Our most recent update is that we now have a driveway and sidewalk. Yesterday they framed and poured the drive, sidewalk, and a little pad on the north side. It is really starting to come together! By the end of this week we should see some major progress.
We also started working on planting some trees. We have 28 trees to plant, so we've got our work cut out for us, but we made a lot of progress last night in getting them all staked out and dug. We have to build some small cages for them - we don't want them to get away! Just kidding. It is actually to keep the deer and rabbits from destroying them. We are hoping that we can take really good care of them and have a nice little wind break in 5-10 years. We'll try to finish planting them tonight, but we have 28 cages to build, so it might take a little while.
Jeremy is starting to get anxious about planting the lawn, but we can't do that until we have running water. We have our well, but trying to get the plumber and electrician coordinated to get this all set up has been a tough job. We are hoping to have at least some running water by the end of the week. In the mean time, we haul it from the apartment in ice cream buckets or milk jugs with the occasional 5 gallon bucket.
More updates to come! We hope to have pictures of the floor plus a poll coming in the next week so stay tuned!!
