The Lumber Has Arrived

Everything has gone exactly as we were told it would thus far.  They waterproofed the foundation and got the sign off from the inspector early this week.  Then they backfilled and partially graded the dirt around the house, and the lumber was delivered Thursday.  I received a call from our PM this morning and he said framing will start tomorrow (Saturday).  Everything is moving according to schedule, and by this time next week the house will be almost completely framed out.  The pictures of the lot are about to look really different, really soon.  I suppose at that point I'll stop calling it a lot and call it a house...

  1. Congrats on getting your home construction underway. You will be amazed at how fast it goes.

  2. Congrats! I hope you'll be able to make it out to the lot/house over the next few days because it will change so quickly. So happy for you. The next few days will be very exciting.

  3. Our lumber is supposed to be here on Monday. I'm going out to the site today to get updated pics. I'm so excited to see the changes on both of our homes over the next few weeks.
