So, we finally got some work done around the new house this week. We are watching the finances (business is not the greatest this year) and this slows us down a bit. A couple of weeks ago we did get our final, so now the push is to get the house livable.

grading 1

Outside we are grading 12” off the top of the yard and we will backfill this with good soil. Our yard is DG, you can not get a shovel in the ground.

That’s a beautiful house. I know it always seems like it’s taking forever to get done. We’ve been paying as we go with ours, too. Starting to see a little light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe we’ll make it in by Thanksgiving. Thanks for the post. Love all the nice detail you’re putting in this house.

I love your house. I am just finding these pictures. My wife would just die for a porch like that.
