I’ll admit it. I’m tired of shoveling snow. We had close to three feet at the site, and during my “vacation” last week I spent many an hour removing wet, heavy, cement-like snow from the foundation and site. All is well though, and it was helpful at some level, especially as we move toward raising the walls Monday.

We spent some time Saturday morning with Mikel and Stefan as they continue their board form work. It’s incredibly time consuming, but we’re pretty thrilled with how things look. Matt stopped by and seemed equally enthusiastic.

While shoveling Friday I was surprised to see a giant semi/crane backing down the driveway. Turns out it was our septic tank being delivered. A good test-run anyway, since we’ll have other semis delivering SIP panels on Monday, and the septic truck made it down our steep (and snowy) driveway without a problem.

Anyway, pretty cool to check out the super-macho crane truck, although it’s crazy to me that the workers stood BELOW the septic tank as it’s being lowered. The thing is a giant concrete poo bunker, and must weigh many thousands of pounds. Yikes.

After a good 10 days of gray skies, yesterday was finally sunny. And even though they have nothing to do with our construction process, I couldn’t help but take a couple of pics at sunset. Such a beautiful, wintery evening.
