Nice coal free lot! Also replaced all new soil and compacted it. Lumber has also been delivered! With all this rain coming I don't see footer and foundation going up anytime soon...fingers crossed though!

1st picture is of lot last Sunday with footer completed. Other pictures are from today! Very disheartening :( It was a mess! They dug out about 15 more feet of coal, I guess and its just a muddy hole. Pictures don't even show how bad it is. I can't imagine thus don't put them behind. We broke ground 3 weeks ago and look at it :( So sad. I hope it is all okay.I am worried if coal has long term effects?

Well, they are delayed with our house! They found coal while digging so I guess they had to dig much further down and have an engineer to keep testing the soil? Now they have to refill with fresh soil before they do the footers and foundation! Ughhhh! I thought things were good! I guess things were at a haul and I didn't even know it :( frustrated! 2 weeks in and nothing is done...still just a boring hole! They said still a closing date of June 24th!

Living room furniture

Lot 83 on a windy day!!!


Trying to figure out how to do pictures before the house starts to progress!! Pictures of my family, the lot, and our new furniture!

No elevator :(

No elevator which caused a delay in breaking ground while waiting to find out! Was upset at first but realize everything happens for a reason so it wasn't mean to be! Finally broke ground Monday, so framing is estimated to start in 3 weeks..that's the fun part! We got our living room furniture ordered at levin this weekend. We got a brown leather sectional with 4 recliners, heated seats, massagers, and a built in cooler! Kids loved it! Can't post pics yet because I only have my iPad for now. On another note...kody got his second opinion from a more non aggressive surgeon and they feel we can wait this out and continue physical therapy 3 times a week, with gentle mobility. Then see if the hip stays in place and reevaluate in a year. They do not think he can handle all of that pain again and think he needs a break :) By the way I am so Happy I found this site.. Love reading all of these blogs every day!!!
