The forms are off the foundation, waterproofing is done, and we even have the basement window!!  I was strangely moved today when I got to stop by and take these pictures.  It is a feeling that is hard to evidenced(even though no one can tell but me), by my typing sentences then backspacing them out because they didn't quite capture what I wanted to say.

At any rate, some pictures

When I stopped by, our PM drove up so it was nice to talk to him.  He said that tomorrow the city inspector will be out to look at the foundation and give it his inspection.  Then it will sit over the weekend, and the lumber is coming on Tuesday.  It will be in two loads, and where they are going to put it is beyond my imagination.  But he said they will make it fit.  Framing is scheduled to start on Wednesday, and then its off to the races!!

So thats all for now.  Everyone have a great weekend!!


  1. Once the framing starts they fly right along until just before drywall...there are a whole bunch of inspections that have to take place before they can start insulation and drywall...don't blink you will miss something.

  2. Exciting! Around here they can usually frama house in about 2 1/2 days. It'll go FAST!! (as long as the weather permits).

    BD's right. After framing is a lot of inspections and the drywall. At your Pre-drywall meeting you should have a better picture of your closing date!
