Construction has officially started!!!  Ground-breaking May 19, 2014 – almost exactly 11 months after we first laid eyes on this property.


The Iron Wolf milling machine arrived on our property on Monday and began digging out our basement per the layout we had previously completed.  The depth of the hole varies as the natural slope of the land was factored into the plan for this basement.

We have not received our permit yet, but it is expected back today so hopefully there are no issues.


Austin found a “souvenir” rock milling tooth – he was pretty excited about that and wants to somehow incorporate it into our house.

We are just so excited to officially be “under construction”!
