From dreaming and planning, through fund raising and preparations, we now move into actual construction (though on-going fund raising is still needed, and preparations for later stages continues). Yesterday, Ross the main contractor, and Sid, the foundations contractor, were out laying out the site. Sid had pretty nifty equipment for doing so.
As is usual, Jo Marie and I had to make a few tweaks as actual realities on and below ground were fully assessed.
The excavator is expected to start next week. Rerouting water lines will be needed, too.
