It’s amazing how fast our contractor is working. We’ve been so pleased with him. The footings went in yesterday and today the first pour of concrete is going in as I type this. I can’t wait to see some framing go up.

Forgive the iPhone images. I have been shooting on film and will share as soon as I can.

The top image is from a few days ago – our tiny yard got even tinier. Hopefully, with the help of our landscape design friends we can re-coop some of the natural elements we lost in the addition. The second image is this morning. Joe was taking a look at the retaining wall and footings as well as taking our daily time-lapse photo of the construction.

Earlier this month Joe bolted a tripod to our fence to do a time-lapse of the construction (see below).

Do you have a favorite house renovation blog out there? Please let me know. I’d love to find a few more to add to my links. Erin Loechner of Design for Mankind blogs for HGTV. She has a ton of posts here. Take a look.
