May 18th was a big day at the lot. Not only did we finish shingling another side of the garage, but the excavation crew showed up to start work on the house. WOOT!
Excavator #1 started digging out the hole for the house foundation.
And then excavator #2 showed up with a breaker. Basically, it’s a big metal pounding thing that breaks up rock. Our house is being built on a LOT of rock, so the big guns were called in to break up enough rock so that we can get a crawl space under the house.
And then just when things had gotten exciting, I had to go back to Ottawa for a week. GAK! But it wasn’t all bad – the reason for my trip to Ottawa is up next…
