Our House Building Adventure

We bought 3 acres of raw land in Wyoming... started clearing it... dug the basement... poured cement... and started framing!

This blog details our house building adventure... building our new home... ourselves!

Below are some long awaited pictures!

We're almost done putting together the forms for the basement walls. They will be 8 feet tall when done and braced to the hilt!!!

We've been having some wind problems... The wind can be strong here in the Spring and we've had wind damage to our forms more than several times... unfortunately.

The boys got out of school last week (May 25th) and have been helping Daddy every day while I have been working on my business.

So what happens when 2 geminis...

attempt to fortify the foundation forms?

One gemini (the female version... me!) gets stuck in the house pit because the male gemini left no escape route!

Forms continue to go up...

OK, it's beginning to look like something! The foundation forms are in process. They're actually going up pretty fast.
