This morning, I got to sleep in.
The builder wanted to meet at the property to set stakes where the corner of the buildings will be and talk about trees.
So, I let myself get a full night's sleep, easy morning - taking care of a few paperwork things, then meet the builder, go work on the quilt, leave and deliver another quilt, then have a drink with a few customers in the old neighborhood. I need some down time - even if it is a drink with customers.
Well, the builder called and wanted to meet earlier. Fine with me, but we were there for 3 1/2 hours! There goes my time to work. I sweated head to toe, plus all the bug spray. No working for me - I have to leave in about 20 minutes to deliver the quilt.
The final numbers came for the closing - I have to set up the wiring of the funds. Still closing on Friday!
Our builder said he wanted to have the foundation down in 2-3 weeks at the most! We will be walking on our house very soon! YEAH!!!
It really is an exciting part - the foundation. Once it is poured, the house feels so small - like it is a doll house or something, but when the walls go in, it starts to look and feel infinitely better.
I have found that others renew my sense of excitement for this build. You get so caught up in the detail that you forget to step back. Well, when I talk to people about it, they get excited either for me or the concept of them building a house one day.
Today, I am dreaming again.
