Back filling of foundation is complete

Framing has still not begun but at least on my last visit our basement had been completely back filled and our backyard graded. This now gives us a slightly better vision of how our lot is going to end up looking once everything is complete.

View of the front of our house from the street. Garage is on the left and the living room is one the right.

Looking down into the basement. This side of the basement will be under the living/dining room and the kitchen.

This photo was taken from the back corner of our lot. This should hopefully give an impression on what our backyard size is going to be like. Nothing huge for sure but not too small either. Should be enough room for Avery to play and have a swing set. You can also see the houses across the street from us here. Their closing dates are about a month before ours. This means in a months time our house better look like theirs now.

Since we had our fireplace moved this basement window also had to be moved. The new location is right under our patio doors. The opening of the patio door will be just to the left of this window though so it should be OK. Shannon already has some creative ideas on how the window can be incorporated into our eventual patio design for this area.
