April 27, 2012: We finally have the start to our new business. The long awaited ground breaking arrived with much anticipation.
May 10, 2012: Pouring the cement slab, another big step in the building process. The kids had fun putting their hand prints outside of Luke's office door. Now every time we check on the building Violet finds the hand prints and puts her hand in each one until she gets to one that fits and then gets all excited talking gibberish and pointing to herself.
May 15, 2012: The framing is well under way. It was fun to see how fast the building started to look like something, and in no time at all we were seeing the plans take shape.
The kids love going to the new construction site, not only to climb the dirt mounds that are still there, but they love exploring the area. Ben is especially full of questions, and is the one that is always asking to go, and he wants to go to see the men working.
May 21, 2012: Framing is almost completed. We can now walk through rooms and the outside is taking on more of its future form. Now we are hoping that all the dimensions we chose will really be the right size, it is hard to tell with just the frames up. We have made a few minor changes and will hopefully not have to make very many more.
May 29, 2012: Windows are in, and doors followed shortly after. Ironically it all happened just before a big wind storm came, so everything was nice and protected.
