'Twas The Day Before Digging

Sometimes I am not sure if it is a blessing or a curse that we live so close to our future community.  I have driven through there so much that I recognize when things have been done by my neighbors, or in the community itself.  I am sure that when everyone sees my car they are wondering who just comes in, drives around, then leaves.

Once we finally got our approval, I stopped to introduce myself just so no one thinks I am a burglar casing the community.  Everyone I have met so far has been great, and very helpful in telling me how things have went in the community.

Since our dig date is tomorrow, I thought I would take a drive through, and see if any equipment or anything was staged on our lot, and came around the corner to find the big pile of gravel as seen in the picture.

I was really happy to see that, but in listening to the weather forecast for tomorrow and how much rain we are supposed to get, I am not sure if the dig will happen. 

But maybe rain doesn't effect a dig as much as it would pouring concrete? 


  1. Yay! How exciting! I don't think rain will affect it too much unless there is major rainfall. RH is pretty good and strict with staying within their schedules and timelines. Even if there is a short delay in digging, it shouldn't affect your close date either.

  2. Yay congrats!! Youd be amazed what they do in the rain!

  3. Believe me, staying closer to your future home is certainly a blessing. I live around 15/16 miles away from my soon to be home. I get up every morning wondering what things are going to get done today on my lot. I wish I could just go there twice a day.
    CONGRATS on your dig day tomorrow. Now let the game begin!

  4. We visit our lot/house every day. I don't think we've missed a day yet! We live about 3 miles away from our new home. I love being able to stop by and see the progress

  5. Your lot looks just about the same size as ours.. we have about 0.15 of an acre.

    Side note - the fence in the background looks like what I would like to put in :)

  6. P.S. It rained when they poured our walls, and although it wasn't heavy rain, PM said that most of the time the rain won't prevent them from pouring... digging is another matter, I imagine that heavy rain may make it hazardous, since their diggers may get stuck?!

    Did they dig? :)

  7. Depending on how heavy the rain, they will continue to work. I look forward to following your journey :)

  8. I wish we lived closer. We're about an hour from our future home. Fortunately, DH works 20 minutes from our new home, so he'll be able to keep an eye on things. The hour drive will keep me from being obsessive, but I see a lot of weekend drives in our future!
    Hope the rain doesn't push things back!
