Our PM had said he hoped to break ground on 10/3, so after picking up my older boy from preschool we trekked out to take a look. We followed this truck into the neighborhood then watched as he sloooooooowly backed down our street:
It's hard to see in the picture, but he's got a bulldozer for cargo. They finally backed the truck into one of the empty lots and I was able to pull up in front of ours. Here's what I saw:
No digging yet, but they've delivered the frames for the footers/foundation/basement walls!
We went and "played" in the model for half an hour, mostly so the boys could use up some energy but also so I could take more pictures for a little project I'm working on. More on that later, Nadase! ;) When we left I drove past again and that newly delivered bulldozer was perched on our lot! This was around 12:30, so they could very well have done quite a bit of work. We're going to be nearby tomorrow so I'm going to check things out on our way through in the morning.
(Also, congrats to Jessica, I hear you've been able to go non-contingent! So you won't be too far behind us. Our street is filling up fast!)
