Slab's done!

The day after the pods, slab was poured. Going pretty well so far.
Just something to christen our house.
As you can see in the background, the fence is finished.

Pods!

Foam Pods and grills laid out in preparation for slab.

Did someone say "Pipes"?!

Last Thursday the cement for the piering was getting finished. Today (Monday), I rock up after work and Boo Yaa!!! We got pipes.

Pour that Cement!

The past week or two have gone so quickly. As soon as we got the retaining wall erected, there's been significant movement on our lot almost everyday.

The House has an outline now.


We can imagine our house now. It's finally not just an empty lot.

I wonder what's over there!!!

Retaining wall blocks
