House building update with *pictures*!

Jessi and I got to see the work done on digging our foundation so far. There’s a lot done in just the couple days they’ve been working. They’re working on the drainage for the road, they’ve flattened out the hills, and they’ve dug a cellar hole. Hopefully, they’ll start pouring the cement for the footing for the foundation this week.

I took pictures!


I randomly checked my bank account online, and apparently a deposit of $13,674 was made to my checking account today. I called the bank, but they have yet to get back to me as to why.

(It looks like it was a disbursement from my construction loan, so it’s not really free money. It’s just… odd.)

The check is in the mail!

After a couple years of waiting for people and governments, our house will actually get started soon! The bank put some money from the loan in our checking account today, so I wrote the builder the check for 10% of the cost so that he can get started! It should arrive on Saturday if the Post Office is efficient (which I don’t really expect, but is possible), which should mean that groundbreaking could start as early as next week!

Joy and happiness! We’re gonna have a house! We’re gonna have a house!
