother nature...please cooperate!
If you strain your eye you will see Dwight in the backyard :)
Poor Morgan waited patiently while we surveyed the lot.
