We are now exactly five months away from our new closing date and our basement walls are finally being formed. Yay!! After two years of waiting it is kind of fun to finally start seeing a house taking shape. We can also confirm that the foundation takes into account our new fireplace location which is one big worry off our shoulders. Our new worry however is the fact the lots behind our house are quite a bit higher than our lots. It will be interesting to see how the land is sloped over time and hopefully it doesn't affect us too negatively. As this is our first time buying a new home it is amazing how many factors you need to think about just when picking a lot. Where will the electrical box be? How about the street lights? What are the easements in the backyard? In the end we will still have a house though and once we move in all these worries will quickly go away. Right?
Hopefully my next visit will start to see the some framing being done.
