The building begins!

Back in mid-July, DH and I sold our first house together to pursue our dream of building a house. It's been a hectic year so far, preparing for construction, getting all of our ducks in a row, organizing and managing our money to a tee, etc. The building has finally begun! August 7th was our "ground breaking" day: the first day of construction. We had our foundation crew out there at the crack of dawn getting everything ready for our foundation to be poured. On the 13th, the concrete for our slab was done! Here are some pictures of the progress so far. Sorry the angles aren't the best. We're surrounded by woods, so there's only so much room I can back up to take the pictures.

This is the left side of the house. Front porch is the shallow part.

Facing the right side of the house from the front porch. The garage is completely cut out of this picture.
Our framers started yesterday morning, so I'll have pictures of the completely framed house by early next week! What a huge difference just after framing! It actually looks like a house now!
