On January 1 the footings were poured. Yes they worked on the holiday since it was good weather. And now (Thursday) they are having flooding rains! I guess I’ll need to keep the ducks handy! Photos were taken on 1/2/09
1/22/09 Unseasonable cold has halted any progress on laying block. Seems the curse of bad weather has followed us here!

Just a few days after I posted this the weather broke and work on the foundation started again. If you look at the pictures toward the end of the page you will see photos that the builder took since we were not at the site for some of the major deliveries and work.
And check out February!
