Building progress ... Week One: We have the foundation footings up. A light scattered shower passed through on Wednesday ... just enough moisture to lessen the dust. By friday the foundation footings had been framed and poured with cement. The kids, dog, and I had an al fresco lunch in newly established backyard area.
