Day 2 of Construction

So we went again today to the homesite and saw all the holes have been drilled and have been filled with rebar and concrete. Will be interesting to see how they build foundation walls over these next. :). 



Yes.. Today is the day. APRIL 27, 2015 when they finally started our house.. Knock on the wood!! We are delayed by one good month and I am beyond nervous if they are gonna finish it by the end of our lease in the current apartment. But all said and done, we are very happy, excited and thankful that it finally started right. They are doing what's called pier and beam foundation. It means that since the soil is soft, they have to drill huge holes in the ground and have beams in it, on which the house will be built. We are really happy that they are doing the things right. In the long scheme of things, a couple weeks delay wont matter much, as long the house is built on a solid ground. 

Now we just pray to the weather god to not have more delays moving forward :)

The Waiting Game!!

So its been a while since I posted. Nothing much was going on except waiting for them to start our foundation. Hopefully they are going to start this week and the things get rolling. Our current lease ends in the end of July. 

Meanwhile I kept my cool looking around for some stuff online. decor ideas, paint and lots of cool DIY stuff people do. We also threw a party for our kids birthday today and enjoyed cooking a nice meal and eating with friends :). All the time I was imagining cooking in my gorgeous new kitchen.. So now hopefully, I should have some update to share by the end of upcoming week.. Happy building everyone!!

The ground is broken!!

Hello People.. We went yesterday to see this amazing sight of a big hole in the ground.. Who knew a huge dirt hole could bring so much joy.. We were all grinning from ear to ear.. Here are some pics of our precious dirt that would soon be our house.
