Excavation Begins

This week, the build site was leveled and then excavated for the foundation work next week. Everything is proceeding nicely. On Tuesday (after Memorial Day), the foundation work should begin. We think that will take 2 weeks, and then we will start framing mid-June.

Construction Begins / Drone Footage

Today, May 20th, construction begins on our new house with Excavation. Over the past 4 weeks, we have removed around 80 trees from the construction site / drain field area.

We had to remove some beautiful Oak trees as well as Poplar, Cottonwood, Birch and Pine Trees. Most will become firewood. We did save 2 large Oak Logs we will take to the sawmill and use for something in the future.

I also bought a small / low-cost drone to document the construction process; I plan to take the same picture every day. The drone is a Potensic Atom with a 3 axis gimble for the video camera.

Here is my first public video with the drone.
