markers for footings/foundation

Spent all afternoon determining where the stakes should go for the footings and foundation. Tweek a little here and there to make them square.

Got more pit run the other day. Still needs to be spread out on the west side.

Heard a funny sound under the tree stump...

the kitties who found us "down at the property".
Back in July, Rich was clearning brush off the land when he kicked a tree stump. Heeekkk. Hmmm.. He kicked it again... HEEEEKKK.

When he looked under the stump... there was this tiny black ball of fur kitten, not more than 4 0r 5 weeks old.

Home came the kitty.

Meow.. Meow... down at the property. Another little black kitty!

I said OK... but if you find another one tomorrow... it's not coming home to MY HOUSE!

It's been 4 months now. We love those kitties! One for each boy!

We struck water...not gold

The basement is all dug but we struck water in the process. Rich just finished putting in a drain. No small task!!!

We got a delivery of rocks and gravel that needs to be spread around the dirt floor....

Footings next?
