There is a backhoe out at the property! They are going to "skim" off a layer of grass at the property to make it easier for the surveyor to work and put in the stakes for the house. I am leaving town on Sunday and the builder wants to be sure they have the house location approved before we go. Lloyd did promise Nicholas he would give him a room with no dog poop. That is where the 5 year old doesn't get it --- he sees the stakes, I tell him he might get this room or that room, pointing at the general area of the rooms. He inspects for dog poop before making his decision about which one he wants. Other than the room with no dog poop, the other major requirements from the kids are a trap door with voice recognition and a slide into the basement, and a secret door. Hmmm, we'll see if we can do anything at all to impress them!
Hopefully, the building department will approve everything while we're gone and when we get back in July, there will be a foundation poured.
