house update

Here's what's happening in the lot across the street. The old house was torn down 3 weeks ago. It took 2 days for the demolition. The foundation is coming along....you can see it pretty clearly in the photo. We don't know the couple who owns the land and is building the house, we've just met them briefly. But I see their car drive by in the evenings so they can see the progress. Can you imagine how excited they must be?

Wow, glad that you are back and had a great time. It's always neat to see a house go up from the ground up...keep us updated!

What fun to watch a house be constructed from the foundation up- and how excited that couple must be to be, quite literally, building a new home together!

My parent's 100 yr old house was torn down in late December. (It was where we all grew up). My youngest sister and her hubby are now finalizing the plans for their house they are building on the lot.

That's pretty fast progress across the street. Like a free video for the kids? LOL
