It has begun

I went by the lot yesterday and there was a big pile of gravel.

This afternoon I went by again. The pile of gravel is now a temporary driveway, the plastic sheeting is up around the lot, and the foundation trench had been dug. I didn't have a tape measure with me but the the foundation doesn't look very deep and I'm curious to ask about it in our pre-construction meeting on Friday. I'm guessing it has something to do with the higher water table in this area. When I was kid there was a neighborhood under development not far from my house and I spent many an hour playing in the foundation trenches of a number of houses. I was smaller then of course but I remember them being a lot deeper.

Rear of the house where the morning room will be.

I'm not sure how much more will be done the rest of the week. A fairly significant winter storm is forecast to start tomorrow afternoon bringing 4-8" worth of snow to central Virginia. At the very least I'm expecting to have a few extra days off work. It doesn't take much to close school in this area.
