Moving dirt and loving it

Throwing some rock down and tearing it up - Day 1

Day 2 - Flattened out, shaping the back yard and minus a lot of dirt

Day 2 - Finishing up and ready for the next phase
As you can see, our excavator Paul Tapani has spent the last couple of days shaping our lot to what eventually will be our house.  In the last week, we've picked up permits, set up temporary power, getting ready for setting the water meter, and getting ready for temp water.  All of these things have been relatively easy to do, even for a person like me who is what you would call the exact opposite of handy.  These days with a cell phone, and the guidance of the Adair team, you can get a lot done while not having to extend considerable energy.  I'm anxious and hopeful this continues, but confident that the Adair standard of customer service will help along the way.

We're ready to meet Jeff from the Adair Woodland office out on site this week to finalize having the lot ready to begin actual construction. 

In the mean time, we're finalizing our choices for the house and making sure we think of every last detail.  To date we've only seen what this house will look like on paper, so we are very excited to start seeing it as this progresses.

We've heard that the school district wants proof we are actually planning on building at this address, so I thought about asking Paul to dump some of the loads of dirt in their parking lot!  Fortunately, my wife has a good head on her shoulders and suggested we just provide some paper proof.  Not as fun as the dirt idea, but I guess it's better in the long run.

We'll make sure we take some pictures of the interior choices and any future progress.  Many Adair customers have commented how much they enjoyed being involved a bit in the process, I'm starting to see why.......my appreciation for this house (and it's not even started) is growing each day.

Have a great night.........Matt
