It starts. We broke ground on the garage. They dug a nice trench and set up an area for drainage. Found some big landscaping boulders down there too (not like we don’t have about 4,216 boulders already, but I’ll take a few more).
It’s going to be a while before we even think about landscaping. But when we do, I like to have a bunch of rocks to work with. I remember in Denver we paid like $900 for a landscaping boulder. Out here, I got more than I know what to do with.
The excavation went really well, and quick. Didn’t encounter anything they couldn’t dig up with the backhoe. Next comes the forms for the concrete. Once the forms are constructed, the concrete is poured. Once that’s dry, the framing is put up. And the roof. And the sheathing. Electrical. Roof. Before you know it we’ll have a garage.
With a garage comes my tools, and a shop. And inside the house we’ll have the floors installed and we’ll get some furniture here. We’ll have furniture, shop, real floors, a garage. It’ll start to feel a little less like camping.
