The old 1870s house is gone and we are starting new! You can see from the pictures that our foundation has been installed and we're just waiting for the basement floor to be poured. My mother-in-law was nice enough to go to the site when the foundation was going in to document the process for us since we couldn't be there (work!).
I was quite pleased with what I saw and it made this process really tangible for the first time - we will have a new house! We still go to the house each week to tend to our vegetable garden and my two baby trees - a red delicious and flowering cherry blossom. This weekend we are going to see our house being built in Pennsylvania at the factory - expect to love it!
