Day 1 - Digging has begun!

So, we were told last week they would start digging today. My husband drove by twice while I was at work hoping to see something happening. Finally, around 4:00 I got a text from my best friend (who already lives in the neighborhood) that they were digging!! Since they started so late in the day, they aren't done of course. Storms coming tomorrow afternoon.....hoping they get a lot done before then!!
Things look pretty good. We went back tonight and walked the lot after they left. It sets back further than we thought and is really close to the neighbor's property line on the left of the house, but it's hard to really tell at this point.  I know many people have talked about walking the lot with their PM at the preconstruction meeting. We were not even offered that..... hoping things are staked out where we want them...
 My son is soooo excited about the pond behind the house... we could really hear all of the sounds of nature tonight while we were out there! 


  1. Just found your blog. We are building a Rome in Northern VA. They dug our hole last week and are working on the footers and foundation this week.

  2. Just found your blog! We built a Victoria Falls in Maryland and LOVE it! Happy building!

  3. Welcome to the Victoria Falls building community. I love your lot! Wonderful grading, and what seems like flat wide open spaces between houses. We are now following your blog.

    We are slightly ahead of you by maybe 2 weeks. We are building in northeast Ohio. You can follow along at palmervillage.blogspot.com

  5. Thanks everyone! It's finally becoming REAL! :) I'm looking forward to blogging all summer. My husband teaches and I'm an elementary school principal. Tomorrow is my last day of work and then I'm hoping to update more of our selections on here. My husband will get to keep an eye on things all summer too! Thanks for the welcome! Looking forward to "getting to know" you all!
