$$$ & Superior Walls

So we closed on our loan yesterday - we are officially now living the American dream and in debt up to our eyeballs... oh well things are beginning to really take shape at the property. The Superior Walls guys set up the crane first thing this morning and leveled the footings round 9:30 the walls showed up about and hour later and things really got moving.

Then they start flying in...

The semi all of the walls came in on:

The last wall being dropped into place:
And just 2 1/2 hours later....
We have our basement. The view from inside the pub front corner:
Notice the opening for the pub door is substantially larger than the one or the studio- its no optical illusion- there is an 8' door going in there.
The puppies already love that there is some shade somewhere now... They were excited after checking out the new digs.

It Begins

So the big day finally came- this Wednesday July 15th, We finally broke ground on our house. We have waited so long for this Joseph and I were really excited- I was a little bummed that I wasn't able to be there as I was attending training in Chicago, but they did a great job! We still haven't closed on our loan yet, but our broker assures us it will be anytime now. We took some video, I just have to get the newest version of i'life to get it on to the computer so we can show you all! Sorry for the photos- they are with my camera phone, I will be out there tomorrow to get some good shots. Stay tuned as we put pictures up- the superior walls foundation goes up in about a week and a half and the house is suppose to arrive in 2-3 weeks- keep us in your thoughts and prayers for smooth sailing and so we can close on our loan soon. Let us know what you think!
