So (drum roll) introducing...our new home/construction site. Let me give you a tour, shall we?
Regardless it felt very celebratory to see the beginnings of our house. This may be the only time in my life I build a house so I really want to embrace the whole construction aspect of it. I plan on swinging by the site a good amount. I'm sure the construction guys wouldn't be weirded out at all if I set up a lawn chair in the street and watched them work.
But in all seriousness it is a fascinating process. Like I mentioned I have helped build houses out of cinder blocks (and mud and bricks in Africa) but aside from those much more basic types of building my knowledge of construction is pretty much nill. It will be really cool to see a house start from the ground up, especially because one day very soon it will be our home :)
