The construction of our new home has finally begun. Digging started Nov 2. Our builder says 90 days from the time they begin digging, maybe sooner. It has taken so long to finally get to this point. It was a long summer of ups and downs trying to get our house sold - it only took 4 different contracts, but it finally worked out. We originally had a lot in American Fork that we loved, but had to back out when our sale failed and then we lost it. Somehow, through a series of interesting events, we ended up with this lot in Orem. We are delighted with our builder so far and are excited to be able to watch the construction - waiting for the permit was torture.
Here is the lot before:
Here is the beginning of the digging (Quinn says he wants to be that guy using the big digging machine when he grows up)
Here is the big hole - can you believe all of those rocks?
