It’s been a little bit since my last entry, but a lot of things have been churning behind the scenes here.
The big one for us is that we’ve finally been able to close our construction loan! Talk about the 11th hour too! The house package is arriving on April 24th, next Monday!
This week it is all about getting started on the foundation for the house. We put our contractor on hold until we knew for certain that the loan was in place and now he is turned loose. First some finishing touches on the barn, then pushing the rest of the stump piles over the the pasture area for me to tend to, then construction on the foundation commences.
A lot of little things to do now ranging from getting our temporary utility pole for power during construction to setting up a kitchen in the barn. We also have to reorganize the barn this weekend since we emptied out one of our storage units in Granite Falls.
So expect LOTS of pictures to come! LOTS of progress to watch! In the meantime, enjoy these two recent photos of the local deer who keep watch on our land.
