Just my luck...right when I go to click save, the blog entry I just typed is lost. Since I don't want to type it all over again over frustration, I'll make this short ;)
Got through the permits excitedly and immediately ran over to my excavator's last Thursday. By Friday, my house was already staked out...YEAH! They aren't suppose to officially starting digging until next week, but it was exciting to see how my house was going to layout on the lot. Although I know my ranch is more than a decent size for the hubby and me, once I saw it staked-out I did do a little freak action...and calmed down within a few minutes of measuring. It just looked so small! But once I compared it to the measurements on the plan, I knew all was good.
Then I rode by today to see if our sign we put out with our address stood the "storm" test since we were hit with rain...and what do I see, my temporary electric pole already put in place...ahead of schedule :) Can everything run like that?! THe electrician indicated he would get it in once they started to dig, which is planned for next week, but heck he must have decided to head up early. Perfectly OK with me...I can only hope the rest of this experience goes this way.
I did add a couple pictures of our stake-out to my slide show...again you can check it out at the following address: http://3645829888.slide.com/p/5/04062006+-+We+purchased+the+lot...now+to+figure+out+what+type+of?view=large
