House Progress: May 6

It's finally happening, our new house is finally in the beginning phases of being built! We met with our superintendent last week and he explained a few of the processes that would be happening. Yesterday we headed to the lot expecting it to be a dirt field and they had already built the trench and filled it with water. The land out in Gilbert and specifically where we are building is very soft because it is old farm land. That means they need to take extra measures to make sure the foundation doesn't crack, etc. This also means we can grow pretty much anything in our soil and it will do well! Can't wait for that garden in the backyard. :)

We're going to try to make it out to our house for all the major steps in the building process and take pictures at the same spot every time. Eventually we'll turn the images into a book or frame them in a timeline layout.

Here's a few more images we took of the site yesterday.
