Our first week of Construction went well, we accomplished a lot!
We dug up the driveway
and put in a french drain so the water will no longer pour straight towards the house. The water situation was what started the whole construction bender. Our front porch was rotting away as the water washed out the under side.
We dug two more trenches to place sonotubes in for the new deck and porch.
Once those were filled back in we were able to get the concrete poured and set.
We had a very good fore*woman* keeping an eye on things for us.
Thankfully we got most of the digging done before T came home because once she got in that digger she didn’t want to get out.
She spent hours in there with daddy playing around in the dirt.
Next step: Hang the joices so we could frame some walls for the porch and small addition.
It’s coming along nicely but we still have a long way to go,
for my little house on The Ridge.
