Let's dig some dirt!

We have broken ground officially as of Tuesday (yesterday). We got the call Monday that the permits were finally approved and the fun will begin! So Hubs and a buddy drove out Tuesday to find a beautifully excavated lot and PM sent us a photo today of..... FOOTERS! Already, man they do work fast!

Had a 2 hour NVR freak out moment today. Got info that our closing cost will be 5 times more than originally planned. Yes, that was a 5! Our LO called back within the hour and "number rearranging" is the best way I can put it. All in all, it was resolved in 2 hours. But I have to admit, I seriously almost had a heart attack. And of course as the emails went out for help, who called back on his day off? The bestest sales rep ever, that's who! The closing cost did go up some, but reasonable and due to the add ons as the process went on. THAT I can live with! I was promised updated documents with closing costs by next week, but I'm not gonna sleep right until I see them.

So, here are some pics of two days worth of work! I really appreciate our PM, we live an hour away so we can't see daily progress. Big kudos to you Rich for texting the pic to Hubby!

This first one is looking from the front right side of the lot to the back left on day 1.....

And this view is from the back left to the front right on day 2..... How gorgeous is that cement? Who knew?!

We will head out this weekend to see any additional progress. There was a truck with forms around the corner as Hubs left....ooooooh, maybe it was for us! The pics makes me so happy and I have a feeling I might lose it when I see it in person this weekend, very exciting!

  1. How awesome is that!!! It is so interesting to see how differently how homes are built based on the region of the country you live in. I would have completely freaked out too if our closing cost went up 5x. Thankfully, everything was handled quickly for you.

    1. Thank you DW! I will take that advice, especially after an email I received today that is giving me palpitations! Love your blog! I had troubles following people last week and had to manually add by URL, maybe that will work
