Alerted by Joe, we headed to Stanton Estates at lunchtime to see the first actual progress on our new home! It’s a very small step forward but it’s the beginning for sure.

The next steps hopefully also beginning this week will be forms for the footings, and then plumbing (which is buried in the dirt, in / under the eventual concrete slab that will be the base of the home).
