The Big Dig... Foundations

This is mostly a story in images, of how this summer, our vacation house got started in foundations, and why my construction loving 4 year old thinks we are he best parents ever.

Here's a little sneak peak of some of the unpacking I did last weekend- more "finished" pics coming in 2014!

Stayathomeista modern vacation house living room with glass curtain walls


To review, we are building a vacation house (see our announcement here), and construction started in May of 2013. We are done/will be done mid-December 2013 which is something of a record. All I can say, is that we have a great contractor, and my husband and I are micro-managers, who visited every 2-3 weeks for the entire time. Although at the end, when my pregnancy sickness was too much, just hubby and our son went:)


So here's the less-than-interesting-to-most, update of what went on in May and early June.

Lovely board-formed concrete walls,


trucks for hauling gravel and soil,


me resting (it was 90+ degrees) with my little guy,


getting to stand in/on a loader,


the garage slab being poured and floated,


and a view from the driveway.
