Week 1: A Hole With a Dash of Concrete

And so it begins!  I'll try to capture these by week, so this is part Week 0 in the first pic and then Week 1 in the other two.  We had a bit of rain on Tuesday however it didn't slow things down.

Here's the "pre-dig" staked out lot:

And now our hole in the ground.  It looks like there's a lot of clay in this dirt, which is great for a foundation, but a bear to put in a fence later!

And at the end of the week, concrete footers all poured.  The aspect ratio of these is a little deceiving.  It looks like we have all garage with a side of house...

All and all it's a good start, hopefully Week 2 ends up being just as smooth!


  1. I love seeing the footers in the ground! It is somewhat deceiving to see it because it looks so much smaller than the house--NOT true!! You have the extra footage of storage towards the back of the garage and I can still see the extension in the back of the house too!! Looking good!

    Tip: It will help us bloggers who want to leave comments on your blog if you turn off the word verification. It's a pain--it makes you decipher a crazy word pattern before you can leave a comment. Thanks!

    1. Should be fixed now. I guess they buried that option in the settings for a reason... lol!
