we break ground

For those who read my Christmas letter...we did get the "sign off" from the Historic District committee at their meeting on Thursday December 11 and did get the building permits issued on Friday December 12. Bright and early on Monday, December 15 workers showed up at 7:20am to begin digging the footings although it did not occur to me to record this moment with my camera.

But on Tuesday this is what we could see:


  1. Is this a picture of poured concrete which has no boxing to contain it?

  2. You're right, no boxing, just the very rigid clay. This is the foundation of a small garden wall which goes around the new patio. The foundation for the building structure comes next week.


While I write this blog for my own fun, I would also love to know what you think about what I post.
