I have never been so excited to see a piece of flat ground and some pieces of wood...aka the beginning of our foundation. It was thrilling to see the outline of the house and begin to visualize a bit more clearly. The cement trucks poured the footings today!
The bad news is we have to cut more trees. And even worse, poor Gary spent hours terracing around them with rocks so that we could hopefully save them. But there is just no way...they can't get the cement truck in to pour the walls without cutting them down. It makes me sad to cut such beautiful trees, but I guess we can't live in them, so they have to go. So tonight Gary and his friend Brodie are at the lot, cutting trees and moving rocks so we can keep going on the foundation.
