We have been on a break for a month with the house. The VA required soil testing, which took a month to get back.
Now the soil is good and we are rolling again. Last week, before Thanksgiving, they poured the footers and stem walls. This week they will be putting in the plumbing and finishing the foundation. Hopefully they will start on the frame at the end of the week.
I will come back next week with an update and hopefully pictures.
