New House

So, it has been six months since my last post.
Long story short, Kyle got the Chief Pharmacist job and we are staying in Cortez forever.
So, we decided to homeschool (that would be another post) and to build a house.

We found a great piece of land (3.5 acres) outside of town with great views in a new subdivision.
They broke ground last week, but it has been slow going due to VA inspection problems.

Here is the view of the La Plata mountains from the house.

Here is the flattened parcel where the house will be.

They are digging the footings.

They are laying gravel for the driveway.

All the footings are dug. The lines are dug and laid for the plumbing, phone and electricity.
We are waiting on the VA inspector so they can pour concrete. The framing was supposed to start next week, but now we aren't sure.

I will try to post each week to show the progress on the house. They originally told us we could move in by Thanksgiving, but with these set backs it might be December.
