... let there be DIRT!

And a big hole to fit a house in. Hurray!!




















Isn't it pretty?




















We started with a hill, took a bulldozer, and removed a big chunk of hill.




















Then we realized that not enough hill had been removed to fit a house - our bulldozer friend had to come back. So hurray for the new hole in the hill!! Lots of dirt to move now...




















The kids said the piles made great play-things.



















Too bad, so sad, the piles need to go. I think I'd rather have the house....

Wow, what a fun process. You must be so excited. I have never built a home, but have watched my mom build two...exciting process for sure.

Enjoy- and God bless you richly!
