...today they started back-filling and ended up having to take dirt away! We had SO MUCH extra dirt it needed to be removed from the lot - 2 dump truck loads worth! I am so amazed each time I go out there with the changes...today they prepared for the retaining wall...and started stubbing in the utilities...they still need to get in the gas....framing will begin next - starting with the sub-floor and then our walls! This part is going so fast but I know it will start to slow down...we still have our fingers crossed that we can get the roof on before the winter weather hits. After seeing the dirt all pushed back in its place I was surprised - the backyard is bigger then I thought it would be and our driveway is longer then I thought too...we are still going back and forth about our exterior color but we need to decide SOON since it needs to go to the committee for approval...the builder's guys are on the hunt for our front door and all my interior doors have been found :D woo hoo everything is just falling right into place.
